This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Are you a real estate investor who is coming up short on funds needed to close the deal on that great opportunity knocking at your door?
Our guest today, Bruce Mack, is a professional real estate investor who has done over 102 million in transactions and has been a licensed financial advisor for over two decades.
Bruce discovered that there is a big hole in the funding boat when he saw real estate people coming up short on their funding and were losing out on deals. So he founded Platinum Financing Group to plug that hole.
Platinum Financing offers a variety of unique finance solutions and he’s going to talk about some of those solutions today.
Bruce, who says there are few asset classes they won’t work with, starts us off by going over two critical pain points—getting funded when you’re first starting out and then protecting your funds.
Listen in as we go over:
  • The various programs offered
  • Why corporate credit is not a workable solution for real estate investors
  • How not to be classified as a dealer
Then, find out what Bruce uncovered on his search for the holy grail of trusts as he does a deep dive into trusts and the program, Asset Protection Tax Mitigation Trust.
Specifically with asset protection, it’s bulletproof in as much no lien or judgment could ever be executed against an individual or against the trust.
Are LLCs a viable source of protection?
The answer and so much more on today’s valuable and informative episode of The Art of Passive Income!
In This Week's Round Table...
Scaling your business is a vital part of the process to create passive income through the niche of raw land investing.
And in order to scale, you will need to create a bulletproof system that will allow you the freedom to work on the business, not in the business.
So, how do you create a bulletproof system with your VA team?
Joining Mark to answer that question are:
  • Erik Peterson
  • Scott Bossman
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Mike Zaino
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
Listen in as Team Geek goes over their own processes and how they put together a good team of VA’s and built their bulletproof systems. They offer sage advice, share tech tools along with:
  • Running a litmus test before it goes to the VA
  • Creating systems that can hold up if a VA quits
  • Recognizing a good VA and more!
To sum up it up…
Know how to do the processes yourself before passing them off to someone else. Then map them out, hire well, cross train, and keep an open line of communication! Make sure your VAs see the big picture and what their role is in it. It also helps to break up the work into smaller micro-tasks.
Then, Mike gets his spirit animal! Find out what it is and why it’s a perfect fit for him!
Plus, the team takes a vote on reclining your seat on a plane, is it your right or just plain rude? It’s almost a unanimous verdict!
