Episode #8 – Pat Flynn

For the past couple of years, I have been following a podcast called ‘Smart Passive Income’ – a podcast hosted by an extraordinary entrepreneur called Pat Flynn.

While this is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard and valued from, there is something even more interesting:
Pat has managed to build his business around his Family lifestyle!

He makes 7 figures (and shares his income reports on his site) while still being able to work from his home environment and make time for his wife and kids.

Pat and I talked about his daily routines, his values and guiding principles that make him so successful.
We talked about karma in the market, and some high end entrepreneurial black belt mindset 
We also talked about starting out a business, and about starting a podcast.
Later we talked about something that is not talked about enough in the entrepreneurial communities, and that’s mastermind groups.

Finally, Pat shared some of his favorite resources and tools.

Enjoy this awesome session with the one and only Pat Flynn!
