In order to get a good idea of who Pat Flynn is you only have to look at his about page on his Smart Passive Income website. I got to meet Pat in St. Louis last fall when my mom and I attended a conference for personal finance bloggers. Pat was one of the keynote speakers at the conference and did a memorable job in his speech about first impressions.
As successful as he is, Pat did not hesitate to agree to meet with me over skype for an interview. His willingness to help other business owners really sets him apart and it is that willingness to help others that has brought about his Smart Passive Income site. Everything on the site is absolutely free. Pat doesn’t charge for any of the content on his site. He has chosen to monetize his site in other ways and he shares exactly what he did and does to get where he is today. There is so much to learn but I think that Pat has just about everything covered. If you have are interested in starting your own business online then Smart Passive Income is definitely the place to start!
During the interview with Pat he talks with me about the power of first impressions, his views on the importance of attending college, and the opportunities that teenagers have today in developing their own online businesses. So many people today claim college is a huge waste of money – Pat has his own take on the potential value of college that you will want to hear.
Here’s the interview!
And the famous tweet:
Many thanks to Pat for taking the time to speak with me!
