More About Pat:
I’m super excited to track down Pat today. Not only does he have a great personal story, but he is incredible about sharing what he has learned and has become a real dominant blogger with a ridiculously passionate community. We could all learn a thing or 30 from Pat.
Pat Flynn is the single owner of The Smart Passive Income Blog, a blog that he created to share his success with online business after being laid off in 2008. Since then, The Smart Passive Income Blog has dramatically grown in popularity for several reasons, including an extremely successful YouTube channel with nearly 1 million video views, a successful Podcast which was at one point ranked the #3 overall business podcast in iTunes right behind Dave Ramsey and The Wall Street Journal, and a very honest and transparent, no-hype approach to everything he does online.
