Hey, thanks for dropping by.
I'm Brad Weinman, former freelance artist turned passive income strategist.
If you've ever asked yourself:
"How can I create multiple streams of passive income that comes in while I'm sleeping, on vacation, or just having fun?"
"How can I make more money without getting another job?"
Or if you've ever just needed someone with a lot of experience that can mentor you…
… then you're in the right place!
In a taco shell, this site is all about money:
How to make it, manage it, and multiply it in unusual ways that go beyond what’s obvious.
If you're here, my guess is it's because you want more out of life.
More time, more money, more happiness.
You want something better than the daily drudgery of being stuck in a depressing-as-all-hell cubicle in a draining, soul-sucking job (or a passionless business that feels like a job).
You want to go beyond the status quo...
Add another 0 to your monthly income...
Have your money work harder than you do...
Take time off whenever you want without asking for permission...
And get paid while you're sleeping, eating, or doing cartwheels in a pink tutu while juggling coconuts on some remote white sandy beach (don't judge me).
Maybe you make good money, but you're so darn busy you can't enjoy it.
Ultimately, you want more freedom and less stress.
'Cuz let's face it, working your guts out 60+ hours a week and living for weekends isn't anyone's first choice.
Any of this sound like you?
Then you and I are kindred spirits.
WTH IS THIS PLACE?
I started Passive Income Renegade to cut through all the online hype and bullsh*t to help ambitious-minded people (just like you) find profitable passive income & money-making ideas, and proven wealth-acceleration strategies.
It's a place where I share my secret sauce for building multiple streams of active & passive income, and the uncensored truth nobody wants to tell you about making money online.
It's a place where you can escape from the mundane and explore the unconventional.
WHAT MAKES ME AND THIS SITE DIFFERENT?
I've been successfully working from home since 1993 and haven't had a regular day job since 1989.
In fact, I've been quietly making a living online as my ONLY source of income for over 20 years now (learn more about me here).
In other words, this ain't my first rodeo.
I still remember how painfully slow it was to have to log onto the Net using a dial-up modem.
During my long-ass and continually evolving online career, I've spent 1000's of hours and well over six figures researching, reviewing and testing just about every type of money-making opportunity and idea under the sun.
I've pretty much seen it all. Bought it all. And tried it all.
From network marketing, to affiliate marketing, direct sales, direct mail, eCommerce, drop-shipping, Amazon FBA, Forex robots, binary options trading, CPA marketing, autosurfing, rev-share programs, and waaayyyyy too many other opportunities to count.
Most of 'em were complete duds.
Some were profitable.
And a few have been super profitable, netting me as much as $148k per month.
Another thing to know about me…
I'm allergic to things that don't make money.
Any new money-making or investment idea must pass my "smell test" to even make it past the front door.
As much as 90% of the opportunities you read about online stink from a mile away and will NOT make you a flippin' dime.
I have a knack for being able to quickly tell whether something is a "turd" or whether it's a winner.
A lot of people spend YEARS working on turds.
Some people even have "golden turds."
They keep polishing and polishing and polishing.
But no matter how fancy-schmancy it may appear to be on the surface, at the end of the day, it's still a turd.
My goal is to help you "weed out the turds" BEFORE you waste your precious time and money on them.
But I digress...
The rare gems that end up making it through my strict vetting process face the toughest scrutiny:
I test the idea myself and unless it works for ME (or one of my trusted friends), it goes in the dumpster.
Bottom line: I only recommend opportunities, strategies, and resources that actually WORK.
Only the best quality stuff makes it on my site.
If you're like 74% of working Americans that don't have $500 saved...
If you rely on a salary...
Don't have multiple sources of income...
And don't have money coming in while you sleep…
You'll likely be working your entire life.
You'll worry about money your entire life.
You'll depend on others your entire life.
The boundaries of your life will be determined based on how much money you have.
And you'll never have true financial freedom.
But what if I told you, we can fix that? Together.
Is that something you'd be interested in?
If you're still reading this, I'm betting it is.
Stick with me.
By the end of this page, you'll learn how I can help you with the money part.
So you can succeed as quickly, easily, painlessly, and simply as possible.
My wife Chiara and I live a pretty comfy lifestyle these days...
But the truth is, the journey to get there hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows.
Not even close.
My first couple years online were more bang-your-head-against-the-wall than hammock-on-the-beach.
I spent money and lost money... to the tune of about $180k - OUCH!
I was lied to by scammers just so they could get my money.
I got my hopes built up.
I got my hopes crushed.
And I went through that vicious cycle over and over again (maybe you have too).
So I know exactly what it feels like to get suckered into joining gimmicky here-today-gone-tomorrow programs that were as phony as a $3 bill.
And I'd never want to put anyone else in that kind of position.
No amount of money could ever make me do anything to risk losing the respect of my friends and family... especially my wife.
I share all that to say this...
I've got your back.
Thing is, the internet is overflowing with information that will pull you in every direction.
For example, Google "make money online" and you'll find over 4.6 billion (with a "B") results and growing every day...
Then there's "passive income ideas" which only has 129 million results! Lol
With that much 'noise' on the internet, it's extremely hard to separate the hype, scams and all the other money-wasting crapola from the real thing.
You don't need more information!
You need an experienced guide that can help rinse your mouth out from all the poop you've been fed online.
Someone you can trust...
Someone who's already succeeding online and has the right knowledge, integrity, and experience to help you connect all the dots...
Someone who won't go into the witness protection program as soon as you join an opportunity with them...
Someone who can eliminate the "PIA" (pain in the ass) part of sorting through all the time & money-wasting garbage to uncover the solid moneymakers.
WHICH IS PRECISELY WHAT I DO ;-)
I've not only been in the trenches, I dug those bad boys myself.
Knowing the difference between something that will MAKE you money vs. one that will COST you money is where you get to benefit from my decades of experience.
The good, the bad, and the downright fugly.
Here's where I can help…
If you want to leverage automated systems that literally force your money to make more money so you're actually earning income while you sleep...
If you want to make more money without having to take on another job to do it...
If you want a better-than-average retirement, but don't have the income to make it happen...
If you're brand-new to the 'make money online' world…
Or you've been led down multiple paths by so-called "experts" who take your money and time and you have nothing to show for it…
Or you've been around for a while, but not getting the results you want…
Then let me be your guide.
You don't need to spend years failing like I did or make the same mistakes I made.
You don't need to try and figure this out all on your own.
I've already done all the hard detective work for you.
I'm always researching and concocting more and more ways on how to generate multiple passive income streams so me and my students can survive the next recession, zombie apocalypse, or Illuminati take over.
Whenever I come across a unique opportunity, or tool or strategy I think my readers can benefit from, I let 'em know about it.
No outdated or untested advice.
No blindly going down the rabbit hole, risking your time and savings on a money-making ideas that have never been proven.
Just the real scoop of what's working NOW, straight from an average, fifty-something dude who's living the proverbial "laptop lifestyle" every day.
It's what we do around here.
DO MY STRATEGIES WORK?
Let's be honest: my words only matter so much.
The words that really matter are those of my students.
Here's a small sample of students who have gone on to make more money, pay off debt, quit their day jobs, and create more freedom through my one-on-one mentoring (here's a bunch more testimonials).
"You are quite rare in this field as you seem to really care about people." ~ Irene Mori
It's a helluva lot easier (and faster) to reach your destination when someone who has been there before shows you the shortest path to get there.
How many people do you know that earn more money on vacation than they spend and never have to worry about when they have to go back to work?
Put my strategies to use like my students have and you can be one of those people.
Even if you're starting out as a total newbie.
Even if nothing else has worked for you before.
'Cuz, truth is...
Anyone can succeed online.
And no, you don't need to grind 12 hours a day to make it happen.
You just need a proven system and a caring mentor (like yours truly) who will be there to help you whenever you get stuck.
Just keep in mind that I'm at a place where I'm very selective with whom I choose to mentor and work closely with.
You need to be an action taker, not a tire-kicker.
You need to be a cool person - no negative nellies, know-it-alls, spammers, complainers, or whiners allowed.
If you've made it this far, I commend you.
The people who prefer to "get rich quick" will just skim long web pages like this.
They've usually left by now since I wasn't quick enough!
But you're more serious about your success than most people.
