Passive Income?
« on: Mon, 16 April 2018, 18:29:18 »
Was watching some YouTube and came across some videos on how to make extra side income apart from a daily 9-5 job. Many folks if lucky to be able to work rely on a single income stream and if that goes away you are royally screwed without any savings. Even with a job though many people still struggle pay check to pay check. It seems like one option instead of working more hours or trying find another job that pays incrementally better is to pursue the passive income stream model. So for example if you make video reviews about keyboards you might eventually rake in some dough on a continual basis without actively working for that revenue ;D

Does anyone here have any passive income streams, tips, or ideas to share?

I know a guy who buys glitter by the drum, repackages into smaller packages and sells to strip clubs  :))

how much glitter do they go through ?

The girls in china don't often wear glitter,  the business is suppose to be discreet, because there are technically no legal stripclubs..

And businessmen who engage in services don't want Evidence..

I have no idea how much glitter he goes through. I hear that Florida is covered with glitter and cocaine though. Glitter does not go away. Like why are all these $100 bills covered in glitter?

First you need some seed money to start, about $2-5k sitting around to get the ball rolling although $10k would be even better.

Stabilize your life first, make sure you have a reliable vehicle, good mortgage, own property. Have some liquid savings cash set aside for emergency, have some solid bonds for backup. Convert those to muni bonds which are tax exempt once your flow increases. Look into real estate, rental payments, and index funds. Maybe put small amounts into Lenders Club or auto-investors if you feel ballsy.

I'm not terribly sure why everyone recommends (Investing).  There are professionals that do this, and make out poorly.

To think that just-anyone could do it, and profit,   that's just what wallstreet casinos want people to believe..

Maybe to a small segment of professionals, what they do can be construed as "investing"

The rest of the people (especially casuals) are merely Gambling..

I'm not going to tout Bitcoin as a solid investment, but here it is in contrast to other major companies. I'd like to point out that all these investments turned out to be great after a long holding period.

It almost doesn't even matter what you invest in, just get started now.

Just get a very stable stock with consistent dividends, that is prob the most "passive" you'll get. Maybe not the most profitable, but should give higher rates than a bank.

Also BTC is far to volatile to be a passive income. Buying a lottery ticket isn't passive income

I've actually made a decent amount in the past with Amazon mTurk. It's not exactly "passive" but it's pick up and put down work so you can do it at your convenience.

Not so easy anymore with weed becoming legal, many dealers just buy their **** from dispensaries and resell them without even bothering to repackage it.

But it used to be a very viable option for anyone who could handle themselves, especially in a college town you could easily make upwards of $2-5k a week tax free. Well, you used to be able to anyway.

Yeah, but they're selling it on the street corner... on the opposite side of the street from ANOTHER Starbucks. What's the name of the business practice/tactic where you essentially own your own competition so even if one is losing, the other side is winning and win/win?

Know a girl who left her 5 year PM job at Microsoft to be a full-time bikini barista in some little shack in a parking lot. She says she makes almost 2x as much before taxes if she puts in 42hrs a week there. Sometimes I wish I were a sexy lady too :(

Top end USA escorts make ~$300,000, tax free.. So that's equivalent of ~$400,000

Silicon Valley, last I hurd..

Can't say it's a good job, high stress/mental strain.. PTSD..

But heck, they make in 3-4 years what Some people make in a lifetime.

And mechanically, it's probably still better than being a model

It's an exceptionally simple one-step reaction, and if you use an easily washed off reagent, like DIC, you can purify the product with little difficulty. Moreover, LSD is incredibly active, with microgram doses per go, so even a few grams is about a MILLION doses. Being a chemist is fun sometimes ^^ .

Of course, the precursors, which are very simple compounds actually, are under pretty strict watch, and not easy to obtain.

That microgram/milligram thing can make a big difference ....
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

Heroin/ Meth/ Cocaine ,  they all break the brain too completely for the addict to reintegrate...

Once a person's on it, it's over..

It's an exceptionally simple one-step reaction, and if you use an easily washed off reagent, like DIC, you can purify the product with little difficulty. Moreover, LSD is incredibly active, with microgram doses per go, so even a few grams is about a MILLION doses. Being a chemist is fun sometimes ^^ .

Of course, the precursors, which are very simple compounds actually, are under pretty strict watch, and not easy to obtain.


Are many professional chemists just DIYn' their own highs in their spare time.. ??

What do chemists do for fun -that involves chemistry- ??

Blow **** up?

When I found out how prevalent and easy it was to find escorts it was actually pretty surprising. Entire websites with actual college girls trying to cover rent for 'dates' it's insane the amount of women willing to do that in basically every town in the US. Always assumed it was a few drugged out skanks in the seedy part of town, but nope not at all.

No, it's actually just an HUGE Surplus of drugged out skanks..

This explosion of supply followed the boom of opiate prescription and addictions.


All escorts prep a story they know Johns like to hear, like, tuition, little brother, sick mother, cancer dad,   but the majority fund goes towards drugs..

Thoughts on  Pimping


The word on the street that it is not easy.

However, there are opposing viewpoints.

I think if one could enter into a healthy working arrangement and a reasonable management style, the oppressive violence and manipulation of fear traditionally leveraged in a pimp's game could be altered to the benefit of the escorts. Profit-sharing, healthcare/insurance coverage, flexible work hours and having the freedom to work remotely/out of office are all attractive benefits that the traditional pimp does not advertise, but could do so to get better talent. Keep it clean, drug-free, and low-pressure and consider it as free-lance management or being an agent. Sadly too many pimps rely on their own side-gig income from illegal drug sales, which feeds into them using it to control their workers.

You see, a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.

This really just keeps coming around full circle to drugs and hookers escorts.

Rental property, oil and gas rights, and dividend paying stocks all seem to pay fairly well from what I've seen with clients of mine, and are true passive income in that there is little to no time required for that income.

Alright we just need to come up with a solid business plan. The profits can then be used to either buy shiny things or invest in more legit passive income options like real estate. Just meet me on the seedy under belly of the internet to flesh out the details. Oh wait, is that here?  :p

Ya know, if someone were to get into the LSD market these days they could easily corner it given a large enough production facility.  :rolleyes:
I could probably make enough LSD to supply the whole world for a year in half a day, given the precursors.

Well, sounds like we have a business strat - produce LSD and ship vintage keyboards with the keycaps pre-dosed (homing keys are hitting extra strong today guys) for that extra psychedelic tactile (cosmic) feedback... Warnings about avoiding the brown acid could be applied to MX browns :D
It's an exceptionally simple one-step reaction, and if you use an easily washed off reagent, like DIC, you can purify the product with little difficulty. Moreover, LSD is incredibly active, with microgram doses per go, so even a few grams is about a MILLION doses. Being a chemist is fun sometimes ^^ .

Of course, the precursors, which are very simple compounds actually, are under pretty strict watch, and not easy to obtain.

Passive income idea:

Get a decent high-speed internet package

Get a wireless access point with a customizable click-through access page

Host ads on the click through page, and make the wifi public access (limited bandwidth per person, on a dedicated VLAN for security).

There's no way you'd get enough ad rev to pay for the connection.

Otherwise internet would already be thoroughly free..


The only way to do this would be to hack someone else's router, using a segment of their bandwidth.



I guess, this is the addendum on your plan..

Step 1: Learn hacking

Even better: Set up a hotspot in a major metropolitan area and charge people $5/hour for use of the hotspot. People who are in the area for business will just pay for it and get reimbursed by their company.

There's no reason to charge them if you're deploying mining bots on their mechs.

To believe that valuable things are offered for free is naïve. Payoff will come in strange ways in come cases, or differed in time in others. Like the FB case, people are giving up for nothing what is the most valuable asset, their private information, that in turn the company sell for millions, literally.

For my job i work as Paper delivery part-time. It's a good way to earn a bit of extra income.
They pay me about 25 dollars a month. Hopefully that's enough to get saving on keycaps.
They're really common and depending on what amount of flyers you do they can pay really well.
One of my parent did a paper route for The Hamilton Spectator almost every day and got paid really well for it.

When you have literally zero talent or ability but somehow have managed to manipulate strangers into supporting your unemployment. If being a useless drain on the planet is your thing...

We are creating an entire generation of useless self-centered expectant do nothing's, and I'm not going to support them one iota when their social media bull**** stops paying bills they have no right to be paying. When they discover people have moved on and they actually don't have any skills or talents.

The fact that this "job" is even MENTIONED is a passive income thread proves my point.

NT,  it's just prostitution lite, not glamourous, but it's always been a thing.

Lacking proper public education, a person haven't many choices, it's either  Waiter/Waitress, prostitution lite, or prostitution.

Arguably, young people who choose lite, is a cut above full. None of them are bad people.

The human hedonistic inefficiencies create oligarchies, oligarchies install wealth gaps, wealth gaps coincide education gaps, education gaps make poverty, poverty leads to dehumanizing occupations.

It's how successful social media people act like they are important or deserving of their success in any way when all they are doing is preying on the pocketbooks of others through sheer social manipulation, and how they think they got one over on the rest of the planet by circumnavigating any learning or hard work others go through to get to the financial position they had handed to them by people who are worse off than they are.

A few years ago there was a kid (guy? he was about 25 going on about 14) who worked at my company and constantly came up with money-making schemes, mostly hare-brained at best or just plain stupid.

I tired to befriend him and gently demonstrate the implausibility of his ideas, for example my kids and I have done some kitchen-table "art" silk-screening T-shirts. When he got excited about selling screen printed clothing, I actually brought in a screen, some ink, and a blank T-shirt which I printed on a table in the break room. I hoped that it would show him what the actual real-world mechanics of it looked like and give him an anchor point.

His response was to tell me how he needed to recruit some "important" "influencers" to push his merchandise. Did I mention that he was not at all artistic and did not have any catchy ideas for images to actually print on the clothing?

Just about then my wife and I watched a documentary on the Fire Island Music Festival, and how it was a complete disaster on every level. (off-topic - Why did they even bother with a few tents and some grilled cheese sandwiches? It was far more embarrassing to do that than to just take the money and run.)

So brought that up to him as an example of the horror of idiots following their "influencers" but yes, he had seen it and saw it as a triumph of the power of influencers on the internet!
 
I threw up my hands. Honesty and truth had not risen to the level of being visible on his radar screen.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

The kind of individual that they make golden parachutes for.

I read about a seminar that included leaders from only fortune 500 companies.  One of the questions was "If you could make 5x your profits in 1 year, but be out of business in 3, or steadily increase to 2.5x your profits in 5 years and have a stable company which would you choose?"

Sadly, I think it's pretty obvious which one most of the room chose.

Back on the investment train, it's probably the most passive thing you can get into. Ask yourself, "Will this stock be worth more or less money in the next 3 - 5 years?". If more, then buy it now and just forget about it.

On real-estate investments, people like to claim it's passive but it's not. It is a very good way to make some extra income or build equity. It can become passive if you get a property management company to handle the tenants.

Now, this whole Amazon Drop Shipping thing is anything but passive. It's actually a lot of work. I went to a little seminar a while ago and it's better than a lot of other jobs out there but it's still a job. Just like buying barrels of glitter and repackaging them into smaller bags to sell to strip clubs. Sounds like a good amount of time invested.

There is usually going to be a lot of up-front time invested in order to make a revenue stream fully automated or passive. I think it'd be much better to find something you like doing with your time and maybe making money with it. Like growing micro-greens in your garage / closet and selling them at farmer's markets or restaurants. Art is great. Make that.

"Passive" income is kind of misleading. Even buying stocks takes some effort, but if the stock goes up over some period of time, you didn't do anything but click a few buttons and risk a few dollars to profit off that growth.

This is the largest thing.  There's always research and due diligence and set up costs, no matter how "passive" the activity is.  And there's some level of maintenance- taking the investments, you have to keep your eye on them even if they're something that you're investing in for the long haul.  Companies' fortunes rise and fall, and your invested money is subject to the same tides.

I am so disgusted at myself. I was going to put money into AMD back when it was < $4 a share but had trouble setting up my brokerage account. At the time work was stressing me out and was suffering from depression and I gave up too soon. Every time you bring up AMD is a painful reminder of that time. I would hold onto AMD if I were you.

At the time work was stressing me out and was suffering from depression and I gave up too soon. Every time you bring up AMD is a painful reminder of that time. I would hold onto AMD if I were you.

Kekeke.. Opportunities everyday..  we got gold' all over the floor righ now.  Just gotta flex some Brain p0wr.

Wild west land grab.

BBY may be ready to blast off.

Problem right now is the gigantic NVDA/TSLA bubble.   If they pop, we can expect 3 to 6% Dip in all the neighbors.   This is problematic because  the gain for a week up to earnings is only 5-10%.  And it takes 2 days minimum before funds refocus.

Timing is really tight, the bubble shrinking the window.  It's a foggier window.
