Inspiring Quotes by Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income Blog
Your earnings are a byproduct of how well you serve your audience, and you can only best serve your audience when you know exactly who they are, what they’re going through, and what will get them to take action.
“Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of VaynerMedia, is another person that comes to mind who has a very clear unfair advantage over others… He has an unmatched ability to hustle like there’s no tomorrow, and out-hustle everyone that stands in his way. Seriously, the guy works harder than anyone I know, and he loves every minute of it.”
I remember searching for the keyword “passive income online” back in 2011 when I just leave the army (mandatory for all Singaporeans to serve two years in the army) and stumbled upon Pat Flynn’s SmartPassiveIncome blog.
There were other sites ranking for that keyword but I only remembered Pat’s blog and forgot the rest. It stands out like a sore thumb due to his authenticity, transparency, and willingness to engage with his readers.
FYI: Back then, having an income report isn’t the norm as it is today. I’m not sure if Pat was the one who started the Monthly Income Report but he sure as hell was the pioneer.
I remember going to his income report page and my jaw literally dropped when I saw that he was making consistent $10,000+/month passive income. (Today, he is easily making 10x more than that but unfortunately, I don’t see his income report page at the top right-hand side at the time of writing this post in April 2020)
Reading his blog was a daily routine for me so one day I’ve just decided to write him an email asking him about SEO and blogging.
The truth is, I didn’t expect a reply… but low and behold, I received an email from Pat Flynn in less than 24 hours. I jumped out of my sit in disbelief. After that email, I became a superfan, an advocate of his brand and I just can’t shut my mouth about SPI to anyone I see.
Pat opened up my eyes to Entrepreneurship and Digital Marketing. He showed me that it is indeed possible to make a full-time income online doing what I love.
Since my first encounter with SmartPassiveIncome back in 2011, I owned 7 digital properties, sold one for a large figure in 2016 and now I’m living my dream working from home.
Thanks for the inspiration and for replying to my email back in 2011, Pat! I don’t know if I’d come so far if it wasn’t your inspiration and SPI blog.
