SPI 046 : Building a Lucrative Business with No Ideas, No Expertise & No Money with Dane Maxwell In this session of The Smart Passive Income Podcast, I invited Dane Maxwell from The Foundation to come onto the show and chat with us about his approach to building an online business, one that doesn’t include the need to become an expert in any particular niche (what?!), any money or start up funds (double what!?), or even any ideas!

Regardless of your religious or philosophical outlook, gratitude may be one of the factors that can increase your happiness. On a person to person level, saying "thank you" positively reinforces the person who has offered you a gift. Therefore, that person may choose to give again.
