This 37-year-old quit her job and now makes $10,000 a month in passive income: ‘I wanted to be my own boss’

In 2013, I was working as an engineer and making $80,000 a year. But I felt unfulfilled by my job, so I started a food blog called Delish D’Lites.

So I continued to work on my blog, even after I got another full-time engineering position. I set aside time to post once a day, sharing recipes inspired by my Puerto Rican heritage. And within three years, Delish D’Lites had grown to 15,000 monthly readers — enough to create a profitable brand.

While growing my side hustle, I developed a deep interest in personal finance. In 2019, I started a money podcast called Yo Quiero Dinero to share my experience and help other people build wealth.

Today, at 37, I have 10 income streams, including blog and podcast ads, affiliate marketing, speaking engagements, digital course downloads and brand partnerships. Combined, they bring in an average of $35,000 a month in revenues — $10,000 of which is in passive income.
