This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Today’s guest, Jay Conner is known as The Private Money Authority, and he is here to teach us his “no ask” approach to raising money from private lenders for real estate investments.
Jay grew up in the mobile home industry. His father was the largest retailer of manufactured homes in the nation up until the late 80s.
Jay, however, transitioned into single family homes and has been a full-time real estate investor now for over 15 years. He used banks for his financing the first 6 years, but when the banks cut off his line of credit during the financial crisis in 2008/09, he had to find a new source of funding… which turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as he was introduced to private money lending.
In less than 90 days he raised over 2 million dollars. His average profits last year were $67,000 per deal.
Join us as Jay divulges why his profits are so big, plus:
  • How much of his own money he uses
  • How he finds the lenders
  • The difference between private and hard money
  • The worst advice he’s seen given
  • What comes first… the deal or the private money
Jay also shares his 5-step process to the quickest way to raise a lot of money… all without asking!
Will this approach work with land?
Jay says it will and that land investors shouldn’t be missing out on deals because they don’t have the funding.
There are also other options to locking up a property that we teach here at The Land Geek, but Jay gives us a lot to think about on today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income!

In This Week's Round Table...
When you’re first getting started in this business it’s necessary for you to do all angles of the business yourself, both for knowledge and financial reasons.
But, as your business starts to take off how do you let go of the mindset of wanting to do everything yourself and change it to embrace automation, delegation, elimination, and systematization?
In this week’s Round Table discussion, join Mark and Team Geek:
  • Erik Peterson
  • Aaron Williams
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
…as they share their knowledge and insight of knowing when and how to let go so you can start living the life you want.
One of the most tragic things that happen is the entrepreneurial paradox, where they quit their 40 hour a week job to work 80 hours in their own business. How is that a good trade-off? -Mark
Plus. the team starts us off with a look inside Scottsdale Bootcamp. Did Bootcamp magic once again wave its wand over Arizona?
