Anyone who has the luxury of multiple streams of income has effectively turned themselves from employee to entrepreneur. I'm not sure about you, but I classify this as success.

I could go on and on about how fantastic this sort of income is, but I doubt that's necessary. Of course you are aware of the freedoms this sort of income allows.

You're certainly more interested finding out HOW to build passive residual income streams. Let's take a quick look at a few prominent ways in which you can paid for work done in the past.

Books and Music?

In case you aren't quite sure what residual income streams are, let's consider the most notable and simplest example; an author. An author writes a given book one time.

Although he only technically produces one unique product, he will continue to earn money on each copy sold in the future. Products that can be easily duplicated often result in residual income streams. For example; recording artists also have this income luxury because their music can be sold infinitely.

There are in fact many other ways in which passive residual income streams can be built that do not require you to be a world-renowned artist or author. In fact, the internet has created a vast amount of residual income opportunities.
