Where Pat Started
Pat Flynn was let go (laid off) from his job as an architect. The picture above is for his book Let Go. In the book, he talks about how he did all the right things but still lost his job.
Pat Has A Business Problem
Pat lucked out. He created a website that became Green Exam Academy to teach himself to pass the tough LEED exam. People started to find it. Actually, lots of people. He had 8,000+ visitors checking it out daily.
Instant money right?
Uh, not so much.
Pat had traffic but no clue how to make money or turn it into a business.
Success Groups solve Pat’s problem (and change his life)
Pat decided to try out a success group (he calls them masterminds). When the group met at the local Panera Bread, he took time to explain his problem.
After a few minutes of brain storming, they gave Pat the idea for his first product, an e-book that combined all of his blog posts on the LEED exam. A month or so later he earned $7,126.91 just from the e-book.
Success Groups Work
Pat currently takes part in 3 different success groups. He made $946,256.23 for 2014.

This is a photo of Pat Flynn and I at New Media Expo. He gave me the inspiration to try success groups.
Success groups have been huge for my development as an entrepreneur.
- I get awesome ideas from other successful business owners
- I get out of my head and refocus on the most important parts of my business
- For one hour a month I feel less alone and more clear on the next steps for my business
