Income For Life.
An income for life is something many strive to achieve but only a few people ever secure it. The lure of easy cash from internet businesses that promise to produce an almost eternal income should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism to say the least. The old adage should ring in your ears "if it sounds too good to be true it usually is". The internet is without a doubt one of the most amazing inventions of the 21st century and touches most of our lives in some way or another for sure. Unfortunately along with the good always comes the not so good and there will always be those ready to exploit this amazing medium to the full.
If you were to do a web search for "income for life" using one of the major search engines it would return over 19,000,000 pages of information relating to your search query. The chances are that 90% of the stuff on there is absolute tosh designed by its perpetrators to part you from your hard earned cash. Even if you had nothing better to do than sift through all this cyber dross the chances are that you would expire with old age well before you located anything remotely life changing. The truth is that most of the money being made from these programs is going into the pockets of the guys promoting them.
So thus far your dreams of an income for life are looking a little tarnished to say the least. But all is not doom and gloom because there are many people out there who have succeeded in securing a long term residual income. For the uninitiated amongst you let me elaborate open the term "residual income". I suppose it sounds like some kind of techno jargon to describe the flow of electricity but it is in fact more to do with the flow of money. More precisely money that flows for a long time to come.
In the conventional business world John Doe goes to work in the morning and spends eight hours producing some goods or services that someone else then pays for. Some of the proceeds of this effort are then passed onto John and he will use it to pay his bills or buy his beer. If john wants to earn some more money tomorrow he will have to go back to work and repeat the process all over again. This is traditional employment and the way that business has been conducted around the world ever since man invented the cash register.
So what, I hear you say isn't that what everybody does? Well err... actually no. You may be fascinated to hear that some people do things a little differently. They do exactly what John do did in the first example by working to earn from their efforts but that's where the similarity ends. You see, the work they do the next day is added to the work they already did on the previous day and so on for every day they choose to work. In other words the effort they put in on day one keeps earning them a profit day after day. Then every other days effort also produces profit every day from then onwards. This is called a residual income because you put the effort in once and then the income keeps on flowing.
The only drawback to this system is that the returns are often small and they take a long time to build up. You may earn 0.00 a day flipping burgers but if you need that amount every day you will need to flip burgers every day. Also you will never earn more than the average rate for the job in any given day. The returns from a residual income plan will be significantly less on a daily basis but they build every single day. So there you have it then. An income for life or a job for life the choice as always is yours.
