Freedom wins. No matter why you blog, freedom wins as your ultimate goal. Humans crave freedom. Even if you appear to be bound by fear, freedom still waits for you on the other side of fear. Wise bloggers make freedom their chief intent. Everybody else chases imaginary numbers, to their blogging peril.
Passive blogging income frees you from sitting behind a laptop for 15 hours daily just to make money. Imagine selling 100 plus eBooks like myself. I made increasing passive income my chief intent because passive income frees me to circle the globe. I make money while I sleep. I make money while I travel. I make money while I work. Anyone can buy any of my 100 plus eBooks anywhere on earth at any time. Do you see why driving passive blogging income frees you fabulously? No longer do you need to be sitting by a laptop to make money online.
I do respect how some bloggers love coaching. Follow your passion, always. But think through the binding, limiting the nature of being a coach. Clients need to speak to you at specific times. Instantly, your freedom factor drops, because you need to sit in front of a computer at a specific time to actually make money. Trading time for money seems a little similar to working a job because you need to sit down at a set time – even if you choose the time – to earn profits. Active income via coaching, consulting and freelancing have some serious drawbacks. But digging deeper, observe the downside of running a thriving consulting business. Sure, money is good. But NEEDING to sit in front of a laptop for 14 hours daily to earn that money – trading a lot of time for a decent chunk of money – is not good at all. I view active income as being a poor way to earn money online because you trade precious time for money. Plus, you NEED to sit by a laptop for a specific, set period of time to earn the money. Sounds a little too much like a job to me, thank you. I prefer freedom.
For example, while a coach needs to sit by a laptop to coach clients from 8 AM to 4 PM daily, bloggers building their business solely on passive income can earn – and do earn – around the clock, and no limit exists to their earnings. Sure you need to work your tail off to earn money passively around the clock but the freedom of making money while you sleep, while you work and while out to eat with your family, dwarves the binding nature of trading time for money as a coach, consultant or freelancer. If you need to be in a specific spot for a set period of time to make money, you have not unlimited freedom. But passive income focused bloggers possess unlimited freedom because money can flow to them around the clock, even if the blogger is sleeping or traveling or exercising. Doesn’t that sound freeing? Heck yeah, it does.
The cost involves working your tail off for hundreds to thousands of hours to establish steady passive income flow. Expect to create and connect for years to experience passive income around the clock. But always keep freedom in mind before building your income channels. Err toward a heavy passive income model. Free yourself.
