$1856 passive income while on vacation 🔥

Passive income is awesome!! 🔥

Yesterday I came home from a 10/11 day vacation with zero active work. During this time I made:

  • $378 on Gumroad (eBook sales)
  • $223 on YouTube (ads)
  • $1255 on Udemy (course sales)
    Total: $1856

Two years ago this seemed impossible to imagine for me. 🤯

I'm posting this because I want to inspire you to start working towards something like this.

I was highly inspired to see something like this before (and I still am) and this had a huge impact on my journey!

It won't be easy and it will definitely take some time, but it's totally worth it!

Give it a try (if you haven't already)! 😁

    Thank you Florin, this is very inspiring indeed 🔥

    I'm bootstrapping my startup with my wife. Two weeks ago we took our first week off since starting almost 3 years ago. We made 5 sales / $450 with logology during that time, fully passive.

    This really felt like a dream coming true 🚀

      That's awesome! Congrats!!

    Congrats on the success! What's your eBook / course?

    Hey thanks for sharing and congrats!

    I'm just curious. I see you have 111k subs on youtube, you reaped $223 in a 10 day period. If we extrapolate, this makes approx $675/m. I don't know about monetization on Youtube, but this sounds very low for 111k subs (which is quite a lot of subs, congrats on that!). Am I missing something or is Youtube really screwing creators?

      Well... there are 2 factors which made the income to be so low:

      1. The niche. I'm getting paid $2-3 per 1000 views. Nothing much I can do there, AFAIK. All I can do is to make better views which might get more views.
      2. I haven't posted consistently in the past 6 months, which affected my overall views/revenue.

      IMO, YouTube is great and I recommend it. You just have to play it right and it also takes time. 😊

      Also, keep in mind that this is only from ad revenue. That is usually one of the smallest revenue streams for a YouTuber.

      Hope it helped.

      I'd be curious to know, too !

    Well done Florin! What are your plans for the future?

    1. 1

      I want to grow the passive income to 10k+ 😊

    Congrats Florin! You are a true inspiration. Hoping to get there myself :)

      Glad I could inspire you! I wish you all the best!

    Congrats Florin!

    Sales made when drinking beers with friends or while vacationing are always the sweetest :D
