TheLivelyShowWithPatFlynn

Today is the 1st Anniversary Special and season 1 finale for The Lively Show!

And I have the perfect guest to celebrate with.

Today’s guest is Pat Flynn, an incredibly genuine and successful business owner with a blog and podcast called Smart Passive Income.

Pat owns several companies, and documents his business successes and failures on his blog each month.

In this episode, we talk about the mindset shifts and personal habit changes he’s made from when he got laid off from his architecture job in 2008, to today, where he regularly earns around $100,000 per month(!).

We also discuss his business Values, personal life Values, and how he prioritizes his wife and children.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is looking to design a career based on their Values, or wants to learn from someone who has achieved massive success personally and financially while staying grounded along the way.

TLS 65: Stopping the Glorification of Busy with Katie Richardson (puj.com)

TheLivelyShowWithKaiteRichardson This Lively Show is thanks to a tag @shanderson22 left for me on Katie Richardson’s Instagram photo that declared, “stop the glorification of busy.”

I’m talking with the incredible Katie Richardson, a wife, mother of four littles, and the founder of the practical and stylish children’s line, Puj. This episode is more of a conversation than a traditional interview. Katie and I both explore the challenges, triumphs, and limiting beliefs we face when it comes to detaching ourselves from busy-ness.

This episode is perfect for anyone who is over-scheduled, overwhelmed, or wants to drop the word “busy” from their vocabulary.
