15 NEW “Pandemic-Created” Business Ideas in 15 Minutes

26 million Americans are without a job right now, and that's just in the U.S. alone. It's a terrible situation, one that I'm all too familiar with myself having gotten laid off during the recession in 2008. These are tough times, but there are opportunities within them, too. I was able to build a business back in 2008 as a result of getting laid off, and I imagine that those who focus on the future, and the ability to create something new now, are the ones who are going to come out of this dire situation best.

In this video, I'm excited to share 15 new business idea and niche opportunities that have arisen for action-takers during this time. It's not about taking advantage of people's fear though (PLEASE don't do that). It's about using this time to see the new opportunities available – the new problems that have shown up out of no where, and how we can come in and create solutions to help people during this time. Serve first, and you will be rewarded – and a lot of people need help right now.

15 new business ideas in 15 minutes – which one speaks the most to you? Which one do you feel has the biggest opportunity ahead?

And if you've been affected job-wise by the current situation, I've created a number of free resources on my website to help you during this time, including books and courses to help you start your business, too. We've given away over 2.4 million dollars worth of information, and already people are starting their new businesses today, which is awesome.

Here's a link to that resource:

        @Martin Hewlett yes! Pat Flynn’s Morning Show has become my NEW Morning Ritual.
        I’ve been working from home since 2001 (since 9/11) & i learn something NEW or Awesome or Inspirational from Pat’s Income Stream Show Every-Single-Time!

      Win. From a video of yours in the last week or two I’ve developed 4 remarkable new Affiliate relationships and am awaiting a response from 2 more. My life is complete if Approved by those final 2, but much improved from the 4 new ones so either way is fine. Your content is whatever’s after world-class; maybe universe-class. Thank you.

    5. Grandma Goodie's Bible Stories April 24, 2020 at 12:21 am #

      I’m going to use 2 of these to adapt what I’m already doing (adding self-directed play to give parental relief) to go with Bible stories for the kiddos free & ad-free on YT & add a membership option. We also learned a lot watching Pat record this live. Join us 8 am daily on The Income Stream!

      Great advice! Look for new opportunities these unique situations present us with, instead of shutting down in fear

    7. Fabiano Pina April 24, 2020 at 12:48 am #

      Say screw you Pat! I second that

    8. Anthony Freeman April 24, 2020 at 12:57 am #

      That was fun! The esports idea is interesting. Time to start that Twitch channel!

    9. kingsalomondotnet April 24, 2020 at 2:12 am #

      Thanks Pat. Interesting about your first idea. In our family we have 2 girls and 4 boys. We have homeschooled from K through 12. Our oldest is studying to be a respiratory therapist and second oldest has been accepted at Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. What seems second nature to us is probably causing others to panic.

      Love the end result. What a killer video from the livestream, and most importantly, of great value for these times. Thanks Pat!

    11. Chris Trostle April 24, 2020 at 2:39 am #

      Great seeing the end result. Good stuff!

      “Screw you” is certainly an appropriate response to the hand sanitizer and toilet paper opportunidts

      • CoachDeb April 24, 2020 at 4:57 pm #

        100% AGREE!

    13. Shilpa Pathak April 24, 2020 at 11:15 am #

    14. rap and combat. April 24, 2020 at 11:32 am #

      this was really awesome to literally watch you record this whole thing live while on #TheIncomeStream. A1 stuff.

      • Janelle Brown April 24, 2020 at 2:32 pm #

        And up within 9 hours! Excellent.

    15. Heather Newton April 24, 2020 at 4:02 pm #

      LOL! I love the edit on the “screw you” part! Yes, totally justified. 😀

      • Pat Flynn April 24, 2020 at 4:37 pm #

        Thanks Heather! You rock!

      • CoachDeb April 24, 2020 at 5:01 pm #

        RIGHT!!! It’s 100% THE most appropriate response to people who exploit others during this time. heck – or ANY time for that matter. #PatRocks

    16. Practical IT with Jeremy Leik April 24, 2020 at 4:24 pm #

      Great video. I’ve heard others mention several of these ideas lately.

      Most interesting to me right now is probably Education. I’ve been thinking about building a course around an expanded version of some of my most popular YouTube videos.

      • Pat Flynn April 24, 2020 at 4:37 pm #

        Love it!

    17. Inea - eBusiness Accountant April 24, 2020 at 5:03 pm #

      Thank you for the motivation. This is confirmation of an idea I have been flirting with. I have a day job but on the side I want to start my own Virtual CPA Firm to focus on ebusinesses, including YT content creators.
