4 of the Best Ways to Earn Passive Income with Limited Time and Money

Anyone
who reads this blog on a regular basis knows that earning passive income
doesn’t actually involve zero effort. In most cases, you need to devote some
time and energy to setting up passive income streams before they start yielding
returns.

For
example, many people earn passive income by monetizing their expertise. They
self-publish ebooks or create online courses that share valuable information
with consumers. However, before the earnings begin, they need to create
products. They also need to promote them to ensure potential customers know
they exist.

This
sometimes discourages people from creating their own passive income streams.
Part of the appeal of earning money on the side with little to no effort is the
fact that busy people don’t have time to boost their earnings by taking on
additional jobs or gigs. Thus, many people interested in earning passive income
are so busy, they lack the time necessary

5 Ways To Build Your Personal Brand At Work

The idea of being a “quiet leader” has always appealed to me. I was never a fan of colleagues who seemed to brag or self-promote at work. However, early on in my career, my manager told me that if no one else in the company actually knows about my work accomplishments, those accomplishments won’t really count for much.

Hearing this was a bit of a rude awakening for me. Up until that point, I’d always presumed that my work would speak for itself. I assumed that if I worked hard, the quality and impact would be obvious.

However, as someone who spent the majority of my career working in brand marketing, I quickly discovered the power and necessity of positive PR on the growth and positive trajectory of products and brands.

New report: The Future of FinTech: A Paradigm Shift in Small Business Finance

For decades, banks and insurers have employed the same relatively static, highly profitable business models. But today they find themselves confronted on all sides by innovators seeking to disrupt their businesses. Crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lenders, mobile payments, bitcoin, robo-advisers – there seems to be no end to the diversity, or to the sky-high valuations, of these “fintech” innovators.

However, as they say in investing, “past performance is not an indicator of
