At work a couple of my colleges was talking about this board game where the goal was to produce the highest passive income. researching the term i learned it was exactly what i was trying to accomplish with my goal to earn $100k a year outside any sort of work so i wouldn't have to worry about loosing my income if something happens at work.
looking into ways i could make a passive income apart from my initial idea (getting $10mil into a bank account which generates at least 1% interest a year to make my $100k) i came across This page on Dividend-yielding stocks
Reading it though it seems more or less risk free, i can just buy some and forgot about them letting them generate over time. but this make no sense because something like this can't be risk free, if it was everyone would be doing it or talking about it in Get Rich Quick Schemes
So what are the risks involved in buying Dividend-yielding stocks?
