My Story

Hi all!

I’m Idris, and I come from the sunny island of Singapore!

I was a full-time teacher of 5 years before making a decision to quit. Now I still teach part-time as a flexi-adjunct teacher, work on getting passive income and side income, all while having more time for my family.

I have 2 daughters, one is 4 years old and the other is 6 months old. I really find it meaningful to be able to spend more time at home and not be bogged down by deadlines. Those who teach as a profession (or any other professions for that matter!) knows that work never ends; there’s always school work to mark, lessons and school events to plan, after school activities and the list goes on!

I used to go home and be physically home, but my mind is always thinking about work. Now I really have peace of mind when I’m home and be able to spend time with my family with little distraction from work.

Now my goal is to earn more through other means, which I will share with all of you at timeforpassiveincome.com!


Why timeforpassiveincome.com?

Timeforpassiveincome.com was created to document the progress in my journey towards earning passive income.

It’s definitely a dream come true to earn money passively, but the reality is that it there is no such thing. ‘Passive income’ actually requires a lot of work and patience when starting out. It also requires continuous work to maintain once you start earning. It’s not totally passive and that you can just put it aside and continue to earn, you’d still have to work on it!

The difference between others and me is that I don’t dream it, I do it!


My Goal

My ultimate goal is to be able to earn enough just by working at it online so that I can be a stay-at-home-dad, because I’ll be able to work from home and be there for my family. Be it by affiliate marketing, making YouTube videos or by any other means, I’ll share it with you.

And the best part is, if I find something that works, I’ll share it with you! There isn’t a ‘catch’ or anything; when we share what works for us, both of us will benefit it together!

You may think that its not possible to earn online, but there are 3.5 billion people online from all parts of the world, and only a fraction of them have earnings from the online world. Don’t you want a slice of the pie too? I know I do. But of course, via the legal and legit way, not through scam or any other dishonest means.

Do join me in my journey to becoming a stay-at-home-dad, and hope you’ll benefit along the way too!


Always working towards my goals,

Idris =)
