100 passive income ideas

What’s up Hustlers! Hope you’re having a lovely day. I took the time to brainstorm 100 ways to make passive income this afternoon because a lot of people seem to think there’s only a handful of methods. That’s so far from the truth and anyone who can’t list at least 20 on the top of their head shouldn’t be someone you take passive income advice from.

Sounds mean, but I’m serious.

If they can’t list at least 20 ways immediately, then they obviously aren’t obsessed enough to be knowledgable advice givers. (This goes for everything. You want the person to know more than you if you’re going to take their advice.)

I’m kinda writing this post out of annoyance, because I’m just tired of people saying the same things that only ever brush the surface of passive income. No one needs another video or articles about, kindle publishing, a shopify dropshipping store or blogging. You’re obviously looking for something more than these 3 methods. (though, these 3 methods have the lowest barriers to entry and have a fast ROi…but I’ll talk about that some other day)

So here’s my list of 100 ways to make passive income. There are both online and offline based methods, as well as upfront capital and sweat capital methods. All these methods work in theory and in practice. From what I understand, this IS the longest list of passive income ideas available online. No one has made a longer list than 40.

I stand corrected. It’s 43.

      Happy you enjoyed it. The crazy part is this isn’t all of it. The possibilities are endless as long as you understand what passive income is and how it works.
