I love when people ask me how many kids I have. When I say “five,” there’s always an expected humorous reaction. Sometimes we get the typical, “don’t you know what causes that?” Other times it’s, “wow, you have an entire basketball team.” Originality is not a requirement when responding to someone who just told you they have five kids.
Passive income: making money while you sleep. Sounds great, right? This is the entire idea behind “retirement.” I use quotations, because most people nowadays agree that retirement simply means not having to work — it doesn’t mean doing absolutely nothing (how retirement used to be viewed).
You know the goal-setting basics. You must set goals, and write them down, and look at them daily, etc.. And you know about S.M.A.R.T. goals, right? Goals should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. I’m not saying any of that is wrong, but goals won’t get you anywhere on their own.
