Mark: My tip of the week is the best tip of the week, Peter has been kind and generous enough to offer us a free book. Just go to petersfreebook.com, read the book and start learning about these options and how you can profit from it.

Scott: Check out this website called Elocance. What it does is it takes your reading list, it turns whatever you want to read into a podcast like an audio version of it.

Peter: One of the skills that I teach my students and has been very helpful to me in my 30 years of investing is being able to create a connection either with brokers or property owners, to quickly create rapport. There’s a book available called Instant Rapport by Michael Brooks, I believe it’s still available on Amazon. Great little study guide on how to get up speed on creating rapport quickly. The other thing is, right now is an amazing time to get going investing in Real Estate whether in commercial properties or investing in land. Let’s face it when you’re in quarantine and you’re home you got a lot of time to focus on something new. People right now are at home and available to answer emails and phone, it’s easy to get hold of people. Get out there, pick a strategy or method of teacher and start taking some steps.

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