Today I’ll be talking with Pat Flynn, best-selling author, passive income expert, and the author of two phenomenal books on building freedom, Let Go and Will It Fly? How to Test Your Next Business Idea So You Don’t Waste Your Time and Money!

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about getting out of the 9 to 5 rut, finding your runway, and taking off!

We’ll discuss Pat’s struggle’s, how he lost his job and turned things around making 4 million dollars in the process. We’ll look at what it takes to step out on your own way, find your own path, and gain freedom in the process. And we’ll look at how to go far beyond building a successful business, to building a successful life, living your way, by your rules.
