Let me help you retire early and become free by building your passive income portfolio

Hi, I'm Nigel.

Here in NigelChua.com, I'd like to show you through my passive income experiments and adventuring exactly how you can stop trading time for money and start building and acquiring Passive Income Internet Businesses (PIIB) and Passive Income Investments (PII) that work for you.

I'm here to show you how building passive income works...but to the adventure begins with learning how to consciously live intentional and purposeful lives - because that's one of the core pillars of building and living a passive income lifestyle.

Personal development and progressive life decisions are key to growth, progress, and definitely, passive income.

If you do not aim or plan to build passive income, then how is passive income going to be generated?

I am not a proponent/advocate of get-rich-quick (GRQ), scamming, mooching (living off others, inheriting money, marrying for money, working for money, earning money without effort of learning, applying and refining - money and passive income, to me, is purely a by-product of me learning how to create or acquire assets, that, on clockwork, puts money in my pockets or bank accounts, by providing good to high value to customers and companies.

There are a few roads that I know that leads to passive income which works for me (and I like/prefer), and I hope that as you read what I do and experiment, you'd too cherry-pick which is best for you, experiment and persevere to bring you to your passive income goals.

The founding framework of the passive income lifestyle

Is a combination of: simple framework of passive income capitalism, effective and efficient living as well as progressive personal development.

  • passive income for purpose of financial independence and freedom
  • streams of passive income is created through the acquisition and building of passive income assets, specifically Passive Income Internet Businesses (PIIB) and Passive Income Investing (PII)
  • simple but high quality living as well as moderated consumerism - buying good-to-high quality of what we need
  • increasing/increased focus on creation and production for fun, passive income, personal growth
  • the decreased stresses and increased freedom increases opportunities for fun activities, serendipities, and meaningful activities

Resources & Tools Of The Trade

The tools and things that I use on a daily basis to grow my wealth, build my businesses, improve my health and more.

Passive Income Reports

Passive income reports are where I report my passive incomes and expenses, and compare them on a monthly/yearly basis, so that I have a rough idea of where the money is flowing in and out from.

Health, Wellness & Self Care

Wealth, riches and freedom wouldn't mean a thing if we've lost our health/got sick in our pursuit of them. Take care of your own health, so that you can not only have a sustainable business, but really have a long healthy life for people, relationships and causes that you care about.
