A couple years back, I had a fascinating conversation with a friend looking at property management. She was just getting started building a property portfolio to make a passive revenue stream. Before starting Latchel, I had build passive income businesses on Amazon’s platform, a little bit different than property investing, but we talked back and forth about how to start a passive income business. She wanted to know what milestones she should set for her own business for 5 years and 10 years down the road.
My response was not exactly what she anticipated.
She was approaching her business from the wrong mindset. When building a passive income business, I would not build my personal life around the businesses goals. Rather, I want to form my passive income streams around the life that I want to live.
