More about our guest, Pat Flynn.

Pat Flynn is the founder of SmartPassiveIncome.com (SPI) and the author of the best-selling book Will It Fly. His family is the primary motivation for everything that he does, and you’ll hear him mention them often throughout the SPI site. His wife, April, and two kids, as well as their dog, Gizmo play an integral part in how he prioritizes his business growth. He says that "The best part about my job is that it allows me to plan my day around my family, not around my business."

We love how Pat how he approaches his business...

When I started Smart Passive Income back in 2008, my goal was simple: share the strategies that have helped me grow my online business. Since that time, it has become remarkably easy to find advice on internet marketing and starting an online business—but what has gotten harder is finding ethical advice that has been properly tested.

My belief in helping you learn is simple: Share the truth, be honest, work hard, and lead by example. That’s what I’m all about, and that’s what SPI is all about.

July Promo

Hi, I'm Veronica. Passionate about preserving items from the past, and incorporating them into modern life, my boutique Vintage Meet Modern was born in 2011  I have loved jewelry all my life. Getting to play in my grandmother's jewelry box was one of the highlights of many Sunday afternoons as a child. Later in life, I found myself surrounded by jewelry again while working at Neiman Marcus specializing in designer jewelry and also working as a stylist. With 20 years experience in the fashion, retail, styling, and design industry my vision was to create an upscale shopping experience online focusing on the needs of clients who want to accessorize their life with something, unique, historical, and completely wearable --today, tomorrow, forever. Shop Vintage Meet Modern.

THE BRAND

THEIT creates camera bags for photographers that value both style and substance. With designs that aim to capture classic modernity with a sense of playfulness, this philosophy exemplifies the essence of the THEIT customer: someone who is independent, inspired, and full of life, who cannot help but to capture the beauty in her world through the lens. An homage to the well-known fashion term “the it” bag, the brand represents more than the most coveted piece for the season, but a new wave of design enabling style, function and versatility for the fashion-minded photographer. Inspired by the runway and the streets, THEIT’s vision is to uphold a fashion standard that helps photographers live their dreams in style. Visit THEIT's website for more beautiful designs!

THE STORY

Nicole Fajardo, founder and director of THEIT, conceptualized the idea while working as an international flight attendant based in Dubai. Years of experience working in management, marketing and visual design, and a vehement love for fashion took on a new life while she traveled the world and developed an interest in capturing the moments around her through the camera lens. This passion for photography led her to faraway locales, where she dined in Paris, shopped on the side streets of India, and daydreamed along the canals of Venice – the only thing that was missing from these jet-setting travels was a fashionable camera bag to protect her gear. A fruitless search sparked a dream and a vision, and THEIT was launched in 2010.
