Passive Income

Passive income, simply put, is money making money without any effort on your part.  This can come in the form of rent from real estate, interest from savings accounts, dividends from stocks and mutual funds, and interest from bonds.  If you ever want to become financially independent, then you better find a way to produce passive income.  Without it, you will forever have to work for your money, and unless you are super-human you will not be able to work forever.  I will show you how to start creating passive income.  Again, I will “show you”… I will not do it for you.  You have to execute what you learn.

Dividend-Paying Stocks

   Essentially, for every share of a dividend stock that you own, you are paid a portion of the company’s earnings. You get paid simply for owning the stock!  A nice way to grow your wealth.

 

   For example, let’s say Company X pays an annualized dividend of 20 cents per share. Most companies pay dividends quarterly (four times a year), meaning at the end of every business quarter, the company will send a check for 1/4 of 20 cents (or 5 cents) for each share you own. This may not seem like a lot, but when you have built your portfolio up to thousands of shares, and use those dividends to buy more stock in the company, you can make a lot of money over the years. The key is to reinvest those dividends!
