Smart From Scratch
How to Find a Winning Business Idea & Land Your First Customer
Hi, I’m Pat
Here’s Why I Created Smart From Scratch
I’ve both failed and succeeded in building products and businesses. I’ve poured these experiences into the Smart From Scratch course to give you insight into the business strategies that truly work from start to finish.
A Business Crash Course (Without the Crashing)
Smart From Scratch was designed for your success. Each and every facet of the course, from its length to action items, was carefully planned to serve that goal.
Course length: The length of the course is up to you, with three distinct stages to get you from idea to business.
