Build a Speaking Business Beyond the Stage

With Pat Flynn

You know a speaker only makes money when they speak – unless they build their business beyond the stage. And today we are exploring one of the ways to do just that with the one and only Mr. Pat Flynn.

Pat is an entrepreneur and renowned public speaker who runs a site called Smart Passive Income. Even though he and I could geek out on speaking all day long we have a different focus for this show: affiliate marketing.

Pat has built a significant business going this route so I brought him on to share what he’s learned along the way.
