Hello and a very warm welcome back. The review for today is on a program called Passive Income and it is brought to us by Ryan Hogue.
Who is Ryan Hogue I hear you asking? in fact, I asked myself that particular question?
We will cover that in just a minute.
With this offering, you are going to get more than you bargained for in my opinion. Not one course but 5!
I have to say upfront the courses are overpriced but will they be worth it?
That’s one of the things we are going to figure out in this review.
Disclaimer. I am not associated or affiliated with Passive Income in any way if you decide to purchase them I will not be compensated financially or otherwise.
First of all, I must Congratulate you for taking your time to do your own research before buying into any offer that comes along. It’s a sure way not to be scammed!
Being scammed is one reason I now write reviews. However, I did find a legitimate way to make money online.
Let’s dive in and find out more:

Who Is Ryan Hogue?
I had to Google Him to find the answer 🙂
Ryan has a Youtube channel with 70.3 k subscribers and videos going back 2 years and he posts to the channel regularly.
This shows he has a lot of trusted viewers.
On Facebook, he has 36,927 people following him and the page was created in 2018. That’s a pretty decent amount of followers.
He has a blog ryanhogue.com which started life back in 2017. On his blog, he shares his income reports and he doesn’t make wild claims of earning millions.
In fact quite the opposite, in 2017 he made 53k. in 2018 & 2019 he made 130k profit and in 2020 he made 175k. With those sums, you could give up the 9-5.
Recently he started a podcast.
Sharing his income is a way of showing his steady climb to success.
It is a refreshing change to see someone being honest about their earnings growth.
Now we know a bit more about this entrepreneur lets find out about Passive Income:

The Pros Of Passive Income
There are no upsells.
You will receive tons of training on each course.
Amazon FBA and Amazon Merch are the best 2 courses in my opinion and they cost a lot less than most courses of this kind.
The Cons Of Passive Income
Although the courses do contain a lot of material they are very expensive.
My honest assessment is that there are just too many courses and that can really confuse people and cause unnecessary overwhelm.
The Stock Market Investing 101 course is overkill and it’s not something I would have included.
Is Ryan Hogues Passive Income A Scam?
You will receive all of the material mentioned above so that makes Ryan’s courses, not a scam.
I’m not sure whether you can actually make any money with these offerings so I would recommend that you err on the side of caution.
I personally would not buy them for the simple reason learning about making money with Amazon and Crypto doesn’t interest me.
That’s it for this review the rest is up to you.
Are you reading this review because you are looking for a business opportunity to work online from home?
If your answer is yes then read on a little further!
How I Work Full-Time Online From Home
For many years I searched for a legitimate way to make money online. I knew it was possible and I just had to find it!
The search actually took me 6 long years and I got into some terrible programs in that time and spent absolutely thousands of dollars.
Last year I finally found exactly what I was looking for!
It’s called Wealthy Affiliate and as soon as I joined I felt completely at home.
I didn’t need any special skills and it was free to join, what did I have to lose.
Suitable for beginners and experienced marketers.

The Reasons I Chose Affiliate Marketing
I work In the world of Affiliate Marketing. There are many positive reasons for this:
- You can start for free (with my #1 recommended program) It is free forever and you can earn from the free membership.
- There are no expensive tools or software to pay for
- You can work on this a couple of hours a day in your spare time
- You don’t need to make your own products
- You will learn all about SEO which is the organic and sustainable way of driving free traffic to your site
- No need to recruit others to join
- You don’t need to be concerned with customer support
- No special skills needed (which is good because I don’t have any 🙂
- You can still earn from whatever you are writing today for many years to come, a truly passive income
- No need to pay out for ads unlike the program we have just reviewed.
I Quit My Job
After starting with this training program 13 months ago and learning all I needed to know for a fraction of the money that some courses are charging I quit my hated day job at the 10-month mark.
Affiliate Marketing is a simple business model that just takes a lot of work to get started in the beginning because you are getting traffic organically instead of paying for it.
Now I spend my days writing reviews to stop innocent people like yourself from being scammed like I was!
(If you want to make your new business work better upgrade to the premium membership for $49 a month or $1.63 a day that’s less than a Starbucks costs!)
