Ok, let's say you've made it. You built yourself a passive income. You get a check in the mail every month, whether you work or not.
Well, the truth is we live in a world of change and even passive income requires some effort to maintain. If you built a true passive income based on a solid, duplicatable system, there won't be much maintenance but you'll still need to keep your eye on things.
You still need to be involved with your team and still need to recruit. Just not like you did your first year.
Passive income does not give you freedom from all responsibility. In fact, it sometimes gives you more responsibility. But with passive income, you become a leader. Someone who is in charge of their life. Someone whose time is flexible. Someone who others look up to.
