SPI 192: (Updated Recording) Types of Passive Income Generated Online and What to Expect From Each – Part 1

This week’s episode is the start of something big. It’s the first episode of a three-part series that will become an important part of how I serve my Smart Passive Income audience going forward.

If this episode’s title sounds familiar, you’re not crazy! Back in 2011, I published another three-part series on all the types of income you can generate online (Episodes 15, 16, and 17). That series was very popular—three-quarters of a million downloads!—and remains a huge magnet for new SPI Podcast listeners.

Starting today, I’m revisiting those ideas and adding new, up-to-date information, plus some of the bonus wisdom I’ve gathered from my own experiences with online passive income since those first episodes debuted. It’s got super-valuable information for all of you out there—from long-time fans to first-time listeners.

I’m so excited to bring you guys this awesome, new resource. I hope it sparks some bright ideas for a business of your own.

Thanks for Listening!
