Welcome to passively.io!

I’m delighted to have you as part of our passive income community. I created this site to help people like you make a passive income like my own, so that you too can enjoy the freedom of working when and where you choose.

I spent years working in conventional businesses where I traded time for money, and spent most of my time doing things I didn’t actually want to do, simply to earn my living.

In 2009, that all changed as the passive income I had been quietly building up over the last couple of years, took off. In fact, it fairly quickly exceeded the income I was making from working 50+ hours per week, and if I took a  week off, it still continued just the same.

I could no longer afford to keep working on things that only paid me once — it was a waste of my time, when I could be concentrating on building a residual income that continued well after I’d done the work to create it.

So in 2009, I closed my agency and have lived off passive income ever since.

My definition of passive income

Some people will tell you there’s no such thing as passive income. Well I’m here to tell you there is! Although it might be more accurately called residual income.

Passive income in my terms is income that persists after you have done the work to create it.

There is no such thing as passive income with no work (and that’s what people are getting at really when they say there is no such thing), but it is possible to create income that continues after you’ve done the work, and which no longer requires your real-time input.

What we are concerned with in this blog, is really creating freedom. The freedom to work when and where (and if!) you choose, without your income being directly coupled to the time you spend working.

It usually takes quite a lot of work to create the sort of passive income I’m talking about, but then, if we’ve done it right, it will continue with only the minimal amount of work required to maintain it.

In this blog, I have also added a couple of additional criteria to my definition of passive income — that it doesn’t require any significant financial investment to start, and that it happens online through automated systems, relieving you of the need to be ‘present’ in real-time.
