In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Michael Alder, real estate expert and host of the Real Estate Strategy Session podcast.

With a background in real estate and tired of dealing with deadbeat tenants, destroyed properties, evictions and lawyers Michael found Mark's podcast and said to himself, “This guy definitely has something here.” He loved the idea and decided to take MASSIVE action because it’s far more passive than the residential game.

Today we talk about wholesaling. If you've ever thought about wholesaling land, this is definitely the episode for you.

Michael offers newbie advice:

  • Start with the toolkit—get your education down
  • Complete a couple baby deals to get your feet wet. The process of getting those done will build your confidence and press you forward so you can start seeing the numbers you’re after.
  • Don’t get discouraged if nothing comes from a big mailer.
  • Focus on your model and keep pressing forward with it.

Also in this episode:

  • Scott’s scariest real estate deal… AKA the gangsta wholesale deal
  • Avoiding the shiny object syndrome
  • What is the difference between The Land Geek model and the wholesale residential model?

There is a lot of good stuff here, PLUS Michael wants to hook YOU up with goodies! Listen in for details.




Mark: Take action right away. Avoid the law of diminishing intent, because the longer it takes you to take action the more likely you are not to. Also Wonder-Bot – a FREE app that remembers the things that you easily forget.

Scott: Design Your Day: Be More Productive, Set Better Goals, and Live Life On Purpose by Claire Diaz-Ortiz A book about maximizing your time

Michael: Build upon yourself and it will help you build your business. Find someone that you can connect with that will help you build your self-esteem like Tony Robbins' book Awaken the Giant.

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk to Nicholas Coriano, founder of Nicholas is a definite go-getter in the business world. His ambition started as a child and at the age of 15 he was obsessed with magic and spent hours practicing which led to real gigs. He would charge $125 for a half hour magic show while his friends worked hard to make that in a week—and that was his first a-ha moment; if you practice hard at something and get good at it, it will bring you a lot of money. Nicholas' second a-ha moment came a few years later when he bought a domain for practically nothing and sold it at a 3000% return.

Nicholas is a true genius when it comes to business. His goal is to create businesses that help the world. Nicholas offers up some great advice:

  • Build a virtual team so you can go bigger with the things you enjoy doing.
  • Stay up on motivated people in the industry. It helps break down walls when it comes to building businesses.
  • 3 things you need: belief, desire, and a plan
  • 3 things you don’t need: fear, doubt, and indecision
  • Save money! Have a reserve.

There is a lot of great advice in this episode, including different variables to think about when purchasing land. And Scott finds one of Nicholas' businesses online that leave both him and Mark speechless! Plus, hear why Nicholas throws the conventional wisdom, focus-focus-focus, right out of the window. You don’t want to miss this!

It's time to take massive action with whatever it is. Test an idea, if it works slowly build it up. Figure out a way to outsource and automate it and then go into the next thing.


Mark: Simply, learn more about Nick. @NicholasCoriano, and his holding company—Profit With a Purpose

Scott: Go to Nick’s website!

Nicholas: First tip, follow Mark. You will learn a ton from him. Stay close to people who think like you. Second is a time management tip—Do It, Delegate It, Defer It, or Drop It… the 4 D’s. So when life throws things at you, either Do It right there, Delegate It to someone else, Defer It in time, or Drop It altogether from your mind so you can move on.

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk with Paul Kirch from BOSS Academy Radio — Business-Ownership-Success-Strategies.

Paul’s expertise is in sales, sales strategy, entrepreneurial motivation, business success stories and coaching. He started out working for other people but always knew he wanted something more. So after 21 years he took a leap of faith in 2009 and started his own company. He now helps other entrepreneurs come up with effectively usable concepts that allow them to sell more effectively without being sellsy.

It’s hard to leave the comfort of working for a company when you're bringing in a steady paycheck. Paul says don’t leave it until you are sure!

Once you have taken that leap then what?

  • Start by systemizing your business as much as you can.
  • Build a model which has the opportunity to grow into something in which you have resources so you’re able to spread yourself out a little more.

So take that leap but always be thinking in terms of, How do I get myself removed as the only person in this company.



Mark: Check out and listen to their Business Systems Explored podcast.

Scott: Check out and send postcards right from your phone for only $2.00.

Paul: Find clarity on what you want to accomplish everyday. Come up with one to three things that you have to do to make that day a success and whiteboard out WHY you need it done, WHAT it is, WHEN it needs to happen, and WHAT is the impact. It's not about doing but about accomplishing.
