Passive income. Difficult? Sure. Complicated? Not necessarily...

In this little conversation, I'm digging through the 4 ingredients to make truly passive income from your blog and online business.

1 - monetized (or an offer that converts)

2 - funnel

3 - traffic (or acquisition)

4 - a calculator (for ROI)


The takeaway? Don’t overthink the general strategy.


1. Find an offer that works (through testing)

2. Start mapping out an insanely simple funnel

3. How are you going to get people to the funnel? Answer that question

4. Calculate ROI and test
