Every blog post and epic tutorial, I like to talk to you first my friends, I like to update what’s going on with my life and my online business stuffs. This month, everything is going pretty well for me. Since the starting of this blog, I’ve been reading a lot from many bloggers, writing almost every day and listening almost all episodes from Pat Flynn’s Podcast. It’s something that I’m really happy to do it. Before I started the journey of self-publishing and this blog. I was never been happy with my projects. I just did these projects and hoped for a lot of money. I felt like I was trapped with a get-quick-rich-scheme. I’ve changed my mind since I was listening with Pay Flynn’s Podcast about “Passive Income”. First thing, you have to believe that you can do it and change your mindset. There are many projects that related with “Passive Income”. All you need to do is pick one and do it. THAT’S IT!
