This globe was made as a gift for someone I admire greatly, and to whom I’m incredibly grateful. I’ve been listening to Pat Flynn of SmartPassiveIncome.com for the last five years, and it’s no small thanks to him that I own Queen Of Snow Globes and have been able to do this work that I love so much.
Pat’s podcast (The SPI Podcast) became a daily staple for me back in 2012, when I was working full time but also wanting to start my own business. The depth of information and learning that Pat crams into every episode has meant he’s a huge hit in the online business world. And on a more personal note, I learned so much of what I now do from Pat’s podcast. Anyone who knows me has heard me rave about Pat and I cannot recommend him highly enough if you’re interested in learning how to start an online business.
Having listened to Pat for so long, I also know he’s a big fan of the 1985 movie “Back To The Future” (as am I!) so I decided to make him a custom globe, featuring the famous scene where Marty first discovers Doc’s invention – in the Twin Pines Mall carpark.
I was lucky to have a personal contact who very kindly put me in touch with Pat’s assistant Jessica, who agreed to take delivery of the globe as a surprise for Pat. I was very touched to receive a personal thank you email from Pat himself not long after…
Hey Leah, I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received your snow globe in the mail, completely undamaged, and completely awesome! It’s one of the coolest things ever!
It means a lot to me to be in a position to thank those who made my business possible, so this was a really fun project to work on and I’m so glad Pat loves it. In fact, I spied it on his bookshelf in one of his recent Facebook video posts! 🙂
