Today David gets to resurrect a conversation from a while back. It was a great discussion of life and how to make the best of every situation, from the real-life experience of Pat Flynn.
Pat’s a well-known internet personality. He speaks at many conferences and is truly a jobless-to-self-made-success story. After being laid off from his job as an architect, Pat took matters into his own hands to crank up his own life through creating his own streams of income through business, marketing, and product creation. He’s become an inspiration to many people who have had difficult situations enter their lives and need a shot of encouragement that they can do something about it.
When Pat was laid off, he tried a lot of things to get income going quickly. He saw income trickle in a little at a time, and then hit his first large-scale success when he created an ebook teaching folks how to pass the LEED exam to become architects. It was a site he’d begun while he was still working and the ebook was his first attempt to monetize the site. It was a huge success, earning over $7000 the first day it was available.
From there, Pat started a podcast that became very popular (Smart Passive Income) and has moved on to become the key-note speaker at many world-class conferences, has created a book, other podcasts, and has become a “you can do it” example for the everyday man or woman who wants to create their own opportunity. If you’re in that boat, or thinking about climbing aboard, Pat’s story should give you plenty of encouragement to take the leap.
