Total: €10,500 So I have spent less than €2500 per month, including everything! What were your expenses during the past 4,5 month? Did you have as much fun as I did?
A passive income is something many of us dream of. However, in reality it is not easy to achieve. I do sell my own (e)books online, but that income doesn’t really add up to more than a few hundred dollars.

I prefer that they hear my story; I know that paid assignments will follow in the future. My main income in those 4,5 months resulted from the ‘cruise your business’ workshops I gave on the cruises to and from Spain-Brazil. A great deal for entrepreneurs and unexpected income for me.
