Episode #19: John Lee Dumas – Podcasting Legend, Host of Entrepreneurs on Fire
John Lee Dumas (JLD), the Podcasting Legend and Host of Entrepreneurs on Fire, joins the show for a rapid-fire 15 Questions in 15 Minutes! JLD is an absolute icon in the podcasting world and a massive inspiration for this podcast. He is the best to ever build a business and brand around a podcast, and has unmatched discipline – he’s interviewed over 2,000 entrepreneurs! These entrepreneurs include any big name you can think of, including Tony Robbins, Seth Godin, GaryVee, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferriss, and more. JLD served in the U.S. Army for 8 years before working a few different jobs in a few different cities. He discovered podcasting during his long commutes but couldn’t find a podcast that was released frequently enough to satisfy his listening needs. That’s when his idea was born – a daily entrepreneur podcast! I read about JLD’s story in GaryVee’s Crushing It! and dreamed of having him on our podcast. Flash forward and here we are! This episode covers everything from how JLD built his business off podcasting to how to find a mentor. Here’s a small sample of what you will hear in this episode:
- JLD’s advice for any podcaster
- What will the future of podcasting look like
- Why you should stay transparent with your business
- How to stay committed doing something every single day
- The benefits of virtual assistants
- How to get in touch with any big name
- Why your morning routine can inspire creativity
- How to travel the world while earning income
