My business is a passive business which I forgot to mention. I'll generate sales when I sleep or if I'm sitting on a toilet. I just put more effort on it with my time because efforts compound. Did I mention, I'm scaling every month? that $200/month will become $300/month then $400/month, etc.

Really? How passive is passive? If you have to put more effort on it that doesn't sound like it's passive. Passive would be NO effort. How much time do you spend monitoring, updating, maintaining, fixing, scaling up, paying expenses, etc.? Even if it's 30 minutes a day, that's 15 hours a month. If you are netting $200, that's only $13.33/hour - less than you make at your day job. You really need to look at it with an effort vs. benefit view.

Sure it might be easy, but if you spent that 30 minutes a day getting a job that paid you $20 or $25 an hour, you'd be a lot better off in the long run.
