Today on The Lively Show we have one of our first repeat guests, Pat Flynn, of the Smart Passive Income podcast.
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Pat and his show for years now, and today we’re diving into a topic he hasn’t shared much about: the creative and entrepreneurial mindsets he’s deliberately exposing his children to as they develop.
In addition, we’re also discussing the topic of his new book, Will It Fly?, which addresses ways that we can validate and test potential business ideas to determine whether they would be financially successful before we invest a lot of our time and money.
This episode is perfect for anyone who is interested in ways to expose children to a creative or entrepreneurial mindset, or is interested in learning about how to test business ideas before investing a lot of time and money.
