In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott talk with Land Geek alumnus, Mike Ferreira. Mike, who bought the Investor’s Toolkit in 2014 has been flying under the radar and silently crushing it in land investing ever since!
Mike, who was in the gold and silver business when he found The Land Geek program, bought the Toolkit and went through the lessons but didn’t fully commit himself to the business for another year. Once he decided to go all in, he left the precious metal business behind because he found that land was “easier, more fun, and more profitable”.
Listen in as Mike talks about his journey and the challenges he faced in setting up his land business on his own. He tells us that if he could do it all over again he would have invested in coaching.
If I had done coaching or if there was Flight School at the time, the learning curve to really rocking this business would have been so shortened. I probably would have made a quarter of a million dollars more than I have in that amount of time. So the investment would absolutely have been worth it to me.
Mike also shares:
- What he thinks about the competition
- What he learned from the gold and silver business that applies to land
- Deals—and why he prefers owner financing
Plus, he gives newbie advice for those who are just discovering the business and so much more!
Mike grew his passive income in land to exceed his fixed expenses… He works when he wants, where he wants and with whom he wants. So what does he do with all of his spare time?
He does MORE DEALS!
TIP OF THE WEEK
Mike: Check out SimpleTexting.com. It’s SMS texting where people will punch in and send a short code to a number and they get an automatic response and I can also do a blast just like an email blast to everybody’s phones for text messages. The open rate of a text message is way superior to email. I use it in conjunction with MapRight.com—an interactive mapping program. You can put interactive satellite maps on your website, but you can also send people links to the interactive map. And when you do so, they can open that link on their phone and download a free app which has the parcel outline of the property they’re looking at. It works in conjunction with the GPS on their phone. I use these two together.
Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
