This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Are you looking for a side hustle that will generate cash flow? Or, maybe you want to build a business on the side that can lead you to eventual freedom? Our guest may be able to help you with that.
Nick Loper from joins us to talk about side hustling your way to freedom so you can escape the rat race!
Nick is an entrepreneur that’s involved in a variety of projects but his main purpose in life is to help you earn more money, pay off debt, learn new skills, use your free time more productively, and escape the rat race.
Nick is also the host of the top-rated podcast, The Side Hustle Show, which focuses on ideas, actions, and results you need to start and grow a successful business.
He also wrote, The Progress Journal: A Simple Daily Planner To Make Meaningful Progress on Your Most Important Work which we talk about today. Find out why he wrote it and what his most important work is.
Plus, Nick talks about some of his favorite side hustles and breaks them down into three models:
  • Selling a service
  • Selling a product
  • Selling an audience
Is Affiliate Marketing Dead?
Scott brings up the subject and asks Nick if it’s dead because it’s “old and antiquated”.
Nick’s response?
You guys are selling dirt. That’s like the oldest business on the planet.
Touché Nick, touché.
The guys also discuss the one thing that could stop an aspiring entrepreneur dead in their tracks, and that is FEAR! Whether it’s fear to leave the comfort of a paycheck, or fear to scale, fear is what stops so many from fulfilling their entrepreneurial dreams as Scott points out in one case.
Nick also answers these questions:
  • What is the worst advice seen or heard in the Side Hustle world?
  • What were the steps that led into creating the Side Hustle Nation?
Then, poses a question back to Mark & Scott…
How do you justify spending time trying to build a business with limited hours that are supposed to be family time in the name of hopefully having more family time down the road?
Find out how they answered, and more, in this week’s episode of The Art of Passive Income!
In This Week's Round Table...
What are some of the mental blocks that stop people from moving to the next level in their land business?
Listen in as Mark and a small intimate team dig deep into those common mental blocks that are holding people back in this business.
Joining Mark are:
  • Scott Bossman
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
While there could be a number of reasons that stop people from progressing in their land business, the guys are going to talk about the most common reasons today, which are:
  • Believing in yourself
  • The one-in-one-out approach
  • The fear of being too late to the party
  • The fear of self-funding
Let’s dig into the one-in-one-out approach a little. This is where you buy one, then wait for it to sell before moving on to the next property. Why isn’t this a good approach?
One example…
Tate, who has spent the last three weeks recovering from a car accident talks about why he wasn’t worried about the money coming in while he was down because he has that passive income coming in every month… which is something that could not happen with the one-in-one-out approach.
It can also lead to burnout…
Scott Bossman recently talked to a gentlemen who is fairly new to the business. He has been in it for one year now and has done 80 deals, but only 2 were on terms. He is making cash on his deals, then redeploying it into more deals, but none of it is passive and he’s completely burned out because he has just created another job for himself.
Both of these examples make the on-going argument for Mark, that cash is not king when it comes to building that passive piece and why it’s crucial to set the systems up and have a portfolio of notes coming in every month.
Listen in as the guys dive deep into all of the reasons listed above and show you that the only thing holding you back from taking you business to the next level is YOU.
