How to Make Your First $100 in Passive Income

My simple playbook to Real Estate investing… Business Income... Royalties and much more...

Dear Friend,

Do you know how to make $20k to 50k a month passively?

Do you even know how to make $100 in passive income?

Well—this is what I want to show you in my previously Live Masterclass.

(Keep reading to find out more...)

You see—before I figured out how to properly monetize my skills and experiences...

I did what everyone else was doing…

I was selling my time...

It felt like a huge grind. Like a treadmill going nowhere. I felt trapped in an endless cycle...

But after numerous accounts of trial and error...

I finally broke the cycle.

All because of one principle—which I’ll get to in a minute...

But first—I want you to look at the top 5% of men…

Do you see what I see?

  • They continue to thrive and live a life of abundance. Even if the economy seems to be collapsing all around them
  • They take multiple trips and vacations all year long. But the numbers in their bank accounts rarely go down 
  • They can step away from their business and only work a couple hours a day. And reap all the rewards for little effort

It feels to me—they really know how to take advantage of the system.

Or they know something about passive income that regular people don’t.

And before we go on further… I want to get something off my chest.

The term “passive income” gets thrown around a lot online.

You even see 19 year old “gurus” who flex in front of their rented Lamborghinis

You’ll encounter “financial gurus” who claim “passive income” is super easy…

"You can make multiple streams of income and all you need is KNAWLEDGE."

Let me give you the hard truth...

Passive income exists.

But it's not easy like they claim.

(Sure—it can be very simple if you do the work.)

You don't just make a website and boom... “Set and forget.”

There’s a lot that goes behind the scenes. But like I said… it’s possible.

If you can create systems (and automations).

You can achieve near “passive income.”

I’ve done it many times in my entrepreneurial career.

I set up systems (and automations) to generate $50k - $80k a month for my own businesses.

(You can see my monthly income reports on YouTube.)

And I have teams to do a lot of heavy lifting.

(You don’t need a team right away. You’ll grow and need one eventually though.)

When the Twitter mob tried to “cancel” me. I still pulled in $50 - $80k a month consistently.

This is how powerful a good system (and automation) can be.

And I still don't have to be active in the day to day activities. I choose to be because I like working with my coaching clients.

(Once you set everything up properly—everything runs like clockwork.)

So you’re probably wondering… Can this work for me?

As long as you're willing to put in a little time and effort on the front end...

You can achieve the same results as I have (hopefully more).

So who am I to make such a huge claim?

In case you don't know who I am...

(You somehow stumbled onto this page randomly.)

I'm John Sonmez.

The founder of Bulldog Mindset and CEO of Simple Programmer.

I built a simple blog and turned it into a $2.1 million dollar business. And now I run an exclusive men’s action group with over 900 paying members.

I’m an active real estate investor. And I own multiple properties across the US.

But I wasn’t always the successful entrepreneur you see today…

In fact—I was just a regular software developer.

I worked at a regular office with regular coworkers. I did the 9-5 and followed what most people do...

Go to school. Get a job. And hope to retire at 65.

(And look—this path is fine. It can work for a lot of people.)

But I realized this process doesn't work for me.

Sure—I got promotions and I earned a high salary...

But I kept asking myself…
“Is this how to get wealthy?”

The answer for me is “No.”

It takes way too long… I don't want to retire at 65. I want to retire in my early 30’s

(Which happened btw but this is a story for another time.)

To keep this story short…

I found the answers in a couple books.

Books like Millionaire Fastlane by MJ Demarco. And Tim Ferris’s 4 Hour Work Week.

Regardless of what you think about them… the information in those books work.

All I had to do was recreate them for myself...

You see—here’s the problem 99% of people have…

You’re trading your time for money.

It's a 1 to 1 transaction.

(Like I said before... there’s nothing “wrong” with a high paying job or trade. It just takes a long time to get wealthy.)

This stops 99% of people from making real money.

This is why they can’t get near “passive income.”

And since you can’t clone yourself. If you're aren’t working. You aren't making money...

  • If you aren’t writing… you’re not making money
  • If you’re not making sales calls… you aren’t closing leads
  • If you’re not driving your car… you’re not getting paid

This is how most people think you HAVE to make money...

So what should you do?

Instead—you should use leverage.

Use leverage to create an exponential amount of income for your efforts.


(To give you the freedom to live life however you want...)

Here’s another problem with trading time for money...  

You're taking on MORE risks.

If the economy is printing money like a broken fax machine...

Your time isn't worth as much anymore.

And what if your employer can't afford to keep you around?

That’s a 100% cut to your income.

You're at the mercy of your boss and the economy.

This is why 99% of people stay poor or struggle to break out of the middle class.

But if you have multiple streams of income...

If one market crashes. The other streams remain unaffected.

Sure—it will hurt to lose a piece but it’s better to risk 33% of your income versus 100%.

Wouldn't you agree?

This is why I expanded my income streams to include:

  • Real Estate
  • Coaching
  • Selling my own products
  •  Offering my own services
  • Books
  • Courses
  • Affiliates promotions
  • Masterminds
  • And much more...

I Always have options if one goes down.

(Plus it gives me room to recover if one or two fail.)

But I get it… there’s a lot of people out there who claim they have the right solution for you…

You’ve probably tried a bunch already...

They tell you to try THE ONLY method that works.

But it’s all BS.

It all works.

Some are easier than others. Some take a lot of trial and error. Some get you small results quick while others give huge results much later.

There's nuance to it all.

I know since I tried most of them. I even tried a gumball machine business.

(To be fair it was nearly a passive income business.)

This is why I hosted a Passive Income Masterclass...

I want to show you what works and how you can make your first $100 passively.

So why am I sharing my secrets with you ?
