In this guide, I reveal the best recurring income business to start, allowing you to earn over $9,000 or more every month. Discover the most profitable strategies to kickstart your journey towards financial freedom and stability. Don't miss out on this opportunity to secure your financial future!

 Why Recurring Income is Key

Running a business can be challenging, especially when dealing with unpaid invoices and chasing customers for payments. This is why residual income, which is typically never late and comes without excuses, is highly desirable. Residual income is recurring earnings generated from past efforts. Imagine making a steady income from a business model that’s 100% about recurring revenue. In this guide, I’ll share the best one-person operated residual income business model to start in 2024 that pays US$9,000+ a month in recurring revenue. This means money is coming in every month without you ever sending an invoice or making collections calls.

 Welcome to the Recurring Income Business Model

This business model has been around since the 1600s, introduced by newspaper and magazine publishers. It’s a proven model used by big brands like Netflix, Amazon, and Apple. Here are some examples:

- Netflix: $7.99 per month subscription.

- Amazon Prime: $139 per year or $14.99 per month.

- Apple Music: $6.49 per month.

- Patreon: Supporting a YouTuber for $20 per month.

The common factor among these examples is the subscription model. Let’s explore different types of subscription models and how you can launch this model to make recurring or residual revenue. The subscription economy is projected to reach $1.5 trillion by 2025, with companies using subscription models retaining 85% of their customers year-over-year. You only need a small slice of that pie to make $9,000 a month.

 Subscription Model 1: Jason Derulo’s Rocket Carwash

Jason Derulo, the pop sensation, expanded his business ventures by investing in Rocket Carwash. Who would have thought a carwash could operate on a subscription model? Here’s how it works:

- Membership Plans:

  - Express Wash: $19.99/month

  - Express Full Service: $44.99/month

  - Rocket Full Service: $54.99/month

  - Rocket Plus Interior: $69.99/month

 Practical Calculation Example:

- Basic Calculation:

  - If Rocket Carwash has 1,000 customers subscribing to the Express Wash plan at $19.99/month:

  - Monthly Revenue: 1,000 x $19.99 = $19,990

  - Annual Revenue: $19,990 x 12 months = $239,880

Setting up a full-function carwash is a huge investment, so here’s a more accessible approach:

1. Equipment:

   - Pressure Washer: Amazon Pressure Washer for $149. Consider a commercial version for $264.

   - Toyota Voxy for US$15,500. Use a commercial vehicle loan with a $100,000 deposit and monthly payments of $229 for 9 years.

   - Replace van seats with a 400-gallon water tank like this one for $135.

2. Operations:

   - Hire a driver and an assistant.

   - Target residential and gated communities to minimize travel.

   - Offer a subscription service at $60 per month for a full-service wash, including 2 full services and 2 exterior washes per month.

 Revenue and Expenses:

- Assuming 400 customers:

  - Revenue: 400 x $60 = $24,000 per month

  - Expenses:

    - Loan Payment: $460

    - Employee Salaries: $4,100

    - Petrol and Supplies: $500

    - Miscellaneous: $500

    - Total Expenses: $5,560

  - Profit: $18,440 per month

Even if you achieve half of that, it’s $9,000 a month in recurring revenue. Reinvest profits to expand your fleet.

With an average subscription of $39/month, it’s $29,250 monthly revenue.
