Four years ago, Serena Star decided that she was going to stop being a wage slave; she quit her secure job in IT sales and started on her holy grail to generating a passive income so that she could stop working and just do what she loved. Since then she has started a men's designer t-shirt label, a music festival, a charitable project, a dating service, and a coaching business; she co- wrote internet strategy resources, she presents a radio show, has organised several events and gigs and has helped many people on the path to creating their dream lifestyle.
Along her journey, Serena discovered an amazing thing: that what she really loved was her work. While there isn't necessarily an easy way to create a passive income, Serena discovered that anyone can create a 'passion income' making money from doing something they love. Serena has redefined the concept of retirement and wants to teach others how to 'retire' now on a low- maintenance passion income just like her. Serena has had many successes and failures, cherishing both on the path to wealth and freedom, but she has finally answered the question of 'Can I do anything I want to?' with the simple answer: YES.
This book details the strategies Serena has used along her journey to retirement; strategies that anyone can implement. This audiobook is for people who are eager to learn, not afraid to try something new and who want to take charge of their destiny and create their dream lifestyle.

Too high level to be of any value

the story is solid and the content is useful, although not unique. I found the content to be too high level to be useful for beginner or for anyone who already started down the path of passive income.

The book feels slow and fails to provide an interesting story or details of the author's path. I recommend you find something else more useful like Brandon's Millionaire Messenger
