A conversation around passive income👇

Freelancing is heavily associated with what we would call 'active income'. For instance, you would get paid for the hours you put in for a project.

However, there is another way to earn money by freelancing, but with 'passive income'.

Passive income is income that requires minimal effort to earn and maintain. It is something the earner initially goes through the efforts of setting up first, and once established as something that can generate a source of revenue, can sit back and reap the fruits of their labour.

As with most things that seem a bit too good to be true, it is quite difficult to start earning a significant passive income. If you do it right though, your efforts will eventually start bringing in money while only requiring minimal work towards maintenance.
