Will your business idea work?


It’s these questions that keep aspiring business owners up at night: “Will my idea work? Are there enough customers? How do I know there isn’t a better idea out there?”

Smart From Scratch® is a hands-on, comprehensive course that enables you to develop a business idea, validate it, and determine if that idea is viable to pursue. Learn how to test whether or not there’s an audience for your business idea.

All business ideas need validation, even this online course. That’s why I launched Smart from Scratch® to a select number of founding students in late 2016. The founding students helped shape the course content with their amazing feedback. Now, thanks to them, Smart From Scratch® is tested, validated, and ready to help you find your business idea!

Meet Your Course Instructor

Hi, I’m Pat Flynn.

I run several successful businesses, including Smart Passive Income, Switchpod, and Green Business Academy. Over the course of the last decade, I’ve conceived of and developed dozens of products and new businesses. I’ve both succeeded and failed, and all the while I’ve charted my progress to find what works and what doesn’t. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of other business owners to learn from their stories, which you can find on The Smart Passive Income Podcast.

I’ve heard the same struggles from aspiring entrepreneurs time and again: “I don’t know how to find a business idea,” or “I don’t know if my idea will work,” or the biggest one, “I’m afraid I will fail.”

I want you to learn from my successes and failures. I’ve poured these experiences into the Smart From Scratch® course to give you insight into the business strategies that truly work from to finish. I’m here to help you find your idea, to figure out if it will work, and to teach you how to fail early so that it doesn’t hurt as much. I’m here to help you—let’s get ed!

A business crash course without the crashing

STEP BY STEP LESSONS TO WALK YOU THROUGH THE PROCESSSmart 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.

Stage 1: Idea and Market Visibility

I’ll teach you how to find an idea that works for you, even if you don’t know where to . Then I’ll walk you through the process of determining whether or not there is a sufficient market to support your potential idea.

Stage 2: Adjust and Refine

You’ll expand upon your idea to make sure you have a very clear sense of what your idea is, who it is for, and precisely what problem it solves. Then you’ll create a simple prototype that you can share with potential customers for feedback.

Stage 3: Testing

I’ll teach you product validation, or how to collect pre-orders, so that you can determine the viability of your idea, and show you what to do if you do—or if you don’t—make any sales.

Is Smart From Scratch right for me?

Smart From Scratch® was designed for students looking to make an impact in the business world but who may not have the tools to help get them there.

You are an aspirer. You yearn to make your mark on the world. Maybe you even have an idea for a business or an amazing product, but you’re not sure what to do next. Or maybe you’re having trouble coming up with an idea in the first place. Smart From Scratch® is the course to help you identify and validate your idea, so you can begin building a business that works.
