208: Why Your Passive Income Strategy Isn’t Working (And What To Do Instead), with Mike Kim

Uncategorized Dec 14, 2022


Have you believed the myth that passive income will solve everything? In this week’s episode, I’m joined by best-selling author and marketing expert Mike Kim as he shares with us a simple and doable way to continually generate income over time.


We talk about:

  • Key practices to make the transition from being just self-employed, to being a business owner (and why that matters)
  • How to develop an income-generating intellectual property piece that doesn’t take a lot of time to create
  • Why you have to keep showing up and creating content if your product is going to continue to sell


You’ll learn exactly what it takes to launch and market a product that doesn’t take much time to create, while still providing value to your audience. This episode will give you the motivation and ideas you need to turn your ideas into income!
