Either way, we’ll get you sorted out with all the info you’ll need to make an educated buying decision.
Let’s face it, Mr. Flynn’s courses are not cheap, and If you’re like me, (or any good sensed person) you want to be sure that they’ll deliver the desired effects before you go tossing it in the old virtual basket.
So, for those of you that want it, here are a couple of other informative Flynnish related links.
The last one there, the StudioPress theme with Genesis Framework called SPI Pro, is a review that is to come at a later date.
So as the older folks in my neck of the woods say- Come On Back Now Ya Hear!
No, but seriously, in a few weeks, I will publish my findings.
Just search us out on Google, because as you can tell, we don’t do newsletters.
Besides, you have enough emails to look through already… Don’t You?
Now, before you go dipping into the rent money for any of Pat’s courses or books, take a look at the info below to find out if the product you’re looking to purchase Is Worthy Of Your Money.
Pat Flynn Passive Income Courses
If you’ve been researching any product with Pat’s name on it, then by now, there’s probably a few things that jump out at you.
1. He has an insanely loyal “Cult-Like” following.
2. Pretty much all his products or courses carry a hefty price tag.
3. Has 1,000’s of students enrolled in his courses at any one time.
With those 3 things in mind, you can pretty much bank on the idea that both, his free and paid, teachings promote success.
After all, you don’t generate such a loyal fan base or following by ripping folks off or putting out low-quality products.
On a bit of a side note, during my research, I found that roughly 70% of all his students bought into his paid courses after first experiencing his “Will It Fly” companion book course.
Although that could be directly related to the fact that he didn’t start creating paid courses and products until late 2015, early 2016.
If you can’t wait to become a Flynnian and start learning at the feet of Mr. Pat Flynn, then you can head on over to teachable.com to get access to his courses.
As for the rest of us, let’s take a peek at whether or not his companion course makes his book worth buying.

In a nutshell, it’s just a guide to help you take action on the stuff you’ll learn in the book.
Before I go any further let me point out that while I have not personally followed “said guide” it does have quite a lot of positive feedback from the ones that did.
So if this tickles your fancy than just head on over to Smart Passive Income to get yourself enrolled.
To see what’s inside the Will It Fly Companion Course just continue reading.
Will It Fly Companion Course Details

The 1-2-3 Affiliate Marketing Course
This course teaches you pretty much what you would imagine it to with a name like 1-2-3 Affiliate Marketing.
It’s a step by step guide on the process of getting started with affiliate marketing as well as how to make a website for promoting affiliate products.
Again it’s not at all cheap, but its sticker price of $397.00 is still not his most expensive.
Also, this course is not recommended for beginners but instead Pat recommends only intermediate level affiliates and above enroll themselves in this course.
Which in my book, is a big plus for the Flynnster to be upfront about the fact of beginners having a low success rate with it.
Or it’s an absolutely genius marketing tactic!
Tell you what, take a look at what’s in it and let us know what you decide…
Upfront Honesty Or Brilliant Marketing Tool?
Either way, here’s what you’ll get for a time payment of 400 bucks.
If you so decide to buy it yourself!

Here’s what it’s made up of:

Pat Flynn’s Podcast Course
During his online career Pat has become quite the pro at putting together educational and actionable podcasts for a variety of different kinds of niches and business ideas.
So it’s easy to see why he has taken his skills and packed them into a set of informative video tutorials for your online learning pleasure.
If there is one course or skill that I would say Mr. Flynn corners the market on- It’s without a doubt podcast creation.
Even though he is arguably the best in the podcasting business, he still could do us all a favor (not to mention make more sales) and lower the price.
Us average folks can’t afford to pay through the nose just to get access.
After all, his entire SPI Brand is built around the persona of him being an average, regular, everyday guy that just wants to help other everyday, average Joe’s do the same thing he’s doing.
Not sure about you but I don’t know too many other average everyday folks that can afford to pay $799 for something that does not come with an equal to or greater than ROI guarantee.
Even if you do take advantage of his 3-month payment plan of $299 a month over 3 months.
No, you did your math right, he’s charging you an extra 100 bucks for being broke.
Power Up Podcasting Training Materials
This podcasting training is made up of 7 stages/steps and in these 7 stages, you’ll find 51 videos totally 6 hours worth of content.
Furthermore, these stages are broken down into 3 groups and they are as follows:

Oh, and like with all of his other courses you’ll be given access to a custom, course tailored, Private Facebook Community.

Books By Pat Flynn
Just as a reminder, some of his books come with equipped with their own free walk-through courses that you can find within the web-pages of smartpassiveincome.com.
Which in my book is an added bonus because not to many folks take the time to put together these little extras to help people get the most out of what they just bought.
So for that, I applaud you, Mr. Flynn.
Will It Fly: How To Test Your Next Business Idea So You Don’t Waste Your Time And Money
This is the book that offers up the added bonus course for its readers and it can be found at Amazon for those of you that would like to skip ahead to purchasing it now.
Your welcome to stick around and see what you can expect to find between its covers.
Although the name pretty much sums it up but just in case you’re still curious.
It’s a book that gives you actionable steps to take when determining whether or not a niche/business has all the telltale signs of being profitable, worthwhile venture.
Likewise, this book will show you how to take your 1-in-a-million idea from a thought process to a functioning business by helping you identify your potential client base.
a.k.a. your new customers.
However, what really makes the success rate among its readers go thru the roof is the companion course we talked about earlier.
That alone makes it worth the $15.99 it will cost you to add it to your shelf.
These customer reviews alone really do shed a light on the quality of products that Ol’ Pat Baby is putting out.
Don’t You Think?
You don’t need to answer right now but I look forward to hearing from you in the comments below.
We’re not done yet, so hang in there for a little bit of the same only this time it’s about…
Pat Flynn’s Book Let Go
This books full title is Let Go: How To Transform Moments Of Panic Into A Life Of Profits & Purpose and it’ll run you in the neighborhood of $15-$20.
Unfortunately, this one does not come with a companion course but as you’ll see from the verified customer reviews…
It really doesn’t need one.
Then again that might have something to do with why this book earned him a best-seller award.
This little diddy takes its readers on a bit of a journey of the life of Flynn.
You’ll get a rundown of how he came about becoming a successful online entrepreneur after he was laid off (Hints Let Go) from his architectural day job.
There are lessons to be learned from this book but they’re not given to you as straightforward as they were with the aforementioned Will It Fly.
Nevertheless, you won’t be getting bored with the storyline because it easily applies to the majority of us that were hit hard by the recession that came about after those terrorist pricks attacked us on 9/11.
So, if you’re interested in knowing what lies ahead for you in your quest of becoming a successful online entrepreneur than give this book a read.
More importantly though, make sure you follow through and if you don’t know exactly how or where to start than let someone that’s been down that road show you the ropes.
Believe it or not, that is what a good percentage of the people making money online full-time now came from…
A Dead End Job That We Were Laid Off From.
That’s alright though, it was the best thing to ever happen to me and even more so to Pat.
Are Pat Flynn’s Online Courses & Books Legit
You’re damn right they are but unless it’s one of his books your after you’ll have to pay top dollar for it.
It could be that he hopes the rest of the world lives by the motto “You Get What You Pay For” as his reason on why he charges so much for them.
Or maybe he wants to ensure that only truly serious determined people sign up.
Either way, you’re going to learn and be able to do what he claims his courses will teach you.
He makes no monetary gain promises beforehand, but if you take the time to talk to a few of the folks that have been there and done that, you’ll find that more often than not they’re experiencing a little taste of success.
All of which is directly because of what they’ve learned from this successful online entrepreneur.
So, if you can afford it then rest assured you’re not going to be flushing your money down the poop shoot like you would be with a big percentage of the other so-called “Gurus”.
I know there was a lot of info to take in from this Review Of Pat Flynn’s Courses & Books. I just wanted to ensure that when you leave here, you do so knowing whether or not “That Course” is worth it for you and if you can really help you earn a passive income online.
Especially, when it involves forking over so much money for one of these online business courses (mainly his podcasting course).
