      @Pat Flynn You are the man. I doubt you remember this, but I met you at VidCon a couple of years ago. Terrible conference, but I saw you in the hallway. You must have been on a mission to find the bathroom because you seemed to be in a hurry, but I’m a big fan. Great job at cranking out valuable content lately. Hope we get a chance to chat again some day. Also, I met Azul at the airport a couple of months ago here in San Juan. So weird because he recognized us from the channel, and I recognized him from your podcast. Cheers! -Jim

    Dear Pat Flynn and Team Flynn:

    I feel you do a great job to try to help the community of online entrepreneurs to keep a positive thinking even though we start to see the hard times comming. I´m located in Norway, where I think we are one to two weeks ahead of USA when it comes to corona contamination. More or less the whole country are locked down, and people either dont work or work from home.

    Today I was made aware of your offer to join the «Smart from Scratch-cource» for free through the Ross @podcast insight (Podcast: «Podcast Made Simple») who has made a «free recources list» for the community.

    Well, my point: I hope you, and everyone else who care for others, and offer something during this hard times, will be rewarded. – At least, you have my loyality!

    Thanx for everything you have shared so far and thank you for showing your empathy!

    Greatings from Oslo/Norway!

    In such situation, knowing that we (junior entrepreneur) just started and facing a potential crash, your videos are a big unburdening to us! THANK YOU

    Thanks for this and for the daily livestream.

    The live streams have been a great source of inspiration. The advice. The community. The showing up. Thanks for all this. Proactive all the way!

    I can’t pick just one. All of the above have merit and I’m already addressing points within each of them. So grateful for you and for the community you have built and are building now in these trying times.
