Throughout the history of mankind, we have seen different stages of social and economic evolution. Each stage has yielded advancements far beyond what any human of the past could have ever imagined.

Dating back 2 million years ago was the Hunter-Gatherer Age where primitive hominins relied on nature to exclusively provide wealth. These nomadic tribes of people would travel to locations where the hunting was abundant, and the vegetation was plentiful. To survive, an individual must know how to hunt and gather – or you could not feed yourself.  For this Hunter-Gatherer class of humans, the tribe was the only social security.

Roughly 10,000 years ago technological advancements in working the land allowed humans the ability to produce food through agriculture. This rise in classes was known as the Agrarian Age. Due to these advancements in technology to plant and cultivate the land, those who owned the land and rode horses became royalty while those who worked the land and walked became peasants.

In 1492 Christopher Columbus set out to the New World for the purpose of finding new resources such as oil, copper, tin, rubber, and many others. This eventually led to the rise of factories and mass production of goods and services in the 1800’s. The period of discovering new resources and mass-producing goods and services was the Industrial Age. It was during this time that land no longer provided crops, but provided resources, which led to the land becoming much more valuable.

Today, we are in the Information Age where access to any type of information is easily accessible at the touch of a finger on a smart phone. The world wide web has allowed us the benefit of communicating and conducting business with anybody in the world, at any time in the day. The expense of growing extremely wealthy has decreased substantially.

In fact, growing wealthy through building an online marketing business has become a popular profession today.

Which leads us to beg the question – what is the best online marketing business?

There are many ways to make money online with an online marketing business, let us examine them.

Sell a Product


The easiest way to get started with an online business is through selling a product that you already own.

Consider having a virtual garage sale!

In fact, my very first online sale consisted of placing a photo and description of a snowboard on Craigslist, communicating with a buyer, and then meeting to exchange the snowboard for cash.

Boom!

If you are in the business of producing and selling products you may want to use a more professional and sophisticated platform such as Amazon.

There are many other directions you could go and the online marketplace for products is massive.

Sell a Service


Another way to begin with an online business is through selling a service in which you are a professional.

Freelancer!

This is truly one of the best ways to build an online business because it can allow you to create a passive income lifestyle.

You do not have to be physically present in any one location – travel freedom!

If you have a skill set in design, digital marketing, writing, video, music, programming, etc. check out Fiverr – this platform is geared towards short-term business relationships.

If your skill set is geared more towards building long-term business relationships in development, sales, customer support, finance, accounting, etc. check out Upwork.

These are both excellent websites to market yourself and build a customer base.

Amazon FBA

If you are savvy with Amazon you can build an online business with Fulfillment by Amazon – FBA.

Think of flipping hot selling items with Amazon.

This process allows you to utilize Amazon’s numerous huge warehouses to store and ship products you sell through the Amazon website.

Amazon FBA is a great way for you to realize the huge benefit of economies of scale with Amazon’s resources.

In most cases customers are completely unaware that they are making a purchase from a 3rd part seller using Amazon FBA.

Affiliate Marketing


By far the best way to build an online business is through affiliate marketing.

I personally prefer affiliate marketing because there is no need to create your own product or service, you can easily become an expert in any given niche market through research, and the costs attached to initial start-up and recurring operating expenses are extremely low.

You will be amazed with the results when you are adequately equipped with the knowledge of building out an authority website that consistently drives traffic through your unique content creation.

I am a member of a community called Wealth Affiliate where I have learned how to do just what I described above.

Even if you are a complete novice the training is simplified – complete with countless videos, tutorial training, live classrooms, and in-depth courses. The community consists of over 900k members who offer live and interactive help 24/7.

And, you can build out your first website with hosting completely for free.

I have not had a bad experience with Wealthy Affiliate – true professionals!

Assess Your Risks


As the world re-emerges from the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic I think now, more than ever, mankind is forced to reassess the major risks to livelihood.

Is it safe to rely on mainstream media for guidance? Is it safe to rely on governments for safety? Is it safe to rely on our employers for income?

I have always been a fan of building a passive income lifestyle to mitigate these certain risks – it doesn’t matter where I go in the world with this lifestyle!

Building an online marketing business is the first step in a passive income lifestyle.

How to Earn Passive Income Online and Pay Less Tax

How to Earn Passive Income Online and Pay Less Tax - Featured Image

2/25/2021

Reno, Nevada

In 1928 Evelyn Gregory was the 100% owner of United Mortgage Company. United Mortgage Company owned 1,000 shares of a Monitor Securities Corporation. To comply with the law of a tax-free corporate reorganization, Gregory created Averill Corp, transferred the 1,000 shares into Averill, dissolved Averill, distributed and sold the 1,000 shares for roughly $133,333 while avoiding $10,000 in tax.

Brilliant – in my opinion!

To the contrary, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, Guy T. Helvering argued that there was no business reorganization and that Gregory had simply used legal forms to understate her tax liability by $10,000.

In 1932, upon review, the Board of Tax Appeals initially ruled in favor of Gregory allowing the tax-free organization.

Interesting precedent!

In 1935, to Gregory’s dismay, both appellate courts of the Second Circuit and Supreme Court ruled Gregory v. Helvering
in favor of Helvering the IRS Commissioner.

Judge Learned Hand of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, however, did make the following statement: “…a transaction… does not lose it’s immunity because it is actuated by a desire to avoid or evade taxation. Anyone may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose the pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes.”

I agree with Judge Hand – there is no reason to pay more tax than what we are legally obligated, and there are many tax strategies that we can use to make this happen.

That is why it’s important to learn how to earn passive income online and pay less tax – because it’s not about how much you make, it’s about how much you keep!

3 Types of Income


how to earn passive income and pay less tax - courthouse

Before you can begin to deploy any type of tax strategy it’s important to understand the 3 different types of income that the IRS recognizes. This is an especially important step in the process because each of these different types of income is taxed differently.

The 3 types of income are:

Earned

Portfolio

Passive

Earned income is income that is produced in your normal day-to-day activities such as your job, W-2 wages, salaries, tips, small business, 1099 commissions, consulting, products, and many others. It is important to remember that the the production of earned income requires a substantial amount of participation from the individual – commonly referred to as “material participation”.

Portfolio income is income that is produced outside of your normal day-to-day activities and is not created through your normal business activity such as interest, dividends, and capital gains.

Passive income is income that is produced from an investment such as a rental property or a limited partnership in which you do not materially participate. According to the IRS, there are only two different kinds of passive income:

Net rental income from real estate or equipment.

Business income in which you do not materially participate.

Passive income does not require a substantial amount of participation from the individual.

How Each Type of Income is Taxed


Earned income is the highest taxed form of income and subject to an additional 15.3% of SE tax. If you are a W-2 employee, you are extremely limited in nature to the amount of tax deductions that are allowable. If you have a small business the taxability of the income is the same as a W-2 employee, however, you have many more tax deductions.

Portfolio income is generally taxed lower than earned income. There are many factors involved such as filing status, tax bracket, the amount of time the investment held, etc. There are very few tax deductions that are involved with portfolio income.

Passive income is the lowest taxed form of income with the most amount of tax deductions.

Thus, you can see why it’s important to have a good base-camp understanding of the 3 types of income and how they are each taxed.

Earn Passive Income Online


As I’ve mentioned before, there are many benefits to aligning yourself with the future of technology and building an online business. There are literally 100’s of ways to make money online, but I personally believe that focusing on affiliate marketing is the best choice. Through researching a profitable niche, learning how to build a website, and maximizing traffic through providing keyword rich content you can build a passive income stream.

There are many niche markets in which you can profit, and the cool part is that you don’t have to be an immediate expert in that certain field. Realistically, all that it takes is a desire to grow and learn, you will soon become well-versed in your niche market.

Technology advancements today have allowed just about anybody with a pulse to build a website. The business start-up cost to build a website is by far the lowest start-up cost that exists in any industry. For less than $100 you can get a domain name, hosting, plugins, support, and many other features that go into building a website. In fact there is a free start-up option, I would suggest checking out a company named Wealthy Affiliate.

Generating traffic to your website can be accomplished through keyword research and quality content creation. The keyword research is vital in determining how to drive traffic to your website. I have found a company called Jaaxy is by far the best at giving you the information that you will need to accomplish this task. After you have pieced together an amazing piece of content you can convey the piece with a blog, video, or podcast.

Over time, the more content you create, the more traffic you will generate which opens the doors for many ways to provide value to your visitors and monetize the flow.

Pay Less Tax with an Online Business


Yes! Building an online business does mean creating passive income that continues to pay dividends into the future. For tax purposes, however, there is nothing passive about building any type of business. If you are creating the income stream and working in the business daily, thus, you are materially participating in the business.

For this reason, an online business would be classified as earned income which subject to the highest tax rates.

how to earn passive income and pay less tax - online business

The tax strategy to use with an earned income business is by incorporating the business into an S-Corp, or, an LLC taxed as an S-Corp. When you utilize the S-Corp strategy correctly you can forego paying the additional 15.3% SE tax on the profits of the business.

For example, if your business profits $100,000 in a single year, you would essentially save $15,300 in tax with an S-Corp.

Such a profound strategy!

With the favorable tax treatment, however, the IRS does require additional regulations.  You will only be able to take advantage of the S-Corp strategy as of the day of incorporation moving forward. In addition, corporate officers are also considered employees in which a reasonable salary will have to be setup to take the first monies out of the business.

The good news though is that after the reasonable salary is paid, the owner can distribute the remaining profits of the business with a tax-free distribution.

If you desire a true passive income lifestyle, building an online business through affiliate marketing is a great way to accomplish this goal. As you begin to earn more, however, there will be tax consequences.

That’s why it’s important to learn how to earn passive income online and pay less in tax because the S-Corp strategy can save you a ton of tax!

The Best Passive Income Ideas in 2021

Best Passive Income Ideas - Featured Image

2/18/2021

Seattle, Washington

As we turn the page into the 2021 new year, I could not help but to notice the various references on social media directed at the end of the 2020 year.

“2020 is in the past”, “So happy 2020 is finally over”, and “Goodbye to 2020, hello to 2021”, etc.

2020 was a year in which mankind will remember for eternity. A global pandemic, social unrest, Antifa protests, black lives matter, socialist reforms, presidential election, and the storming of the US capital.  

The rise of the Chinese economy, potential war with Iran, natural resources in the middle east, and a war on drugs brewing in South American countries can also be added to the list.

It saddens me that there is so much divide in our world today.

Unfortunately, I think we have only seen the tip of the iceberg, and to blindly say “So happy 2020 is finally over” is completely unrealistic and irrational.

As if the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 will magically make all the bad disappear.

best passive income ideas - 2020 meme

Humanity has been completely stunned and caught off guard by the multitude of worldwide events that happened in the 2020 year. In addition, the long-term consequences personally, emotionally, politically, and economically have not been afforded enough time to fully run their course.

The cool deal about being a rational human being is that we have the power of choice. And, if you are reading this article my guess is that you are a person who is ready to face these facts head on and examine your choices.

Building a passive income stream that generates cashflow regardless of uncertain economic times can be a gamechanger. That’s why I want to introduce you to the best passive income ideas in 2021 so that “Goodbye to 2020, hello to 2021” could have a different meaning altogether.

The Ugly Truth Behind Today’s Jobs Market


The U.S. economy has recovered more than 12 million jobs since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic but is still a long way away from what the Federal Reserve would deem “peak employment” levels.

There still exists a myriad number of issues facing workers today and the pace of job creation has slowed considerably. Unfavorably, the rule of thumb goes that the longer a person is out of a job, the longer it takes them to find a new one.

Though the unemployment rate has fallen from its 2020 high of 14.8% to currently at 6.3%, nonfarm payrolls increased by a meager 49,000 jobs in January 2021 but fell by an astonishing 227,000 in December 2020. More than 10 million workers are still without jobs today – 4.4 million higher than before the pandemic.

In April 2020 initial jobless claims reached an all-time high of 6.6 million. Since that record high claims have trickled in just under 1 million per week – The highest the weekly jobless claims has ever been was 653k which was set back in 2009.

Misclassification errors have skewed the Labor Department’s numbers since the pandemic began back in March – the unemployment rate today should be much closer to 10%.

Many lives have been negatively affected causing feelings of fear, insecurity, and various unknowns about personal finance as a result in the recent change in the jobs market.

Why You May Be Stressed


According to PwC’s “2016 Employee Financial Wellness Survey”, as reported by U.S. News & World Report, “Among U.S. employees, 52% reported feeling stressed about their jobs and finances… among them, 28% reported that financial stress had impacted their health.”

Why does this happen?

Since we were kids growing up if we did not live in a household that taught financial education we would not even know better. How many of us were taught to go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a high-paying job, etc.?

Does that model really work?

According to the metrics outlined above, being an employee, whether high-paid or not, is a precarious position to be in if you want to build wealth, or even survive in today’s market.

As an employee you may be stressed because you literally have no control over your financial future, even if you feel the company you work for is making the wrong decisions. When you effectively sell your time, you may begin to start forming a money stress depression.

And, If you are not working – or are not able to work – you do not get paid!

This presents a real challenge if you become sick or injured, especially if you have no safety net or different source of income, especially passive income.

I can see the look of panic in people’s eyes when I go about my business during the day.

Best Passive Income Ideas


best passive income ideas - make money while sleeping

Passive income can be defined as “income that requires little to no effort to earn and maintain…”

Do not be confused, it’s not easy! There is more effort on the front end, but less on back end.

Initially, it will take a lot of hard work, dedication, and commitment on your part. It will mean sacrificing television, video games, or other leisure activities. I will promise you, however, after you have worked your butt off to create your very first passive income stream that pumps money into your bank account 24/7, you will be hooked.

As a successful entrepreneur I have multiple sources of passive income coming in 24 hours a day 7 days a week! Even if I am spending time with loved ones, surfing, traveling, or sleeping, I am still generating passive income.

That is true financial security, no stress!

In general, income is derived from business, real estate, and the stock market. Passive income is merely utilizing one of these sources to employ a certain strategy that makes it passive in nature.

In business you can build an online marketing business using the power of Google and the world wide web. By choosing a niche, building a website, and attracting visitors, you can build a passive income stream through affiliate marketing.

With real estate you can negotiate a long-term lease with 4+ bedroom single family home and sublet individual bedrooms to traveling professionals on Airbnb. This strategy provides a low barrier entry to control a property, design an automated business system, and build a passive income stream through Airbnb arbitrage.

Through the stock market you can invest and trade an industry, country, commodity, etc. in which you are bullish or bearish. With stocks, ETF’s, reverse ETF’s, leveraged ETF’s, and options you can build a passive income stream by investing in the financial markets.

The Future of Business


If the thought of building passive income streams brings forth excitement this article is for you -Start thinking outside of the box!

Today, we are in the Information Age, where information is leveraged by technology and inexpensive resources like silicon that produce wealth. The price of getting wealthy has substantially decreased allowing a new class of super-rich.

In classrooms across the world the internet is readily available, and technology is second nature to most kids. For the first time in history, people can access information and learn about anything regardless of sex, race, religion, socio-economic status, and even geographic location. Information is free and abundant.

The world wide web has opened the door to endless opportunities, especially in business.

With the simple click of a mouse millions of dollars can be moved from one end of the world to the other, while delivery of anything can be made to your doorsteps the very next day.

Thus, it makes sense to align your business with the innovation of these internet technologies – Building an online business is the easy way to do this!

Building an Online Business through Affiliate Marketing


There are many different ways to build an online business, but let me give you a quick tip – Affiliate marketing is the easiest, hands down!

Affiliate marketing is a form of internet marketing in which you get paid a commission for driving buyers to a certain seller’s website to purchase a specific item. It may sound complicated, but it’s really simple.

Choose a niche market, build a website, attract visitors, and earn revenue!

best passive income ideas - affiliate marketing

Today, I choose educate myself with financial education that teaches me how to do things such as build an affiliate marketing business. I literally knew nothing about affiliate marketing and have successfully built a passive income stream using a company called Wealthy Affiliate.

But as rational human beings we have choices. As we move into 2021, make the choice to make this a new year of less stress by securing your finances.

The Best Passive Income Ideas in 2021 - Signature

Now It’s A Time For A Change To Creative Thinking

Now It’s A Time For A Change - Featured Image

9/21/2020

Snoqualmie, Washington

In 1899 a man named Charles H. Baker built the first underground hydroelectric power plant just at the bottom of Snoqualmie Falls in Washington State.

Unemployed and ravaged by the Panic of 1893, Baker, an engineer for the Seattle Lake Shore and Eastern Railways, wanted to exploit the drop in elevation of the falls for the purpose of producing energy. During these very tough economic times he managed to build the first completely underground hydroelectric power plant in the world.

Harnessing the velocity of the elevation drop and water current to produce electricity!

Such a novel concept! Such a triumph against all odds!

I cannot help but notice the parallels between Baker’s thinking of the past, and the Digital Investor ethos of today because now it’s a time for a change to creative thinking.

Thinking creatively and thinking outside of the box has a history of repeated success, that is a fact.

PANIC OF 1893


During the 1870’s – 1880’s the United States had undergone a vast economic growth and expansion due to higher than normal commodity prices.

However, as with every economic boom there is always an economic bust. Thus, economic problems began to present themselves.

now it's a time for a change

The Argentina wheat crop failure and coup in Buenos Aires abruptly ended any further investment in this market due to a crash in wheat prices.

Speculations in real estate collapsed in South Africa and Australia.

Uncertain about the future, European investors began a run on gold that was stored with the U.S. Treasury.

The result of the panic was shockingly unprecedented and would yield serious economic consequences.

Prices in the stock market declined.

500 banks were permanently closed.

15,000 businesses were shut down, never to open their doors again.

The unemployment rate hit as high as 43% in Michigan, 35% in New York, and 25% in Pennsylvania. 

The Panic of 1893 had caused a full-blown economic crisis within the United States of America and citizens had grown increasingly doubtful of any type of recovery.

CHANGE TO CREATIVE THINKING


During his employment years as an engineer, Charles H. Baker would routinely pass by Snoqualmie Falls. He imagined If there was a way to utilize the raw energy of the drop in elevation that the falls produced and he set out on a mission to expose it. 

When Baker lost his employment because of the Panic of 1893, he pitched the idea to his father, William T. Baker, to acquire the falls and surrounding lands.

Although the project may have seemed to be cumbersome, it proved to be rather simple to a highly skilled engineer such as Charles H. Baker.

First, a cofferdam intake was built to seal off the left bank of the falls to be used to block the water intake. Heavy-duty steam-powered drills were used to bore a vertical shaft from the intake to the cavern. A horizontal tunnel was also constructed which met the vertical shaft at the cavern.

The water from this shafting system was fed into four large Pelton turbines with 1.5 MW Westinghouse generators. One single generator produced enough energy to power several city blocks.  

The generators were online and began to transmit power to both Tacoma and Seattle by July 31, 1899.

CURRENT USE


In 1903 the Seattle Electric acquired Snoqualmie Falls Power Company. That same year Charles H. Baker’s lost his stake in the deal when his father William died, and he experienced financial difficulties.

It was the end of the road for Charles H. Baker, but not the end of the road for his idea.

By 1957 a second plant had been fully operational and upgraded to include a penstock system which flowed to three additional Francis-turbine generators.

In 2013 the plant and surrounding land were both upgraded and renovated to produce 54 megawatts of energy and promote recreational tourism with the Snoqualmie-Baker area. The hydroelectric power plant now has the generating capacity to power approximately 35,000+ homes.

After several business consolidations, Seattle Electric Company became Puget Sound Energy which now has full control of plant and generates approximately 32% of their energy through various hydroelectric sources.

Hard to believe that the succession of such a project began with one man’s willingness to simply change his thinking.

ECONOMY TODAY


it's a time for a change - jobs

In March 2020, President Trump was touting the “best economy ever” and “record-low unemployment” when it was hovering around 3.5%.  By April, the US has lost over 20.5 million jobs. The preceding 10 years jobs market had expanded by roughly 20.2 million jobs. 

More than a decade of job gains erased in the month of April.

Last Thursday the Department of Labor announced the latest U.S. initial jobless claims at a whopping 860,000 per week. Although new jobless claims are well below the March anomaly of 7,000,000 per week, they remain to be historically higher than the pre-pandemic levels of 200,000 per week.

On Friday the official unemployment rate stood at a whopping 8.4%. The US has not seen unemployment rates this high since The Great Depression in 1939.

Now, I understand, nobody could have forecasted a global pandemic of this proportion. And, it’s truly sad seeing the number of infected and deaths mounting around the world. In addition, many will be returning to work once the quarantine is lifted and stay-at-home orders are relinquished.

But, many will not. 

There are many businesses that are closing their doors permanently and I don’t think life will be returning to normal in the foreseeable future.  We are living during unprecedented times, in which, I genuinely believe that any scenario is possible.

TIME FOR A CHANGE


Just the same as Charles H. Baker changed in the past, now it’s a time for a change for many.

There are innovative ways for you to prepare yourself, regardless of any economic condition. And they make sense regardless of any type of outcome.

Through mastering the areas of education, finance, simulation, income, and travel you can turn innovative ideas into real-life examples, just like Charles H. Baker. The creation of passive income with an online business is very powerful.

In fact, I highly suggest building an affiliate marketing business. I used a platform Wealthy Affiliate to build a high traffic website in less than one year without knowing anything about the space before I started.

How to Create a Passive Income Lifestyle

How to Create a Passive Income Lifestyle - Featured Image

8/18/2020

Seattle, Washington

We are living during unprecedented times.

On the political front of global finance and economics radical measures are being taken daily. Central banks are injecting massive amounts of liquidity into the system. Balance sheets are ballooning out of control. Deficit spending is at an all-time high. Political turmoil continues to create confusion, and social unrest is unraveling at lightning speed.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 global pandemic has caused worldwide business shutdown. Employees are being fired, laid-off, and furloughed by the millions, while unemployment claims continue to grow exponentially by the week. Pensions and retirement accounts are woefully underfunded. Corporations and consumers have over-leveraged themselves because of low interest rate policies over the last decade. And, the sentiment of the consumerism ideology has waged a wildfire of unhappiness and discontent upon the psyche of the human race.

On the surface, it may not look bad, however, the world is changing dramatically right before our eyes. I would argue that the future looks all but bleak for those without the proper education, skill set, and geographical location.

American culture, led by politicians, corporations, and media, has programmed our brains to develop a certain status quo of societal norms. Although this life course may appeal to the masses for many purposes, I do not believe our God-given human experience was designed for this purpose.

This purpose has led me on a life-long journey to re-direct my truth, re-evaluate my core beliefs, and re-design my lifestyle that better suits the lifestyle freedom I choose to live.

I have re-programmed my brain to create a passive income lifestyle.

Human beings are all given the power of choice and the same amount of time. When we combine the power of choice and time, we can choose to walk a different path with amazing results.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO CREATE A PASSIVE INCOME LIFESTYLE?


Imagine a lifestyle filled with freedom, content, and travel.

Lifestyle, in my opinion, is the true measure of wealth and happiness.

At Digital Investor we provide quality content and education so that you can create a passive income lifestyle by focusing on 5 key areas.

Education

Finance

Simulation

Income

Travel

An open mindset will be required.

And, when you begin to achieve success as a result of the Digital Investor ethos your life will be changed forever.

However, before you can achieve success towards a purposeful life, it’s important to have a “why” statement. I can tell you from experience if you interested only in the money, you are living an empty life.

Your “why” statement should come from a deeper place of purpose.

Take action and create your “why” statement. ”I will _________, so that I can _________.”

Example: I will create passive income, so that I can have lifestyle freedom.

EDUCATION


Focus your time and energy on the right type of education.

passive income lifestyle

There are two different types of education in the world. Academic education and financial education. It is important to understand the difference between the two types of education if you want to build a passive income lifestyle.

Academic education is what we learn in public schools, colleges, universities, etc. The curriculum designed around this type of education is highly theoretical in nature. This education molds us to go to school, get good grades, find a good job, have good credit, buy a good car, get financial advice, acquire a personal residence, etc. Essentially, we get stuck in the never-ending cycle of debt and work.

Financial education is taught outside the walls of academic education. This type of education is focused on building business, acquiring real estate, and investing in the stock market. This is the education that teaches us real-world skill sets that can be applied to achieve lifestyle freedom.

The Digital Investor way is to provide financial education that focuses on these key topics of building an online business, acquiring real estate, investing in the stock market, speculating with cryptocurrency, and many other topics.

Take action and read Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! the #1 personal finance book of all time.

FINANCE


Understand and take control of your finances.

Basic knowledge of your finances include setting up a charitable contribution plan, debt freedom, creating a savings, diversifying your savings, hedging risk with insurance, maintaining health with healthcare, investing for retirement, legacy planning, tax strategy, building personal/ corporate credit, forming strategic partnerships, structuring creative financing, and many more.

These are important aspects that must be mastered to give us security behind our freedom.

Learn to translate the numbers by creating a budget where we can track and compare. This will serve as a key piece to pulling everything together and tracking our results.

How to Create a Passive Income Lifestyle - Signature

About Justin

About Justin - Featured Image

My name is Justin and I would like to welcome you to my website mydigitalinvestor.com, I am a digital nomad entrepreneur who has traveled and lived abroad in 25+ countries all over the world. I am a firm believer in creating a passive income lifestyle. Lifestyle, in my opinion, is the true measure of happiness and wealth.

Background


A graduate from the University of Washington, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics, I am a non-practicing CPA, and I have been building online business, acquiring real estate, and investing in the stock market from a young age. The passion, knowledge, and experience of a digital nomad entrepreneur runs deep within my soul.

Digital nomads are tech-savvy entrepreneurs who make their money in the cloud through utilizing highly effective technologies.  More generally, they conduct their life while traveling nomadically. These types of entrepreneurs can work remotely from any location in the world.

Why


From a young age I was fortunate enough to have a supportive father that encouraged travel. I remember countless trips all over the US, Canada, and Mexico during my growing up years. My father loved to travel, and I’ve been blessed in many ways from his influence.

Throughout my trips abroad I have met the most interesting people, witnessed the most breath-taking vistas, and consumed the most delicious foods. Life is but a glimpse, and I believe that it should be lived as an adventure. The only problem is that I would need to generate enough passive income to permanently live this lifestyle.

The path to prosperity and freedom lies within the ability to think independently and create solutions that lie outside of the box.

I am a firm believer in thinking differently and challenging the status quo. The way I can challenge the status quo is through the adoption of a lifestyle dedicated to continuing financial education, practice through simulation, and real-world execution.

Thus, began the process of developing a system that allowed me to create passive income from anywhere in the world. Combined with a strong passion to educate, Digital Investor was developed.

Goals


This website was developed for the purpose of education and collaboration with like-minded digital nomad entrepreneurs, investors, travelers, or any other individuals, I do not discriminate. I will provide content on this website that will serve as a guide to those who are also seeking lifestyle freedom.
