Passive income is consistently sought after by investors and non-investors alike. Indeed, the establishment of consistent passive income is typically the first step toward financial freedom. Our retirement plans aim to build a nest egg that is large enough to provide suitable passive income to live comfortably for the rest of our lives. Today, I want to discuss how you can churn out passive income much earlier and at an attractive clip.
In this hypothetical, we are going to look to generate our passive income in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). This will allow us to generate passive income that will be entirely tax free. We are going to start with a $20,000 investment. How much can this churn out for us each month? Let’s jump in!
