Pat Flynn

Overview

Pat Flynn is a rock star. No, not the hotel room trashing, booze in the morning drinking, smashing guitars on stage kind of rock star, but a rock star of online business.

After being let go from his job at an architecture firm during the financial crisis in 2008, Pat discovered that a little website he'd created was actually receiving a lot of visitors. The website was Smart Passive Income, and shared his study materials for the LEED architecture. Soon, it was selling products on it too.

Over time, Flynn has launched online business after online business, eventually leading to him becoming a high authority on the topic in general. In 2016, he finally published his first book, called Will It Fly? which explains a crucial part of the framework that makes his businesses successful: validating ideas.

"A sure-fire way to predict the future is to take no action at all. When we do nothing, we get nothing."
