How Can I Make A Passive Income

During & After Maternity Leave?

Being a male I have never been on maternity leave. However, I have been on paternity leave (the male version but for a much shorter time period). During this time, you bond with your little bundle of joy(s) and it’s an amazing time, Being a father of 3, I have taken paternity leave and believe me, the pay, is shocking! I think it was £90 odd a week. This can cause terrible anxiety if you are used to earning much more money.

If you want to earn money during maternity leave, well in all honesty, you are very limited as you have a baby to contend with. However, you want a way to earn money, from the comfort of your own home and you want it to be something you can jump into when little one is asleep.

    Very inspiring article. Since I got interested in affiliate marketing, I was wondering for a while. A lot of them sounded like a fairytale. Abundance in income overnight – yeeaaah right, I don’t believe that. So I came to WA and I’m so glad I did.

    A good post Russ. Affiliate marketing and online businesses in general seem to have taken a massive upswing over recent months which of course makes sense. The WA offering in my view is well ahead of the others so I too would give it the thumbs up.

    All the best – Jason.
