In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, we are diving deep into a student success story. Jon & Valari Burnett—Jon, with a full-time job managing 4 businesses and Valari with 2 kids under 2 at home… one a newborn, jumped straight into Flight School in July of 2017 and then on to coaching from there. By the end of March 2018, Jon was able to quit his full-time job and go ALL IN working on their business from home allowing him to spend more time with Valari and their children.
How did they grow so quickly with such a busy schedule? With desire, ambition, grit… and the attitude of, “If they can do it, so can we!”
The Burnetts accredit their success to the accountability of first Flight School and then their coach, Erik “butt-kicker” Peterson pushing them to keep moving forward when they wanted to slow down.
Join us as Jon & Valari share their journey, from trying other niches to finding The Land Geek program and are now crushing it in the land business!
With time freedom as their why, Jon and Valari worked hard in the beginning, devoting every spare minute to the business. Their busy schedule comprised of getting up at 5:00 a.m. to do follow-ups and ads, then Jon worked on marketing during his lunch breaks, Valari worked on client leads during the kids naps, and then working together in the evenings after putting the kids to bed in that short period before they went to bed themselves.
Listen in as the Burnetts delve into:
- How Flight School and coaching helped them
- How they got out of the rat race quicker by increasing cash flow while decreasing expenses
- The importance of knowing your why
Flight School provided life support and accountability. It was so practical and straightforward, with every single session we would be like, “Are you kidding me!? They just gave us so many systems that we would have to trial and error for years.” We’re paying less than a college education for a chance at financial freedom for the rest of our lives.
They also talk deals:
- First deal and how long it took to get there
- Best and worst deal all in one!
The advice the Jon and Valari give to those stuck in the rat race who want to escape it by duplicating their success—just start doing something and get educated.
They explain that education is one of the most important factors in being successful. They look at this business as a franchise, instead of starting new and learning by trial and error you already have a successful proven system in place that is given to you, making your success rate much higher, you just have to put in the work.
We didn’t want to create our own system, we wanted to find a system that already works and then plug and play. We wanted to learn from other’s mistakes as much as possible, rather than relying on ourselves to make the mistakes to educate ourselves.
Jon and Valari are proving that with a little hard work and determination, The Land Geek model will put you on the road to financial freedom, you just have to take action, set your pace, and keep moving forward.
This is possible and so worth the hard work. It’s not a magic bullet… although in a way it is because it’s a plug and play system, but you have to be willing to put the work into it and take action.
This can’t miss episode is jammed pack full of value, advice, inspiration, and motivation!
