Several years ago, I attended a concert by singer-songwriter Julie Gold. She’s best known for her song “From a Distance,” which was recorded by Bette Midler in 1990, hit the top of the charts, and won a Grammy Award. When Gold performed that piece, she described it as “the song that gave me my freedom,” because the royalties from Midler’s recording had enabled her to give up her day job for good and become a full-time musician. This story shows that it’s possible for an artist who gets one really big break – such as a hit song, a successful movie, or a bestselling book – to live off the proceeds of that one success for life.
Financial Products. Certain types of financial products, such as annuities, also pay ongoing commissions to the professionals who sell them. Financial advisor Ethan Braid of High Pass Asset Management writes that when he sells a $500,000 annuity, he not only earns a 7% commission, or $35,000, immediately – but on top of that, he gets a 1% “trailer commission,” or $5,000, every year the buyer owns the annuity. So a financial advisor who has sold 10 annuities that are still active could bring in an income of $50,000 a year just from these trailer commissions.

1. The batting cage idea is very risky. I’ve seen many of them close over the years and it is not anything close to passive income if you want to keep the business going. You have to continually promote it and target youth leagues, coaches, schools etc to catch all of the new players who grow up and want to play. I’ve played at probably 8 batting cages over the years and 7 of them closed.
