Money

Active vs Passive Income

There are 2 types of income:

Active Income: You are trading time for money. In order to make money you must perform something. Every day you start from zero.

Passive Income: You do not have to be present to generate income. Things like real estate, stocks, bonds are sources of passive income. You are literally making money while sleeping.
