(58:47) Detail Recap:

  • Pat wasn’t all or nothing when he started. It wasn’t simple or the flip of a switch. You need to have a focus somewhere you believe but it isn’t always simple. Don’t give yourself a hard time but be ready to decide when the time comes, and it will come.

  • Read 1,000 True Fans. The goals shouldn’t be millions, but 1000 real fans that could change the game for you.

  • Check out the SwitchPod! The tripod but better.
