To get to the point where you can earn passive income is a lot of hard work. I think you have to do double the amount of work to get to that point and then you can "sit back"... so is it really all that "passive"?

Indeed, "passive" income usually requires a lot of upfront investment of time and/or money, and tends to require continued work to maintain or expand income levels. So it tends not to be very passive at all.

There is no passive income. Just like the laws of physics, there has to be equal input (of some sort) to the output. If you want to make a million bucks, you have to do a million bucks worth of planning and implementing.

I'm building a stream of passive income right now. The general misconception is that passive=easy. That is NOT the case at all.
