The Myth of Passive Income with Phillip Ramsey and Bryan Dewhurst

Episode 57:

Passive income sounds so nice. You make a pile of money while sitting on a beach somewhere. But does it really work like that? Not really. In fact, we don’t like the term ‘passive income’ and much prefer terms like ‘passionate income’ or even ‘active income.’ But why?

This episode is all about the goal we all have, which is financial and time freedom. Even if that means sitting on a beach somewhere, how do you get there? It’s like any “overnight success.” It takes time and effort. It starts with identifying your passion and discovering ways to create residual income and cash flow from that passion.

Because the truth is, passive income isn’t truly passive if you do it right. It’s passionate income. It is a lifestyle, it is a movement. It’s aligning your God-given gifts with a path to that time and financial freedom. That’s the path we love helping our clients with, and it’s what we want for you.
