Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Shiv Shenoy. I am a husband, father of two adorable children, and online entrepreneur.
After having worked in lucrative positions in Information Technology domain for 15 years, I quit my job and started entrepreneurial journey owing to a moment clarity I had on a hospital bed.
That was in 2013.
Since then I have started two online business ventures in specialized education and digital marketing space, respectively, and me and my family are making a comfortable living with passive income streams I have set.
During this journey I have authored 3 blogs, written 21 books and helped tens of thousands of people around the world grow in their career, and helped people earn passive income on the sides while working on their day-job.
My goal for this blog is to share all the tips, techniques, and various online business models that I use to generate passive income with you.
All these are based on my results from what I learn through various courses and direct coaching from leaders such as Alex Jaffreys, Gerry Roberts, T Harv Eker, and Alex Mandossian.
I am committed to help you in your online business journey. Setting up online business to earn massive passive income need not be complex, but because of information overload and the shiny object syndrome it has turned out to be just that for many people – a complex, stressful exercise that for most people, leads to failure.
No wonder over 97% people never make any money online.
While in this blog I show you how to be in that top 3% that make a pretty good living with working just few hours online, my focus would be for you to build a long-term, sustainable business models that earns you handsome passive income for years to come. This, in my experience, is only way to the freedom of Time, Money and Location – something I call ‘The Freedom Trinity’.
Seth Godin says “Freedom is the ability to set your schedule, to decide on the work you do, to make decisions. Responsibility is being held accountable for your actions. Responsibility without freedom is stressful”.
I know that you shoulder a lot of responsibility in your work, and if you are like many, you feel that you don’t get rewarded as much as you should.
I know because I have been there.
Working for others for 15 years has taught me two things –
- JOB never compensates you for the efforts you put in (I was a 70-hour-a-week workaholic).
- JOB does not pave the way to live a life of freedom you dreamt of, or of being useful to the society in a way you wanted to be.
That’s why JOB is just that – Just Obey Boss. No disrespect to my bosses, most of them are the most admired people I’ve worked with and learned from. But usually it’s the corporate system that drives people we are reporting to to make certain decisions, and very very few people get all the decisions affecting them in their best interest.
If you are one of those that got all decisions in your best interest, I envy you. 🙂
If you were to put even 10% of that effort in your own business, you could build something that would generate enough money month after month that enables you to lifestyle the life you want – even potentially replacing your day-job income many times over.
But there are few secrets to getting there.
And the first one is,
Have the Right Mindset
Most people fail in their online business because they treat it as a hobby. The great thing is that virtually anyone in the world can start an online business – there is no entry barrier at all. But the same ease makes people not to take it seriously. You must treat your online business as a business, and like its CEO that you are.
That brings us to the second one –
They say, “Knowledge is Power”. Of course. And I think it needs to be improved upon. Knowledge without action is not very useful. The biggest obstacle for our progress is not taking action. Any amount of knowledge is not useful if it is not acted upon.
If you are a perfectionist like I was I know this can be hard. So it would be good to remember Pareto’s 80-20 principle.
Which states that 80% of our results come from 20% of efforts.
And thought the exact percentage might vary a little, but this principle has been found to be true to all aspects of life.
80% of what you earn right now comes from 20% of your actions. 80% of you true happiness comes from 20% of the relationship you have (might equal handful of people)… you get the drift.
In business trying to be perfect can cause doom.
As George S. Patton said, “A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”
It is much better to ‘ready, fire, aim’ rather than ‘ready, aim, fire’. Once done you can always improve things. And it is much much better to base that improvement on real feedback from the ground.
So, what is the lesson here?
The idea is to look for those few actions that earn us most in passive income. This is true irrespective of which business model you choose. Also, when the number of tasks are few and critical, there is less confusion and sense of overwhelm. It becomes easier to take action.
Norman Vincent Peale said, “Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
..and the last oneis,
Create Massive Value
..for your customers.
I have a quote written at my desk. It’s by Zig Ziglar – “You will get all you want in life if you help enough people get what they want in life”.
This is my guiding principle for business.
This is exactly what top 3% of online entrepreneurs understand and implement in their businesses. The great news is that it is extremely easy to create massive value in your business. There is absolutely no need to reinvent the wheel. All the information is available on the internet and you only need to know how to get access to it, and to put it through your own experience. You will learn all of that and more on this site.
I do not claim to be an expert, I am far from it actually. I like to try new things, test everything out. I have made several mistakes and learned from them. Even today make lot of mistakes, and through those I find what works and then build on top of it.
Now you can leverage my experience and save yourself lot of time and money. And the frustration.
