Build Multiple Income Streams, Habits to Become a Millionaire, and How to Gamify Your Productivity


Did you know that, according to a study by Zapier, 1 in 3 people have a side hustle now? And that’s just in the United States! Putting all your eggs in one basket when it comes to your finances is something that’s becoming less and less attractive to more and more people. Taking that first step in launching a business is one of the most important things you can do to eventually reach the ultimate goal of complete financial freedom.

I’m here to tell you though: doing this is just the beginning of it. In order to truly 10x your wealth, you need to find ways to make money while you sleep. You need to be an owner of profitable projects that you can put on autopilot. You need to generate streams of passive income, and my guest today is going to show us how to do exactly that! Please help me welcome the one-and-only, Ali Abdaal, to The School of Greatness

He’s a serial entrepreneur, a productivity expert who has generated millions of dollars of passive income…oh, and he’s also a licensed doctor! In today’s show, Ali walks us through how he was able to launch, grow, and sustain multiple streams of income over the years — and how we can do the same.

“If you can do something that’s fun for you that adds value for others, you’re bound to make money.” @AliAbdaal
