Many people are completely unaware of what passive income is; our society places such a large emphasis on active income that passive income is left in the trenches. Passive income, otherwise known as residual income, is income that is received on a regular basis, with little or no effort needed to maintain it.
Can you imagine making money while you sleep (literally)? If you answered yes to this question, then you are definitely reading the right book. The truth of the matter is that a stream of passive income requires a lot of upfront work to create, but will generate income for days, months, and even years into the future.
Don’t believe me?
I am still earning income from articles that I have published over 3 years ago! I wake up to earnings every single morning; those earnings come from revenue streams that I have set up in the past. I didn’t lift a finger for 9 days when I was sick in bed...I still earned passive income, during this timeframe, from those revenue streams that I had set up years ago!
Natalie Rossi is the epitome of an uptown rich Detroit girl; she’s the only child of Herman Rossi, the most ruthless prosecutor in the city and has a trust fund larger than King Midas’ coffers.
Having law books given to her from she could fully speak the English language, she wants to be a defence attorney and follow her father’s footsteps into the courtroom.
She has everything, but one thing she doesn’t need is her father incessantly shoving the sons of his colleagues her way. They’re all the same; white, rich, snobby and conceited. She wants someone real, someone who’s down to earth, and if he could shake her father up too, that would be a plus.
Enter Derek Coleman, a black twenty-two year old second year basketball scholarship student at her same school, Wayne State University in Downtown Michigan. He’s studying Physical Therapy but really wants to get into the Michigan’s Wolverines Basketball Team. One thing separates him from the typical black guy, he has a liking for white girls and he is scorned for it.
Through a simple accident Derek and Natalie meet and continue to do so and despite the multiple warnings on both sides, they fall for each other.
Herman Rossi, Natalie’s father, has a very strong prejudice of the lower classes and when he finds out that his daughter is in love with a black man from the ‘other side of the tracks’, he instantly bans them from seeing each other.
Natalie rebels, doing everything she can to be with him but Derek is torn; he loves his girlfriend but he’s fearful of her father and at the same time wants to prove to him that his suspicions about him are very wrong. In the middle of all this Derek’s younger brother gets injured and with no help from the local police, he starts a one-man campaign to find who had shot his sibling.
