Pat Sweet has worked most of his career as an engineer in the rail industry. After reading the 4 hour workweek and some other entrepreneurship books, he got the inspiration to start some side hustles.

He taught himself how to build websites and still creates websites as a side business.

Another action he took was to create his own website: At first he created it because he enjoyed writing about engineering and leadership, but the site rank has grown and he has been able to monetize it.

We talk about his journey, how to validate a product, and where he sees his future: as a product consultant. You might just want to hire Pat as a consultant on your product! He knows his stuff.

Key Takeaways

  1. Portfolio career- you don’t need to work your whole career for one employer
  2. How to validate a product – doesn’t always have to be the final product to test an idea
