Who doesn’t fantasise about making several sources of income or earning money while sleeping? I’m sure I do! It has always been a dream of mine to run my own money-making venture. In this blog post we shall see how to build multiple income sources, particularly passive income.
For the past three years, I’ve made it my goal to diversify my income streams and never rely solely on my 9 to 5 work.
I’ve always desired passive income, but I also didn’t want to be reliant on a 9-to-5 job as my sole source of income.
I would be be safe if anything happened to my main full-time career, since I have several income sources.
This is why I am so excited about side hustles and other online ways to complement my earned income.
Even if you believe you have the safest job in the world, being reliant on a single source of income is dangerous.
Building multiple streams of income is crucial, particularly in a unstable economy. There has never been a better time to work on side hustles than now, with the global pandemic.
Finding another part-time job isn’t necessarily a best way to earn extra money. You are are again trading your time for money. If you are like me, having clear financial objectives, diversifying your sources of income is critical.
It is highly important to have more that one income source. Because if one did not work out the way you want, you have other.
With this in place, you won’t have to dig into your savings.
Multiple sources of income are useful for many reasons.

There are several explanations why you should build multiple income streams.
Consider a lifestyle where money is pouring in with little work.
Yes, you have to solve some small problems from time to time, but in most cases, your money will keep rolling every month without you having to do anything!
You don’t think that is possible? Well read on..
While creating multiple income streams will take time, you may be setting yourself up for financial independence in the long run.
With just your 9 to 5 job you will end up with the same income no matter how hard you work.
You will, however, multiply your money tenfold if you start hustling on the side. You can make more money if you try harder.
It’s the theory, however, these income streams have its own learning curve.
So, how do you build multiple sources of income?
Take baby steps.
You must have at least one stream of income to begin with in order to have several streams of income.
Generally, this will be your full-time career, and it would be your primary source of income. It has to be something you keep doing before it becomes habitual.
Then move on to the next source. Managing these sources can be time-consuming, but maintenance improve as you create each one.
Make an attempt not to do all at once. Set up the second, watch it grow and work, and then move on to the third.
Be cautious; don’t move on to the next source until you’ve gained complete control of the previous one; otherwise, you risk it collapsing.
You won’t be able to create your income streams overnight; you’ll have to work for it. I’ve mentioned a few quick ways to accomplish this:
Begin to save and invest:
If you don’t learn to save now, achieving financial stability will become increasingly difficult.
If you have the luxury of time, investing is a great opportunity because you can put money in and see it grow over time.
Choose an investment option that works best for you when deciding where to put your hard earned money.
There are a plethora of investments and opportunities available.
Transform what you like and enjoy doing into a source of income:
See if there’s a way to turn something you’re good at or passionate about into extra money.
Baking and cake decorating are two of my favourite things to do.A few years ago, I used all my baking knowledge to build a Facebook page and promoted it locally.
Via word of mouth, I was able to secure a few jobs from people I knew as well as strangers. I quickly found myself baking a piece of cake every other weekend and making about $50.
Even if it’s not a lot of money, it helps, and I can supplement my income with other skills/hobbies that I would never have.
See if you can turn a hobby or something you enjoy doing in your spare time into a viable source of income.

Continue to learn and develop:
After you determine your main source of income and focus on what you are interested in, you can create another source of income by continuously learning and enhancing your skills.
You can then transfer the newly learned skills to an established business model or develop a new one.

Also the largest corporations have understood this and run different businesses.
This will not happen immediately, but if you work hard and commit to this process, your money will multiply right before your eyes.
When you build long-term multiple sources of income, money works for you rather than you working for it.
