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.

 

 

TIPS OF THE WEEK

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 Homeskape.com. 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.

TIPS OF THE WEEK

Mark: Simply, learn more about Nick. @NicholasCoriano, Homeskape.com and his holding company Homescapellc.com—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.

  

TIPS OF THE WEEK

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

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

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark talks with Land Geek coaches Chris Clark and Michael Warren.

Michael teamed up with Chris who crossed paths in the real estate world. They formed a partnership, Stratus Land, and are crushing it!

Chris bought an Airstream travel trailer and committed to living in it full time while travelling the country to check out land and work remotely.

Utilizing online tools and technology is just as productive as sitting next to each other in an office.

To work remotely you will need to:

  • Spend time to get all systems in place so you can automate as much as possible.
  • Map out a deal flow diagram. Identify a process for each individual step.
  • Get enough support. Focus more on system than process.

Chris and Michael are also working on a Due Diligence coaching course. It will be an incredible resource to help others approach research and due diligence—taking their business to the next level.

Can a partnership work virtually? Listen in to see how Chris and Michael make it work.

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk about creative marketing, wealth mentality, and shady real estate gurus.

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk about working diligently on achieving numbers, goals, and stretched targets.

You cannot slow down.

The only way to make money online is through the phone.

Starting out in the raw land investing business may be a little bit daunting for the newbies but you shouldn’t fear calling clients. The seller should know more about the property than you. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, it’s a good way for you to learn more about it. Feel confident in your abilities to negotiate the price on the property. You’re still the expert.

Listen in as Mark and Scott offer their wisdom for newbies (and you more experienced investor's are bound to learn something new as well!) and discover the one thing you should do!

 

TIP OF THE WEEK

Scott: Check out Audrey. It’s a cell phone app that allows you to edit pictures right from your phone. You can brighten your pictures, make the temperature cooler, and even change the shutter speed.

In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk about continuing the Deal Flow year round, because the machine doesn’t stop during the holidays. In today’s world, being responsive gives you a competitive advantage.

When people take the time to contact you, they may be perceived as tire kickers but they’re likely interested in something. Just like someone who goes to a car dealership. They wouldn’t be in the car lot if they weren’t interested in a car to begin with. These are the people you want to continually market to.

Building your buyers list takes time and it's important to give them great service.

You can leverage online platforms to solve an obscurity problem. Going out there and showing up on these platforms, like social media, make a difference. Showing up there and getting those successes will continue to motivate you to go to the next platform.

If they’re going to spend thousands of dollars, buyers want to know who you are. They want to see your face and hear your voice.

Listen in as Mark and Scott discuss these tips and other secrets they've discovered to making money online!

 

Tip of the week:

Mark: Check out Canva.com. And secondly, watch Impractical Jokers. This program has been around for four seasons now. It’s about four friends who make each other do pranks. I think it’s good training to help teach you to get out of your comfort zone of traditional social convention. By getting out of your comfort zone, you’ll be surprised by how far you can move the needle.

Scott:  I recommend Word Swag. It’s one of those apps that allows you to put in a picture and put some text in there and customize everything. I even used it to get my point across to my daughter. However, there’s a similar free app called Adobe Post.

Is there a magical equation for success?

In today’s episode, Mark and Scott talk about just that!

Success is only one part of your life and when the other parts are broken, it’s like driving on a flat tire. This episode dives deep into what makes a successful life & business, why embracing the suck is a good thing, fear, volunteering, purpose, and resilience.

It's time to live your why—if you haven't already, it's time to discover your purpose.

Remember this quote. If it’s to be, it’s up to me.

You can control everything in life. There’s always something you can do about the situation you’re in. There is an energy out there and we are all connected in some way and there is something bigger out there so embrace the force.

In today’s episode  Mark and Scott delve into marketing.

As sensationalistic as people may be, like Donald Trump, sometimes bad publicity is still publicity. Dan Kennedy even said, "if you’re not offending somebody everyday, you’re not working hard enough." That comes with a caveat, however. If you don’t do it right, your credibility could be at stake. You can come up with outrageous headlines that may bring traffic to your website but if you don’t deliver what you promised, you will lose followers. What you need to do is figure out how to break through the noise.

Your strategy should not alienate your audience.

Mark and Scott also talk about owning a house and being in real estate. Home ownership is at an all-time low and 50% of the renters are over 40 years old. Older adults are no longer buying homes; homes are no longer seen as an asset but a liability. With property tax and maintenance costs, homeowners could be a dying breed. As home ownership is going down, raw land becomes more valuable. 

Listen in and see why land is the greatest asset you can have!

In this episode, Mark Podolsky, the Land Geek, talks to the Land Geek coaches about getting ready for the new year—that's right, this episode was recorded in December—but the advice is always relevant!

Listen in as the coaches discuss what they've been up to; how 2015 went & what they expect 2016 to bring. Mark then talks about Grant Cardone’s The 10X Rule and how he's applying it to business and life. For Scott, it’s about having every component of your life performing at 100%. However, it’s really about finding balance between work and your family. 

The Land Geek coaches get real as they discuss goals, VAs, time management, and even how they celebrate after a big deal. Raw land has changed all of their lives in a BIG way!

Discover why the concept of scarcity mentality prevents you from being successful. With land investing, the market is so big that you will run out of money before you run out of deal flow. 

Also, get a sneak peek at what goes on at Bootcamp and how it can help you take your business to the next level!

In today’s episode of the Art of Passive Income, Mark Podolsky, the Land Geek, and Scott Todd of ScottTodd.net talk about their latest and greatest podcast, the Art of Passive Income. Listen in as Mark and Todd give an overview of what to expect from the Art of Passive Income podcast and finally leave your solo economic dependency behind!

Hear Scott's story and learn how he went from vice president of a Fortune 300 company to solo economic dependency in less than eighteen months.

While vice president of the Fortune 300 company, Scott watched CNBC’s Jim Kramer, railing against the CEO of the company Scott worked for. Long story short, the CEO resigned and was replaced by a new management team. At that time, Scott had everything in this company—his career, his stock, and his retirement. At that time, he had been working there for eight and a half years! When Scott realized his job was in jeopardy, he immediately took action to build his passive income using Mark's model and the Investor's Toolkit. Eventually, his department was replaced but at that point he was able to leave his solo economic dependency behind...it only took seventeen months and three days, a bit quicker than Mark, who was able to replace his income from his investment banking job in eighteen months.

It’s important for everyone to know that it’s possible to build passive income as long as you have the desire to do so. Passive income will allow you to protect yourself and your family and create the life you want. This podcast will help you identify the right passive income model for YOU. Since Mark and Scott won’t be limiting the discussion to passive income from land and real estate, it’s going to be an adventure for them. Episodes will be dedicated to helping listeners get out of their solo economic dependency. Guests will include experts on creating passive income within their models. Mark and Scott will also explore different ways to create side hustles that listeners can systematize, automate, and delegate.
