  1. Nice piece here. I agree that hard work is essential. Many people probably miss out on opportunities because they don’t put in the work. As you made me think of with your story, it also has something to do with being personal.

      Thanks Corey! I think a lot of folks look for the easy way or a shortcut. Perhaps we should make a new phrase, you get what you work for? That extra personal touch really spoke volumes!

    I’m checking out Pat Flynn now. Thanks for the tip.

  3. This was really interesting. Thanks for sharing! Hard work is essential to any kind of success. 100% agree with you on that! Keep up the good work.

    • Buck Inspire says:

      Thanks Jon! I think it’s human nature to want the most for the least amount of work. But if you really think about it, the hardest workers usually are the most successful as well!

    Another great podcast…although I totally should have been your listener of the week. He must have slipped you $20. πŸ™‚

    Nice job on getting Pat Flynn’s attention! I’d love to stick around, but I have lots of work to do if I’m going to be the hardest working dude on the internet.

    Thanks for the honor, Buck! Hearing my site in the same podcast as Pat Flynn is not bad either.

    Will go check it out right now…

  7. You can rely on luck or hard work, but you can’t control luck unless you create your own πŸ™‚

  8. Works harder than everyone else out there.

    I’m so with you! Sometimes I am so amazed by the work ethic of some of those who are just ridiculously successful, such as Pat Flynn. Just like you said, with so many successes under his belt, he could rest on them and simply coast at a slower rate. Instead, he is still driven. That’s an awesome takeaway! I have had similar experiences when I have contacted some of the larger blog owners too.

  9. I too am impressed by Pat Flynn. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s one of the hardest working people out there. Having seen him in person at FINCON I have to say that he’s a very likeable and impressive person all-round. Outsized success is within reach of all of us if we set goals and work hard to achieve them, I believe.

    • Buck Inspire says:

      I haven’t had the pleasure, but what I gather, he seems very likeable and impressive. I agree with you on outsized success within reach for all of us. Let’s get to it!

  10. Pat says:

    Hey Buck – thanks again for the audio about me – I’m more than honored, and it means a lot.

    I think it’s really more about working smarter though, not necessarily harder.

    In other words, you can work and work and work really hard but still not get anything accomplished, but as long as what you’re working on is something that’s going to benefit you, and you’re actually working TOWARDS something, instead of just working to keep busy, that’s when things start to happen.

    Yes, it may seem like a lot of work to come over to different blogs that mention me and interact, but I know that’s smart because, well, as you can see I’ve made an impact on you and you were gracious enough to pass that along to your subscribers and listeners (thanks again by the way!).

    I’m glad I didn’t kill your blog πŸ™‚


    • Buck Inspire says:

      You’re welcome Pat! I stand corrected. Working harder doing busy work will give you the same results as spinning your wheels. Excellent point. Work smarter, not harder, would you say? I’m glad you didn’t kill my blog, too! Also, congrats on your movie deal. Exciting stuff. Looks like someone’s going Hollywood on us!

  11. Jai Catalano says:

    I want to work as hard as PF. Actually I am working pretty hard so it’s nice to be “Inspire” by you.

    Thanks Buck.


  12. Dr Dean says:

    Good job, hard work and patience is the secret, but as Pat said, it’s focused work, not busywork.

  13. You’re right. Many people claim they want to blog/tweet/facebook for a living, but they are horrible at interacting with the very people who made/make them who they are. I know that Pat does a great job because not too long ago, I commented on one of his status updates on facebook. He replied directly to me. That type of thing is rare these days and certainly makes you feel special. The moral of the story is: whatever you do, you should do it well. Anything else is a disservice to yourself and your clients/customers/followers.
