- Reviewing electric hoverboards with affiliate links. You make money when someone purchases from one of the affiliate links.
- Creating an eBook or a course on electric hoverboards and sell it.

4. Real Estate
One of my favorite income generating assets is real estate. You can purchase single family, multifamily, or even commercial real estate.
Other advantages of real estate include appreciation, depreciation, equity, and leverage.
A big benefit of real estate is that you can put 25% down and purchase an asset immediately producing income for you every month. With some properties, you can even put down 3.5%.
