How possible is it really to develop passive income streams?
I've read about this, often in little articles which I suspect are largely online or offline bait and switch, like the careers fares at which there wasnt anyone recruiting just lots of people selling their services in creating CVs etc.
Anyway, I do hear, and do not doubt, about cases in which people have derived passive income as a consequence of good luck or good fortune or chance, like the videos of babies which go viral or the video that guy produced raving about his mate's choice in clothes or white vans shoes.
Good luck to them and I like to hear about luck or good fortune which is entirely attributable to chance as much as the next person but I have read of a number of internet personalities who suggest its possible to engineer this, with a super blog or something along those lines.
What do you think? Is it a thing or is it just snake oil or is it something which has reached peak supply already so with a handful of new media providers, such as insider, unilad, people are awesome, its all more or less covered?
