How To Establish A Residual Income

Dec 6, 2007
Do you sometimes feel like you live paycheck to paycheck? Like you and your family are just barely getting by? Do you spend a lot of time dreaming, or wishing you could take your family somewhere for a week or two on vacation? Wouldn't it be awesome to take them to the Bahamas, or Yellowstone, or anywhere for that matter? If you're like me, places like that always look so beautiful in pictures or on television, but in the back of my mind, I have often wondered if they really exist, or if the water really looks like that, because I have never been able to take my family on a real vacation.

For the first time in my life I actually feel like there is hope for that dream, though. I know it's not today, but in time it will happen for us. I know this because of what I have recently learned about network marketing, and the home based business I'm in. There are many jobs that offer vacation pay, usually after the first year with the company you can get one week paid vacation, but is that enough to take your family somewhere for that week? Not in my neighborhood. The only people that usually get to take those vacations are the ones that saved up for them, and it took them a while to do that, but can you imagine being able to take your family on vacation every year, possibly even twice per year?

In order to do something like that you really need a residual income. This is an income that continues to pay you once the source has been established, you continue to collect on it. There are a few different ways to do this. One way is to become a "Rock-Star," you can write a killer song, get a band together, practice the song, spend a huge envelope full of money getting it recorded/mixed in a studio, then another enveolpe full getting it produced and distributed. Then kick back and wait, and if people like your song and buy it, you collect royalties on it for the rest of your life. Pretty sweet, huh,... well I assure you, all of that is much easier said than done. Then there's writing: You can write a good novel, spend countless hours for weeks, months, sometimes years at a time, perfecting every page, every word, every comma, doing your best to come up with the perfect story, something that will capture the reader's attention. Then begin the process of submitting it, having it edited, published, produced and distributed, and again, kick back and wait. Then once people start to buy your book, you can start to enjoy the rewards of the payoff, the residual income from your work.Those are just a couple of ways you can establish a residual income.

Then there's network marketing. This is another way to establish a residual income that a lot of people are not familiar with. It is a business opportunity that has been labeled as a, "pyramid-thing." Over the years it has picked up a bad reputation because of the techniques that have been taught for building the businesses. Unfortunately this has caused a great deal of people to miss out on some excellent opportunities to own their own business, earn residual income, and take their families on those vacations to the places they only dream about. I know this because I was in a network marketing business years ago, and not for very long, and I swore I would never do it again, but the market has changed. Network marketing is a whole lot different than it was back then, and it may be just what you are looking for. You may be quite pleasantly surprised at how much things have changed for the better over the past ten years.
