SPI 318: Modern Mindfulness with Melissa Monte—An SPI Student and Her Successful Start

I’ve had a lot of requests for episodes like this, so we’re doing something a little different today. We’re talking to Melissa Monte, a student of my Power-Up Podcasting Fast Track Workshop. Her podcast, Mind Love, launched soon after, and she’s here to share how she created her vibrant and successful podcast from scratch. I wanted to bring Melissa on today to talk about what she’s learned, what she has planned for the future, and how she’s progressing. It gets pretty personal too. Melissa talks about some of the darker years of her life, and how she was able to overcome them and create a whole new perspective.

Now that Melissa has a growing audience, I also offer some help and advice for next steps so that she can […]

SPI 314: From Clients to Passive Income—Productize Your Business with Brian Casel

Today we have a return appearance from an amazing past guest—Brian Casel. I’ve had a lot of people asking me to bring him back to talk about how to take your service-based business and turn that business into a product, or into something that can be scaled and automated. We’ll cover all of that, plus how to hire for and manage your productized business, why Brian is delving into the software field, and more! We really get deep in the weeds in this conversation. For example, we’ll be talking about how to get over the fear of hiring or being a manager for the first time, so that you’re not the one doing all the work anymore. The goal is to have people or software or other tools that can do it for you so that you can get a little bit of time back, work on the bigger decisions […]

I know I can make an impact on people through my blog, podcast, and video channel on YouTube, but when you’re on stage and people can see you in person, you have the capacity to affect them on an emotional level. That’s why I’m so excited to announce my biggest keynote ever! Pat Flynn January 8, 2018 My Biggest Keynote Ever Just this past November, I spoke in front of an audience of 3,000 people—the largest number ever for me—at Christy Wright’s Business Boutique event.
