Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started in online business?
Great question! That’s what this website is designed to teach you!
The best place to get started is to visit our Smart Passive Income 101 page. We’ve created this page specifically to walk you through the key things you need to know to get started.
Once you’ve read and listened to the articles and podcasts on the Smart Passive Income 101 page, visit our Resources page. This is where I’ve outlined all of the courses, tools, and books that we find most useful for starting and building a business.
How do I know if my business idea will work?
This is a common question—and a common fear of new business owners). We have devoted a lot of time into helping make this process as easy as possible.
You want to run some tests to see if your business idea is sound, which is called “product validation.” All of our content on product and idea validation is available here.
Our CEO, Pat Flynn, is passionate about idea testing—he wrote an entire book on the topic called Will It Fly?. If you have a business idea that you’re ready to start testing, or you’re trying to choose between a few different ideas, we would encourage you to pick up a copy of that book. We've also created a course, Smart From Scratch, on the topic. This course will walk you step by step through the process of coming up with and testing an idea.
