This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Commerce


Develop possible residual income streams that brings in at least $20 per month
     - must bring in at least $10 before this BB is complete
     - must be at least 2 different streams
     - Describe how this will continue to bring in an income for at least a few years
     - Do something where if you went to float in the middle of the ocean for a year, you'd come back and your bank account grew

Here is a Big List of Real Residual Income Streams

To get certified for this BB, post the following:
     - description of your income streams
     - links to them
     - pictures of proof they made $10 or more (you can smudge out the personal info, so long as it is identifiable yours)

My two residual income streams are:
1) Kindle books. I've had these going since 2011 and the income goes up and down depending on whether I do any promo or not! Income in 2020 was a total of CAD$115.97 so about US$7.50/month on average. Screenshots below show KDP account with my name; list of books; sales for 2020 (in multiple currencies); sales in my accounting system (in CAD$)

2) Gardening videos on Facebook and Youtube. I just started doing this in March, posting the videos for free but asking for donations if people found them useful. I received CAD$40 (about US$30) in donations in March, and will be continuing to add videos and promote them so hopefully that will continue.
Videos on FB: https://www.facebook.com/uhspr/videos/
Videos on YT: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq4H_vrP98JcAMBKttVsJqA
Screenshots below show incoming e-transfers specifically for videos.

I do have another residual income stream (LEGO building instructions) that earns more, but I already used it for the Sand badge :) I should have used the Kindle earnings for that, and saved the LEGO instructions for this badge!

1.) For this one I stake a variety of different crypto-currency on Binance, I have this setup to siphon my cumulative interest into my bank account roughly once a month or so. This completely varies on how well the digital market is doing, but even during these downturn times, I’m making around $17-$18 a month. For the month of June, I received May and April together. (Highlighted in Yellow)


2.) On Twitch, I LiveStream my Farm, The channel has adds, people donate, and I have a membership. It’s around $15-$17 a month. This has been steady since Jan. The Stream is always running I use it as my security cameras when I’m always, and I use all the comments on the stream to see if I missed anything important. Since, this is an old PC, I have no reason to ever stop streaming. (Twitch requires you to have ($100 before you cash out, and I’m at $75 in the account so I can’t cash out yet)

2b.) I also have a Patreon where I post videos, give advice and generally help people. Folks can join and give me a month payment, some people use this to support some of my work. Right Now it’s around $4.30 a month (This one is highlighted in Aqua)

*I’m also a content creator on Epic Games, you can see I received $8.00, but that is completely random, depending on how many people use my creator code. But, that also might is a type of passive income I receive. (xdrfirefly for anyone who plays Fortnite, or gets games of Epic Games)
