As Cashflow Cultivators, you are now ready to step outside of your comfort zone and begin building new streams of income by using your life experience, education, raw talent, hard work, ideas, determination, expertise and tenacity to manifest money passively and actively and cultivate these streams to funnel into bigger pools of investments.
Cashflow Cultivators are constantly seeking ideas for ways to start small streams of income whether it’s passive income or active income.
The more passive and scalable, the better. We want to operate our finances like a business that is always looking for more ways to generate revenue to deploy into other investments.
Benefits of Multiple Small Streams of Passive and Active Income
The main benefit of multiple streams of diversified income is that if one flops, then you have all of the others still producing income for you. That is why we generate multiple streams of passive and active income. Building the passive and active income from small streams to bigger streams will help you diversify your cashflow so that if one fails, the others will still fund your life.
Challenges Setting up Multiple Streams of Diversified Cashflow
The main challenges in setting up multiple diversified passive and active income streams are perseverance and mental fortitude. It’s hard to start something new, especially without the complete confidence that it will work yet. The hard truth is that you have to take that risk and put yourself out there to make anything happen worthwhile in your life. You will have to step outside of your comfort zone to manifest new ideas into actionable steps to move forward in creating new income streams.
Income Stream Examples
Primary Salary Plus Benefits
Primary salary plus benefits support most families. This is usually most people’s biggest income stream. Having gainful employment via a job that you work for someone else has some advantages over operating a freelance service business. Mainly, you are gonna get paid reliably without having to deal with billing, customer service, and overhead from your own business. You don’t have to fight for your money, and you know it’s coming regularly. Having both and good reliable job and building businesses that generate passive income is ideal until your passive income and businesses allow you to afford to quit your steady job.
Secondary salary could be from a spouse’s employment via a job in the workplace. It could also include side gigs or businesses that generate more cashflow.
Most households are dual income, with a primary and secondary income, as both spouses work or have businesses.
Investments are usually long term. Cashflow Cultivators maximize retirement and tax-advantaged investments to compound the tax-advantaged returns. Long term investments are perfect for your retirement accounts.
Cash back from the creative use of credit cards, bank signups, and other special deals can add up and hedge your spending. Need a new washer and dryer? Open a new credit card that pays a $200 bonus if you spend over $1000 in the first three months and now you have saved $200 automatically.

Build Multiple Streams of Income Risk Assessment
There is always risk in life. You can risk your time, money, or health for whatever reward you seek. Building multiple streams of income hedges your financial risk with other streams of income to supplement your expenses should your main source of income, or one of the other sources you create expire.
