Now more than ever, I believe it is important for musicians, artists and creatives of all types to have ways of earning income online. 

It’s also important that some of these income streams can be “passive.”

Passive is not about selling the myth of easy money for no work. There will be plenty involved. 

It is about setting yourself up with ways to generate a strong supplement, or even foundational income that is not a direct exchange of your time for money.

Where sales and commissions can be deposited into your account from material that exists online, without you having to manually deliver it to the customer. 

 The videos below are intended to give you an understanding of different approaches and strategies, with real world examples, of how you can set yourself up to do just that.  Everything in here is based on personal experience, and does not require you to be a household name, have 200,000 YouTube subscribers, or start a Patreon. There are many solutions that apply to many situations. 

Below the videos you will find links to some of the resources discussed and more, which can be updated as things change.
