928. How To Make REAL Passive Income

I’m joined by Patricia Carlin, a payments industry powerhouse and co-founder of Residual Payments. I’m all about finding creative ways to bring in extra income, and ​​becoming a digital payment expert is a great way to do that. Patricia explains exactly what being a payment processor is, how the job works, and what to expect around the workload. She also pulls back the curtain on the earning possibilities for someone who really puts in the work and dedication to their business, and shares her tips for how to land new accounts. 

Patricia is upfront about the most common challenges that she sees people struggle with, and how she helps her community break though mindset blocks to create a successful side hustle. She knows firsthand what it’s like to dismantle limiting belief systems and we touch on how she’s learning to embrace the label of ‘powerful woman.’ Chris and I always stress the importance of having multiple streams of income, especially in today’s economy, so listen in to hear about this amazing opportunity!
