A few weeks back I heard one of the best quotes I have heard in a long time. “If your money isn’t making money for you when you are sleeping, then you are doing something wrong.” This quote got me thinking about how many horizontal income streams I have.
What is a horizontal income stream? A horizontal income stream is a specific asset you are generating income from on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.

I have made large strides to put myself in a position to continue working my way to financial freedom. I have come a long way from only having one source of income, yet, I know I still have so much to learn from the community and getting my $$$ to make more $$$ for me.
