Well, I’m underway, I suppose. I designed a simple t-shirt and posted it in a cafepress and zazzle shop.
My chances of making any noteworthy money on it, however, are practically nil. This is really more of a warm-up exercise. Three products online by the end of the month, and a blog. The blog will be where I intend to garner the attention needed to actually SELL some products.
For the blog to come into existence, I just need to sit down a few nights and think about what would suit me and the market best.
I question at this point whether it’s even possible to make money without working a lot… I suppose there’s no way to find out but to try. 1 month ago
It’s been a little while since I’ve been on 43 Things. I suppose I haven’t had a lot to say. There’s been little development in most of my goals, but they’re all coming along.
But now I have a new one.
I’m an amateur (but very skilled) artist and designer with a background and skills in many useful areas, like science, yoga, marketing, clinical hypnosis, self help, manufacturing, computers, and writing… so why do I not have a single penny of passive income? This is something that needs fixing.
I’ve dubbed the project Greensleeves and have put about two or three hours of work into product design and general planning so far. I’ve decided on some likely directions to pursue and made notes on them. I think I probably need some specific goals, though.
-I will have at least three products on sale by the end of May, nothing remarkable, just t-shirts and the like, but something designed with marketing in mind.
-I will start a blog of some kind by then as well.
That seems like a good place to start. 1 month ago
I recently read the 4 hour work week. Good job Tim Ferris – you are the man. I really do admire what you have done and hope accomplish the same for myself. My plan is this: (1) Stock / Bond income (2) Passive income stream from internet business (3) Trading of my personal account 12 months ago
Is passive, it comes no matter what I do. It doesn’t rise by very much at all though, and I’ve been on it for 11 years. I’ve been looking for a job with the help of the commission for the blind for about 9 years now, and while I’ve worked for 6-8 months here and there I haven’t exactly found a job. I’m ready to strike out on my own I think. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very, very thankful for what I have, because without it, I wouldn’t be able to live on my own, (with the help of a care provider!) But I’m just ready to be done with it. 13 months ago
