SPI 317: Make Money with Your Skills—Creating Awesome with Roberto Blake

SPI 317: Make Money with Your Skills—Creating Awesome with Roberto Blake

By Pat Flynn on

Let’s go back in time to the day after I lost my architecture job. What would you say to me? That’s the thought experiment we’re running today with Roberto Blake, creative entrepreneur and founder of Awesome Creator Academy and Create Awesome Media.

In my challenge to Roberto, he walks me through exactly what he’d suggest I do to get started building a personal brand (if it was the day after I got let go). He identifies the strategies, tactics, and mindset that any new entrepreneur should embrace, and highlights the shifting culture of modern business. Roberto has a reputation for building brands from the ground up and helping entrepreneurs make money with their creativity, and his game plans are spot-on.

This episode is powerful listening, especially if you’re at the beginning of your journey. Even if you’re not, you’re going to gain some major insight from Roberto. Put that phone in your pocket and turn the volume up—you’re going to want to listen carefully to this one.

I want to give a shout out to Nathan Barry of ConvertKit, who tweeted recently that ConvertKit has now hit $1 million in monthly recurring revenue. Huge congratulations to Nathan and the team! ConvertKit is the email service provider that I use. If you’re just building your email list and don’t have an email service provider yet, I recommend trying out ConvertKit. If you want a 45-day free trial, go to You can’t get this anywhere else. They’ll give you everything you need to get your email list up and growing, so check it out! [Full Disclosure: I’m a compensated advisor and an affiliate for ConvertKit.]

Next week we’re talking to a student of mine who’s just finding her stride. It’s going to be a great episode, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out!
