    Great Show!
    Pat's podcast is overflowing with information! I'm really grateful for all that I've learned from Pat and the experts on the show. Every episode is packed with valuable content. I'm always telling my friends and coworkers about it - I just can't recommend it highly enough!

    The ads are just too much!
    I’ve listened to this podcast since you started in the beginning. You have amazing content. I run a 7 figure operational management firm so I get the ads produce revenue, I respect it! However, I’m listening to the most recent episode and I swear it was 9 minutes of ads before you even started talking! That’s crazy and I know its off putting! Can you mix them in the episode instead of all in the beginning? It’s turning me off as well as many others.
  • Wmmmmmmmmmm
    So encouraging for the little guy
    I really appreciate Pat’s focus across all his content on encouraging and lifting up the newbies with just a dream but no idea how to start. I love his episode 432 with Sophie Walker - she’s so relatable and she figured it out and has helped so many as a result.

  • StephenAHart
    A fan for a decade plus
    I remember first being introduced to Pat Flynn back in 2012 … following his journey, learning from his experiences. Not much has changed over a decade except that Pat has impacted tens of thousands with his blessings. One of the best hosts and podcasts ever created! Thanks for always being relatable, authentic and pouring out value in everything you do!

    I’m Now a Full-Time Podcaster - Thanks Pat!
    Thank you for creating helpful and free tutorials on how to start your podcast. I used those to start my podcast in 2016 and now it's my full-time job! While I don't make nearly what I used to make in my corporate career, I'm 100% happier. I am a more present husband, father and the work I'm doing actually makes a difference in thousands of lives. (And I don't take that 1,000 lightly ... I think of a room full of 1,000 people (like you taught me) and realize that these are REAL folks, not just numbers) Your serve-first mentality reminds me a lot of my father and I'm trying my best to follow in both of your footsteps. Thank you for all that you do.

  • Electra23
    Favorite business podcast
    SPI is my first-click, go-to podcast for online business resources. Pat’s podcast and his classes have been absolutely critical to helping me grow my business and podcast. Pat is so relatable and his content is top notch. He teaches me things I didn’t even know that I needed to think about! Thx for everything, Pat!
  • KRob817
    So Helpful!
    I turned to SPI when I was starting my business for advice I could trust. It feels like Pat’s offerings (podcasts and classes) have grown with me. Highly recommended wherever you are in your entrepreneurial journey!
  • Reelee7
    SPI is the bomb!
    Love listening to Pat! I feel like he’s so down to earth and really cares about our success as we build whatever it is we’re working towards! Not scared to admit I’ve binged and listened to 96 episodes in the past month and 1/2 and always leave super inspired.
  • Watercooler25
    Love the human touch
    I stumbled across Pat’s show with the goal of learning some podcasting tips. That’s when I spotted his show on “Why people hate”. All I can say is I was super impressed with the vulnerability he showed and the humanity. You can always tell when someone is being real vs. when you are being sold a bag of goods. I loved the message - hurt people hurt people. Dr. John - The Men’s Self Help Podcast
  • Jess de Mamita Emprendedora
    I love your podcast Pat!

  • IllustratorEric
    Changed our lives
    The original episode with Shane & Jocelyn Sam’s was the prime catalyst for my wife and I to build a passive income stream that brings one adult income into our home every year. This has brought us the kind of freedom we are grateful for every day. Subsequent podcast episodes and “Will it Fly” have helped us continue to steer the ship. Thank you, Pat and team!

    So good
    I love this podcast. As an entrepreneur its good to listen to podcast that shares such a wide range of experiences, knowledge and value to its listener. I had to binge listen after one episode because it was that good and filled with so much actionable steps to take.

    Pat’s advice has helped me for years
    I’ve been a huge fan of SPI for years, so this review is long overdue. Pat and this podcast has helped me launch my digital course business and start my own podcast - I’m forever grateful for whoever it was that originally recommended I listen, because it’s truly changed my life. Thanks so much! Keep up the solid work.
  • Greg Harrod
    Pat always adds value
    Whether it’s with a solo episode or through an insightful conversation with one of his amazing guests, I always learn something from each episode. I have not only learned about podcasting, online marketing, and creating passive income as an entrepreneur. I have also discovered all sorts of areas of business I previously knew nothing about. Check out a few episodes and you will be hooked.
  • Dami M
    Loved the Surprising State of Podcasting
    It was super helpful and encouraging especially for me, getting ready for my podcast launch. I appreciate that a lot of the episodes on here are heart level and then tactical which is huge for self leadership and being able to serve others well. I shy away from content that feels overly punchy or gimmicky, but I sense I’ll be getting a lot of growth and maturity as I go through more episodes. Thanks!
  • Ali ManRay
    Team Flynn for the Win!
    Pat and his team have the best stories, advice and encouragement for entrepreneurs and those even just dreaming someday about starting a business. Pat’s compassion and passion come through every episode, and his humility helps you feel that you can get there too.
  • Etsy Student
    Constant self promotion and advertising
    The show topic is exactly what I was interested in but the content is just the host self promoting himself and his products as well as hawking other products he’s clearly getting paid to plug.
  • BuddhaManAndy
    Love Pat’s advice
    Pat Flynn explain explains the intricacies of podcasting in an easy and approachable way. Great podcast.

    Great Lessons and Motivations for Starting Own Business
    Been listening to SPI since 2014-ish, have heard the entire backlog. It’s time to say goodbye, but I highly recommend this show to anyone who wants to learn the hows and find the whys of starting your own business. Pat shares all his personal entrepreneurial experiences, and the guests in a vast variety of fields also share valuable lessons. While there is more bias toward solopreneurship or lifestyle businesses, as opposed to unicorn tech startups, I’d argue the materials are more accessible to the “average” people. Next time I embark on an entrepreneurial journey again, I’d definitely be referring back to the ample notes I’ve taken from this podcast. Keep up the good work!
  • Mandi Ellefson
    Good quality advice

    Brand New Career @66
    Yall shivered me timbers! Every single point struck me thru the heart as I’d say, “Oh! Already doin that! Orrrr Geeez what a great idea! I can do THAT!”. The creative juices spawned from wisdom and the tribal inclusion are awesomely felt.
  • redheadagent
    Oh. My. Goodness. Soooo Good!
    I was introduced to Pat’s SPI podcast while listening to Pat being interviewed on someone else’s podcast. I’ve been listening to his interview with Racheal Cook and it’s a fantastic interview. I really enjoyed Pats interview with YT filmmaker Matt D’Avella. Pat asks thoughtful and interesting questions which stoke great answers from his guests.
  • laurentwhite
    So Informative, Awesome!!
    I am just getting into binge-listening these episodes. Pat is down to earth, but incredibly knowledgable. I can’t wait to get through all the episodes. I am already gaining clarity and direction from his great and direct interviewing technique. He always stays on point and works hard to make sure a ton of value is provided to his listeners. As a fellow architecture student at UC Berkeley, as well, I wish I had taken this route a lot earlier!
  • emmadlauren
    One of the best out there

  • Artax6
    Pat is Good People
    Wow- talk about someone who truly wants to serve his audience and deliver value, and create raving fans! He has done just that, just look at his reviews. Everyone who is interested in starting any kind of side-hustle, any kind of creator, any entrepreneur, podcaster, blogger, etc., should subscribe and listen to this podcast. Then go to his website and check out the awesome list of resources. Then take one of his courses. There’s gold in them there hills.
  • Maybelline_V
    Such a great Podcast
    I have been a listener for quite some time and I have learned so much over the years. Pat’s message really resonates with me and I love his honesty and service attitude. I became one of his students when he first launched Power Up Podcasting and he is absolutely right, podcasting will transform your life in ways you cannot even imagine. You have a 10 starts podcast, such a shame I can only give you 5. Blessings!
