If you have read my review of the podcast We Study Billionaires, you will know of my love to read and how, due to having no time, I have filled this with gap listening to online shows instead.  In my search for business podcasts, I have stumbled across is the Smart Passive Income Online Business and Blogging

Clearly for all those with an online business, it was Pat Flynn’s incredibly honest, “Lessons learned whilst launching and testing my first online course,” that has jumped out at me.

In this show, Pat discusses the mistakes he made when launching his first online course.  From whom he partnered with to sell it (he bundled the course with other courses, which in turn devalued his product), to realising that he actually couldn’t define what made the course a success for people – to the extent that he contacted every single person who had brought the course and returned the money that they had spent on it regardless as to whether or not they had completed the course.

As with every success, his story proves that this it is hard work and mistakes that get you to where you want to go.  As long as you learn from your mistakes, you will succeed.
