Ep 002: How sleep changes an entrepreneur's life? - A conversation with Pat Flynn
A father, husband, and entrepreneur who lives and works in San Diego, CA.
His podcast is one of the first podcasts that I listened. He owns several successful online businesses and is a professional blogger, keynote speaker, Wall Street Journal bestselling author, and host of the Smart Passive Income and AskPat podcasts, which have earned a combined total of over 55 million downloads, multiple awards, and features in publications such as The New York Times and Forbes. He is also an advisor to ConvertKit, LeadPages, Teachable, and other companies in the digital marketing arena.
Actually, Pat helped me to name my podcast and that’s how I get this fantastic name: “Deep into Sleep“!
