Passive Income: Build a Business that Works for You Rather Than You Working for Your Business: Glimpse TV with Pat Flynn of SmartPassiveIncome.com

Have you ever wanted to know how people you see on the internet looking really happy and successful really make their money? Not just the general overview, but the nitty gritty behind the scenes of what they spend money on in their business and then exactly how much revenue is generated from each income stream?

I know I have. Because it’s one thing to look really good in a Facebook ad, but it’s a whole other thing to have a business that supports a life you feel blessed to live.

A few months back I changed the tagline on katenorthrup.com to “Make a Life, Not Just a Living.”

Because, it turns out that making a life is far more elusive than making a living.

And, while certainly not unicorns, people who not only make great money but also have the time to do the things they love doing are few and far between.

Last fall I had the pleasure of meeting Pat Flynn of SmartPassiveIncome.com. This is a guy who not only makes a fantastic living, he also considers himself the luckiest man in the world because he gets to spend the majority of his time with his wife and kids.

He’s the epitome of “Make a Life, Not Just a Living.”

He got started in the passive income business by accident in 2008 and has gone on to found several top websites and podcasts in the internet marketing space, as well as launch his own software.

Plus, he publishes his income and expenses every single month. Total transparency. Total authenticity.

What you see is what you get with Pat. In a time when it’s really easy to look amazing on the internet but be living a life that’s a far cry from the image you portray, it’s incredibly refreshing to come across someone who tells it like it is.

In today’s episode of Glimpse TV with Pat Flynn, you’ll learn:

• how to build a business that works for you rather than having to work for your business all the time
• how not to be a scammy, sleazy, online marketing weirdo
• how to make money by scratching your own itch and
• what exactly passive income is (and how to get some!)

Plus, he also revealed how he built a business from scratch in an industry he knew nothing about and in 73 days was #1 on Google, already making thousands of dollars.
