Building passive income is the path to authentic financial freedom. That’s why I was excited to welcome Mark Podolski, a.k.a The Land Geek to talk about how he has built his passive-income-generating business.
After being successful at buying and selling raw land, Mark left his deeply dissatisfying job. Mark was drawn to the fact that buying and selling land doesn’t require dealing with tenants or managing property renovations.
The business today
The process Mark uses to build passive income is simple now that he has built systems, automated processes, and software to manage the business and to help his clients. He joked he could write a new bestseller: “The 2-hour workweek.”
Podcasts for business growth
Mark has built an engaged audience of potential clients through his 3 podcasts: The Best Passive Income Model, the Land Geek Podcast, and the Art of Passive Income Podcast with Scott Todd, where I had the pleasure to be a guest. He gets to meet successful entrepreneurs, build authority, and grow his business at the same time.
His revenue model includes his land investing business, his automated CRM software, and “Land Geek,” his way to improve people’s lives.
Mark created Land Geek because of his desire to leave a legacy instead of exclusively running a profit-generating business. “Land investing is great, but no land investor has written to me to say, Mark, you’ve changed my life.” Now, he’s securing his financial future and making a difference.
Systems and productivity
Mark emphasizes the importance of creating systems in your business. “If a task takes me 5 minutes to do it, I’ll invest 30 times that to teach somebody to take over that process so I can get rid of that 5-min task for the rest of my life,” he says.
He also organizes his tasks in batches for added productivity. That has allowed him to take 2 days off a week to enjoy the lifestyle he desires. “I want to look back at my life and say I did what I really wanted to do.”
Mark’s passive income model allows entrepreneurs break free from solo economic dependency. The goal: to work because you want to, not because you have to.
Listen to the conversation to learn how Mark’s land buying and selling system works, and get his insights on how to systematize your business processes so that managing your business becomes simple and effective!
Mark’s favorite quote
If the next 3-5 years you do what most people won’t do, you’ll be able to do for the rest of your life what other people can’t do.
