Lead by curiosity, Pat Flynn shows us how to “fail forward” into success.
“If I’m not curious about it, I’m not going to do the work to figure out, right. I have to be genuinely curious about something. But then I’m also like, oh, I’m finding out all this stuff about this thing I’m experimenting with. I have to share it now.”
Pat Flynn is a master of fun and a master of all trades. He is a father of two, a husband, an entrepreneur, an advisor, a podcaster, a YouTuber, and an author. He has built multiple companies, written books, and spoken on stages.
Pat Flynn was laid off from his job as an architect in 2008 and decided to start an online business helping people pass an architectural exam. He put the information online, created an ebook and soon found himself making two and a half times more money than his salary. He then launched his podcast Smart Passive Income and wrote a book about testing business ideas. His latest business ventures include creating a physical product and a Pokemon YouTube channel. Pat has learned that it’s important to be curious, to lead with his audience needs and to not be afraid of failure. He’s found success by learning from his mistakes and pivoting in the direction of creating community.
