T- Thoughts
Values are like fingerprints. Nobodies are the same but you leave them all over everything you do.” Elvis Presley
Once your land business begins to grow beyond you and you start taking on the CEO role, you start to think deeply about the values you want to pass on to your team.
An example of a great value statement is from a little company you may have heard of… Google.
Here it is– Google Values
Some of my favorites are:
Great just isn’t good enough.
You can make money without doing evil.
Fast is better than slow.
It’s best to do one thing really, really well.
Focus on the user and all else will follow.
For Land Geek, Frontier Properties, and GeekPay I have 9 simple values that I share with our team to create a shared culture and something that could live beyond me.
Not to bore you with all 9, but feel free to use them yourself for building your own culture:
Judgment
Communication
Impact
Curiosity
Innovation
Courage
Passion
Honesty
Selflessness
I then define what each of these values means to me and how the consequences of a value being violated.
Brilliant jerks don’t serve a culture well even when they bring tremendous value. The reason being, we can’t take anything with us in life. We own none of it. In 3 generations we most likely won’t even be remembered, but the one thing that can live beyond us is our values to the next generation. So all that “value” is really worthless if it doesn’t support your core values.
Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” Mahatma Gandhi

This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
On this week’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott welcome professional actor and land investor, Paul Flanagan II to the show.
Episode Notes
Paul Flanagan II is a professional actor who has over 20 years of experience. He is famously known for his appearances in Amazing Stories, 90 Feet from Home, and Your Honor. Paul is also a flight school graduate who has been doing phenomenal in the land business since graduating in December 2018. 
Paul’s interest in land investing began after listening to a podcast where Mark appeared as a guest. Having piqued his interest, Paul bought a copy of Mark’s book Dirt Rich and by its directives, he enrolled in flight school. Almost three years later, land investing continues to play an important role in Paul’s success with acting and other areas of his life.
Listen in as they discuss:
  • Paul’s journey as an actor and land investor.
  • Generating passive income as an actor and as a land investor.
  • How land investing can give you more time to focus on other areas of your life.
