I just wanted to share this quick video I recorded to say thanks for all of the well wishes and also to make some quick announcements about:
- Blog World Expo NY 2012
- Security Guard Training Headquarters
- A website I just purchased; and
- Happy Anniversary!
(Or, you can watch the video on YouTube by clicking here!)
Hey everybody, what’s up it’s Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com, and I just wanted to shoot this quick video for you to say thank you – thank you to the entire Smart Passive Income community. All of the support I’ve had over the past week since getting my wisdom teeth pulled out has just been amazing and really encouraging.
As many of you know, it’s been pretty rough for me. I still can’t open my mouth all the way and I can’t eat all the wonderful foods that I love to eat, but, you know, I’m hanging in there. Luckily, I didn’t look like a chipmunk and my cheeks didn’t explode, but I do feel like I got punched around a little bit.
But it’s okay – it just reminds me of high school. 😉
I just have a few more announcements.
I wanted to show myself here and let you know that I’m okay and I’ll be back soon.
Couple more announcements: I wanted to thank Kim and Greg who left wonderful guest posts on SPI this past week. Amazing guest posts, I recommend you check them out if you haven’t already. I’ll link to them below for you, so thank you Kim and Greg for those.
I was accepted to speak at Blog World Expo in New York! So I’m super stoked about that because one of my goals in 2012 was to speak more, and to speak at an event like Blog World Expo in New York is going to be fantastic. I have an excellent presentation lined up for you already – it’s kind of going in my mind right now, I haven’t mind-mapped it out yet, but it’ll be there.
So if you’re going to be in New York around June 5th to June 7th, I would love to meet you, see you there maybe hang out? I don’t know, we’ll see, so I’m really excited about that.
SecurityGuardTrainingHQ.com – my niche site – has a couple more advertisers on board so that’s going really well. The next post I’m going to write about that niche site is going to be about pricing your banner ads so look out for that in the future.
Another announcement is I actually bought my first website, so an existing website that has been out there that someone else owned, I actually purchased it from them with the goal of trying to improve on it, make money from it and realize that investment. So I’m going to be talking a lot about that in the future as well. It’s been pretty exciting, fun and scary at the same time, so I have a lot to say about that, but, it’s going pretty well. It’s actually a site in the golfing niche – the golfing niche and I do golf so it lines up perfectly!
And lastly, before I go, I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary to my wife April. We’ll be 3 years together on February 21st.
And seriously, without her I would not be where I’m at today. She supported me even before I started doing online business, and knew and believed in me – without her, I definitely wouldn’t be where I’m at today. So, I thank her for that and April, I love you.
I love YOU ALL out there for watching this and taking the time to support me and again all the best wishes – it really goes a long way.
So thank you so much, I hope you enjoyed this video and quick announcement and hopefully I’ll see you next week with a jaw that doesn’t hurt as much.
I’ll see you again soon, thank you so much and I’ll talk to you later! Bye!
