“Since the time I studied a number of books on Passive Income, I was hooked to the idea of creating passive income. Who wouldn’t want to when your earnings are not linked to your activity everyday? So naturally I tried many opportunities like creating a blog, writing a book, developing an app, trying out affiliate marketing among others. Unfortunately,I failed in all of them rather easily.
When all hopes were all but lost, my brother came as a savour and thought me how to become a Microstock Illustrator. Fast forward to Today, I have 650+ illustrations earned over $16,000 in passive income, may be more.
The cool part about passive income and this business is that my artworks created few years ago are still earning over $100+/month even though I no longer create new ones. I don’t get the time I used to get as I focus all my energies towards teaching how you and others like you can learn the same. This constant stream of income has made me wonder as what are the reasons for my success in this business while failure at others. After contemplating for months I have narrowed them down to five big reasons for you. Check them out next.”
This is the only business opportunity for a creative person like a digital artist to create a passive income. Even though I was not known to be creative, the business allowed me to learn to develop artworks that sells.
This is the easiest business get started as it requires no investment apart from your laptop and the adobe illustrator tool. This allowed me to give this a go without much effort or money and I was up and running with in days.
This is the simplest business opportunity for a creative person. You are not dependent on anyone else to create, sell and earn passive income. This allowed me to make the most of any spare time I got and covert them to vectors.

A typical Microstock Illustrator gets on with the business once he or she gets an idea of it. A smarter Microstock Illustrator finds and uses tools, techniques and strategies to optimise, evolve and gain an upper hand over her competition in every possible stage. Me and my brother did this throughout our journey and I will be sharing this wealth of knowledge in this power packed course.
In this business we get the opportunity to try many type of artworks. However, here too your earnings follow the Pareto principle where 80% of your sales will come from 20% of your artwork. So it makes sense to analyse these best selling artworks from my portfolio to see if there are any lessons for you to use in your journey.
As I am building a community of Microstock Illustrators who would have common knowledge of the business and have the same goal of creating passive income it makes sense to form a group or forum to enable interactions within the members and help exchange ideas and best practices. This will only take life if we have enough demand for it.
Q1. I don’t know Adobe Illustrator, can I take this course?
Yes, of Course. My Adobe Illustrator 80:20 course is a compilation of best tutorials available online on some of the most important functions of Adobe Illustrator. I am not very good at Adobe Illustrator but I have learned enough to taste success in this business. A lot of what I have learned goes to online tutorials like these on Youtube. If for any reason you don’t find particular lesson good enough, you can search hundreds of other videos out there by different instructors explaining the same thing. So, chances are, with this approach, you will be able to learn the basics of Adobe Illustrator. On the other hand, you can choose to go for an exclusive online or an online course paying extra.
Q2. I keen to find a permanent or freelancing job as a digital artist. How would this business help me?
To find a job as a digital artist you must build a portfolio of artworks. Initially you will not have any clients and hence you may create some dummy artworks, logos or banners of your liking to showcase your skills to your prospective employers. You will have it all in a blog or on your personal website ready to share it as and when needed. Thats what most people do. Instead of creating dummy artworks, why not create artworks which are in demand and try to sell them through this business while you are waiting for your next job interview. You will learn a lot more in this business about being a digital artist than reading books or blogs as you will be spending more time doing what digital artists are known for – creating illustrations. Finally, your portfolio on one of the microstock websites are viewed extremely highly than on your personal blog.
Q3. I have never tried anything creative before but I am interested in this one. Is this right for me?
Q4. How do I ask questions that I have about the business? Will there be any help from you?
Certainly yes. It is my passion to teach and help students and hence instead of continuing on with this business, I have created this course for you. So yes, I look forward to hearing your questions and answering them. We have a dedicated Q&A section right now where you can ask any questions about this business and I will do my best to answer the question or point you in the right direction. We are also working on creating lot more tools and groups exclusively for students to ask, interact and get their questions answered.
Harish Marnad is someone with a strong passion to learn and teach different aspects of life which help us reach our true potential. He is a well read person with strong and fundamental understanding of what motivates us, humans.
Creating passive income has been one of the strongest motivators of Harish from a long time. This had enabled him to explore different passive income opportunities even when he faced many failures along the way. His belief is that creating a good passive income lets us take our focus away from survival and enable us to do lot more in life. So it is all but natural that making a passive income not his end goal. For him, it is the means by which he can free up his time to take on bigger and more challenging tasks. What are they? you may wonder..
When asked, he has a clear answer on his biggest motivator in life. He believes his true potential is expressed by one and only one parameter which is the number of lives that he impacts before he goes to sleep, permanently. This is one of the main reasons why he used his spare time to create this comprehensive online course. He has now quit his well paid full time job in the UK to increase his reach and impact.
He has an interesting way to keep himself motivated. He says, every night his mirror asks him three questions before he goes to sleep. Whenever he finds that his answers are not good enough for too many nights in a row, he knows that he has to change something. What those questions are?
How much did you learn? How well did you enjoy? How many did you help?
We hope that you will create your own passive income and find time to discover own your meaning for life. All the best.
