Passive Income Ideas 2018
Here is a list of passive income ideas you can implement in 2018. They range from simple ideas to more complex ideas requiring higher capital to start off.

1) Real Estate Investors
Buy a strip mall, hire management, and have the cash flow deposited into your account - a classic form of passive income. Apartment buildings and rental condos are other possibilities. But be sure there will be enough income to cover management fees. If you have to manage it yourself, you just bought yourself another job.

3) Writers - Authors typically get about 5% of the retail price of a book, and those checks could keep coming for decades. Sell e-books from your own web site, and you can keep 90% of each sale, with nothing to ship. Have a processor handle the orders (that's where most of that other 10% goes), and you'll just have to answer an occasional e-mail.

4) Musicians - Create a hit song, and you'll get royalties as long as people still want to hear it. Don't sing? Song writers get royalties as well.?Insurance Agents - When you sell a policyHealth Fitness Articles, you normally get a commission every year when the customer renews. Insurance agents have been known to retire young with a healthy stream of passive income.

5) Buy Stocks that pays a good yield
Research on Stocks that pays good dividend. From time to time, you may find businesses whose stock may have gone out of favour with wallstreet. When this happens, their stock price will temporarily drop while ethy are still paying a high dividend.
