About Me

Hi there! Welcome to Passively Wealthy. My name is Arlin, and I’m the writer behind this blog.

I also blog over at the site About Social Anxiety.

In fact, this site is my solution to wanting to talk about the “behind the scenes” stuff about blogging, making money online, and my own approach to wealth in general.

I chose the name Passive Wealthy because it reflects how I’ve always felt about money.

In my early 20’s, I read a book called “Stop Working Start Living,” and it encapsulated my belief that money is only a means to an end.

This is very similar to the FIRE (financial independence retire early) movement written about by bloggers like Paula Pant.

The goal, in the end, is to create more TIME for yourself, not to create more money.

So if you create a business that takes increasing amounts of your time, you’ve only given yourself a highly paid job.

In my opinion, anyway.

I have a family, I like to travel, and I don’t like being forced to work. Certainly not in a 9 to 5 job, but also not in my own business.

And if I’m going to work, I want to be doing work that pays dividends over time, rather than a one-shot deal.

Anyway, enough about me. This blog is about you.

What are your hopes and dreams when it comes to becoming passively wealthy? I hope to explore lots of different options and tell you about the ones that I’ve tried.

Hopefully, something in the disorganized mess of my life up to this point might be helpful to you!
