    Hello,


    I'm currently expanding my IM ventures. I'm looking for passive income that will hopefully become semi hands-free (in the long term).


    I'm not in a rush to make money, as I have a steady income, however, I would like to implement one task
    that will forward my "passive" income each day.


    I have serious ADD and hate focusing on just ONE thing (I get VERY bored and unmotivated when doing
    the same damn thing every single day).. so I will attempt to venues of income.


    The first, I've decided is Kindle, and the second is well... I'm not quite sure yet. I'm thinking about following
    JustChilling on his Instagram journey as that sounds like a lot of fun but I'm still deciding.


    Ideally, I'd like to have 100 Kindle books in a year.


    Half way through, at least, I'd like to outsource a big part of the creation process.


    I'm fairly confident that I can do this and have a reasonable amount of success.


    I've been a member for a while, and love reading the journeys, so hopefully I'll be able to "carry on the torch"
    so to speak.


    I'm not too phased about failing. This is a learning process. So, I'll just throw enough stuff to the wall until it sticks.


    I have my initial plan of action ready, which I'll post below.

    Day 1


    1. I've used Merchant Words (Kindle Keyword tool) to find keywords that I want to target, in conjunction with KW Finder, I've found
    a few niches + keyword-specific keywords that I'm going to base the books off of.
    2. These books should at maximum take two days, as I'm focusing on the kiddies niche, ,which is simply graphics
    and a few lines of words (usually 300-800 words) will make around 40-60 pages.
    3. I've found a group of mums (To be honest, I'm a mom of a one year old) that I can ask to test the books with
    their kiddos before I release it and then can advertise to them. I'm quite active in these groups, so if a few
    members like + promote it, don't think it'll be a problem to get an initial influx of targeted traffic.
    4. I've got Cover Action Pro and am an expert in using Photoshop - so creating e-book covers won't be a problem
    except that I'm extremely finicky about the design process, so I'm going to try keep the cover design to a few
    hours a day.

    I'm looking to purchasing a decent Kindle course with a basic checklist of stuff that I should be aware of, do, etc. I have a basic idea of my goal, but at the moment, I'm just focusing on creating 2-3

    It will sort of be something like this:

    1. Create book
    2. Get mums to try it with their kids
    3. Feedback / improve on feedback, etc
    4. Design cover, optimize, put onto Kindle :)

    Rinse and repeat.
