A Talk With My First Mentor, Joel Salatin

Written by

Went down to Virgina and spent time with my first mentor Joel Salatin. We shared stories of my time on his farm.

We went out and surveyed the 96 acres of farm land I just purchased in Virgina. A long-term real estate investment. It has a log cabin from the 1830’s and a beautiful pond.

How can you make more money?

Number One, create your own business. Even if it’s part time and you already have another career. Never rely on only one stream of income.

Number Two, take some of the profits and invest them in real estate.

I have been a part-time investor in real estate. Because I have been working full time in business to create the cash flow to invest in real estate.

  • WOW this is my favorite video now!

  • really nice video man, I just didn't like that at your speech you were standing up like an authority, I think you could just sit down and express like a normal person and have a conversation not a monologue. I think an interaction and showing that you care about others opinion on the table too.

  • Pet-peeve when folks list things in letters and switch to numbers. A. its cooler so they don't blossom as earlier, #2 it doesn't change as much from morning to night during the day.

  • "100 an acre for 600 acres, that's $600,000" No, not exactly…

    • Garrett Smith they could have been talking about something else, like wtf is 100 an acre. What does that even mean. Its certainly not dollars bc an acre of land is much more than 100 bucks

    • true it just sounded funny to me

      Garrett Smith May 22, 2017 1:39 PM Reply
    • Garrett Smith 100 profit per month per acre is roughly 600,000 per year. Adding two zeros is an easy way way to guesstimate annual profits quickly.

    • HkLY45 nope that'd be 720,000

    • Obviously it was in the context that they were talking about thousands of dollars as an entity, not just dollars.

  • Investing in real estate right now is not a good idea. You are taking a risk that the real estate bubble will pop. It is a hard asset but we have the biggest bubble right now like we did in 2008 except it's now bigger than ever and ready to pop thanks to the money printing and low interest rates.

  • @tai lopez, I end up seeing your adds video after video on youtube. Normally that happening really irritates viewers esp myself. However yours are just different somehow. They tend to draw my attention to the point I forget about hitting the skip button. What I'm trying to say is you do a great job at public speaking. No I haven't tried your program, just seen the ads. Probably would if I was in a position to put it to use, or even pay for it for that matter. So I can't say if it works or not, to others reading this. However, I believe its worth a try. Worse case scenario you waste a few bucks that you would of wastred anyway. Only this time atleast you'll be better a public speaking. Like I said, I haven't tried it, but how you deal with others and the attitude you present seems tobe key factors and i learned that just from the adds.
