HOW CREATE PASSIVE INCOME?

Passive income is not always easy to develop ínfima to you might lose money trying to create it. So in this post I want to show you how I currently make passive income and how you can start creating passive income for yourself.

Keep in mind it is not easy to create passive income with that in mind, what ever trade you want to go into, study first by reading books. This will reduce the risk in creating passive income.

STOCKS

Stocks can be one of the most passive investments, depending on how you invest. I prefer investing for the long run because slow and steady wins the race. So one of the main factors I like to see when I invest in stocks is dividends.

Dividends are company earnings that are annually distributed amongst shareholders.

Also in some cases dividends is handed out monthly, so make sure to really study your stocks by using www.sec.gov. From the SEC website you can search up company records, all you need to do is go to the search tab and type in “EDGAR SEARCH,” once land on that page type in the company’s name or ticker symbol.

HIGH YIELD SAVINGS ACCOUNT

High Yield accounts are easier to find but to make a significant amount from interest, you have to have over $10,000 in the account in my opinion. These account are made to give you higher returns compared to a regular savings account or bank account.

Remember this is less risky, when it comes to making passive income, so the returns are not really as big as stocks. What I suggest is to create an account just so you can have money ready to use for convenience but still have money working for you by paying you interest.

ROYALTY FEES

There are plenty of places to collect royalty fees, just to give you an example for “The Way I Save” one of the sites that the blog collects a royalty fee from is merchandise. Teespring is a good site to create graphics that can go on any product and if someone purchases your product you collect a royalty fee.

Now each product can give you more or less money the profit margin varies, but it’s fun and simple to set up. If you want to see an example on how it looks click over to the products page of “The Way I Save” located on the menu tab.

The Importance of EPS

When it comes to choosing a stock EPS is the most important thing to look at before investing and in this post I’ll give you reasons why its important and I’m going to explain what EPS is.

Well for starters EPS stands for earnings per share.

WORTH

One of the main reasons why EPS is so important, is because EPS will let you know whether or not a stock is worth investing in.

A higher EPS shows investors that a company is profitable. When a company is profitable it’s more likely that the investor will receive dividend payments from the company.

DEMAND

When the “earnings per share” increases 25 percent, it also reflects a higher demand from the company. This can be because of the rising popularity of the company or an increasing need for the companies products.

For example, have you ever heard of “Zoom” before the pandemic. In 2020 the eps for Zoom was calculated at 0.27, in 2021 it went all the way up to 2.91, that’s over 25 percent.

CONSISTENT GROWTH

When the earnings per share for the company increases each quarter it represents future profitability for the company or consistent growth.

Before I purchase a stock I look at the estimated earnings per share and the actual earnings per share for each quarter. If a company passes its estimate earnings each quarter it shows The consistency of it’s performance.

Their are plenty of other reasons why EPS is important but these are the main reasons why you should pay attention to a company’s Earnings per share.

Goals For your Money

Many people create goals they want to accomplish at the beginning of each year. Some people accomplish these goals, others forget about the goals that they have set for themselves. The most successful people break down their goals into realistic task and give a time frame for the goal to be completed. If your new year resolution was to make more money this year, then you clicked on the best post for you.

In this post we’re going to break down your goal into making more money into realistic task but first lets be clear about the time frame. We want to complete this goal before the next year, so lets make this a 10 month goal.

TASK NUMBER 1

What are you passionate about and why? When you figure out what you are passionate about you will be willing to work more hours during the day. When you figure out why you are passionate about something it prevents you from getting burnt out or tired, and if you do get tired then its not a big enough “why.”

You don’t have to think too hard to realize what your passionate about because chances are you want to change peoples lives. So all you have to do is figure out what part of peoples lives you want to change. For example, I want to change the way people operate their personal finances so they can have financial freedom. The reason why I want to do this is because 80% of America is in debt and 55% of that debt is in credit cards.

So now that you know you want to impact peoples lives, and what part of their lives you want to impact, figure out how your going to impact them. Is it going to be through books, seminars, music, or a podcast.

TASK NUMBER 2

Supercharge your learning, when you find out what service your going to do, you need to learn more about the service (do not sell yourself short when it comes to the price of your service and do not overprice it.) You need to have a strategic method of learning too, so when you find the service you want to provide ask questions like how? Where? Why? and Who? Then learn the answers to each question. Start with the basics learn how to find the right people to partner with to eventually form a business, you need marketing, accounting, and specialist in the field.

TASK NUMBER 3

What ever money you have now, chances are your going to need more. So find things to flip, sell, or invest in that will give you enough cushion to start your business. I didn’t say it will be easy, but it is doable. Simple ideas to flip would be cars, shoes, or furniture.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I also hope it inspired you.

Why Diversify

There are plenty of reasons why you should diversify your investments, but in this post your going to be reading about the advantages of diversification.

Diversification is the practice of spreading your investments around.

ONE ADVANTAGE

The first advantage of diversification is when you diversify your stocks or money you are able to take advantage of growth opportunities in different sectors of the market.

You don’t have to know which stock to pick you just have to know which industry is going where. Once you figure that out, you can simply purchase a Mutual Fund, ETF, or Index Fund that is already diverse in that particular industry.

SECOND ADVANTAGE

The second advantage of diversification is that when you diversify your stocks or money it keeps you stable during tough times. With this pandemic, businesses are going under and investors that aren’t diversified are losing money.

Since I knew businesses are being affected during this pandemic, I invested in gold when the shutdown occurred which saved my investments.

When one sector goes down there is always another sector that is going to be prospering, you just have to diversify.

THIRD ADVANTAGE

The third advantage of diversification is knowledge. When one sector or industry is going down that’s your trigger into buying either one good business or one outstanding ETF in that struggling sector.

Now each time you log on your brokerage account, if your diversified enough, you should see where the market is headed. You can see which sector has gain momentum and where to put more money.

What is an ETF?

If you are a rather new to investing chances are you probably don’t know what an ETF is and what it can do for you. Well in this post I’m going to breakdown this acronym for you so that you will be able to see if investing in an ETF is right for you.

E – Exchange

ETF’s are a type of security that deals with a number of stocks in a specific index. Investing in an ETF helps diversify your portfolio just like a mutual Fund would. I currently hold an ETF called “JETS” in my portfolio to take advantage of the airlines that dropped during the pandemic. Since I don’t know which airline to purchase specifically, I choose to diversified through this ETF. Its always good to hedge or own each competitor in a struggling sector that has been through difficult times such as the airlines.

T – Traded

If you hold a mutual fund in your 401k you don’t have to pay taxes on it but if you own one outside your 401k or pension plan, you can be paying 15 percent in taxes. A good thing to know about ETF’s, is the fact that ETF’s cost less than Mutual funds because an ETF charges less in brokerage commission than buying individual stocks. Plus as long as you hold on to an ETF, you don’t have to pay a ton of taxes.

F – Fund

the reason an ETF is called an “Exchange Traded Fund” is because ETF’s are traded or exchanged on the stock market, just like any other stock or company.

Some of the biggest ETF’s are known as the NASDAQ, S&P 500, and Dow Jones.

Which are also referred to as index funds. Also, when an news anchor talks about the market he or she is referring to these three index funds or Exchange Traded Funds.

What’s an IPO?

IPOs are always being listed on the exchange and you can make a considerable amount of money from buying and selling IPOs at the right time, but what are they specifically. Well in this post I am going to break down this acronym, and tell you whether or not you should invest in an IPO.

I – INITIAL

Well let’s begin with the first letter of IPO, which stands for initial. When a private company is planning to grow rather quickly, they look for funding in various places. Take “Publix” for an example, they offer their own employees an opportunity to buy a share of a company. With that money reinvested in Publix the company is able to acquire more assets to grow in profitability.

P – PUBLIC

The “P” in IPO stands for public. After massive expansion, a company like Publix is able to go public with their stock. This means a non-employee of Publix can become a shareholder in the company now.

O – OFFERING

I stands for Initial, P was for Public, and O is for Offering. As an Initial Public Offering, a private company is able to become a public company. The benefits of this transitions helps the company go from a couple hundred thousand in funding, to millions or even billions in funding.

BUT…

When a company is newly listed the information of its business dealings are very slim to none. Which means many investors do not know much about the company’s Assets, Liability, and the companies performance record (profits).

Even with knowing very little about a newly listed company, investors still gamble and invest in IPO’s. Which result in these investors loosing everything.

So taken it from Benjamin Graham when he states that the more you know the better with stocks; this is my translation of what Ben teaches in his book “The Intelligent Investor.”

HOW TO PICK A STOCK

If your like me a few years ago, you probably want to invest into the stock market but you don’t even know what to buy. Well, you clicked on the right post, in this post your going to learn how to pick the best stocks and be able to determine what a good stock looks like.

Okay for starters, there are plenty of ways to make money in the stock market, But the best way is by holding on to a stock for five or fifteen years. There are two reasons why this is the best method.

  1. You can build capital
  2. You can receive dividends

CAPITAL

Now to build capital you have to do some research before you pick a stock. You cant just pick a stock based on what you think, or what some else thinks (that is a good way to lose your shirt.)

There is a cool site that helps you gather information about a stock and its called “SEC.GOV.” This website was created by the “U.S Securities and Exchange Commission” to help the individual investor make informed decisions on a stock before investing. Every stock that is listed on the market has to give updated information on the companies balance sheet, income statement, and cashflow statement, plus any executive decision.

I personally use sec.gov every quarter, to get updated information on how my stocks are doing. I suggest you to do the same, because this is a good way to learn more about the company and where its headed financially. You deserve to know if the company is making money or losing money.

DIVIDENDS

Part of deciding whether a stock is good, is by seeing if the stock gives quarterly dividends and has been doing so for more than fives years. This is another piece of information that is provided at sec.gov.

At the bottom of the picture above it shows the dividends per share for this particular stock. It also shows you how much dividends was handed out by the company in 2019 after three months and 2018 after three months.

Dividends gets passed out each fiscal quarter, which is every three months. At the bottom left you can see the dividends given after nine months for 2019 and 2018. I showed you this picture just to give you an idea of what your looking for in a stock, when it comes to dividends.

Just to give you a heads up, the reason why you want to pick a stock that shows more than 5 years of dividend payments, is because the company decides whether or not to give its shareholders dividends.

Thank You for reading

More Money, More Ways?

WOW! This is a problem, why don’t people know how to make money without breaking their backs for it. Wouldn’t you like to learn how to make your money work harder than you?

Of course you would, who wouldn’t? I guess the only people who don’t want to learn more ways in making money, are those who overthink it.

OKAY! “News Flash” It doesn’t take a degree to learn this.

News Flash

You don’t have to be this guy with his arms crossed, who is probably going to be working for someone his whole life. Forget this guy. Let’s learn a new way.

LET’S LEARN FOREX!

Forex aka the “Foreign Exchange Market” is like the stock market, but (some might say) better. We can learn how to make “MORE MONEY” in Forex by answering these questions:

WHERE DID THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE COME FROM?

HOW DO I MAKE MONEY IN THIS?

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO GET STARTED?

Foreign Exchange is based on switching (exchanging) different types of foreign money, such as euros or pounds.

WHERE ?

The Foreign Exchange began during the biblical times, in this period of time the people exchanging currencies were called “Money-Changers.” The Money-Changers simply charged a fee or commission on each trade.

Holy Land

    The first recorded site for Exchanging was in the “Holy Land” but now since technology came out its on your phone or online through Forex.com.

HOW ?

The way you can make money in the foreign exchange is not just through commission anymore. You can make money in several ways:

  1.  Holding – Waiting for the value of a promising countries’ currency to go up.
  2. Trading in Bulk – Purchasing in quantity, waiting for a slight increase to sell.
  3. Options – You can make money through betting, if a currency is going to go up or down.

how

    With options, you’re going to be trading the right to the currency and you can choose whether its going to go up or down. If your predictions are right, you can make a lot of money, but it is very risky.

WHAT ?

There are several places to start, but the best news is that you can start with as little as $50 at Forex.com. When I started using Forex, I only used $50 to get started and to make sure I was doing everything correctly I downloaded a demo app to learn how to use market information.

Forex

In summary, we talked about where the Foreign Exchange came from (The Holy Land) and how we can make money in the Foreign Exchange, by holding, trading in bulk, and selling options. Lastly, what we need to do to get started in the foreign exchange market is to invest a minimum of $50 on an app called Forex.com, and don’t forget to study with the demo apps for Forex.

Passive Income

Passive income is earnings derived from a rental property, limited partnership or other enterprise in which a person is not actively involved. As with active income, passive income is usually taxable. However, it is often treated differently by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Portfolio income is considered passive income by some analysts, so dividends and Interest would therefore be considered passive.

quoted by: http://www.investopedia.com

I have read, listened, and saw plenty of CPA’s, Real Estate agents, and Financial Advisors talk about passive income; but their are only a few to do while in college with limited funds (money).

The first one is my favorite which is a High Yield Savings account. So instead of getting a penny $0.01 a month for every $1000 dollars, you have your getting $2 a month that’s a huge difference. The reason why this is my favorite type of passive income is because I am able to invest at a very low risk which means I am less likely to loose my investment.

The Secondary way to create passive income is through Real Estate Pool Investing which gives you over 5% back in interest. Which is pretty cool considering that your only getting 0.09% from your current savings account with your ordinary bank. I currently made $22 from letting my money sit. I’ve been using a popular and reliable platform called, Fundrise. What Fundrise does is raise money for a specific Real Estate Property that gives you back and average of %5 back on what ever you decide to put in. The minimum amount to get started is only $500 and it’s pretty easy to setup.

The last passive income is the stocks market. The reason why I put the stock market as a passive income is because there is a slight trick to making the stock market passive now of course your not going to make as much as active people in the stock market you can still make a significant amount from dividends. Dividends is “money” the company gives the stock holder for per share. Sometimes they give it quarterly or monthly, the best dividend stock out there right now from the time writing this post is “PSEC.”

There many other ways to create passive income. Even some businesses can even be passive. Writing is one of the most passive incomes created, think about the only work you do is to write the book, publish, and promote. This is why many pastors and entrepreneurs write books, it’s an investment that accrues interest over time by promoting yourself.
