009 | Pat Flynn Shows Us How to Build Relationships to Build Your Business

Hello and welcome to today’s episode! I’m thrilled to introduce you to Pat Flynn of The Smart Passive Income Podcast. In today’s episode, Pat tells us all about his first foray into creating software, and how it didn’t go well. It’s a great story to hear because so often we think that successful entrepreneurs never have failures, but we all do.

Pat shares 3 typical business practices that we should all avoid when starting in business, and provides better alternatives to these.

Most entrepreneurs know who Pat Flynn is. They’re familiar with his amazing podcast, and many are familiar (and have purchased) his courses. Pat regularly provides his audience with incredible content that is full of knowledge, but recently he was asked by Chalene Johnson to speak at her Marketing Impact Academy conference, under the condition that Pat must sell his new podcast course to her audience at the end of his presentation. Pat talks about why this made him uncomfortable and the end result.

Building a relationship is the number 1 thing you can do to grow your business, and Pat tells us all about the best ways to do it.

Have you been wondering how you can make more sales and serve more people in your business without having to be sleazy? Pat has you covered in this episode!
