Investing Podcasts – King of Automation with Mark Podolsky
All hail the king of automation Mark Podolsky! Mark is on a quest to teach the art of buying and selling raw land. What was so outstanding about this interview was the specific details Mark gave us about automation. You will hear how Mark scaled his business by building a team and creating systems that handled all the work that could possibly be delegated away. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the king!
“I was working as an investment banker specializing in mergers and acquisitions. It was miserable. My commute was 45 min to the office and back, I was micro-managed, it was high pressure, high stress, and long hours. It was so bad for me that I would get the Sunday blues on Friday because I knew the weekend was going to fly by. My firm happened to hire a guy who started telling me about how he makes money buying raw land. He was making a 300% return on his investments. I didn’t believe him until I started buying raw land myself.
HOW HAS YOUR BUSINESS EVOLVED
“After getting through the housing crash, I realized I don’t know what I don’t know. That made me humble enough to start seeking out mentors. That’s when I started building systems and automation and really making it a big business. I used to do it all myself, but now I work 2 hours a week in frontier property. I can do that because we are 90% automated.”
WHAT’S YOUR WHY
“I have already accomplished my initial why of getting out of my soul sucking investment banking job. But after 10 years of buying land I was starting to get an itch for a new challenge, nobody really thanks you for selling them land. Now that I started teaching people how to do what I have done, people like Rachel Muler and Shawn Rickman have made enough money to travel the world doing this business. My why now is helping people get rid of that big bucket of stress called money.”
