    When it comes to #qotd i don't think this video has "changed" my opinion on automated income (I love that term by the way) because I've always liked it. And I've always enjoyed every video you've done on the topic, always some great ideas and some outside the box ideas (I like the bit about the vending machine business as well) If people think having to "do something" "isn't passive income" then do they not go to the shops to spend the money they've made through passive income? Do people not go to the bank sometimes to take out the earnings they've made from passive income ever? Sure, you have to do SOME work to start passive income, even if it includes a bit of coding, a bit of designing, or even just setting up a profile with whatever affiliate program you're with, but that shouldn't put people off from even trying.

    I'm now just trying to ramp up streams. I'm a slow learner, but i'll get there, and these videos definitely help open up ideas I'd never thought of before. Cheers Roberto!

    (on a side note, are you using a new camera for this video? I'm noticing a significant sharpness boost, or different lighting? Either way, this is video is looking amazing!)

    Bring value first! Create high-quality and evergreen content that helps people. It's only one way to get passive income. When you have a loyal audience than add your products or affiliate programs.

  • Reply ladyinvestigator January 15, 2020 at 6:34 am

    Maybe I'm wrong, but you (and all the other people who make this type of video) are forgetting to say one very important thing: you have to be "famous" to earn in this way. A "normal" person who has for example 1000 subs on YT, maybe 1500 follower on IG, etc. will earn something like 2$ at month with ref link. So please, don't deceive people, to earn a decent amount with passive income you must be famos, or at least popular. (Sorry for my bad English)

    I know some people dislike the term "automation" due to the politics of it, but the fact is, sometimes, manual labor isn't always efficient. We would rather have calculators than pay someone to manually calculate everything by hand, for example.

    Absolutely more confident to create and lean about automated income! Wish I had your brain when I was 20!! It's however, never too late to start thinking business. It's mostly cause we have that tendency to always look back in time and "complain" (better said- justify) about the things we don't have now and why they are the result of the past. Yes, they are, but that doesn't mean, in any way, that they have to continue being the same. We need (if this is what we want, of course), to change now so, Thank you, Roberto for showing us (also people like me), how to look forward! Really appreciated. This video is gold as all your content

  • Reply Shal Music FX January 15, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    I will say it made me more confident about the prospects of automated income. My bigger concern is about how to turn that income into something I can live off of. I'm assuming that while you have a big automated income stream, you got to that size because of the hard work you put into your YouTube channel to grow an audience. It's like, you're leveraging the work you're already doing in order to make money from it. So, I'm wondering how viable these income streams are for people whose audiences are much smaller than yours.

I was writing a book but at the moment I got writer's block. Passive income to me is money that you make with no effort on your part, just invest and let the money do the work. For me you either make money or make excuses, you can't do both.
