If you want to create passive income on the internet, you have to have your own product/service to sell, or sell someone else's. I'm doing both and I'll share how you can do the same!
I've been a wedding officiant since 2008 and began to look for a source of income outside of the wedding industry in 2012, and tried affiliate marketing, drop-shipping, and network marketing. In 2016 the Universe brought the SFM into view and I signed up, thinking that I could generate passive income on the internet and build an online affiliate marketing business, while simultaneously expanding the online reach of my wedding officiant business.
The SFM teaches the importance of marketing info products because they're created once and then available 24/7 for purchase. Customers can download and access information at their convenience, so the business owner can make money while he or she sleeps.
While going through the training modules it dawned on me that I had everything I needed to start my own info product! A new beginning!
You might not know that anyone can officiate a wedding ceremony in 47 of the United States. That being said, many friends who've gotten ordained online to officiate for people asked me for help and they all told me how lost they were before they had my info. My friend, Bryce is the one who really convinced me to put my ceremony scripts and process together and sell it as my own information product. Check out www.mattsweddingceremonies.com.
I've learned a lot over the last few years and more specifically, the last 18 months. Whether you have your own product or service to sell, or sell as an affiliate for someone else, there are only two ways to market online: create content to market or pay someone else to create content to market.
I'm a do-it-yourselfer. I like to know things, so I've followed the SFM's direction and taken to blogging. I've learned WordPress, found a template I really like and have set up four websites in the last 18 months. Check 'em out! FirstOfficiant.com, MyMobileMinister.com, MattsWeddingCeremonies.com and this site, IslandTimeLiving.com!
I've learned that business owners/online marketers need to:
- Research. What problems are people having that aren't being solved?
- Create. Create content that helps these people.
- Syndicate. Spread the word and tell people how you can help them.
Researching is time consuming and pitching product and selling to people doesn't feel natural to me, so I've begun to just blog about my experience and share what I learn.
I'll share the key things I learn along the way, hopefully showing you how to create passive income on the internet and go into business for yourself.

Meet Stuart Ross, SFM Co-Founder and Your Guide
"Welcome! I started my journey into the digital and entrepreneurial world with nothing more than perseverance, a laptop and a dream.
To date, I’ve created a multi-million dollar lifestyle business in the education and technology industry that I absolutely LOVE. My driving passion is sharing the know-how and mindset that lets others feel the same way.
The reason they call me The Freedom Entrepreneur is because I refused to accept the constraints of traditional employment. Having successfully found a better route, I’m committed to showing others how to live life on their own terms too."
Stuart and his team have helped thousands of people who want to be self-employed from the comfort of their computers, but don't know how. The SFM's Digital Business System and community are one of the fastest ways to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.
Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My 'vision' moment happened while on vacation with my kids. I realized that we'd made very few memories as a family, because of health issues that have prevented me from doing much travel, and because my career has me working weekends.
My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids' childhood and making quality memories together. That's the vision that keeps me motivated. I'm putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
"Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I'm investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you're enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you're learning from."
The most important investment I've ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The SFM will show you how to use the internet as a tool to support yourself from any location. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing. Unlike traditional education, you'll have passion for what you're learning!
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! I live by this principle in every aspect of my life. Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead.
My top goal is lifestyle freedom and knowing that the internet makes that possible, I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM. Their experience and coaching allowed me to avoid expensive mistakes and succeed the second time around. They've made me into a successful online entrepreneur!
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don't know your values, then it's time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values.
One of my main values is family. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I'm always available to make memories with my wife and kids.
God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
