The Land Geek Spotlight
This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Today’s guest became a financial planner at the worst time possible, in the midst of 2008 during the financial crisis, but it was watching the CPA he worked for at the time tell client after client that they lost half of their retirement that was the pivotal moment for him. 
Mark Willis is a Certified Financial Planner, a #1 Best Selling Author and the owner of Lake Growth Financial Services, a financial firm in Chicago, Illinois. Over the years, he has helped hundreds of his clients take back control of their financial future and build their businesses with sophisticated, tax-efficient financial solutions. 
As the co-host of Not Your Average Financial Podcast, Mark shares strategies for investing in real estate, paying for college without going broke and creating an income in retirement you will outlive. 
Mark works with people who want to grow their wealth in ways that are safe and predictable, become their own source of financing, and create tax-free income in retirement.
With Scott on vacation, join the two Marks as they delve deep into the self-banking system and explore:
  • The four most dangerous words in your financial vocabulary—do it for me
  • The lies about your 401k
  • The difference between rate of return and the rate of income and which is more important
  • What it means to go upstream financially
  • Why is self banking better than traditional bank
I think a lot of people are quoted misinformation. You could search this or read it in any magazine, that the market goes up 10 percent a year. So how is it possible that real investors are getting something closer to three, three and a half to 4 percent?
Listen in now as Mark Willis has us asking ourselves, “what do I want my money to do for me” and shows us how to invest the safe and predictable way, by Banking On Yourself!
In This Week's Round Table...
Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic with millions of people losing their jobs, and that’s in the U.S. alone, how is the land business faring?
Joining Mark for this week’s Round Table discussion are:
  • Erik Peterson
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Mike Zaino
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
As Mark goes around the table and asks the team how their businesses are holding up during this pandemic crisis, there were a few things that kept coming up…
  • We are really blessed
  • Grateful
  • Business as usual
And while our hearts go out to those who have lost their jobs, it truly makes us appreciate that we are in a business that has felt virtually no repercussion from the current crisis. And the stories are starting to come in from other community Land Geekers.
Tate just received a note from a UK investor who lost their job and now their sole income is the passive income coming in from land notes. Thankfully, it will be enough to get them through this hard time. 
This is the perfect umbrella for that rainy day that inevitably comes. That is why you pay the price to start a business that provides you passive income, for times like this. Whether it’s some type of pandemic, natural disaster, or company downturn. There are so many things in life, it really makes you appreciate just how we’re all skating on thin ice and we’re so vulnerable to so many things out of our control.”
Then, the team talks about how they are staying sane during this time and then shares their…

  • Tate - Tiger King (Tate needs to know, did Carol do it?)
  • Erik - Jack Ryan season 2

Coming Up On The Next Round Table...

Thanks to Brad Donze for posting this in The Official Motivation & Wealth Creation group this week. We can all use the humor right now but on the same token, he has a good point. It is a good time to buckle down and dig deep into the courses.
And if you’ve been on the fence about taking the leap, now is the time! Not only has the land community been virtually unaffected by the slowing economy, we have actually seen an increase in sales!
It’s a great time to start building your passive income.
Schedule a call with Scott Bossman or Mike Zaino to talk about your best options!
