How Does Passive Income Security Guards Hire Company Works?

The Goal: Your ultimate goal should be; to run a licensed security guard hire company on a small scale that you are able to manage whilst still holding full-time employment elsewhere.

Passive Earning: that means this model of security firm should be able to attract small scale work like the following:

  • Venue Security Services
  • Night Club Security Bouncer Services
  • Birthday Party Security Crowd Controllers
  • Private Event Security Guards

You see, once your business is focused on targeting the above and let’s say your fulltime working hours is Mon-Fri 9 am-5 pm; you are likely to be free and available most weekends, and the above-mentioned security services mainly attract weekend bookings-jobs.

Take note; your clients are likely to book for weekend security guards during weekdays, but that gives you the opportunity to do extra work over the weekend at your client events or venues and earn regular extra income.

Employment: even though your goal is to make passive income in a small-scale security guard hire setting; you are likely to get venues and events that require you to supply up to more than 3x security guards at a time. That means the greater number of security officers you supply to your client; your earning potential is likely to grow vertically.

Retainer: I want you to know that some venues or clients might retain your security firm to provide week in- week-out security officers for their site, events on a yearly or biennially contracted basis.

The Secret of Starting Small

 One of the key advantages of starting small is:

  • Minimal capital to start
  • Less overhead cost and that keeps your pricing low
  • You attract a lot of small-scale events jobs because most medium and large companies won’t bother about such
  • Your client often gets value for money because when the owner is directly involved in working for the client, they often go above and beyond to give the client value for money.
  • You control your business growth at your own pace.
  • You work at your own time and choosing.
  • You gain good experience and decide if you want to go big.
  • Gives you the opportunity to learn a lot about managing a business and you can add this experience in your resume and apply for higher-paying regular jobs if you chose to


Never Lose Sight : never lose sight of your initial goal which was; ‘ to create a small scale security services  guard hire, that provides you an extra income on your day-off from your regular employment.’ If other opportunities happen to come such, as employing others and retainer contracts; then know it’s just an extra bonus income!


See this example; Pepe works as a security officer for ‘ZPS Security Operatives’. His working hours are Monday to Thurs 8 am-5 pm every week. But Pepe also owns a small-scale security guard hire firm that focuses on providing security officers for private parties and nightclubs during the weekend.

Regular Employment Earnings: Pepe earns $47,000 per annum from his regular security employment.

Passive Income Earnings: Pepe earns an extra $700 per week from his side security guard hire firm because he also employs 2x other casual regular weekend security guards. Now you do the maths and see what Pepe is likely to earn from his regular employment and passive income stream per annum!
