Bill Watterson Comic Excerpt

Several years ago, I stumbled across this piece from ZenPencils and thought it was BRILLIANT.

As someone who moonlighted for years as a part-time real estate investor before finally quitting my job to be my own boss, this little comic strip (created by one of my all-time favorite authors growing up) spoke to me on a deep level. If your employment situation is anything like the vast majority of part-timers out there, I think it will strike a chord with you too.

Bill Watterson gives us an encouraging reminder that there are plenty of people in the world who do what they must so they can do what they love.

Take a few minutes and check this out – I think you’ll enjoy it…

Need Help In Your Land Business?

When you're getting started in a new business venture like buying and selling vacant land, there are a lot of things to learn about how to find deals, research properties and get them sold quickly for a profit.

A mentoring relationship isn't always necessary for everyone to get started. Some people have everything it takes to figure it out on their own. It's not a question of whether they'll succeed… it’s just a matter of how long it will take to get there.

This is where a good coach and mentor can be a game-changer because they can shave a significant amount of time off your learning curve, which can have an invaluable impact on your business and life - getting you to your financial goals much faster.

If you want to jump start your business and significantly shorten your learning curve, we can help with that!

For a limited time, we are accepting new coaching clients in our land education program. Submit your application here if you're interested!
