Although Pat Flynn has now created a massive community of online business owners, his own entrepreneur story started when he got laid off from his dream job as an architect. And in this episode, not only will we learn how Pat built and evolved his business SPI Media over the last 12 years, but he’ll also share advice on how you can benefit from his experience.
In fact Pat shares why he held back on publishing his first online course for four years, even though people were asking him for courses. He shares marketing strategies that anyone can use to build trust with your audience and create sustainable business growth.
But more than anything, we talk about the value of serving, not just selling, and how you can choose a truly amazing online business idea that makes a difference.
