Mailbox Money

Mailbox Money

There's an old-fashioned expression called "mailbox money" that basically means passive income. It's money that just shows up in your mailbox -- email inbox or physical postal box.

Here at the Portable Lifestyle™, we don't like physical checks all that much, but we sure love money coming into digitally. As you set up more passive income streams, money flows into your inbox from all over the place! It's exciting to see what shows up from where.

If you're want to create your own Portable Lifestyle™, mailbox money should be a part of it. It's the perfect time to do so, because never have there been so many channels to lay in mailbox money.

How do you create that flow? It's surprisingly simple.

  1. Find an expertise with lots of potential customers. The easiest niches are health, wealth and
       relationship. These are the 3 that a great many people are willing to pay for.

  2. Decide the best way to deliver your expertise be it an ebook, an informational product,
       streaming audio, mp3s, video or a course

  3. Figure out your method of delivery: through an autoresponder, Amazon, dropship, etc.

  4. Create the product. (In Kathryn's Teacher Training, she teaches an astonishingly easy way
       to create your first product. It can just take a couple of hours!)

  5. Develop your sales methods and marketing including creating targeted ads and landing
       pages

  6. Get the word out and watch the money begin rolling in!

This is how to start. There is more involved certainly, and if mailbox money is something you're interested in, do check out Kathryn's Teacher Training which is just starting.

You will create a specialty for yourself in the arena of love, which is one many, many people need. Your customers will be endless. And this training covers every single one of the above steps in depth. As you graduate, you will be skilled in all of these areas, able to easily lay in mailbox money that is automated and continually pulls in income while you are out having fun.

Connectivity on the Road

Connected on the Road

We're enjoying coastal North Carolina at the moment, and we've never been more happy about our connectivity setup.

The truth is that the Internet is spotty around here, and our phones often get no signal when we're in the countryside. Here are the things we're currently grateful for:

  1. Satellite GPS - sometimes there's no substitute
       for it

  2. Smartphones as secondary "hot spots" - using
       our phones when the Internet down has saved
       us several times

  3. Multiple devices to pick up signal when another is failing

  4. Several routers

Yes, you would think that our lodging would have better Internet, considering it's one of the advertised amenities, but we're a new breed who go on vacay while working. And we are probably the ONLY vacation renters who have ever complained about needing the Internet.

So far, our good planning has kept us from crashing and burning as far as Internet goes, but we continue to educate lodging options on how essential good connectivity is for those of us who work AND vacation all at the same time.

Hidden Gem: Topsail Island, North Carolina, U.S.A.

Topsail Island Right now, we are on Topsail Island, North Carolina. Kathryn's family has its roots nearby, and it is a hidden gem. Not as crowded as Wrightsville Beach, which is closer to Wilmington, Topsail has all you need for a good time: plenty of amenities, stores, restaurants, and best of all, warm water with good waves.

While the ocean back in California is a chilly 60 degrees, we're reveling in the warm sea here. We spend our days boogie boarding, building sand castles, floating in the waves and walking up and down the beach. We're going out to eat every night with relatives. And yes, there's a few minutes of work daily.

Many of North Carolina's beaches are getting overcrowded, but Topsail, not so much. We highly recommend it!
