The Final Preparations Have Begun
We are in the final 2 week’s before we pack up and head to Vegas for 3 days of fun and intense learning. There is still time and a couple of seats left if you would like to attend. But don’t hesitate, REGISTER NOW before the books are closed.  
This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Mark and Scott talk with Paul Jarvis—a designer, author, teacher, software creator, and podcaster. He’s written 4 books and is currently working on his fifth book called, Company of One which is due to be released early 2019. It’s about how companies can be better without being bigger.
Paul has built several software companies, and has taught over 10,000 students through his online courses—Creative Class, Chimp Essentials and Grow Your Audience. He hosts two podcasts: Sunday Dispatches and Invisible Office Hours and has worked with big companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, and Warner Music. His work has appeared in Fast Company, CNBC, Forbes, Newsweek, BuzzFeed, Lifehacker!
Paul believes that bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to business growth. He explains that there is a balance that needs to happen and you shouldn’t try to grow if it doesn’t make sense.
Growth is fine as long as it’s questioned. As long as it makes sense, like the checks and balances of growth. If that makes sense to you, then grow in whichever means necessary.
How do we step back and figure out individually what makes us happy and what is enough?
It all comes down to introspection. Paul explains that it’s the most important thing. “Introspection comes from looking at consistency because that’s where the truth lies.”
Paul digs in and shows us why we should grow our businesses better, not bigger. Plus, we explore:
  • The truth of suffering
  • The lost art of the ability to focus
And is there such a thing as an overnight success?
Paul explains that we typically don’t see what led up to that success story. It could have taken 15 years of fails before finally getting that one big win and we shouldn’t compare our own success to that one tiny spec we see. 
Listen in for all the details!

In This Week's Round Table...
Joining Mark today are:
  • Cynthia Tripathi
  • Erik Peterson
  • Aaron Williams
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
This week we delve deep into potential problems that may arise in this business, though rare, they do happen and costs may transpire—specifically, trash cleanup.
Tate starts us off with the infamous squatter incident that was mentioned in an earlier Round Table last year. Thought he had resolved that issue? So did Tate, until last week…
And remember Aarons story where the buyers are living on the property in a trailer committing crimes, causing havoc and are habitually late on payments? He’s still dealing with them, only they are getting further behind to the point where they pay just hours before the default deadline. It’s leading him to believe that default is inevitable and wondering what to expect from there. Will he be sharing a squatter/trash cleanup story with us soon?
We debate whether it’s better to put restrictions the contract to get better buyers. In doing so you’re minimizing the headaches but shrinking the buying pool and losing out on potential revenue generated from late fees and defaults.
Or, do you take a gamble and set no restrictions then deal with any problems that may occur? Any unforeseen costs, even in the worst case scenario, pales in comparison to the costly problems of tenants, termites, and toilets! It’s a lot less expensive to clean up trash left on a property, than a house that someone has trashed.
And finally, Cynthia gives us a case of Deal or No Deal!
