    20 minutes into the video and just realized I’ve watched like 10 videos of yours before, but I just didn’t recognize you with a beard until you showed me some footage of you without a beard ๐Ÿ™‚ Crazy how a beard can change a face.

    Nothing is truly "Passive" in life.

  5. Shorty Kean on July 19, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Dropshipping is the best way to secure passive income. I have 3 years experience in dropshipping, now one of my store generates 2000$ monthly. I used to spend hours on product research, but now I have my products prepared by website WinnerZila. They add five new products every week. I guess they need some time to find winning products.

    It’s good to have a special price to pay for the future and it will pay you in return, in the exact way you would wish to be paid.

  7. ZLY WEISIOR on July 19, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Just the amount of knowledge about the tax system, general law and basic economics you need to start investing is a big barrier for the newcomers.
    Its not as simple as making one or two transfers and waiting for profit.
    This video is about just as it says "ideas" – simple, basic concepts without any tutorial. And its not a bad thing.
    Just to the people who expect easy money – without any knowledge you will surely only LOOSE money – education first.

    The only passive suggestion here was the stock market one.

  12. David on July 19, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Tip number 10. And probably the most crucial. Have an IQ a couple of standard deviations above the mean.

    Great stuff. I watch several youtube videos on how to trade in the stock market but haven’t made any headstart because they are either talking some gibberish of how they made it and I do not want to make mistakes by taking risks in my own hands.

    That was an interesting insight with the stars. <3

    you make $780,000/yr with zero work? Who needs more than that, why aren’t you on a beach?? Why waste time making more youtube videos? Geez!

  19. Wilfred Ngongson on July 19, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    You hit it straight on the head, money is a medium of exchange

  20. NEGAN_lQ on July 19, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    So you make the majority of that number just by recommending your classes, broadcast or videos to people to educate them about how you make it. This is one of the most profitable paradoxes in existence.

  21. Intbel on July 19, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    The stock,market is no more than a casino in which the house always wins.

    Like the content, but it’s misleading to say you make 27k per week when you instead most likely generate 27k per week in revenue. Make = Revenue – Expenses.

  25. off3nc3 on July 19, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I remember watching this dude like 4 years ago give or take when the ipad pro 11 inch came out , can’t believe he reached almost 2 mil subs and has so much views.. Nutty and incredibly lucky with the algorith i guess.

    There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. I pray that anyone reading this become successful in life.

    I remember a time when meat was purchased from a butcher and the butcher procured it directly from the farmer.
    Nowadays meat is sold mostly by chains, which are run by investors, whose sole purpose is profits.
    Not the best analogy, but you get the point. Millennials tend to be more social justice oriented I thought. Invest wisely and be aware of the ramifications of your actions. The 3 K/year average salary is part of the equation in the 50K yearly average being able to have disposable income to invest……vicious cycle and you get the point.

  29. Kason Porter on July 19, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    consistency is the key, i’ve been investing for months now and if i must be honest, i’ve made guite an impressive profit, most of those traders who offer to give you 500% of whatever you invest might scam you off your hand earned money.
