Why You Should Create Things That Build Residual Income

More often than not, when people find out that you can make real money when it comes to making money online, they are often in search of some “miracle” or quick fix.  The truth is that it doesn’t work that way.  It’s gonna take some effort on your part, but it is so worth it.  I mean, how many other jobs do you know where you can do some work once time and continue to benefit from that work for months and years to come?

When I use the word years, it’s no exaggeration, either.  I am still making money off stuff that I did two years ago before this blog and before I really knew what I was doing and used nothing more than free sites like Squidoo and Hubpages to promote my stuff.  I don’t mess with it or maintain it in any fashion whatsoever.  The money I make from these  things truly is on autopilot, and I really do “make money while I sleep.”

Today is a good example.  Today, I had to get up bright and early to go to a doctor’s appointment.  I feel like crap, have a fever, and got no sleep last night  Yet, by the time I got back from my doctor’s appointment at 11:00 a.m., I had made $45.28.  I know it’s not the hundreds or thousands you are used to seeing in those often over-inflated Clickbank screen shots, but it’s money.  Interestingly, it came from something I did months ago!  The only “work” I have done today is write this blog post.  🙂  Now, I am going back to bed.

I thought I would share this with you in order to give you some perspective.  I hope it helped.  🙂
