=>The goal of Multiple Income Streams: passive income
The goal of all this busy-beavering is passive income. That is, work that brings you in cash long after you've completed it. If you're a writer or artist, this is books that you've written that are bringing in royalties, or that you're selling on your own Web site. If you're a photographer, it's stock photos you've licensed that bring you in fees whenever anyone uses them. If you're a Web designer, it's hosting clients' Web sites.
The big benefit of creative life is being able to license your products. If you're just selling your time, your income is limited by time you have to sell, and you'll always be pushing for next project, hoping that it's a long one at a good hourly rate.
Think "intellectual property" and "products" and picture changes. Imagine if you create one product every few months, and sell one copy of that product each week. The more products you create, more you'd be selling, and more $$$ you'd have coming in.
