In this first recorded episode of 2020, the gang's all back together and ready to discuss their newbie expectations when first starting out in the land business and what the reality really was.

Joining Mark are:

  • Tate Litchfield
  • Mike Zaino
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Erik Peterson
  • Scott Bossman
  • Scott Todd

Everybody comes into this business with some sort of expectations, whether it’s with high hopes of getting rich quick or cautious optimism, I think I’ll dip a toe in and see if I can do this.

The question is, what is the actual reality?

Team Land Geek is going to share their reality with you today.

In short:

Mimi—Thought there would be more cash sooner

Mike—Just wanted to make enough to pay off debt but didn’t expect what really happened

Erik—Very optimistic but then the sales didn't come

Scott B—Approached with caution

Tate—Underestimated the amount of work required

Scott T—Thought they would be knocking down the door with accepted offers

And Mark, well, he had to come to terms that he couldn’t go through life buying everything .25 cents on the dollar!

The reality is—this is not a get rich quick plan! This model is simple, but it’s not easy and it’s not going to happen overnight. You’re setting up a business and that takes time and effort.

So take the time you need to set up your systems and a good team of VA’s that will ultimately take tasks off your plate giving you that time freedom you seek.

GRITGrit is passion and perseverance for long-term and meaningful goals. It is the ability to persist in something you feel passionate about and persevere when you face obstacles.

Mimi, who is the epitome of Grit, reads the definition and the importance of having it in this business. And, Mike comes up with an acrostic for GRIT…





Listen in now to find out all the details of the team’s expectations vs. reality and how they overcame the obstacles… you just might find you can relate to one of them!
