This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Paul Moore, joins us on The Art of Passive Income to share valuable insight on which real estate investments make the most sense.
Paul is currently the managing director of two commercial real estate funds at Wellings Capital.
Paul, who graduated from Ohio State with an Engineering degree and an MBA, left the Ford Motor Company after five years to start a staffing company with a partner in which they had scaled and then sold to a publicly traded firm five years later.
After a brief retirement, in 2000, Paul entered the real estate sector to protect and grow his own wealth.
He has since flipped over 50 homes, 25 high-end waterfront lots, appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters, rehabbed and managed dozens of rental properties, built a number of new homes, developed a subdivision, and started two successful online real estate marketing firms.
Paul is also the author of The Perfect Investment – Create Enduring Wealth from the Historic Shift to Multifamily Housing. And, he also co-hosts a wealth-building podcast called, How to Lose Money.
Paul Moore is a big deal! 
Listen in as Paul talks about why he came out of retirement to start investing in real estate and dives into the lessons he has learned in those 20 years as an investor. 
“If you keep playing double or nothing with all of your capital, you’re going to land on nothing at some point and you’ll have to start over.”
Paul does a deep dive into commercial real estate and unlike residential, where the market dictates the housing values, commercial is based on a value formula which Paul shares with us today along with specific things you can do to force appreciation.
We also discuss: 
  • Why Paul titled his podcast, How To Lose Money
  • The best asset class for new investors
  • Finding access to commercial opportunities
Paul also addresses the stigma behind mobile home parks and why it’s important to have a recipe to follow and get to a place where we’re willing to deal with, survive and thrive with the monotony of boredom.
In This Week's Round Table...
Get ready for another Grill The Geek session on this week’s Round Table discussion!
Listen in as the team puts the spotlight on an old school ‘OG’ geek who bought the Investor’s Toolkit back in late 2015 and has been chiseling away at his business ever since.
Joining Mark for this student Q&A are:
  • Erik Peterson
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Scott Bossman
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
…and our special geeky guest, Drew Kurianowicz!
Drew talks about his beginnings and how he went from running his land business as more of a hobby during the first 2 years to getting serious the third, and ultimately growing his business to a staggering 25k a month in passive… a net worth of 15 million, all while working a full-time job!
Drew eventually did quit his job last November when he and his wife welcomed their first son into the world. He is now a stay at home Dad and he couldn’t imagine it any other way.
The team then digs in to extract all of the secrets to Drew’s success. Find out the details, including:
  • How he turn it around in the third year
  • Recommendations for people who only have the Investor’s Toolkit
  • The mental aspect of the game
  • The number of counties he went through before he found one that spoke to him
  • How much financing he took to scale his business
  • Fixed expenses
  • His favorite deal which was a pivotal moment in his business
  • His favorite marketing platform
  • Advice for someone who wants to build a successful land business with limited time
…and of course, the ever pressing question, Mac or PC?
“Limited time is all in your minds. If you want something, you’re going to make time…”
Mark also wanted to give Mike Zaino the opportunity to ask Drew a question as well, but he was sitting on the beaches of Punta Cana at the time closing deals, so Mark channeled his inner Mike… despite the protests from the team, and asks Drew what he would do differently if he could start over again. 
Drew also talks about how he found motivation in a sticky note with Scott Todd’s name on it. And, he also found it in the quote “If you’re willing to do for the next 3-5 years what most people won’t do, you’ll be able to do for the rest of your life what other people can’t do.”
You’ve got to make a sacrifice for 3-5 years, to change things for the rest of your life. There’s no easy way around that.”
Drew’s story is an inspirational one. He grew his business to 25k a month using only the Investor’s Toolkit by staying dedicated, consistent and methodically chipping away at it. You’re not going to want to miss his story!
“There were little nuggets that came out of both Bootcamp’s that have made me hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
Then, have land sales suffered due to the global pandemic, the Coronavirus? 
Listen in to the bonus material to see if the team has noticed a decline in sales… all in this week’s episode of The Land Geek Round Table!

What If Your Life Depended on Making a Land Sale?
 How quickly do you think you could make that happen?
So, our Flight School student Andrea Miller messages me about how much inventory she has and how frustrated she feels about how slow her properties are selling. 
She is a busy Mom of 3 kids under 5 years old. She was doing everything within her power, so she thought, to market those properties effectively… 
So, like any good coach I motivated her and made her accountable.  
I said, “Andrea, you have one week to sell these properties. If you don’t, then, Dylan (your handsome husband) has to shave his head!”  
She agreed, quickly listed her properties on Facebook and our Facebook group. Here are the results…
The moral of the story, we can all sell property if our life or our quality of life is dependent on it. You’ll work harder than you ever thought possible and see opportunities you never saw before.  
This is the power of mentorship and coaching. We provide focus and accountability. If you haven’t applied for one on one coaching to accelerate your results just click the link below.
