Passive Income Businesses and the Art of Not Being Leveraged

In the most basic sense, we all know what a lever does—it reduces the amount of work or force that you need to use in order to get the job done.  In physics, this is easy—we see it at work on the playground with a see saw every time we take our kids to the park.  But with business, using leverage often eludes us, mainly because we are the levers ourselves!

The Goal of Passive Income Businesses—Don’t Get Leveraged

As the old adage goes, if you don’t see the idiot in the room, it’s probably you.  The same goes for levers—if you don’t see the lever in the room, that is to say the person making the job easier for someone else, it’s probably you.  When you put in your time for a salary, you are essentially being leveraged.  When you start up your own passive income businesses, you are leveraging the work of others.  Let’s take a closer look how.

When you are working for somebody, be it a company or a person, you are doing a job that they are paying you to do.  They need that job to get done and instead of doing it themselves, they can afford to pay someone to do it for them.  They can afford to leverage someone: you.  How is this possible?  Because in the end, the job is worth a lot more than they are paying you which is why the business is viable.

You see, active income jobs rely on people not realizing they are being leveraged for less than they are worth or if they do realize, then they are okay with it.  Whether you realize it or not, the point is you are still being used to make someone else rich while you toil away making just enough to keep you working at that job.  How can you tell if this is happening to you?  Simple: is your boss making more money than you?  Is he doing less work?  Exactly.

Passive Income Businesses Allow You to Leverage the Work of Others

When it’s all said and done, the only thing that your current job promises you is a steady paycheck until you retire, and that’s if your lucky!  Some jobs can’t even promise you a retirement—they’ll just leverage you until you can’t work anymore and then toss you to the side when you’re old and useless.

If this sounds harsh, that’s because it is.  But it’s also the reality with almost the entire workforce in the world.  People think they are getting a good job when in reality, they are getting paid just enough to continue to make someone else’s life easy—to make someone else rich.  If you’re okay with that, then so be it.  There’s nothing preventing you from slaving away every day at your 9 to 5, coming home at night tired, stretching the budget from paycheck to paycheck just to make ends meet.

There’s nothing wrong with not being able to spend time with your family because you’re too tired from work and there’s certainly nothing wrong with not being able to provide the life for them that they deserve.  You can go on like this until the day you die and nobody will say a thing—you’ll be just another cog in the wheel.


Passive Income Businesses Put the Earning Power in Your Hands

Or, you can say no to being used as a lever and take the power into your own hands.  You can start up your own passive income businesses and give your family the lives they deserve.  You can take them on those dream vacations and actually enjoy yourself with them because you’re still making money even when you’re away from the computer.  You can send your kids to the best schools and not have to worry about them growing up to fast while you are shackled to your desk.

You don’t have to worry about the rising costs of college tuition because you’ll be making enough now to earn passive income on top of the savings you put away.  In short, you can take control of your own life, your own finances and stop being a lever today.  How?  By starting your own passive income businesses.

What are Passive Income Businesses?

If you’ve never heard of passive income businesses, they are simply what all the rich people are doing.  Now, this isn’t to say starting up passive income businesses will make you rich over night, but it is one of the surest ways to earn money while still keeping your free time to yourself.  That’s because earning a passive income is all based around leveraging the work—or system—of others.  Here’s how.

A typical online passive income business that makes money in today’s market is selling information.  Whatever it is that you’re an expert on—be it socks, stocks or clocks—there are people out there who want that information.  In order to get them that information with the least work possible, you simply leverage the power of the Internet and create landing pages that offer up the info for a price.  Then, when the visitor finds your landing page through Google, they buy your eBooks, download your reports, sign up for your newsletters and do just about anything else you want them to—the money all goes straight to you.

You can take this passive income business model one step further on the leverage chain and outsource all of the content creation, SEO work, eBook writing, research, etc.  Now you are leveraging the work of others and the power of the Internet, creating truly smart passive income streams where you sit back and collect the cash.

Of course, if passive income businesses were overly simplified, everyone would be doing it.  Instead, there are a few formulas that all successful passive income businesses follow.

 The 1-Hour Workweek

  (60 articles)

I’m Tarence Wade, M.D., the creator of The 1-Hour Workweek. For 24 years, I worked as an ER physician, experiencing the financial pains & frustrations as well as the disparity in access to adequate healthcare for many of the people I served. Many were faced with long-term unemployment and couldn’t afford a primary physician. Some became disabled from injuries where they could no longer work. Others had chronic and debilitating health conditions and couldn’t afford even a $5 prescription to treat their conditions. I saw 3 major social crisis that existed in the people I vowed to serve. 1) They were unhappy, depressed and filled with anxiety from dealing with long-term unemployment and the lack of opportunity. 2) They had poor and declining health issues from the lack of access to affordable healthcare and proper health education. 3) They didn’t have the financial infrastructure to take care of the basic needs (e.g. adequate nutrition, clothing, shelter, healthy living conditions, etc.) for themselves and their families. Out of sheer frustration and concern, I made a commitment I would spend the rest of my life helping as many people possible to achieve the 4 Pillars of Success.
