On this week’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott welcome serial investor and entrepreneur Jerome Maldonado to the show.
Jerome Maldonado is a serial investor and entrepreneur. He started his professional journey in traditional businesses where he was first introduced to team building, sales techniques, and real estate concepts. In 1998, Jerome pioneered a new construction company which he took to seven figures, in less than one year.

After years of hard work with minimal return, Jerome has built an eight-figure empire and has mentored people from around the world in sales, real estate, and business. Over the course of his career, Jerome has founded multiple highly successful businesses. Additionally, he is the founder of several other corporations and an investor and equity owner in several diverse companies and industries. Today, Jerome is excited to bring over 20 years of professional experience to the world’s business owners and entrepreneurs.

TIP OF THE WEEK
Mark: My tip of the week is going to change your life, go to Jeromemaldonado.com and learn more. Check out the courses, the speaking; you’ll get smarter, tenacious, and be a better marketer.
Scott: Check out this book, this is especially great for people who are overthinkers, it’s Dream First, Details Later: How to Quit Overthinking & Make It Happen by Ellen Marie Bennett.
Jerome: One of my favorite books is by Scott Alexander called Rhinoceros Success, it’s a book I read over 25 years ago. What I like about Scott Alexander is he’s very straightforward, straight to the point —real blunt. He talks about the difference between being a rhino or being a cow, and he compares it today, he uses that as an analogy. But then, he also talks a lot about faith, and I think the biggest takeaway from everything is, without faith you can’t get anything done in life. It really is through the means of faith that keeps me going. Without faith, you can’t level success to where you get to without it.
