This has been a fractured but productive week. More product descriptions completed, but no new jewelry products online yet. I had the satisfaction of taking two SOLD items off the site (hurrah!). I outlined my new eBook and secured the domain to sell it.
And a first – I got a call from a lead that found us on Twitter. Seriously!
So why do all these seemingly multitudes of things all at the same time? To get to my goal that I’m sure many others share – multiple streams of income. More specifically, PASSIVE INCOME.
For those of you just jumping into the boat, let me define passive income from our illustrious IRS; “Trade or business activities in which you do not materially participate.” That sounds perfect! What’s your vision for this scenario? My habitual visualization for this scenario are stacks of checks in my mailbox… daily.
I’m reminded of the scene in Julie & Julia (great movie, I recommend it highly!) where Julie kicks her idea into gear by stating out loud to her husband, “I could write a blog… I have thoughts.” What are your ideas? What do you think about?
Timothy Ferriss, author of “The 4-Hour Workweek” and numerous adventures in living, has kept me on track with his straight to action focus. One key item I revisited this week is highlighted in Step 1 of his book: “The better question to ask isn’t “What do I want?”… but “What would excite me?”
What does excite you? Make you jump out of bed in the morning? The old adage “Do what you want and you won’t work a day in your life” does have merit. Its not the work but the result that work can bring to you.
What habits/rituals do you do to keep your dream alive and kicking? Excitement about what works for you could help someone else. Share your story… excitement can be contagious.
