How to Start a Business in 2022 (5 Steps to Move Quickly)

2022 is just around the corner, so to help you accelerate decisions for a business in the new year, here's a 5-step framework to help you reduce the overwhelm, make decisions, and choose the right path that will help you get results more quickly.

In this video, I also feature @Roberto Blake who attended our event, Audience Driven, and laid down some amazing value about a particular segment of this framework.

    At what point should you set up a YouTube platform or website as a business?

    • Pat Flynn November 4, 2021 at 3:09 pm #

      Those platforms are not the business, they’re the place to run a business from / or on and build an audience. The business is the service or a providing of a solution to the audience that you build. Based on this framework, it would be building on these platforms to build an audience once you’ve determined who it is you want to serve!

    Great content as always Pat. I like this strategy aswell, very good approach to creating something new.

    Would you consider something like Patreon to be social media, too?

    You’re always great about clarifying things, making them so much easier!

      Great question. Looking forward to the answer.

      I think that Patreon would be a membership platform, which would be one monetization choice. Look forward to confirmation or education.

    • Pat Flynn November 4, 2021 at 3:32 pm #

      I agree with Michelle, before monetizing you’d need a place to communicate with your audience without a paywall. Patreon would be one Monetization platform that provides an opportunity for your people to connect with you more deeply, in exchange for that offer!

      That makes sense. Thanks for the answers!

    Permission to start simple. Needed this!

    As you know Pat, I started my podcast 2 years ago after listening to your Ask Pat 2.0 show. Well, nearly hitting 3 million downloads. The ad revenue without sponsorship etc has started to make a living wage. The show launched its own app and next year, our first physical product.
    For everyone reading this and starting to follow Pat, his methods work. The only barrier to your own success is YOU.

      So proud of you Martin. Crushing it!

      @Jonathan Redmond Thanks.

    Thanks for the feature in the video Pat! Really enjoyed our conversation!

    • Michelle Darby November 4, 2021 at 4:45 pm #

      I was so excited to see you featured. You guys are the ONLY two people I’ll take business advice or direction from. Currently working on our 100 crappy videos.

      You deserve it!
