I know a guy who is doing this part-time, and based on my math, he seems to be making about $4,200 a month doing this 2 hours a day.

$3,500 a Month from Newsletter Curation

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE recurring income?

Here’s a brief case study about a guy who has not one, but FOUR different newsletters that he puts out twice per month.

These are super simple newsletters that contain all the latest stuff he’s found on the internet about the topics.

How in the world does he find all the latest news, articles, blog posts, stories, video clips, photos, and so forth?
