So I shared in an earlier post that I paid/signed-up for a premium Amazon Kindle Publishing course that I attended on 1st and 2nd December 2018 (Saturday and Sunday 9 AM to 7 PM). The trainer/teacher is Dominic Tay, I must say, I am impressed.
I purchased additional software to help overcome 20% of the hurdle which is worth it and I would buy the software again in a heartbeart.
Overall, a very enjoyable course and a very experienced and passionate teacher.
Now, on to WHY I signed up for this Amazon Kindle Publishing course.
So of course, I decided on attending the course because of a few reasons:
I will aim to create at least 1 Amazon Kindle book per month for now, and once I get results and the hang of things, ideally for at least 4 books a month (ie 1 per week), and it's very doable I think.
To me, a successful Amazon Kindle Publishing business is a six figure net take home royalties ie SGD 100,000 per year, or SGD 8,334 per month (this will be my publishing target), of course, it has to be achieved step by step, so my milestones will be:
Conservatively, I hope to achieve goal #10 by end of 2020, which gives me 2 years to build up the knowledge, streams and experience for my Amazon Kindle Passive Income Machines.
When I can achieve five figure per month...I don't know what will happen after that. Maybe I'll just keep publishing books ie business as usual? I don't know.
I'll just take things one step a time.
I've been on sabbatical since 20th Dec 2017, and today as I write this article, today's the 3rd of December 2018. I cannot imagine how time has flown - it's close to a year already since my sabbatical started! Gosh.
Time really flies.
The sabbatical is truly very helpful, and I praise the good Lord that I am able to take a sabbatical time out, just to think, purge and rest my heart and brain, which had been so busy since 2008. It's only when my sabbatical started, and even then, I was keeping myself busy with Nalcohealth, HeatPackPro, other online projects, children (so nice), but it's the quiet times that I appreciate.
I get to slow down, to think, reflect of what I had learnt the last 10 or so years, including 2018. Much has happened, and sometimes we (or at least me), don't slow down enough to think.
But as 2018 draws to an end, I'm increasingly reflective and a little more thoughtful. Maybe the purging of my heart and mind has begun? Nonetheless I truly enjoy publishing, and I want to grow this new skill, in my experience and outcomes, as mentioned above.
I'd love to live off my publications =)
...and consists of thousands (or more) steps.
And the same can be said for YOUR Passive Income Lifestyle.
This is my journey to build more upon my Passive Income Lifestyle and journey. After I can achieve this, I think I will scale up more, and invest more into dividend stocks but keep building on my High Income skill and streams of income from my Amazon Kindle Publishing business. Maybe I'll achieve my SGD 10,000/month royalties income by end 2020, maybe earlier, maybe later.
Who knows? I'll just keep progressing and not stopping.
How bout you? What do you think?
