This down economy certainly is putting many people, many families, in a bad position. Most have not diversified their income and developed a significant second income stream, and when something happens to their main source of income, they are in dire straits.

Passive residual income is the one I’ve found to be the best way to go for that. Also greatly helpful is to find ways to eliminate debt (mortgages, credit cards, auto loans, etc) and pay them off as soon as possible. I’ve learned how to do that, and now I share with and educate others. A wonderful thing to be a blessing, to help, to be responsive and be a benefit to others in unique life-impacting ways.

Be well,
