Success On Fire – John Lee Dumas

Welcome back to episode 32 of the Greatness Project.  In this episode, I chat with uber-successful podcaster John Lee Dumas.

Success on Fire - John Lee Dumas


John Lee Dumas, is one of the top podcasters rocking the mic, with his award-winning podcast Entrepreneurs on Fire.  John was an Officer in the U.S. Army for 4 years, and he spent 13 months stationed in Iraq. Once he got out of the army, he struggled to find his mission in life. He tried law school before dropping out…. he then spent some time in corporate finance, and when that didn’t work, he moved on to selling commercial real estate.

While John was on the daily grind, he would take advantage of his commute while listening to podcasts.  It was during those commutes that he would grow frustrated because there weren’t any podcasters releasing daily episodes.  His favorite types of podcasts, were shows that interviewed entrepreneurs.

Shortly after,  John realized that an opportunity existed to provide a podcast that aired 7 days a week.  So, John decided to seize his moment and launched his podcast back in 2012.  His intent was to provide listeners with quality  interviews of entrepreneurs that people could benefit from every single day.

John has since gone on to create one of the most popular and well-known podcasts to-date, especially in the entrepreneurship and business world.  John is also the author of multiple books, courses, and resources that are designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs…  and it is through those resources that John has been able to build a highly leveraged business that earns him around a quarter million a month.

John and I chat about his journey, some of the obstacles he had to overcome before his success came, and a handful of other ‘value bombs’ that will get you fired up!
