This video comes from Gary’s 2017 keynote in Copenhagen. Watch the full keynote on his main channel here:

There needs to be a serious talk around the concept of passive income. If you think there is a special way to just have money flood into your bank account while you sit on a beach and do nothing, you are very mistaken. Nobody you know that is making passive income didn’t grind for years and years before they were making enough “passive income” to live comfortably.

Working hard is the only option and working smart 💪🤓

Keelan Tatarliov says:

I don’t really believe in “passive income”. For example, my YouTube videos take HOURS to write, direct, produce, and edit. Not to mention the social media stuff you have to do along with it. It’s work. I generally enjoy the process and know my hard work will pay off. Happiness is loving what you do not how much you make 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Blossom Media Studio says:

Amen to calling out bullshit on Instagram courses and ebooks that are full of deeply depressed individuals – lying to the public about their success – as well as their true intentions. 🙏🏾

I’ve felt this void of “why – am I not able to get the followers or growth on social media if my intentions are sound?” It’s because of what you just said Gary, 7 years – 10 years – keep chipping away and maybe you’ll get something… or save that money and put it into the stock market ( which is defiantly going down to invest in ) or save for a down payment on a multi unit home! ( still difficult to get but possible )

Thank You Gary!

That’s beautifully said 💖💚💚💚💚💚

Alex Cio says:

people who think they don't want to work anymore never really discovered what they love to do. If you discovered these things, you will never want to stop again! 🙂

William Judy says:

Passive income can exist in the form of working hard to build something, then put it out for sell on a specific marketplace.

But in the end, everything involves working hard to create a sort of passive income business.

Mahmud Ahsan says:

Exactly very well said. Well generating passive income is not easy, you have to work hard to create your own business while you are continuing your job. I started my career as a web developer 9 to 5 job. When I had come home, I learned something new and started freelancing during 2008 to 2010. When making iPhone apps become hit over time during those era, I started to learning iPhone apps development while working the day job. Then once some of my iPhone apps started earning I quit my day job, and work so hard even some days 16 hours to learn and produce something more creative. Over time, my business become so good. For last 8 years, I have been working from my home, no office, living by my passive income. For me passive income, doesn't mean no work, it means you work when you really want to work. This is my website with my developed apps as a proof.

“Not having to work all day long!”
“Are you being serious right now?”

Passive income = Lazy people believe that passive income would make you rich overnight.

Let's Go Scoutside says:

He is 100% correct about the buying courses angle. They all sell the same information, re-worded to sound unique and special. You can find everything you need to know online for free, and through trial and error. It should never cost you $2,000 to discover that SEO is important.

Mari Lesaca TheFOREXpresso says:

passive income is not passive at all. everything involves work. from ideation to execution. the trick is doing what you love!

Justin Lewis says:

I made a "passive" income with 1 of two methods. First I worked 18 hours a day for 2 years until I made enough to take 8 months off and money came in.. but it obviously dwindled down without maintenance. Second I built a business where I delegated the work out to a team I built over the course of 9 years.. which still isn't passive because it requires management.

Alex Wightman says:

I thought gary was about to snap on this dude… he played it cool though
