I have to agree that "passive income" is kind of the wrong track. In the beginning there's always hard work and determination. Once you've passed the tests and challenges and still are going strong, then - and only then - can you talk of passive income. You deserve to lean back now. However dont let things rest on end...do check your autopilot every once in a while. Because you never know when the game changes. Typical scenarios of passive income after initial hard work would be writing a couple of bestsellers, a couple of hit songs, or building a website marketing empire.
