Making Money Online and How to Make Passive Income are 2 of the biggest topics on YouTube. But what Nobody Tells You About Making Passive Income or Making Money Online is why it’s so hard and why so many people FAIL at it. Today I’m going to share the real secret to making money online and the harsh truth about why everyone doesn’t make money in their sleep.


If Making Money Online in 2020 is so easy why doesn’t everyone do it? I get hit with this question all the time whenever I talk about Passive Income and Entrepreneurship.

The funny thing is that I’ve NEVER said it was EASY, but I have claimed that it is SIMPLE. But if it’s so simple why doesn’t everyone do it? Good question.

I once heard the phrase, common sense, is not common practice, and it stuck with me, and I think it relates to Passive Income and Making Money Online in a big way. Because we all generate Passive Income for someone other than ourselves and we all are spending money online. So why don’t we reverse that and do it for ourselves?

For one thing if you KNEW that you need to move to transaction based income instead of time based income, (which most people don’t even consider), you’d still have 2 big problems. The first is you’d have to find the confidence to do it, and the second is you’d have to have the confidence to keep trying and refining your methods until it works.

Fear, lack of confidence, skepticism, bad past experiences, whatever the reason is in your mind, it is the barrier to action, and action is the ONLY thing that produces a result, good or bad. And for me the same emotional and mental block you might have about Passive Income or Making Money Online is the same one I have about human connection.

It’s challenging for me to make friends, because I’m constantly scared of saying or doing the wrong thing and embarrass myself. You don’t want to risk time or money in a online business that might fail, and I don’t want to risk humiliating myself in front of pretty girl, or a group of strangers.

Until we resolve our ability to commit and gather the small scraps of courage we have, and take some risk, we can’t expect to be rewarded in the same ways as other people. So it’s important to have reasonable expectations and respect small victories.

Start with a small and reasonable goal for making money online like making your first $100, then try and see if you can double that, and so on and so on. Then maybe challenge yourself to make an extra $100 day and see how many days you can make that goal.

When we have small wins, we have FACTS that we can confront our fears with. But we have to be willing to at least risk failure, or rejection in or to gain anything worth having.

  4. RaNdOm Entertainment May 12, 2020

    For anxiety there’s yellow school busses and green hulks 😂🤣

  5. What Now? May 12, 2020

    I like how you broke it down to..I just need to make X amount of dollars per month.

    Mine is, I just need to make $200 per day and if I make only 50% of that, I will be fine.

    Now, I will begin thinking about how to generate income from my skills.

    I have a website that brings in 2K visitors per month, I might start there.

  6. PuppetShortFilms May 12, 2020

    Me: scrolls down down down 😁 I can't lie, I like mess.

  11. Aaron Peipert May 12, 2020

    Oh, my gosh, I can’t believe it!

  12. DMJ Vlogs May 12, 2020

    I love this! Introvert here! Thank you for giving this advice, Roberto! I might try your style since I also have anxiety to start stuff.

  13. Noob Tactician ML May 12, 2020

    Thanks, Roberto for these very practical insights on how to approach online money-making. I can relate to you on a vicarious level because I'm also a highly-introverted person and had gone with the same childhood struggles that a typical introvert would get into.

  14. Mr Tropical May 12, 2020

    Hey Roberto thanks for being so honest about yourself and I can connect with a lot of what you said. Thanks for being upfront about the struggles that you have overcome and continue to overcome instead of putting out videos saying it's easy to make money online, etc by using a fake ' happy all the time' face/ attitude that some You-tubers do. Thanks for actually having the ' balls' to put your insecurities online for the world to see as many people walk around projecting confidence although inside they are insecure themselves but act super confident so they dont appear weak to others. Even during this virus epidemic I predict that you will continue to gain subscribers and be successful because your honesty shines through in your videos. I myself am a semi introvert starting from absolute zero economically/ learning/ etc and your videos are the kick in the backside I need. Lastly thank you for being a real normal positive minded 'brother 'instead of projecting an image of thuggery i.e. You are showing impressionable young men that you dont need to have tattoos on your face, go to jail for foolishness, have lots of jewelry or do illegal hustling to be successful in life.

  16. DaintreeJD May 12, 2020

    Nice Video Roberto thank you for your honesty.

  17. Mabinogi Enthusiast May 12, 2020

    Might be off topic but I want to thank you. I've been trying to do YouTube for a while, I've bought courses and everything but the advice you've given has helped me finally start to make progress. I shifted my way of thinking to making content based on the assumption that nobody knows who I am and nobody cares. I try to focus what I make based on how much value it can give to my viewer. You're an inspiration to me so… thanks =)

  18. Erick Onego May 12, 2020

    Your level of sincerity is so amazing that it's a kind of charisma…

  19. Super Mondo World May 12, 2020

    Sometimes I don't understand why RB thinks he is not a Unicorn.. Truth is the man is a true Unicorn! unique, one of a kind, extremely, resourceful, helpful and Well Spoken!

  20. B Graycious May 12, 2020

    I love you Roberto….you have helped me a lot, you are like a motivational speaker for me. I listen to your videos and they give me the confidence to do things that I hesitate to do. I am working on my YouTube channel and blog.
    Thank you for being you.

  30. Elijah Truly May 12, 2020

    Hey man I’m relatively new to the channel but great video!

  31. Desi Marie May 12, 2020

    Thank you, Roberto!

  32. Michael B. Isbell May 12, 2020

    Love it bro, Romina posted a tweet that perfectly wraps up why I love your content so much – it's hard to be the good friend that tells you the hard facts of what you need to make your life better. I wish content like this was more popular on this platform, maybe one day we'll get a dedicated educational platform with COVID wiping out reliability in public schooling systems.

  33. Filming With ME! May 12, 2020

    Hey Roberto! Always so happy to see you! Thank you for your transparency. You’ve taught me a lot! 🙂 Interestingly it’s easier for me to engage face to face but get on camera? Yikes!

  34. Mama Bear's Backpack May 12, 2020

    Now that I've watched the video, I see what you're saying more clearly. I do need to figure out how to make this a money making venture. I do want to grow my audience more, and I am making success with that. Small victories for the win. My views are up 187% and watch time is up 173% over the past 28 days. My impressions are up 82% and my ctr is steady at 3.2%. Although over 28 days my subs are down 7% over this week they are up 500% That is a victory to celebrate for sure. Simple in theory, but not easy to overcome self doubt. These little wins will keep me focused on the long game. Thanks Roberto. P.S. She will be beautiful and patient, and just the right level of introvert to "get" you. And she will show up when you are doing what you love.

  35. Geeta Nku May 12, 2020

    Wow, I am also an introvert. Shy but two days ago my conscious kept telling me to upload a video on studying in Germany. That it would change someone's life positively. I deed. I pray to be courageous enough to continue

  36. Gardens of Blessings Tv May 12, 2020

    Thank you! Yes it is hard and I am stuck but I know this one shall pass. I just need to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel.

  37. RACHEL100 May 12, 2020

    “What success means to you as an individual and having the courage to pursue it”

    What an excellent video. Thank you very much for all that you do.

  40. Calculated Risk May 12, 2020

    Privileged? Anyone saying that has to be an idiot…

  41. joe carter May 12, 2020

    I'd say it's because people want to make big amounts. We dream about 50$ a day what is really hard to achieve. But if we speak about little money it's not that difficult. Last week I installed Honeygain app that is a passive income app that gives money by sharing the unused internet traffic. Got 5$ immediately bcs registered with code "luckybee", so today I have 11$ in my account. In this case it's not difficult, I have to do almost nothing but it's because I don't make 10 or 100$ a day…
