as he tries to create $10,000 dollars a day in passive income

Hi, I’m Dean Woods

When I’m not with my family and fiancee, I’m trying to figure out how to generate passive income so I could spend more time with them and live the life we dream of. I’m writing this case study anonymously to protect my clients and family, who still have day jobs

I’ve advised Fortune 500 CEO’s and billionaires in my last job, but now I’ve quit that great gig to start at zero and figure out how to create an income

I’ve started $10K/a day to provide a resource that shows what the day-to-day struggles, late nights, and disapproving family realities of entrepreneurship really look like

My Plan To Get To $10k/day at 30

Phase #1: The Job

I work a full-time job with a full time side hustle consulting, with some real estate investing on the side.

My goal is to own roughly 60 rental properties in this phase 

Phase #2: Consulting

I’ll leave the full-time job to focus on consulting and real estate investing as a “bridge” before entrepreneurship.

The goal is to own roughly 100 rental units in this phase

Phase #3: Business

I’ll slowly stop trading time for money in consulting by starting a business that can consistently make money. 

The goal is to own roughly 250 rental units in this phase

Phase #4: Real Estate

I’ll leverage all income to buy real estate, hotels, dividend stocks, businesses, and more.

The goal is to make $10,000 a day in passive income

My Plan To Get To $10k/day at 30

Phase #1: The Job (COMPLETE)

I worked a full-time job with a full-time side hustle consulting, with some real estate investing on the side. I completed this phase when I quit my job. I quit because I needed more time to work on my consulting business

Phase #2: Consulting (CURRENT)

I now focus on consulting and real estate investing as a "bridge" before true entrepreneurship. Consulting now generates me >$50K a month The goal is to accumulate capital to invest in real estate and my future businesses

Phase #3: Business (FUTURE)

I'll slowly stop trading time for money in consulting by starting a business that can consistently make money. The goal is build a business that can generate >$200K a month while working <30 hours a week

Phase #4: Asset Investor (RETIREMENT)

I'll leverage all income to buy businesses making $1-2M EBITDA, Multifamily Real Estate, and Dividend Stocks. I plan to reach here at 30.

What an interesting past ~48 hours. The market-dominating news has been all about who is dominating the markets: Redditors with Robinhood accounts who’ve propped up stocks like Gamestop and AMC at the expense of hedge funds like Melvin Capital. There’s all sorts of interesting implications and plenty of people are drawing sides: Mark Cuban, for
