      Very helpful Pat. Your Smart From Scratch course helped me with clarity and gave me the ability to move forward with my Downton Abbey podcast. Thank you for providing it for free during this time. I also highly recommend your (BYOB) Build Your Own Brand course. They have helped me so very much. ❤️

        His BYOB course is SOOO helpful!

        Hello Margaret! Isn’t it the best? I’m working on the podcast launch and I still refer back to BYOB. I think highschoolers and college students should take it. It would help give them focus and clarity about their futures.

        Hey Lisa! Totally the best! I’ve for sure worn out my videos of it. It does bring clarity and focus to anything you’re doing, be it business or not.

      I’ve definitely lost focus before. Sometimes I feel like I’m jumping all over the place and need to work on sticking to one thing!

      Great Content as always! Thanks Pat!

      Thanks for the video Pat, at least one thing helped me immediately

      I’m horrible about shiny object syndrome! It’s especially hard when it seems like it would be a good opportunity. But sometimes I just have to say “not right now”.

      I think I’m going to put a reminder to rewatch this in Trello or my planner to keep it fresh in my brain. Thanks Pat! #TeamFlynnforthewin

      Definitely something worth knowing man … So much worth knowing it …

      My work ethos has always been to continue until I succeed. I will apply this to my new business.

      Thank you

      I think an isometric shot of money on a mouse trap would have looked better than a birds eye view. Still good though.

      Huge thumb up for the thumbnail!

      Another great video Pat. Your videos continue to provide direction and support to so many of us. Keep up the good work mate, it’s inspiring me to do the same on my channel. Thank you 🙂

      Thanks for the advice Pat, I know there is a couple of those pitfalls I need to avoid.
