All financial experts say that passive income is a major key to fiscal success.

Wouldn’t it be great to have money coming in while you’re sleeping, vacationing or getting a body wrap? Because you are so busy running a spa, building a business, managing a team and servicing clients with a smile, here’s a way for you to earn passive income that can give you a much-needed break.

The benefits

Sixty-four percent of online beauty purchasers said that they mostly buy products that they have tried before. This serves as evidence of how important it is for you to remind clients that they can shop online for the products that you’ve used on them during a service. Also, “convenience” was cited more often than “discounts” as one of the most important reasons for shopping online.
