In this episode of Cash Flow Pro, we talk with Brent Bowers for the second time. Brent is the founder of The Land Sharks, an advanced training program that teaches you how to build a passive income. After eight years of Army service, he found it challenging to be home while providing for his family. Eventually, Brent found an answer to his problem – real estate. His goal was to create financial, time, and geographic freedom. Well, he succeeded! He discovered a way to bring in that cash flow; we love hearing it. 

 

In the first episode, we covered purchasing land, ethics in real estate, and more!

 

But in this episode, we dive deep into the importance of discipline and pacing yourself. Some points we cover are:

 

  • Obstacles business owners face every day
  • The reality of procrastination
  • Creating your possibilities
  • Connecting on personal levels
  • Finding the right mindset and creating a profitable service
  • Transparency

 

Tune in on this episode to find out more!

 

Find your flow,

Casey Brown

15
00:03:29,550 --> 00:03:32,775

when we would sleep in the field for

16
00:03:32,875 --> 00:03:35,740
[brent_bowers_]: like weeks at a time so i
guess we kind of kind of was homeless

17
00:03:35,780 --> 00:03:40,047
[brent_bowers_]: but there was no bridge to stop
the rain and stuff now but you know

18
00:03:40,588 --> 00:03:43,954
[brent_bowers_]: that was it was season in my
life though eight and a half years in

19
00:03:43,994 --> 00:03:48,401
[brent_bowers_]: the military i loved every second of
it until i didn't love it anymore and

20
00:03:48,461 --> 00:03:52,888
[brent_bowers_]: that was when i realized it's like
you're always gone man you're always away how

21
00:03:52,929 --> 00:03:55,293
[brent_bowers_]: are you supposed to a family how
are you get supposed to have a wife

22
00:03:56,675 --> 00:04:01,483
[brent_bowers_]: that that feels loved and respected if
you're never ever ever home and i watch

23
00:04:01,583 --> 00:04:06,631
[brent_bowers_]: so many families just melt away in
the military you know just because of the

24
00:04:06,692 --> 00:04:11,640
[brent_bowers_]: fact that it's hard to have a
marriage it's hard to show our children our

25
00:04:11,660 --> 00:04:17,089
[brent_bowers_]: children love and just the fact that
we're there for them if we're always gone

26
00:04:17,810 --> 00:04:21,356
[brent_bowers_]: so i watched so many divorces and
i ended up happened happening to me as

27
00:04:21,416 --> 00:04:27,947
[brent_bowers_]: well so people are usually running towards
pleasure or away from pain and that's their

28
00:04:27,987 --> 00:04:33,977
[brent_bowers_]: two motivations mine is away from pain
like i would work harder to avoid pain

29
00:04:34,438 --> 00:04:38,625
[brent_bowers_]: than to gain pleasure any day of
the week so i had a huge pain

30
00:04:38,725 --> 00:04:45,416
[brent_bowers_]: point i was always gone always away
always training and my children were never getting

31
00:04:45,456 --> 00:04:48,401
[brent_bowers_]: to see me like at night and
my wife there was no time for her

32
00:04:48,542 --> 00:04:52,508
[brent_bowers_]: either um and my pain point was
i had already been through a divorce once

33
00:04:53,260 --> 00:04:58,949
[brent_bowers_]: from you know just being away so
i wanted to build a financial fortress around

34
00:04:59,029 --> 00:05:02,976
[brent_bowers_]: me and my family that nothing can
ever get through and that's how i came

35
00:05:03,056 --> 00:05:08,385
[brent_bowers_]: upon you know land investing in timately
gave me cash flow and i love your

36
00:05:08,425 --> 00:05:13,193
[brent_bowers_]: hat cash flow pro because at the
end of the day do i still have

37
00:05:13,694 --> 00:05:18,381
[brent_bowers_]: you know money problems from time to
time yes because i ometimes bite off more

38
00:05:18,422 --> 00:05:22,308
[brent_bowers_]: than i can chew or i'll buy
two big big of a parcel of land

39
00:05:22,468 --> 00:05:27,537
[brent_bowers_]: or we'll have seven flips going on
plus an apartment complex plus thirty four town

40
00:05:27,617 --> 00:05:33,365
[brent_bowers_]: home builds and there might sometimes be
more bills or contractors needing money than what

41
00:05:33,405 --> 00:05:38,135
[brent_bowers_]: i've got to pay but here's what's
cool every single month those land payments come

42
00:05:38,215 --> 00:05:43,264
[brent_bowers_]: in lampin coming it re charges that's
right and if i would just slow down

43
00:05:43,324 --> 00:05:45,327
[brent_bowers_]: sometimes i'd let it charge up a
little bit longer

44
00:06:02,760 --> 00:06:07,528
[brent_bowers_]: that's so crazy just to know that
michael jackson had had you know some days

45
00:06:07,568 --> 00:06:11,254
[brent_bowers_]: where there was money issues and all
as i'm saying is like i listened to

46
00:06:11,315 --> 00:06:15,482
[brent_bowers_]: so many podcastand so many gores out
there and i don't think guru i'm just

47
00:06:15,542 --> 00:06:19,408
[brent_bowers_]: a guy that built a land business
that supports me and my family and others

48
00:06:19,468 --> 00:06:24,276
[brent_bowers_]: and allows me time freedom and financial
freedom but do i still have challenges in

49
00:06:24,336 --> 00:06:28,764
[brent_bowers_]: my company yes and i just wanted
him make sure i talked about that because

50
00:06:29,285 --> 00:06:33,852
[brent_bowers_]: no one ever talks about the obstacles
that we still face as business owners and

51
00:06:33,932 --> 00:06:37,057
[brent_bowers_]: going back to the beginning where i
was saying don't just go out there and

52
00:06:37,098 --> 00:06:41,632
[brent_bowers_]: quit your job you can't play an
orange tree today expect to live off of

money and this this i know we were

59
00:07:05,312 --> 00:07:08,417
[brent_bowers_]: going to talk about how to do
this with little to no money and i

60
00:07:08,477 --> 00:07:11,885
[brent_bowers_]: will break down the steps if you

61
00:07:11,965 --> 00:07:13,228
[brent_bowers_]: lot of people are starting at

day free trial to this and pull a

74
00:09:52,547 --> 00:09:58,143
[brent_bowers_]: list that way so no what like
if you get hit an obstacle you got

75
00:09:58,203 --> 00:10:01,489
[brent_bowers_]: to figure out okay do i take
three steps to the right and keep walking

76
00:10:01,549 --> 00:10:05,956
[brent_bowers_]: forward or that didn't work i'm gonna
take now six steps to the left and

77
00:10:06,076 --> 00:10:10,266
[brent_bowers_]: keep walking forward you just got to
keep figuring it out like yesterday me and

78
00:10:10,326 --> 00:10:10,787
[brent_bowers_]: my wife

79
00:10:20,400 --> 00:10:20,661
[brent_bowers_]: oh

80
00:10:28,561 --> 00:10:28,682
[brent_bowers_]: an

81
00:11:11,042 --> 00:11:17,353
[brent_bowers_]: no and that's yeah there's got to
be a big enough why my why was

82
00:11:17,893 --> 00:11:20,395
[brent_bowers_]: i wanted to get the heck out
of the military so i didn't get another

83
00:11:20,435 --> 00:11:23,798
[brent_bowers_]: divorce that's a pretty good way to
make my buck get out of bed every

84
00:11:23,838 --> 00:11:29,864
[brent_bowers_]: morning at four a m now it's
like not that my wife was threatening divorce

85
00:11:29,965 --> 00:11:34,813
[brent_bowers_]: but i'd already had that happened so
in my psyche in my mind that could

86
00:11:34,873 --> 00:11:38,579
[brent_bowers_]: happen again so like i was going
to make some changes i had to be

87
00:11:38,639 --> 00:11:42,305
[brent_bowers_]: at work six a m from six
a m to about seven p m i

88
00:11:42,345 --> 00:11:46,353
[brent_bowers_]: was on based on was thirteen hours
a day and so what did i do

89
00:11:46,553 --> 00:11:49,238
[brent_bowers_]: i only had a way to make
more time there's only one way i could

90
00:11:49,278 --> 00:11:55,004
[brent_bowers_]: make more time and that was sleep
less there was probably better ways to do

91
00:11:55,064 --> 00:11:59,792
[brent_bowers_]: it than that but that's what worked
for me and you know deleted facebook got

92
00:11:59,872 --> 00:12:03,298
[brent_bowers_]: rid of freaking netflix how much is
netflix paying you to watch it like and

93
00:12:03,338 --> 00:12:08,747
[brent_bowers_]: i'm like nothing like they're making tons
of money off of you though do i

94
00:12:08,867 --> 00:12:13,856
[brent_bowers_]: watch netflix now dang right i do
i just got just bene liken lawyer but

95
00:12:13,936 --> 00:12:19,124
[brent_bowers_]: you know that's my bills are paid
type thing but back en i was building

96
00:12:19,184 --> 00:12:23,472
[brent_bowers_]: a business and i'm still am building
it like we're always improving like you got

97
00:12:23,512 --> 00:12:26,917
[brent_bowers_]: to put work first there's going to
be some nights that you can't go out

98
00:12:26,957 --> 00:12:29,962
[brent_bowers_]: and hang out with the boys or
you drop the baseball team or whatever it

99
00:12:30,083 --> 00:12:32,907
[brent_bowers_]: is um and you just got to
go and do it so let's get to

100
00:12:32,967 --> 00:12:37,355
[brent_bowers_]: the step so you know it's just
like it's first getting a list you talked

101
00:12:37,415 --> 00:12:43,985
[brent_bowers_]: about absent owners that list that i
in colorado was from the county treasurer's office

102
00:12:44,486 --> 00:12:48,883
[brent_bowers_]: and i must have had to ask
her name was sandy and still is she

103
00:12:48,923 --> 00:12:52,188
[brent_bowers_]: still helps me this day i must
have had to ask her four different ways

104
00:12:52,809 --> 00:12:56,756
[brent_bowers_]: how do i get a list of
people not paying their taxes on their property

105
00:12:57,497 --> 00:13:01,843
[brent_bowers_]: she thought i was interested paying the
back taxes i wasn't i wanted to just

106
00:13:01,903 --> 00:13:05,788
[brent_bowers_]: see who was behind and then you
can take that list and it's really cool

107
00:13:05,808 --> 00:13:12,866
[brent_bowers_]: what you said case and figure out
if the mailing address is different from the

108
00:13:12,966 --> 00:13:17,554
[brent_bowers_]: property or a different state a different
city a different county and it's like oh

109
00:13:17,634 --> 00:13:22,743
[brent_bowers_]: wow these guys are you know absent
owners live in the county and they're behind

110
00:13:22,803 --> 00:13:27,250
[brent_bowers_]: on their taxes they must be motivated
to sell this land so then i would

111
00:13:27,350 --> 00:13:30,095
[brent_bowers_]: take a post card and i'll give
the post card right now if you go

00:14:37,092 --> 00:14:42,000
[brent_bowers_]: only working half days um but i
would go and sneak in the bathroom and

129
00:14:42,061 --> 00:14:46,368
[brent_bowers_]: return those calls and i would talk
to these sellers and see if there was

130
00:14:46,408 --> 00:14:51,156
[brent_bowers_]: a problem i could solve what is
the least you could take for that property

131
00:14:51,516 --> 00:14:54,902
[brent_bowers_]: you know that parcel of land and
i would get their number i would ask

132
00:14:54,942 --> 00:14:58,668
[brent_bowers_]: them another five different ways to figure
out what they wanted to sell that land

133
00:14:58,768 --> 00:15:03,015
[brent_bowers_]: for and i would thank them for
their time and say is it okay if

134
00:15:03,096 --> 00:15:07,423
[brent_bowers_]: i research this land i'm going to
get back to you because look i'm an

135
00:15:07,503 --> 00:15:12,150
[brent_bowers_]: army officer i'm doing this for some
additional income i've got to is i've got

136
00:15:12,210 --> 00:15:15,975
[brent_bowers_]: two babies under three years old but
dipers are killing me like we would connect

137
00:15:16,075 --> 00:15:22,125
[brent_bowers_]: on a personal level and that's what
people forget it's like when just starting out

138
00:15:22,165 --> 00:15:25,844
[brent_bowers_]: we feel like we should know all
the answers right at the end of the

139
00:15:25,885 --> 00:15:31,516
[brent_bowers_]: day what's more important it's being coming
a person to that seller and a person

140
00:15:31,616 --> 00:15:36,043
[brent_bowers_]: with challenges and issues of all of
your own and figuring out a way and

141
00:15:36,184 --> 00:15:41,171
[brent_bowers_]: listening to what that seller is trying
to accomplish maybe they're selling the land becase

142
00:15:41,191 --> 00:15:45,255
[brent_bowers_]: they're tired of paying the taxes maybe
they just need five thousand dollars to pay

143
00:15:45,375 --> 00:15:49,799
[brent_bowers_]: for pay for their grandchild's education you
never know

144
00:16:08,670 --> 00:16:12,576
[brent_bowers_]: you're so right and it's because they're
not in their right mind they're facing a

145
00:16:12,717 --> 00:16:20,890
[brent_bowers_]: challenge and a lot of times people
could be facing death divorce sickness taxes little

146
00:16:20,950 --> 00:16:25,277
[brent_bowers_]: things that might not seem so like
oh my gosh why can't they just figure

147
00:16:25,338 --> 00:16:28,202
[brent_bowers_]: it out why wouldn't they just sell
it rather than lose it to back texas

148
00:16:28,583 --> 00:16:32,409
[brent_bowers_]: why wouldn't someone just sell their house
that's going to go in for closure then

149
00:16:32,510 --> 00:16:36,850
[brent_bowers_]: lose it on the four closer action
step you're not in their mind because they

150
00:16:36,970 --> 00:16:41,899
[brent_bowers_]: just went through death or divorce or
taxes or you name it could have been

151
00:16:42,059 --> 00:16:45,625
[brent_bowers_]: all those things and they're not in
their right mind and that's where you listen

152
00:16:45,685 --> 00:16:50,280
[brent_bowers_]: for the solution not to take advantage
of people but figure out how can i

153
00:16:50,400 --> 00:16:55,366
[brent_bowers_]: help this seller that's still i mean
it's still going to be profitable to you

154
00:16:55,927 --> 00:16:59,261
[brent_bowers_]: but if you're always thinking about your
profit you're not going to do too many

155
00:16:59,321 --> 00:17:02,747
[brent_bowers_]: land deals your not gonna do too
many house deals like if you focus on

156
00:17:03,088 --> 00:17:08,296
[brent_bowers_]: solving that seller's challenge and problems oh
there's so much money to be made there's

157
00:17:08,336 --> 00:17:13,256
[brent_bowers_]: so much money and that's that's what
we're here for yeah

158
00:18:34,110 --> 00:18:35,190

position for so many years i've been in

163

[brent_bowers_]: treat me bad but here

165
00:19:57,540 --> 00:20:00,545
[brent_bowers_]: that's so true and it's like i
don't like it when people treat me bad

166
00:20:00,645 --> 00:20:04,311
[brent_bowers_]: but you know i don't want to

233
00:29:14,834 --> 00:29:17,523
[brent_bowers_]: really want to see if i can
get it under contract for as little as

234
00:29:17,603 --> 00:29:21,873
[brent_bowers_]: possible because at the end of the
day i've got it taken to account all

235
00:29:21,933 --> 00:29:27,362
[brent_bowers_]: these things that could possibly happen maybe
access issues or what not i wanted at

236
00:29:27,442 --> 00:29:32,170
[brent_bowers_]: such a massive discount what's a massive
discount well i love the fact of what

00:29:32,911 --> 00:29:37,779
[brent_bowers_]: warren buffet uses he uses the three
hundred percent rule and he didn't learn he

238
00:29:37,819 --> 00:29:42,627
[brent_bowers_]: didn't create that he learned it from
benjamin gram who wrote the intelligent investor so

239
00:29:42,928 --> 00:29:47,461
[brent_bowers_]: if that's worked for the eve very
very wealthy individuals i'm going to use that

240
00:29:47,541 --> 00:29:51,046
[brent_bowers_]: as my you know my starting point
as well so if i can get it

241
00:29:51,086 --> 00:29:56,212
[brent_bowers_]: for about thirty three cents on the
dollar i am tickled pink because i know

242
00:29:56,472 --> 00:30:00,920
[brent_bowers_]: that there is a lot of room
for error in that so that's where i'm

243
00:30:00,980 --> 00:30:04,366
[brent_bowers_]: going to get it under contract for
as little as possible and i'm going to

244
00:30:04,386 --> 00:30:08,635
[brent_bowers_]: give myself at least a fifteen day
inspection period that i can cancel that contract

245
00:30:08,675 --> 00:30:11,131

282
00:39:23,034 --> 00:39:26,839

can get something under contract at a discount

283
00:39:27,700 --> 00:39:30,924
[brent_bowers_]: and you have your buyer lined up
as well how do you find those buyers

[brent_bowers_]: i find them on crags list and
facebook and signs it's almost like a it's

285
00:39:37,180 --> 00:39:41,788
[brent_bowers_]: almost like a guarantee that you are
going to make money because so many people

286
00:39:41,848 --> 00:39:45,174
[brent_bowers_]: are afraid to pull that trigger that's
why we line the buyer up first and

287
00:39:45,214 --> 00:39:49,521
[brent_bowers_]: then you have other options you can
assign that contract to that buyer for some

[brent_bowers_]: quick cash my dad's done about fifty
