I Had Always Wanted To Live Off My Writings

I shared earlier that this coming weekend, 1st and 2nd December 2018, I'll be attending an Amazon Book Publishing program, and can I say it - I'm excited to learn and pick up some new skills.

All of a sudden, today, I was reminded:

I have always wanted to live off my writings.

In my previous business, I had written:

  • lots of emails
  • lots of articles
  • lots of write ups

Offline, I write a lot, draw ideas and think and read.

Funnily enough, this sentence came to my mind and heart again, and I hope that I can be a good writer/publisher. I'm not sure where I sit right now in my heart and mind, if I'd be a pure writer or be a publisher, or both.

Difference being,

  • Author/Writer writes based on passion, building a brand, a reputation, and authority
  • Publisher is in the business of publishing

I probably may start off being a publisher, because I'm still exploring and uncertain for now, and I want to explore a little more to find my footing first. Lots to learn, experiment and grow first anyway.

A little excited, and a little scared, but lots of hope that I learn a good life skills that will bring in streams of passive income, that is in line with my ongoing pursuit of:

  • multiple streams of recurring passive income
  • wanting to live off my writings/publications

What about you? What's your plans for your passive income lifestyle and multiple streams of passive income?
