Publisher's Summary

Cut through the scams and false promises in income strategies and investing books!

You've seen the investing book titles. They start with, "How to Make Money" and end with some ridiculous promise of a six-figure income or the words, "from home".

Search for "How to make money with passive income" in Google and you're blasted by more than seven million results. You can practically hear the swindlers screaming out at you from the screen.

Making money on your investments is a powerful draw and ripe for all kinds of scams, scoundrels, and shysters.

But in the fiction, there's a little truth to be found. The truth that more than a few people have built massive success stories through the four most popular investing strategies. The truth that many of the strategies can be started in your spare time and require little cash to get started.

This book is about that truth.

How to Make Money from Four Income Strategies

The Passive Income Myth is your opportunity to cut through the BS and scams to see how to make money in four passive income strategies. Over more than two decades as an investor and an investment analyst, I have made money in each of the four investing strategies. Knowing what I have picked up over the last 20 years will save you years of time and will keep you from making the biggest mistakes in passive income investments.

Each income strategy can be listened to separately or as a part of a complete wealth management system to make money and put together true passive investing income potential.

Difficult to pay attention to

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Overall I think there is useful information here. I bought it from kindle so luckily I have a hard copy I can read and pick what I need out. But listening is a chore. The guy is constantly stammering and pausing and I had to stop because it was so distracting.

Simplified investment options

The author simplifies the complexities of understanding passive investment income options with risk and benefits associated. In a clear voice and steps (I love it when the author narrates their own audio!), helps you kick start or re-examine options that fit, and do not fit, your short term and long term needs. Great job Joseph Hogue! Thank you!!

Very helpful in the passive income world.

This is a really good title in the works of passive income. I have been working on developing a more passive income base lifestyle and this book really helped that. It is helpful in the fact that it covers the myths and assumptions that are connected to passive income. Very honest information in here and I wish I would have read it a little sooner.

Not Worth It

The performance was the worst I've ever heard in an Audible book, and I've listened to countless books. The author misspoke by stating a word wrong and then correcting himself nearly every 3-4 sentences. He also paused way too often and for large amounts of time, as some other reviewers mentioned. It's as if he read the book in one sitting and purposely chose not to make any edits or re-do any parts. As for the content, as an investment professional with a similar background to the author's, I expected some good things, but I was quite disappointed. The book features extremely basic, intro-level information and some of it isn't even accurate. Examples of this are that dividend-paying stocks aren't risky, or that you can pick stocks with a basic finance background and only do a quick annual review of the companies' financials. I've never met anyone in finance who agrees with these thoughts. I was most interested in the real estate section, and that was also very lacking. The blog section was decent, as I knew nothing about it, but that's about it.

Solid Content

This book has solid information that will be valuable for someone considering passive income. There is simply too much additional info on each topic for one book. With that in kind, additional resources will be necessary for a deeper dive.

Does a good job, worth the price

The content is very well laid out and gives a great BASIC understanding and overview of passive income investing. Well worth the low price.

Narrator is really good with a few hiccups and mistakes here and there.
