Passive income is one of the most searched topics on the web today.

 

Who doesn’t want to make money while they sleep?

 

The American dream for some is having the big house with the white picket fence, but for others it is making money while doing nothing.

 

You can do this through passive income.  Just be prepared to do the work up front because it does take some work to set it up.

 

I want to share how you can earn some passive income through dividend investing.

 

Just like any other form of passive income, this takes work on the front end and a little time to build.  

 

The first step is getting started.

When I was in college I absolutely hated writing papers.

 

The paper that I spent the most amount of time trying to write was my resume. It ended up being one page.

 

Anyone looking to hire me would have this one page to learn all about me and make a decision of whether or not to hire me.

 

Financial lenders have one document to look at to determine whether or not they want to lend you money. It is your credit report, which gives them the details of your credit score.

 

Today I am going to give you some tips on how to build up your credit score.

 

6:52 What affects your credit score?
11:04 Open a secured credit card account.
13:31 Credit builder loans
14:44 Credit building Apps
15:46 Review your credit report
17:23 Dispute any charges that are not yours

It is time for a vacation!  

 

If you aren’t going to an ‘all inclusive’ resort - figuring out where to stay can really be a hassle.

 

We have a hard time finding a place that will fit our family (4 kids) with enough space to ‘spread out’.

 

Maybe your vacation is a time to check out some potential investment properties.

 

A reader, Steve, sent in a question about potential investment properties that we are going to answer today.

 

 

Steve asks: My wife and I are in our mid-50’s, we are debt free and own our home. We would like to have a place that our family and kids can use while we explore future retirement areas near the vacation home.

 

05:56 The pros of buying a short-term rental.
07:08 Generating Income
10:22 Long-term capital appreciation
13:20 Great Tax Benefits
16:24 The Cons - Higher Down Payment/ Higher Interest Rate
17:33 Not all communities welcome short-term rentals
18:04 Bad renters/property damage
18:54 Not passive income

 

I encourage you to have detailed conversations with your significant other and your CPA before you purchase a vacation/short-term rental property.

It was 2001 and I was an intern at an investment firm - actually the brokerage firm that hired me to become a financial advisor.

 

I experienced, for the first time, what a stock market crash is.

 

Until you see how it affects people, you just don’t fully understand the stress, worry, and defeat that comes with it.

 

At that time, I thought that would probably be the worst crash I would see in my lifetime.

 

Then 2008 rolled around!

 

I decided to add some perspective to the current situation, I would share the top 10 crashes in history.

There was a time in high school, and I totally deserved it, where I got sent to the principals office.

 

Luckily I learned from my mistake and didn’t repeat it. Getting in trouble with your teacher and/or the school is not something I wanted to do again.

 

As an adult, I would say the equivalent to this would be if I were in trouble with the IRS. No one wants to do something that will get them in hot water with the IRS.


Today I want to share 5 mistakes that you want to avoid when filing taxes.

 

03:33 Forgetting paperwork
07:11 Missing or incorrect information
09:02 Don’t wait until the last minute
11:27 Choosing the incorrect filing status
12:41 Missing a tax break
