My very first business that I started at age 19 was a multi-level marketing nutrition distribution business. The whole goal of that business was to build up a sales team and create ongoing, passive streams of income, so I got that concept right away. I built that business up over the years and we currently have annual revenues over ten million dollars. The last couple years it’s been a little bit more part-time or quite a bit more part-time as I pursued building my real estate company. But I mean I still love it, I still love the people and I love the, passive streams of income,. Two years into my network marketing company, I read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, that was the book that really transformed my mind to start thinking about utilizing real estate as a way to deploy the cash that I was making in my primary business and add additional, passive streams of income,. I was still investing in stocks until about 4 years ago. I was in stocks for most of the last 14 years, so about four years ago two events happened that were critical and really pushed me over into investing into real estate as another, passive streams of income,
There were two negative events, but you know most negative events if we look back we can find the good in them. One of them was I had some insider information, not anything illegal by any stretch, I mean I knew that our company had a good earnings quarter. I mean it wasn’t that hard to figure out based on what I heard from all my colleagues, so that’s kind of my insider information.
I bought into the stock about a week before the earnings report was to be released expecting things to be great. Well the earnings report was phenomenal and typically, not always but typically stocks go up when the earnings report is great. Well this billionaire Hedge Fund investor was very well known as an activist in terms of shorting stocks. He gets on our company earnings call, he asked three or four pointed questions and then it appeared that he was shorting the stock; the stock drops 30% overnight.
Stocks as a, passive streams of income,
I realized then that I didn’t have control over stocks. Not even a sure thing is guaranteed. I want to be in the driver’s seat and put myself in a great position where I have as much control over the outcome as possible. I took that as my sign that this is my time to learn a new asset class and another, passive streams of income, it was the final push. I told myself, I’m going to draw the line in the sand. So I studied real estate and listened to podcasts for a hundred straight days.
Jack you know that someone listening is going to pay devil’s advocate and say the same thing happens in real estate. What’s your come back on that?
So here’s what we have to consider when looking at real estate as another, passive streams of income, we look at the past. I mean could go back 100 even you know 200 years or whatever, the variance between real estate and the stock market is almost four times different. If you look at historical data, the swing in the stock market is around a variance of 16 or so from year to year. Real estate has a variance of four. That means from year to year on average that the swing in the market is going to be four percent, so you’re not quite so volatile in real estate.
The other part in this, passive streams of income, scenario is it that you’re investing in the real estate as Robert T. Kiyosaki says, for the cash flow that it produces. Not necessarily for it to go up in value. You really don’t care if it appreciates or depreciates. As an investor and you’re renting it out and you will always be able to rent it out for more than the mortgage payment.
At the same time property values will go up eventually, even if it dips for a little in the short term. I was listening to the Automatic Millionaire Homeowner and the author was interviewing homeowners who lived in their homes for about 2 years and then sold and moved to bigger homes, and became millionaires because homes always go up in value.
We’ve discussed real estate, we’ve talked about the stock market and we’ve also talked about multi-level marketing. I understand why that’s been your foundation for, passive streams of income, because you’ve been you’ve been taught well. You stayed in the business for 20 years so you must be really doing well, because everybody that joins the business under you feeds you, passive streams of income,.
Multi-Level Marketing a Tool for generating, passive streams of Income,
Yea, it is phenomenal. If I could describe the business to people without saying what it was they’d be like wow that sounds too good to be true. I have a multi-million dollar business that I work right here from my home office. That I help people with their health and nutrition. I have no employees, I have no accounts receivable. I have no inventory, I have no monthly overhead whatsoever. I have a free cash flowing business that produces ten to twelve million dollars in sales revenue per year. That’s not obviously my income; but a percentage of that.
Skilled , passive streams of income: Writing a book, Music, software
That’s why, passive streams of income, is so important. On my website, www.myhelps.com I talk about a some other forms of, passive streams of income, like writing a book, or writing music. Mariah Carey wrote the song “All I want for Christmas” in 15 minutes. She’s generated sixty million dollars in royalties off of that 15 minute work. So her, passive streams of income, is phenomenal.
Explain what we mean by, passive streams of income, which ones would you recommend it to a seasoned investor or someone just starting out?
Passive income is created from work you have done in the past, that is paying you today.
You have one or two scenarios. You either have money at work or capital at work and you’re drawing royalties. There’s multiple ways to go about creating, passive streams of income, it boils down to either unskilled or skilled forms of passive income. It’s like what you talked about in terms of creating music and selling music, or writing a book, or creating a piece of software that you then are able to license out and sell. Those are very technical skills, very skilled types of, passive streams of income,.
Creating, passive streams of income, from a business I won’t say is unskilled in terms of work. It does it takes skills to put the right management team in place. There’s a way you can have any type of business that you set up to become a, passive income stream, if you’re not involved directly in day-to-day operations, then it’s a, passive income stream, business.
