Be Like The Tree Of 40 Fruits and Produce Multiple Revenue Streams!: Ep. 242




"Never depend on a single income." --Warren Buffet


The Tree of 40 Fruits grows in upstate, NY and as its name suggests, it produces forty different types of fruit thanks to the painstaking care of artist Sam Van Aken!  Now, as artists and creative types, we can all be like this fruit-defying tree and produce our own fruits in the form of revenue streams--fresh, juicy, fruity revenue! 

Anyone can produce revenue fruits and enjoy the benefits such as long-term security, freedom, and additional skills sets. If you rely solely on a paycheck, your financial security is extremely vulnerable to the whims and financial health of your employer. 

You can develop additional sources of income in any number of ways. Here are some ideas to get you started. Need more help? Contact us at Jelly is always happy to chat with listeners!
