The true definition of Passive Income freedom – By Douglas Vermeeren, #1 Passive Income Coach

IMG_0743

Too often passive income gets a bad rap because everyone thinks those creating it are just out to make some money for themselves and then sit on a beach somewhere. Recently y students proved once again that this is not the case.

I was so proud to see that so many of our students have understood that the true purpose of wealth is ultimately to bless the lives of other people too.

Passive income isn’t just about making your own life easier and gaining your own freedom. In the truest sense it is about liberating all within our influence and seeking to extend that influence wherever we go. True freedom and joy come as we are able to create abundance beyond our immediate circumstances.

I am grateful agin to my students who are taking the lead to demonstrate in the world the true meaning of abundnace and a passive income lifestyle. Thank you!

How can I create Passive income? From the #1 Passive Income Coach

How do I create passive income streams?

What is a good Passive Income Stream?

Can I become Financially Free through Passive Income?

Where do I start in creating Passive Income?

Many people don’t create their financial freedom through passive income because they think it’s complex and you need a special kind of smarts. Like anything else in life passive income can be learned and it’s actually a lot easier to do than most people think . Generally speaking people make simple things complex because of fear. Don’t let fear keep you from your freedom. Just because you haven’t done something before doesn’t mean you can’t do it.

And do it you must if you want to become financial free. Now passive Income isn’t always what you are told. It doesn’t necessarily mean living on the beach, driving the fancy car and travelling around the world. It could mean that. But that’s a choice. What it means more than anything is that you STOP trading your time, efforts, freedom and inspiration for money. You no longer have to make the exchange. And those things: time, effort, freeomd and inspiration become yours again. So quite frankly I think that’s bigger than the beach, a car or travel. You can don those things — but the really is you can do anything you like.

The formula for creating Pasive Income is relatively simple. It can be done online or offline. Typically it is done in one of the follloing five categories:

  1. Business
  2. Real Estate
  3. Investment
  4. Intellectual Property
  5. Leveraging networks and relaitonships

In a future article I will share some specific ideas and strategies in each of these areas. for today I want to unfold for you the simple Passive Income Equation. This is the equation of what you will need to hasve in place in order to produce passive income.

It looks like this:

Asset/service + Customer Transaction + Vehicle = Passive Income

Let me share a little bit about each one. If you want to learn more about this head over to my blog, social media or grab my book for $5 bucks. (Link at the bottom of the article.)

Asset/Service — This is what you are going to be providing to the cusotmer. Naturally to create passive income you need to have something to sell. You will either sell a physical asset (product) or a service.

The asset or service must either solve a problem or fill a need. We’ll get into more on this later.

When it comes to passive income the asset must be something that can be shared with out you present and I’ll get more into that as I talk about vehicles. And if its a service it must be delegated to the service provider. Again this needs to be done without your involvement — and I’m just getting to that.

Customer Transaction — Naturally this is the goal of the process. How do you get people to buy something. In the future we’ll tlak more about how you are going to do this from a psychology point of view. But for todays purposes I am simply going to point out that you need to develop the correct transaction for your customer. Which means how much is the product or service? What are they really going to get? And what kind of customer are you aiming at?

Most people only have one kind of product available for a customer and as a result lose a lot of sales. There are two kinds of transactions you will want to consider for your cusotmers. I call it Math and Diamonds.

Math focuses on quantity and the product is generally inexpensive.

Diamond focuses on quality and is generally more expensive.

I advise my students to have both as there will be people who want to fast track their solution and they’ll pay more for the support and quality. But you’ll also have a large number, who until they know you, may not be willig to make a big investment.

Vehicle — Is the method of delivery. How will you share the asset or service with the cusotmer. This is where most people fail in creating passive income. They create an income stream — but it’s not passive.

This vehcile can be create offline or online. But it. needs to be a system where you are not involved in the delivered or exchange and money is collected without you present. You must find a way to replace you.

If you are a cog in the wheel you become a clog in the wheel.

In passive income you will often put in significant effort and work at this stage. But you do it only once and get paid forever. Most people don’t understand that even passive income will require occassional maintenance to keep the vehicle operating effectively. So be prepared to check in occassionally on this.

Passive Income in Ancient times – #1 Passive Income Coach

#1 Passive Income Coach Douglas Vermeeren

What a great setting to talk about how old passive income really is. This is me in front an ancient Hieroglyph wall from Ancient Egypt. This was in the Royal Museum in London.

Passive Income has been in existence from the beginning of time. It is not something new that arrived with the internet. Although for some passive income possibilities the internet certainly makes it easier.

Passive Income relies on the principles of leverage, creativity, duplication and systems. When you can understand how to use these specific vehicles to sell more you can create passive income.

Most people never create passive income because they don’t understand these principles. And more than that they don’t understand that these principles can apply in almost any transaction or scenario. They cna be used in business, real estate, investing, capitalizing on your own Intellectual property and even in working with your networks.

Passive Income is the foundation of all wealth. You will never be able to become wealthy unless you understand the principles of passive income or how the transactions that bring money into your life can be duplicated. Passive income comes from activity not by accident.

Passive income has been practiced since the dawn of time. Ancient cultures practiced these leveraged forms of money creation through activities such as money lending, real estate rental, using slaves as labor (not recommended today), and hiring workers to manage stores and so forth. Today there are many other tools that we can use to help create leverage, creativity, duplication and systems that will sell on your behalf. Sometimes these systems will use people other times they may not.

If you look at the history of passive income you’ll quickly recognize that it’s becoming easier, quicker and less-expensive to create passive income than every before.

Now is your time – get started and start taking back the time you are trading for money.

Passive Income is supposed to be just that PASSIVE. That means that it does not occupy much of your time once it is set up and running. Can you believe that as I am here snorkelling and finding sea shells I am making money. This is the kind of experience I believe everyone should have. And it’s not that difficult to do if you know the right systems to set up.

Passive income is your ticket to freedom and it is the way that all wealthy people build their fortunes.

No one wealthy trades time for money.

They just don’t do it.

I am just about to launch my newest ebook that will show you how to build passive income in your life. I am excited about this because this book reveals how you can actually create passive income using easy to follow ideas and strategies. In this book I dispel so many of the passive income myths that cause most people to think it’s just too hard. It’s not.

It really easy quite straight forward and there are specific things steps you can take immediately that will make it even easier. Stay tuned and shortly you can get your own copy of this easy to use manual for wealth.

#1 Passive Income Coach – Passive Income allows you to seek out Adventure.

Douglas Vermeeren #1 Passive Income Coach 3

That was a fun day as I stood for the first time on the Great Wall of China. I never eer thought I would see this place live growing up. It just wasn’t a possibility given the financial circumstances I had come from. We were broke and the closest I ever came to this kind of adventure was borrowing books from teh Public library.
That day however I realized how much Passive Income had changed my life. It literally opened the doors to adventure for me.
Now as I stood on the Great Wall I had another epiphany.
You can see from the picture that The Great Wall goes on for miles and miles, stretching over hills and mountains further than the eye can see. SOme have even said that The Great Wall is the largest manmade object on earth - even visible from outer space.
Here’s the epiphany. As I stood on the Great Wall I looked down a tmy feet and saw that the entire Wall was made up of small bricks. It was then that I realized that the reason why most people never build financial freedom through passive income is that they look for the big payoff. (The Wall) and they neglect how the wall is built. (Small bricks.)
The lesson don’t neglect starting with small passive income streams. Recognize that you will need to build several small streams to create your life of financial freedom.
Passive Income allows you to step out from behind a desk or a job and LIVE! Our planet has so many amazing things to see and do. Most people will never have the chance to explore even a fraction of it.
You don’t want that to be you. Seize the day, embark one the exciting journey which is life! And that opportunity can become your daily life through Passive Income!

Douglas Vermeeren #1 Passive Income Coach quote

I still remember the day I showed at a business meeting in my Ferrari. (This car in the picture is actually not mine – it’s my friend Ryans. And it’s a Lambo for those who know their cars. By the way he makes his money passively too.)

Any ways, I showed up in this meeting in my Ferrari and I was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, flip flops and a baseball cap. It was a big real estate deal and everyone else was in a proper business suit. At first I was uncomfortable because I wasn’t aware that the meeting was going to be so formal. One of the guys beside me sensing I was feeling uncomfortable leaned over simply said, “You can show up in Shorts and a T-shirt or anything else you want when you drive a nice car.” Everyone around the table laughed. I’ll never forget that moment.

And since then I have thought about how having a passive income lets you live the life you want regardless of the setting. The bottom line is when you live with passive income you don’t have the same rules as other people.

Douglas Vermeeren # 1 Passive Income CoachAll traditional streams of income require a trade. At the top of the list of things that you are trading is time. Time is your most valuable asset and the one thing you can never replace. Passive Income is the most powerful tools you cancreate to recapture your time and ultimately your life.

Passive income arrives as you understand how to create value or package the value you already have in ways that it can be systematized and leveraged. Most people never take the time to figure this out and as a result they get stuck in the rat race.

Make a commitment today to start leveraging your value in the marketplace.
