      @12:30 I am curious to know more about the conference Patt. What about it made it hard decision? Was a controversial topic that would not be aligned with your brand?

      #TeamReplay – I saw this and stopped everything. I love it when you get real with people. It’s one of the things I love most about being part of Pat Flynn Nation

      I am just an experienced beginner listening every day and loving TeamFlynn. (This is where you tell me to leave and focus on my 1 thing, lol) But to say that you are appreciated is an understatement. There are so many things I know I will need down the road and listening the second time around will be helpful. You have so much knowledge you share freely. But the reason I continuously show up is that at 52 I am learning how to show up for friends (I haven’t met yet) without feeling like I’m going to fall on my face. And if I do, I’m sure we will get some good laughs. I am learning to be confident in my vulnerability and willingness to share openly knowing I have great boundaries in place. I am also learning to trust in the moment knowing that I am always supported. #TeamFlynn has the most upstanding, hardworking, creative entrepreneurs of all different ages, levels and backrounds. And I am proud to be among them. And you have created all of this. Your character, courage and humility are changing an industry and possibly the world, one person at a time. I thank you. #TeamFlynnfortheWin!

      #Team Replay. Thank you for sharing what were troublesome and obvious emotional moments with your fans. I and I’m sure many appreciate you.While it didn’t seem so at the time, you had the resilience to overcome and double down in service with your community. You were brave to reach out to that troubled person to help, because that is who you are and I applaud that. It was sad to find out it was all just to drive traffic to his website without the consideration of what effect it may have on the recipient of their hate. Personally I’m still a little side hustle but you showed me back in 2014/2015 how to set up a podcast and without that I would not be doing what I enjoy now is editing podcasts and audiobooks. Now I help others sharing what I learned and got the sort of positive feedback that without my help they would not have progressed their business. Helping & serving others is what it is all about, it transcends business and personality it is who we are. For instance, I wrote to you a couple of years ago about how I was travelling from Dubai back to Glasgow in Scotland on a pretty full flight. This lady and child had come from Australia and seated all three of us together. I spoke to the cabin crew to find me another seat so the young boy could sleep and they could spread out on the tree seats.. Near the end of the flight the young boy approached me and gave me a thank you note. Today that note sits framed on my desk and reminds me everyday that I can make a difference to someone no matter how large or small. Pat, EVERYDAY YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE to so many peoples lives through your fans and by extension their fans by sharing your knowledge, encourgament and vulnerabilities which builds trust. Stay Safe with you and your family, and remember your wider family (us fans of all shapes, sizes & nationalities) are here for you as well.
