Starting your business and passive income journey can be scary, but we've got to start somewhere, and instead of overthinking and over-worrying, here's what I think:
If at this moment you don't have a job,
And I've nothing wrong with brainstorming for big ideas, or quitting jobs or if you got retrenched (sorry and I hope you got a good/fair severance), but I recommend getting a job first.
The reason why I highly recommend getting a job first because most human beings, be it single, dating and especially if one is married with kids, we all need stable income.
(Unless of course, you have a fully paid home that runs on self-generated electricity, with a water source that's safe and a garden/farm that produces all the food you need, then fine lol).
But if you can't eat, if you can't pay the bills, if you are struggling to pay rent and struggling to travel, and especially with kids - this is what we call
Any job will do.
Ignore your inner rebellion of "low class jobs" or whatever - when you and your loved ones can eat, can sleep safely, can go to work, THEN only you consider working on any business idea or side hustles OUTSIDE of your 9-5.
It's a functional way of resolving a problem, ie, you focus on surviving first, build the stability, and when you have a stable life and schedule,
And that is how you start.
If you have a job and are stable (maybe bored out of your mind, or just want some growth or hate your boss), then it's time to pick up at least two (2) Passive Income Machine-building projects:
Drop the stupid NetFlix/TV watching habit - none of TV or screen time will bring you closer to your business or passive income dream, even if you watch YouTube "trainings" by people who is there.
You want to do business? Go out there, explore, and do it.
You want passive income? Invest in dividend stocks/index funds, or learn how to build passive income businesses.
Let nothing get in your way.
Yes, you make make mistakes along the way as you learn and refine. But just don't keep reading and dreaming and watching - nothing changes until we take consistent massive action to get to where we want to be from where we are.
If not, one year from today, you may be exactly where you are still.
