Trading Dirt For Paychecks—It Doesn’t Get More Simple Than Land

With this business being 90% automated, we have a lot of free time on our hands… should we feel guilty about it?

Scott Todd takes the helm as team geek talks about SURVIVOR’S GUILT in this week’s Round Table discussion!

Join Scott and this week’s cast of geeks:

  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Aaron Williams
  • Erik Peterson
  • Scott Bossman
  • Tate Litchfield

…as they answer these questions:

  • What did your Monday look like?
  • Have you ever had survivors guilt and if so, how do you get over it?
  • Should we be working harder?
  • Do you feel weird when people ask what you do?

Mimi—when she was working her 9-5 she wouldn’t get a break at all because someone was always needing something from her but now she takes time to stop and smell the roses… and pull a few weeds.

And still now, even on a leisurely day, Mimi still works on the business from her laptop… but with her feet kicked up.

Erik—Survivor’s guilt for Erik is when he sees his peers working their 9-5’s and are unable to attend their kids functions

Aaron—Went for a motorcycle ride to look for a cheesecake factory… NO guilt there! 

Scott B—A busy day for him consists of working 2-3 hours at Panera Bread. And a leisure day is spent on the deck with his feet kicked up and an iced coffee in hand, waiting for that wire on a cash sale to come through, with his dog by his side.

Tate—Someone hold his beer while he reels one in! He feels the guilt when he rides his bike over the freeway every morning and sees the bumper to bumper traffic, but he offsets that guilt by feeding the homeless. And, Tate admits that he is now broken and unemployable, thanks to land.

This topic all came about because Scott Todd spent all day Monday by the pool relaxing and reading a book! He completely shut the world out and lived in his own cocoon… and he was ok with that until about 3:30 when the guilt sat in.

So the question is, should we feel that survivor’s guilt? It’s the lifestyle we chose and built, so how do we overcome the guilt feelings associated with kicking back and enjoying life?

When you have that passive income that we create, you can create the lifestyle you want.

And, did Aaron ever find the Cheesecake Factory?

Listen in for all the answers on today’s Round Table episode…


Mimi: Check out the website TopoView for maps dated back to the 1800’s up to the present. If you click on the word ‘show’ it will put the old map and you can move the transparency bar up and down to see how it changes over time.

Isn’t it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
