Passive Investor Tips is a weekly series hosted by full-time passive investor and Best Ever Show host, Travis Watts. In each bite-sized episode, Travis breaks down passive investor topics, simplifying the philosophy and mindset while providing tactical, valuable information on how to be a passive investor.
In this episode, Travis discusses his strategy for managing a portfolio of investments: the 8% rule. This is similar to the 4% rule many people live by who invest in the stock market, which says that when you reach retirement or financial independence, you sell off 4% of your portfolio each year and live off of that income.
The 8% rule is similar, except you are living off of the income your portfolio generates rather than having to sell off pieces of it. Travis shares how he’s used this rule for the past eight years.
