Today’s guest is a podcasting legend who’s inspired millions to act on their entrepreneurial dreams – including YOURS TRULY. He is the Founder and Host of EntrepreneurOnFire, an award winning and uber successful podcast where he interviews incredibly inspiring entrepreneurs 7-days a week… His name is John Lee Dumas.

John started his career in the US Army where he served for 7 years, 3 in active duty and 4 in the Army Reserves, before becoming a civilian at age 26. He then dabbled in a variety of professions, including working in corporate finance, a tech start-up and real estate, not to mention a semester long stint in Law School! But nothing felt right until he discovered podcasts… first as an avid listener and now as the creator of his own podcast, EntrepreneurOnFire. He’s also created Podcasters’ Paradise, an online community filled with passionate podcasters, video tutorials and so much more that will help you create, grow and monetize your podcast. I am a proud member of this community.

Three takeaways from our interview:

— How John lost $1,000 in the stock market before turning 10 years old

— The key influencer who helped shape his financial philosophy

— Why John publishes his monthly income reports and states his earnings and losses to the penny.
