Must read 🏆

Independent Wealth is a blueprint for individuals who want to create a profitable online business doing something they love.

Every day new online businesses are formed and perhaps even more fail because of inexperience or faulty information. Joseph France comes to the rescue with his book Independent Wealth to show entrepreneurs that it is possible to turn your passion into passive income.


I love the simple, practical advice that the author offers in Independent Wealth. I cannot tell you how many times I have rolled my eyes at some of the nonsense I have read when I was building my online business. For the new entrepreneur, the plethora of misinformation about starting a profitable online business is frightening and misleading. Providing the reader with some of his failures to launch is a great idea because this can help new entrepreneurs in their decision making. The author’s honesty is greatly appreciated because too often individuals just report the big wins and neglect to mention the failures before making it. I am glad the author spoke about the importance of not listening to naysayers when you have made your decision on how you are going to earn from your passion.


Independent Wealth is an honest view of building a business around your passion. Joseph France puts the new entrepreneur at ease by providing a step by step guide to turning your passion into passive income. Chapter three is an especially important chapter because that is where you will find the five simple steps you need to start an online business. According to the author, the key to success is to get the first steps right. Once you get the first steps right then it is easier to turn your passion into passive income.


I highly recommend this book to every potential entrepreneur who is searching for ways to turn their passion into passive income. If you are struggling to settle on what you should focus on when building an online business, then you should pick up this book. For any parent who wants to work from home so they can spend more time with their kids, Independent Wealth is a great starting point.
