I SOLD 2 BUSINESSES IN 1 MONTH! (The #1 Lesson from Building and Selling a Business)

It happened! I sold two businesses that I started over 5 years ago, each of which that was making passive income for years for me. In this video, I'll share why and how it all went down, as well as my #1 tip that I've applied to these, and really ALL of my businesses that I have.

Watch to find out what this make-or-beak tip is related to selling a business, and let me know in the comments Team Flynn about how important do you think this tip is in both business, and in life (and where you may need to apply it, too).

      It feels so good to have fewer balls in the air, right? Congratulations on the sale.

        Totally! Money isn’t everything, time and freedom is great!

      Thumbs up! And yes, the fortune is definitely in the follow-up. I’d remix that and say the FORTUNE IS IN THE SHOWING-UP.

        You rock Kevin! (everyone check out his YouTube channel, it’s awesome!)

      You have the perfect combination of entertainment factor and information/education. Boom!

        That’s a HUGE compliment and exactly what I needed to hear right now. THANK YOU!

      Best lesson ever Pat! So many businesses and marketers take the “least line of resistance approach” only pursuing the people who react on the first contact.

      congrats Pat!

      Great video pat! I need to follow up and finish my latest font and stop doubting myself about it!

        YOU GOT THIS!

      I loved that last video BTW…

    11. Nick McHenry February 13, 2020 at 8:25 pm #

      Such great advice Pay. I have found that my second and third outreaches get so much more response than the first that I plan on it now strategically

      Well done. I’m starting my two blogs this year as a stream of income. One I hope to sell off but one will be my long term – hopefully.

      Hey Pat! I think you are doing an amazing job with your channel!!! Great videos and energy (as usual!). The fortune is in the follow up.. and I feel that is where I fail! Would you believe that we don’t have any follow up email sequences for people who download a free pdf, or even join our Academy? That HAS to become my focus!!!! Thanks for the painful reminder!

      Not taking yourself seriously helped me stay engaged. Especially liked the sound effect for “the fortune is in the follow up.”. (there, a thumbs up AND a comment)

      • Pat Flynn February 13, 2020 at 9:41 pm #

        Thank you! Means a lot!

      Pat! Congrats on the sales! Can I get some input from you? I’m working closely with a product manufacturer who has a successful gardening product overseas. I would like to import them and sell them in North America. The manufacturer has stated he’s agreeable to me becoming an exclusive dealer for this product. In addition to following up and continuing a dialogue with the manufacturer, what posts, podcast episodes, videos would you point me to to help make this project (importing a great product to a new continent) a success? Thanks!

      • Pat Flynn February 13, 2020 at 9:41 pm #

        Cool opportunity! I’d research anything and everything there is to know about importing products. I’m sure there are YouTube videos you could watch to start, perhaps books, and even events about these sorts of things. It’s obviously been done before, so remember that, and keep pushing forward!

      gold. thanks 🙂

      I totally agree with the fortune is in the follow-ups! By following up we stay top of mind. We’d like to only have to put ourselves out there once, but more often that not, that isn’t the case. Follow-up, stay top of mind, & if possible find out why those who haven’t responded didn’t. Each iteration will help you shape better & better product offerings and refine your pitch.

      By the way I loved your last vid! I may be biased because I used to sell computers & promote my repairs at markets, but I would have thought everyone could have gotten something out it if they continued to watch.
