This week on the podcast, Scott and I talk about embracing the suck again…there are always setbacks and it’s best to be prepared to handle them.
We’re also celebrating with a student this week, scroll down to watch a new testimonial video.
And if you haven’t signed up for Bootcamp yet, what are you waiting for?!

This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk about the path to success and how it’s not such a straight line. They discuss the sucky parts of the business, setbacks and how to overcome them, recent deals and their experience with defaults.
Everybody goes through rough patches no matter what business you’re in, but how do you overcome those obstacles? Scott’s advice is to focus on the things that you can control, not those that you can’t.
A few things you can control are:
  •   County Research
  •   How many offers you make
  •   Due Diligence
  •   Customer Service
  •   Marketing
  •   Closing Process
Listen in…this episode is packed full of tips!
While many investors are comfortable coming up with a price they’d be willing to pay for a house, they aren’t quite as familiar with purchasing raw land. Mark goes over how he calculates and presents an offer so that his ROI is massive.

Inspiration from this week…
David says: I am 31 years old. Advice I would give my 21 year old self:
Stop saying you just go with the flow in life! Design the life you want and it will happen!
Advice my future 41 year old self would give me right now:
Prioritize. Being excited about too many things can be a distraction. Focus on just one thing per day to improve your life.
