“… having his [Pat Flynn's] oversight and getting access to his knowledge is like a triple shot of espresso for your business.
What led you to SPI Pro?
Learned about Pat, interviewed him for Epic Content Marketing, and decided to try the community out for the $1 trial in October 2022. Have been here ever since.

What role has SPI Pro had in your business?
It's helped me connect with other creators and consultants as well as provided a place to try out new presentations and content ideas.
What do you love most about SPI Pro, and what sets SPI’s communities apart from other entrepreneurial communities?
I think my favorite thing about the community, and the primary reason I joined, was access to Pat. Every time I go to one of his AMA sessions I get such amazing insights. I also think the networking and opportunities to have access to the community for feedback and input is well worth the monthly cost.
What would you say to encourage entrepreneurs who aren’t involved in a community to join one?
In order for your business to succeed and perform to its full potential, you need input and ideas from people you can trust. SPI Pro provides an incredible network of entrepreneurs who can look at your business and your content from many different angles and provide incredible insights. And, of course, Pat is one of the best at creating businesses that succeed, and having his oversight and getting access to his knowledge is like a triple shot of espresso for your business.
If you had to start a brand-new online business from scratch today, what would it be?
I am starting one 🙂 Launching my content optimization consulting business.
If you had to start your current business over again from scratch today, what one thing would you do differently?
Launch under a company name and brand instead of under my own name. I have benefitted from building my personal brand but, with an end goal to sell what I create, it will be much easier to sell a company not built on my name.
If you were given $1 million dollars today, no strings attached, what would you do with it?
Invest half of it and use the other half to help my wife and I launch our own marketing agency.
