    Aroldo,
    I stepped back from this for a little while after Steve “answered” this question on the podcast. I’m starting to get back into it. I went back to the training that I already had. I’m back to analyzing counties. Plus I will add this approach to my analysis.

    Kevin,
    That is a response that I can take action on. Thank you! I never grasped “look for activity”. I understood looking for the green on the map and being near a large MSA. But I just can’t find the spot where activity turns into saturation. I will try your process today!
    Thanks!

    I know I started this post out in a snarky way, but I truly am serious. All of the people who have made it to the side of profitability keep saying to have an attitude of abundance because there are so many counties and properties that there is enough for everyone. However after 2 years of never having a profitable month let alone making back the $20K+ in education, I just want to know where to go. How do you know before you drop 1000 mailers with little or no response that it is over saturated?

    Marcus,
    I am in a year long commitment with coaching. And I am learning and pushing forward with the coaching. I think I am just getting impatient. As far as going back to work, I am a stay-at-home mom. If I go back to work for someone else, I will not continue with land. Every minute that I wouldn’t be at “work”, I would be Mom. Currently, I get up between 3am and 4am. I go to sleep at 9pm-10pm. The whole time in between is housework, mom work or land work. I do land 7 days a week unless I have mom work or am sick. Last fall we went on vacation and I took my files, notes and laptop and still got up early to work on land. I’m not saying all of this because I want to show some great sacrifice. I’m trying to explain that I don’t have a lot of time flexibility. That’s probably why I am getting impatient.

    I rehabbed a house a few years ago. That was my seed money for this. I have spent a lot for education in the hopes to cut the learning curve. I am frustrated because I spent a lot of time with the first “guru”.

    Thanks for your input. I will go back and look at everyone’s suggestions and see if I can put something together that will work for me.

    Bleeding money means that I am not only paying for the expenses of the business, but also paid for a land investing program and am paying for coaching. I was under the impression that the education would cut the learning curve. I wish I would have found Land Academy first. And once I am done with coaching, I will either pay for LA or quit. I don’t want to quit. But my husband is pushing me to go back to work.

    Thanks! I’m trying to get the info to fill out the spreadsheet for analyzing markets for infill lots. I’ll go back and look at your recommendations and see if I can find the info that is needed.
    Thanks again!

    Where in Indiana are you? Do you invest in Indiana?

    Yeah they got rid of the paid FB page and offer a free one. Problem is that everything with Land Geek is an up sell. They offer VAs at $12+ per hour. But you can go to Land Masters for $3-$5 per hour. That is just an example of how over priced their stuff is.
