Passive Earnings Industry Model

hey everybody what’s up this is pat flynn from the smart passive income blog and in three to four minutes i’m going to show you exactly what a passive income business model looks like i’m actually going to draw it out for you on the screen because i want to illustrate for you exactly how a person you can generate an income without having to be totally involved in your business your business can run on autopilot and all you’re doing is you know sitting back and watching the money come in and it might sound kind of crazy but let me draw it out for you so you can show you exactly how it works this is how i run my businesses and if you’ve read the 4-hour workweek by Tim Ferriss you know that you’ll you’ll see this is sort of familiar so let’s say for example you have a website out there about something whatever it is that you’re interested in or something that you’re passionate about or something that you are an expert in you have a website out there and on that website you also sell an e-book a digital book or some type of digital product like a course or maybe some audio product or something but for this example let’s say you have an e-book so what happens is people will visit your website maybe through Google or Yahoo or Bing or maybe from a friend or a link on another site people will go to your website and maybe they’re interested in your ebook maybe they you have something great to offer which I’m sure you will so you have an e-book and they’re interested in buying it so what happens is when they want to make that purchase they enter their billing information you know you’ve gone through this process before into a payment processor and after they click Submit what happens in this business model is that the payment processor will automatically send this person an email with a link to download that ebook or a link to download that digital product now happens immediately after the payment and what happens at the same time is the money from that payment goes directly to you so let me ask you a question looking at this business model and this is this is the entire business model here just kind of bare bones structure of it where are you in this equation how are you involved in order for a transaction to process and be fulfilled right here the the only part that you’re involved in is money coming over to you and this is a this is exactly the Stinkum business model that I use and it totally totally works let me give you an example one of my sites at green exam Academy comm you can go there right now and see my picture just too so you know it’s it’s me greens iam academy.com this is a site that I have to help people pass the LEED exam which is an exam that people in the architecture and design and building industry take so they go to this site and you know I sell a number of ebooks and study guides and practice exams on this site so they go to my site they want to buy those things they go through the payment processor and immediately what happens after that payment is they go and get that email again with that information to download that ebook or study guide and I get the money you know I get an email that says you’ve just made $44.95 and you know I’ll wake up in the morning and I will see a number of those in my inbox and it’s amazing it’s just it’s just crazy because you don’t have to be there in order for transaction to happen I can’t stress that enough and that’s the beauty behind it now the thing is it’s not a hundred percent hands-off because first of all you want to increase the number of people that come to your site and that that’s not just going to happen automatically so you’re going to work on marketing and stuff like that to get more people into your website also conversions the getting the people who do come to your website to actually buy your ebook so that’s going to take a little bit of work but again it’s not you’re not trading time for dollars you’re actually investing your time you’re investing your time in the marketing side of things just setting this whole thing up in the first place you’re investing your time to earn money more money later down the road so you know it’s not a hundred percent hands-off and you may have to deal with customer service sometimes especially with these ebooks you know there’s people out there that don’t know how to open the zip file for example and hopefully you’ll have something like a FAQ on your site that will help them with that and you’ll you’ll be able to build an FAQ for whatever products you’re selling over time you know just little tip make sure to keep all those questions that people have in some type of database so you can refer back to those in the future but this is it this is exactly what the passive income business model looks like so I hope that excites you now the thing is this is just one business you know I have several these setup so I have you know a whole bunch of them working for me all driving money into my bank account all different kinds of things like iphone applications now for iPhone applications for example it’s not a website that is you know holding all the product the product being a you know an iPhone application it’s the iTunes App Store and you know they are also the payment processor so someone with an iPhone finds an app that they like that I built and they purchase it it automatically gets downloaded onto their iPhone at the same time when it gets into my account there’s just a lot of you know different examples of passive income that can happen and down below you know if you’re watching this video on the website down below you’ll see links to three podcast episodes that the podcast 15 16 and 17 that’ll share all the different types of passive income that you know can go through this model so you can figure out kind of what excites you the most because some of you might like iPhone apps more than writing ebooks or you know whatever so really you know you can go through and scroll through everything go to the bottom where all the different articles are and such but I would recommend if you have the time you know listen to podcast episodes number 15 16 17 it’s a three part series you know and listen to it in your car or at the gym or even at work on a break of course and and you know figure out what you want to do because that this is this is a great place to start this is why I built this page this is why I reshot this video for you I actually shot this in the past but I want to redo it for you specifically because you landed here on this kind of welcome or start here page so thank you for viewing this I hope this all makes sense if you have any questions please feel free to contact me Pat at smartpassiveincome.com let me know what you think yeah love to hear from you and again episode 15 the smart passive income podcast go there now if you have the chance thanks take care bye

Simplest Financial Advice You’ve Ever Received

I was asked a question the other day that
really got me thinking, really got my wheels
spinning up here. A client asked me, “Jeff,
what is the best financial advice that you
have ever received in your lifetime?” I really
had to take a moment and really think about,
of all the information I have got, of all
the tips, of all the advice I have gotten
over the years, what is the best advice? I
honestly couldn’t answer that question immediately.
I thought I had a few ideas, but I really
wanted to take a breath and just really see
what is some of the best advice I ever got.
The one thing, if this is your first time
ever hearing me talk or if you haven’t been
to the blog yet to know a little bit about
my back story, my family, my father, my mother,
they didn’t really give me a lot of good financial
advice. They always said maybe you should
save, but they never really showed me how
or never really introduced me to a lot of
cool tools like the Roth IRA that I could
save into. The best financial advice I have
received has been through my clients, through
the experiences that they have gone through,
the trials and tribulations of their financial
rights and wrongs. What they passed down to
me is where that advice has come from. I can
think of a few different things as some of
the best financial advice I ever got or ever
received.
The first thing is you should start saving
earlier. Duh, right! I know that’s not rocket
science. It’s not some great revelation. I
have met with so many different folks that
were in their late 50s maybe early 60s that
were approaching retirement and weren’t as
comfortable or confident as they would like
to have been. Had they started saving earlier
they felt that they would be much more comfortable
going into retirement with a really good strong
feeling about it, and they didn’t have it.
They wished they would have started earlier.
What such tremendous advice for, at the time
in my mid-to-younger 20s to get that, because
if my parents were telling me you need to
save early, you need to start, you need to
start, which they didn’t but even if they
had I don’t know if I really would’ve listened.
Now being in my 20s and starting my career
and sitting across the table from folks that
didn’t listen to the advice maybe that their
parents had passed down to them and now they
are paying the consequences. That was very
helpful.
To go along with that as far as starting earlier,
the other thing that they taught me or some
of the other advice that I got was you need
to save more. Once again, this isn’t some
epiphany like, “Oh wow! Thanks Jeff. That
really helped out a lot.” It helped a lot
hearing it coming out of their mouth saying,
“Jeff, trust me. Here we are. You see our
situation. You see where we are at. You see
where we are lacking and the money that we
wish would have. The reason that we are lacking
is because we didn’t start early, and we didn’t
save enough.” I will take another step to
that as far a saving enough. I think the other
aspect is trying to earn more. It’s always
about saving, but it’s also trying to earn
more. That’s you getting raises at your job.
That’s maybe doing freelance work. That’s
working a part-time job maybe from home. Maybe
it’s a side passion of yours to basically
try to earn more income. That’s something
that I have kind of adopted. I do save. I
did start early. I do save often, but I have
also tried to find other ways to increase
my income. I think there is a delicate balance.
Saving is a good thing, but if you can make
more it makes it that much easier to save.
Correct? That could be choosing a different
career path. If that’s not in your blood then
maybe it’s doing a side job. I have a lot
of clients that will do maybe freelance writing
or photography or anything for that matter
just to basically have some extra income as
well. Those are two of the things that I have
gotten and I would consider some of the best
financial advice I have ever got.
The third and final thing, which actually
if you go to my other blog, soldieroffinance.com
I actually wrote an article about it. I talk
about the “Lu”, which is the 1998 Chevy Lumina
that I drove whenever I was in college then
also drove for my first several years of working.
This was a car that was passed down from my
now-deceased grandmother. It was champagne
colored, had the alloy wheels, four door,
no spoiler, and had the cassette player. This
thing was sharp right? You can imagine driving
around town in a four-door Lumina. A few things
about it though: It had about 12,000 miles
on it and I think I got it from her back in
2002, maybe earlier, I believe. It was a car
that was four years old, maybe a little bit
older than that actually, and it only had
12,000 miles on it. So that was one aspect
of it. The other aspect of it: It was paid
off so I had no car payment. Whenever I was
in college, I talk about in this blog post
how my Chevy Lumina has…
The final piece of information that I got
that I would consider some of the best financial
advice I ever got was from my finance professor
back whenever I was a junior in college. The
professor on the first day of class asked
us, “How many of you plan on trading in your
car every 3-5 years?” I want to say all of
us, maybe with the exception of two and you
have a class of 30 folks or so, all of us
raised our hand. I remember at the time I
had this big vision of driving a BMW. I am
not sure why that was, but I just envisioned
myself driving a BMW. Once I graduated that
was my car, four-door sports sedan; that’s
what I wanted. I knew once I graduated, I
didn’t care how much I was going to make,
I was going to find a way to get that BMW.
When he asked us that question, we all raised
our hand and he responded by, “While all of
you are trading in your car every 3-5 years,
I’ll be taking my family overseas to European
vacations.” When he said that I thought, “What
does that mean? What are you talking about?”
So that was our introduction to the power
of compounding interest and how saving an
amount of money today and what it can grow
to be. It showed by putting in a car payment
per month, whether it be $300, $400, $500,
$600 a month, what that can grow to be. For
me as a young male who had these big aspirations
of driving this sport luxury foreign car I
was like, “Wow! What am I doing? What am I
thinking? I’m going to be wasting money when
I could actually be saving?” That was extremely
helpful to me and some of the best I ever
got because whenever I inherited that Lumina,
I had the option of trading it in or selling
it, getting the cash and applying it towards
the BMW. I still would have had a car payment,
but I would have been driving my dream car.
Instead I drove the Lumina for almost three
or four years up until I returned back from
Iraq, and I didn’t have a car payment that
whole time. Not having that car payment gave
me the ability to be able to save into my
401K, into my Roth IRA. It made me appreciate
the fact of how to spread a dollar, not go
out and waste money on just useless things.
That was a huge pivotal point in my life because
now I reflect back. Because I didn’t have
that car payment for those years I’ve got
a decent amount socked away in my retirement
accounts that has been able to grow over the
last few years. That has been, like I said,
just great financial advice. I am glad that
I received it. I’m glad that I applied it,
and any chance I get to share that story with
others as I’m doing now I look forward to
it and hope that you get something out of
it as well.
Those are three of some of the best financial
advices I have got over the years. I hope
that was helpful. If you want more information,
Good Financial Cents is where you’ll find
me. I have, as you know tons of information
there. If you have any more questions please
feel free to drop me a line. I look forward
to hearing from you. We’ll talk to you all
soon.
