Pat Flynn makes a living on the internet and considers himself the luckiest person on the earth. Through his very popular blog Smart Passive Income and his Smart Passive Income Podcast  he shares his experience and helps his readers reach their goals.

He was also from the very few people, who encouraged me to start the Write 2B Read podcast.

In this interview we talk about why getting laid off was the best thing that happened to him, why did Pat decide to write his first book Let Go, what were his challenges along the way, negative reviews and how he keeps his audience engaged.

Let Go was first published on Snippet. This is an app that makes it possible to create a book, which can integrate images, videos and social media. As a result readers not only read your book, but also get additional experiences.
