Once you have your passive income business up and running, there are going to be a number of moments that will feel strange or awkward. For instance, when the cash starts flowing in and you didn't really work for a whole week or two, the feeling is certainly a good one, but one that you probably haven't experienced before if you've been actively working your whole life. While this might sound like a great problem to have, the point here is that any time you change your career or lifestyle, there are some things that you'll have to get used to—your passive income business included.
Making the Most of Your Passive Income Business
Here are five tips for keeping your life active and profitable after you start up your passive income business. These will help you optimize profits, stay focused, and keep that lean edge which is needed for success in any business:
- Create a schedule separating your work from your pleasure time. Once you start working from home on your passive income business, it can be easy to let the edges of work and downtime blur themselves. You won't have an “office” to go to in most cases. Offices act as conditioning triggers for our minds and bodies, telling us it's time for work. When we remove those triggers, it can be easy to do one of two things: never be in work mode or always be in work mode. This is why it's vital that you set out a schedule for your work and downtime so that they are separated in your mind and in reality. We understand that many people started their passive income business to get away from the monotony and routine, but if telling yourself that every Tuesday from 1pm to 3pm you will be in front of the computer checking in on your passive income business and the rest of the time you are not allowed to work is too much for you, you can always keep your 9 to 5 job.
- Share and share alike. Whether you want to share in your success by name only or actually get other people involved in your passive income business, it can be helpful not to go it alone. Speak with your friends, family and co-workers to see how they feel about possibly joining you in your ventures. A passive income business benefits not just you, but everyone around you—invite them to take part in that, whether it's simply celebrating your successes with you or creating their own success stories through passive income streams.
- Count your blessings and be grateful for the little things. A passive income business is still a business like any other. There will be frustrating times of stress and periods of pure elation. No one is promising you an easy ride here—it will take some work on your part before your passive income business becomes self-actualizing. But in the meantime, it's helpful to remember what you've left behind—the monotony of going to an office every day and working for a boss. Your worst day in passive income is still better than your best day actively working! Remember to celebrate the little things and be grateful for your passive income business—it can always be worse.
- Relax your expectations and take things as they come. One of the most difficult parts of transitioning between non-passive income jobs and passive income streams is that active income brings some guarantees with them. For example, you know that if you put in a certain amount of time at the office, you are going to be compensated with an exact amount of money. This is an expectation that is reasonable and a big reason why active income jobs breed complacency (change is hard). But with your passive income business, there might be a week where you put in 20 hours without earning a dime and then three weeks where you rake in thousands without putting in an hour of work. This is just a small example of how different passive income businesses are from working for a living, but the sooner you drop your expectations and learn to roll with the punches, the happier you'll be with your passive income business.
- Stay learning. Any passive income business that is self-serving and operates on an island independent of the world around it will not be viable for very long. That is to say, if you aren't constantly aware of your surroundings and learning about the changing landscape of passive income, you run the risk of becoming obsolete and thus, not profitable. Further, you miss out on some great new opportunities that arise. The bottom line here is that you should always keep an ear to the ground and be ready to cut ties with passive income streams that are not profitable and direct those resources towards profitable and/or new passive income streams.
- Reinvest some earnings. Finally, it's always a good idea to reinvest a portion of your profit into your passive income business. Whether this means you are opening up new streams, investing in new opportunities or taking on new associates, understand that your residual income does best when it's working for you, not just being spent as quickly as it comes in. If you aren't good with saving and reinvesting, set a strict percentage for each payout you receive and then add that onto your passive income generators.
