I have rented out my basement in the past and have been a ‘landlord-ess’.  In general, the tenants I had were pretty good and we collected $1200 a month for the basement suite.  It can be kind of fun if you are handy.  If you have a bad tenant though, things can get bad really quick.  You also can’t be too ‘nice’ or want to try and be your tenants’ ‘friend’ because otherwise, they may take advantage of your kindness.

This was my first foray into passive income.  Putting your money in a high-interest savings account is a great idea because it is safe and usually these are e-savings accounts so that they are a bit more difficult to access (e.g. you won’t be able to raid the ATM and withdraw all your savings to buy that pair of shoes you have been eyeing).  Which means that you’ll have less opportunity to meddle with your money, which means the money will be left untouched and left to grow with compound interest.

I’ve downloaded it and have had it for just over a year and my payout (by cheque, mailed to my home) has been $46.85.  The cheque comes very promptly.  I’d say it’s pretty passive.  In fact, I actually like going through my grocery receipts to check out if there’s anything I can claim with Checkout 51.  I know $46.85 is nothing to write home about but it’s still better than $0!!

The first passive income idea on this list does take some start-up cash, but it absolutely helps me earn more than $1,000 per month. Dividend-paying stocks, ETFs, and other investments like Fundrise and Lending Club are helping me earn money around the clock – and all with no work on my part. While the amounts I have invested in these accounts vary, they’re all paying me more than $1,000 per month.

When you record a loss on a passive activity, only passive activity profits can have their deductions offset instead of the income as a whole. It would be prudent to ensure that all your passive activities were classified that way, in order to make the most of the tax deduction. These deductions are allocated for the next tax year and are applied in a reasonable manner that takes into account the next year’s earnings or losses.

Participate in royalty-based venture financing. In traditional venture financing, an investor buys a stake in a company to provide growth capital to its founders. This investor is then entitled to a percentage of the gains experienced when a company is bought or has an initial public offering. However, there is another kind of venture financing where an investor can invest start-up capital in exchange for regular royalty payments that are based on the company's revenue. This doesn't give the investor any ownership in the company, but does guarantee regular payouts (assuming the company survives).
I have done everything on this list except for invest through Robo-Advisors, and there are a few on this list that have a soft spot in my heart (because I consider them absolutely effortless) and a few that I feel required a little more effort than the term ‘passive income’ allows for.  Nonetheless, whether it is passive or not really that passive, these are the best ways to earn money without spending 8 hours a day earning the money, know what I mean?

Vanguard: Vanguard has a minimum of $50,000 and a fee of 0.3%. Rebalancing is done automatically once every quarter and tax loss harvesting is done on a client-by-client basis. We included Vanguard because clients who invest between $50,000-$500,000 have access to a team of financial advisors. Those with accounts over $500,000 will have a dedicated advisor.
I have only dabbled in drop-shipping before when I had an eCommerce platform 6 years ago or so. I think it is something that you could do on the side, but you would want to do in depth research on the industry you want to get into before setting up shop. It may be a little less passive up front, but over time you could take your hands off the wheel.

But, it took me a while to get to that point. Where I once worked in my financial planning office on most days, I started by testing things out with a few days per month away from the office at first. From there, I began working remotely 2-3 days per week, then 4-5 days per week, and so on. Eventually, I was able to run my business remotely without ever having to show up for work.
