Not A Bond Girl: Passive Income Strategist
What's the best way to make passive income...that is easy too?
Let's start with my story...
Over the years, I played around with different passive income ideas. I made a ton of mistakes and learned a lot of hard lessons along the way.
In my mid-30s, I reached financial independence retire early (FIRE) by replacing my salary with passive income.
I was finally able to leave a career that was no longer a good fit by creating multiple income streams from investments and side hustles.
More importantly, it was time to get away from East Coast winters! So I quit my job, sold the condo and moved across country. I gave everything away and just shipped my car.
We all know it's not an easy journey to financial freedom, let alone change careers. Join me along my new chapter in sunny California!
A Corporate Dropout's Guide to Passive Income:

Here's one thing I learned...
The best passive income strategy for you is one aligned with your strengths and interests.
Tell James Bond to step aside. It's time to run your own show.
That's right, don't be a Bond Girl. No more of that side kick stuff.
I tried leaving the corporate life 3 times.
The first time was ugly and messy. Second time was a little better. Third time was the charm.
Each time I quit, I didn't have a Plan B.
While I don't recommend resigning without a plan, sometimes you know when enough is enough.
Creating passive income helped me leave the 9-5 lifestyle once and for all. It wasn't easy leaving a steady paycheck and company benefits behind.
Those golden handcuffs are no joke!
