Passive Income - Not So Passive After All

I have no clue what I searched for on YouTube. I am now bombarded with people, normally sat on a beach, or by a pool, wanting to share with me how they make thousands from 'Passive Income'.

"Stop Work Now - Learn the Secrets - Live the Life of Your Dreams!"

There is nothing 'Passive' about what they are selling. Mostly they are Information Marketing Pyramid Schemes. Snake oil.

Property is often seen as a way to make 'Passive Income'. I know several successful developers. Nothing about owning and renting out property is passive. It is hard bloody work.

Daniel Priestley talks about the damaging effects of making Passive Income a goal. It limits creativeness. Stunts growth.

Please stop YouTube. I don't believe them and I'm not interested. "
