Steven Butala:                   Welcome to The Land Academy show, entertaining land investment talk. I'm Steven Jack Butala. Jill DeWit:                            And I'm Jill DeWit, broadcasting from sunny Southern California. Steven Butala:                   Today, Jill and I talk with member extraordinaire, Matt Rogers, and he shares his success stories, hopefully, and maybe some of the reason why he got here. That's really what I'm interested in. Jill DeWit:                            Exactly! Steven Butala:                   Before we get into it, I would love to... actually, this is the question.
