"Is it passive or does it depend upon your effort? You contradict yourself in adjoining sentences."

It's semi-passive for now. Sure I have to put in some effort, but at some point it was a lot more effort in the past than it was now. Make sense?

"No. You did not, and we cannot read your mind. And how scalable, is it really?"

I can't give you a finite answer but it's scalable. Do some research on eCommerce and see for yourself. I'm not your only source.

"At month end (or shortly thereafter) you should always have the data to know how much you generated in that month."

Didn't I saw that I track everything on a spreadsheet?

"And how much time is "as much time as needed"? I have now asked twice and you still do not answer, which makes me suspect that (1) perhaps you do not track it and thus cannot answer, or (2) you do know but do not want to disclose it, which causes one to wonder why. Perhaps because it is not the most efficient use of your time"

There's no finite answer to that either. It all depends. Some days I'll work 2 hours, some days ill work 12 hours. But to make it easier for you to visualize, Let's say that I work right after my 9-5 on weekdays. So 7-11 on weekdays and then 8am-3pm on weekends.

"First, I am not your buddy. And I can do without the passive aggressive tone of your writing. PSU has already addressed the substance of this question."

Well, You triggered me.

"If your business is as passive and easily scalable as you say, why not quit the 9-5 job and just go all in the business and scale it up to support your self in the style you wish to live?"

There's a plan for everything. Right now I'm investing my time on 9-5 to help cover necessary expenses in life. I have currently 2 income streams that I fulfill my time with. Better to have 2 than 1 right now, it speeds things up a bit. Eventually I will transition into full time ecommerce. I'm trying to show you that I'm being productive, create and maintain an online business and slowly transition out of the 9-5 lifestyle.
