My Passive income source in 2017

Well, I do have a full time job but passive income rocks. Who does not love little bit of extra cash?

Passive income source

Here are few things I do, that do not require a lot of my time.

Mintvine – Take surveys and minimum payout is $10, I usually cash out using Paypal.

YouTube – Just activate your adsense, connect with YouTube and all you need to do is, create quality videos. But here is the thing, you need to get 10000 views on your videos before you can monetize your videos.

Steemit – This is a social platform, and without censoring, because it is on blockchain. You can earn steem and cash out for real $ or BTC.

Cross MEdia Panel – $3 every week just to let Google browse your browsing habit.

Crypto Currency – Yes, this is my best bet, Bitcoin. My best investment this year, you can join the ride too today, but bitcoin from coinbase.

Gold Money – This is one option to keep my money safe. I am not bullish on USD and that is why I buy gold online on goldmoney. If you are believer of gold check them out.

Sushi and Honey JD

Last night was quite a night, apart from the fact that I tried raw fish with chop sticks ( I do not know how I managed those sticks)there was something else.
I love to observe and absorb. Helps me get different perspective and a better understanding of regular stuffs. While we 7 were diving into the sushi platter, 3 other guys from work joined us. Well, they came from a bar and they needed something stronger than beer.
Being a lifetime sober I knew something exciting was waiting for me. It started with one guy buying drink to one woman in our group. And it ended with the woman getting absolutely drunk. Pretty usual story line. Now here is the thing, unfortunately I am always the ( unwilling) designated driver, in fact this is one reason I try to avoid parties, given that it was a monday night I was not really expecting this.

But what surprised me more was the guys, we work together, and after this woman got drunk, they started laughing at her. She was not moving, thank god there was another female team member who helped her to get into car. But, all these guys being in their 30s or mid 30s were behaving like they are back in college. I found it really surprising. I was bit pissed off with them in the beginning, I was trying to connect the dots, may be it was the alcohol that made them act like jerks,

But then, I thought about the behavior. Yea, after dropping the drunk girl home, it was time to put my critical thinking cap on. I wonder if we have really evolved as a society, we laugh at others miserable situation, we are often not responsible. And if I come out that one sushi bar and think about a bigger community, we are still fighting over land, silver, food and other resources like we used to do in middle ages. We think any outsider is a threat to our resources and safety.
Anyway, it is what it is, good thing is, we had Galileo, Tesla and all these great scientists. May be they did not know what they were doing for the society, may be we do not have enough understanding about their contribution. I guess, sometimes before you can do the right thing, it is important that you are proven wrong and you understand it.

I would really like to see more humanity on this planet. I do not know about you, but when I see people not even giving up there spots for pregnant ladies or someone old and who needs the seat, I feel like the humanity is disappearing from human race faster than those ice caps from face of earth.

American Dream

Today is the last day I can ever say I am 31 years old. To be honest only few hours left. Life is kind of strange at this moment, it is not about the age. In the year 2011 when I arrived in Sydney, my life changed.

In 2012 I moved to US, I can still remember, the GMC truck I saw near airport and I fell in love. Yeah, I kind of love cars, and I never saw such a big SUV before in my life. And then I just moved around, New Jersey, Mass, Delaware, Virginia, DC, SFO, Miami, Arizona and now I am back to Boston.

When I was moving to Boston, I was pretty tired of moving. I always hated 9 – 5 desk job, I saw my dad doing that his whole life. I wanted to travel the world. Few weeks back I was all set to leave Boston, I am tired of public transport, crowed trains and the weather sucks.

But things changed, well situation changed, and I am stuck in Boston at least more few more months. Past year was pretty interesting for me – Thankfully I did not take too many NYC to SFO flights ( I guess only 1) , I did not miss any flight. I moved from one apartment to another by myself, well of course my friend helped me with the furniture and truck, and this was my first time, probably I wanted to find out why these movers are so expensive.

I guess my main focus was my health and learning new technologies, well for believers in global warming, we have a good news, only 9 trillion USD can re-freeze the whole polar regions back again. I was kind of worried, and used to think if the whole polar cap could be transported to moon or somewhere . Turns out no need to do that.

After 6 years of being rolling a stone, I gathered no moss but gained some wisdom. If you think I have an interesting life, may be you should think again, every night when I come back to my apartment the first thing I reach for is youtube, yeah I have a really quite place, but it might not be fun. But I signed up for this, may be I did not think it through, when you want to get something, you must give up many things, now I know why they say ” wish carefully, your wish might come true”

Love

I am turning 32 in few days. Every year I go on a retrospection and try to figure out what did I do for one long year. Did I learn anything new? did I do something new? Did my life change for good or bad?

Every since I started working my world pretty much revolves around work, and some after more than a decade I am pretty sure this is not something what I wanted. Or may be did I?

I remember there was a time I was working more than 20 hrs a day, sometimes 23 hrs straight – I hated my life but still I never stopped working. I enjoyed the attention. First time I felt that people are noticing me and they think I am good for something. I think I was fighting the battle against myself, I was done being mediocre.

But recently I lack motivation, now that I rent my expensive apartment in Boston suburbs, I do not have enough motivation to move forward. I do not see a point in buying iphone or any expensive gadget for that matter. In fact I purchased my last phone in march 2016. I think this is first time I used one phone for a straight year.

It is really hard to admit that I think I am a failure, and admit that I did not want this life. And of course, may be I am typing these words here, because neither nobody knows me here nor would anyone care. I do not have a name or face here.

There are lot of things I am getting good at, and I really feel good about myself that I do more than most of my coworkers. I know what is going around in geo-political situation and I know how blockchain technology will take over the internet soon enough, I know how robots will serve me food in few years, but then I also know I suck at talking to another human being. Well, not talking, but connecting.

Things those are important to you, mostly are not that important to me anymore. Things change, time change, change is the only constant. The only thing grows with time is love. If we are not talking about that, may be we should not talk at all.

 


Scared?

When I was in high school I figured friends are temporary. How ? When my result came out to be “not that good” and my “so called” friends made fun of me I saw the competitors, not friends. Thankfully that was last day in high school.

In college, things were different. I just have one and only one thing in mind. I wanted to get a job. I had to prepare for that. I already knew friendship means much more that companionship. I invested most of my time in one thing, preparing myself to get the job I wanted.

Life takes it’s own course. But, I do not regret that I gave up “fun” in college, I got the return on my investment. I will make it sound like everything is from wall street, but your time, physical labor, thoughts all are investments. Even if you go to church or temple , you seek God, you make an investment. And end of the day if you “feel” that you did not find your God, your investment might have gone bad.

So my point is, my investment helped me good return. At work, I busted my every cell in my body. I gave up my weekends. My health, personal relationships. I got what I wanted, at least that’s what I thought.

In 2015 I was in Florida,one lady, kind of “attacked” me saying that I am stealing their jobs(along with whatever else she said). Yeah, of course, I am not from this country, but her statement made me wonder ” if all my hard work was worthless just because I am not from the country and work on work visa”.
Anyway, that was a challenge for me, I always think, if I am competent enough ” I will achieve what I want” . That day I decided I will never exchange my own passport with any other countries passport. One more thing, India does not allow dual citizenship .

We divert our resources per our priorities. because we want to achieve something over something else. That might be completing the final stage in your video game, you are investing your time in. Likewise, I have goals too. I invest my resources too. And I am scared, if I am making the right investment.

One might ask, do I know, what I want? Of course, more than you can imagine, I know where I want to be. But, I do not know how I am going to get there.

One always has choice. I am worried, if I am making the right choices. Life is chain reaction, you cannot go back in in time and fix something you did. So, it is important that we make right choices EVERYTIME.

Buy gold in America – use goldmoney to keep your wealth safe

This is high time to buy gold in America, as stock market is all time high and it is bound to fall. Increasing national debt does not pain a rosy picture for future either.

Gold is for ever, this is the best investment tool man has ever known of. This yellow metal has given decent average return over the years.

May be it does not go up in a rocket speed like stock market does. But whenever stock market fall and people look for a safe haven and they opt for gold.

This yellow metals past history speaks for itself. Gold is available in coin and ingot form. This is high time that buy gold bullion and silver, demand is increasing day by day. And prices are sure to go up. So don’t miss the rally get into it before it is over.

Buy gold in America but store it elsewhere safe –

There is one problem with physical gold bullion, that is storage, what if you get storage for your physical gold for free? Yes, gold money actually stores your gold for free. If you want your gold to be delivered to you, they will ship it to you from vault. Otherwise there are multiple vaults worldwide you can keep your gold in.

Gold is the best insurance for future uncertain times that is bound to come in future. Nobody can tell when, until central banks stops printing money the stock market will not stop going higher.

But even if they do not stop printing money, still the inflation is bound to go up and gold will be greatest hedge against inflation. So it is win win situation for gold investors, so do not wait, buy gold in America.
