When you think about “online business” or “content marketing” or any of the kinds of things that most of us are trying to do, it’s hard to not create a negative association in your mind.
There are so many sleazy tactics and practices, half-truths and outright lies. If you’re not a part of it, you wouldn’t believe some of the things that people do.
Pat Flynn, on the other hand, has built a reputation for being an honest, completely above board kind of guy. And I was curious about how he did that? And more importantly, how do you stay true to yourself when money enters the equation (and in Pat’s case, lot’s of money)?
We talked about all of that and a lot more in this packed conversation. I learned a lot of things about Pat that I didn’t know. What’s the point of it all? Is he satisfied? Has his success brought the fulfillment he had hoped for?
As always, I had a great time talking to Pat. Enjoy the show!
