Passive Income Ideas 2020 by
Call Number: (New) VOC 658.041 L
Publication Date: 2020-04-20
97% of people in the world really believe that the more you work, the more you earn. Nothing could be more false! I thought so, too, three years ago. The company I worked for was going through a bad time, so I stayed home for a while and while looking for a new opportunity for my life, I happened to read an ad about online earning systems. I had NEVER been interested in this kind of thing, I found it false, out of my reach and I thought it was an ordinary way to attract customers. That statement, however, continued to flash in my mind, so that I began to inform myself. I had nothing to lose, I didn't have any money! Well, two months later, I generated my first 1,300 dollars through self-publishing. I couldn't believe it. I stayed home and made money. But what was even more absurd was that those earnings were passive: every month, the books I had published continued to generate passive income. So I decided to invest 80% of my earnings in training and investment: within two years I managed to climb many other online businesses (Dropshipping, Amazon FBA...), comfortably from home. Now I'm a digital entrepreneur, I work literally from all over the world with my MAC. Two to three hours a day is enough to guarantee me an income of 30,000 dollars a month, absolutely automatic on my checking accounts. That's all I need. So I wrote this step-by-step guide to get you into this wonderful world. In this book you will: find out that there are 22 ABSOLUTELY LEGAL profit systems for which you do not need to invest NO MONEY (page 14); find out why the businesses that I show you are so EASY to set up that even a 12-year-old would make it; find out why you don't need ANY EXPERIENCE on the world of online - In fact, if you don't have any it is even better; discover step-by-step EXACTLY what Self-publishing, Dropshipping, Social Media Marketing, Amazon FBA, Influencer Marketing, E-commerce, Blogging are and what is the best system for you depending on your budget; learn how to set your DIY Business FROM SCRATCH, even if you have very little time available; understand why 97% of people believe that, if you want to live comfortably, you have to work 10 hours a day and more; understand why 97% of people are unsuccessful in life; understand that you can ABSOLUTELY be in the 3%. Wait! This book is NOT for you if want to: make easy money, without much effort; make money illegally. What I explain to you in this book is the result of all that I have learned in these years, of all my investments, my victories and also my defeats. Don't think you don't need commitment. If you're lazy, I'll tell you right away: forget it! If you are going to engage intensely, at least in the early days, then click the "buy now" button NOW!
