He also helps businesses set up marketing and sales funnels, generate leads, and become authorities in their fields.
Patrick started his Entrepreneurs in London group when he came back from the UK after selling off his business and living in the Dominican Republic. He wanted to keep his business connections and he thought of just bringing everyone once a month to provide more value for everyone and to save money and time.
Having everything to having nothing
Patrick shared his experience of having a very successful business and then losing everything. According to Patrick, it's much better to not have a lot all your life. He has chosen not to dwell on regrets and to just keep going. He has moved on and started a new business and is currently planning to move to other locations.
We also talked about how there is no exact formula for success and how it is different for everyone. Patrick also shared his beliefs and thoughts on spirituality. Patrick also shared his own definition of success after going through his experiences and where he sees himself in several years. He also discussed the importance of making connections especially for entrepreneurs and business owners.
