How I Earned $20,000 During My 2-Week Vacation (Crazy Passive Income Story!)

A few months ago, I took a fun trip to NYC to attend Marie Forleo's Everything Is Figureoutable book tour event.

It was my first time in the city (ever!), and I had a great time exploring. I pretty much spent the full week walking back and forth across the city, seeing as much as I could. 

(I definitely got my steps in!)

And Marie's event was a blast. ?

There was just one small problem…

I'd miscalculated when I'd scheduled the trip.

I was intending to schedule it for the week we were taking a company-wide work break.

But, instead, I booked it for the following week… ?

Which meant that I was going to have to do a tiny bit of work while on my trip (so my team was able to get back to work), and if I wanted a week completely OFF (which I definitely did!), then I was going to have two weeks in a row of almost zero productivity.

Because I don't know about you, but I can't get much of anything done while I travel — it's just too disruptive!

Since I really wanted to take a break, I decided to take the risk and take almost two weeks off of work.

And it was a risk! Traveling is already somewhat expensive, and even more so if it slashes your income.

So, when I arrived home and sat down for my much-delayed check-in meeting with Cortni, my right-hand woman, I was bracing myself for the bad news.

I was expecting things to be messy, profits to be down, and to be behind on all sorts of projects.

Imagine my surprise when, instead, I heard…

…that we'd earned almost $20,000 in the two weeks I'd been out of the office. ?

Sounds like they don't need me after all! ?

Seriously, my team is amazing. But… they weren't making sales while I was gone.


Systems and automations really do work!

Honestly, I used to think that “passive income” was a myth. And to some degree, maybe it is…

> you can't make something out of nothing.
> you can't make money without effort.
> and there's no such thing as get-rich-quick.

But, that doesn't mean there aren't easier ways to earn money. It doesn't mean that you can only earn while you work. And it definitely doesn't mean that you can't put in the effort to build systems that can generate sales and income without you.
