About John Lee Dumas

John Lee Dumas is the founder and host of EOFire, a top ranked business podcast where he interviews inspiring entrepreneurs daily. Before getting into the podcast space, he served eight years in the army. After he came back, he went through a six year struggle in his search for meaning and making an impact. His journey took him through a law school to corporate finance to real estate. With some wins and some failures, he just wasn’t happy.

So, in his search for content he discovered some incredible podcasts which were free, valuable and constant. But he found out that the frequency in which they were published wasn’t enough for him so he started his own podcast Entrepreneur on Fire which is published 7 days a week. As of now, there are almost 1400 episodes published with over a million monthly listeners and 30 million downloads to date.

Key Takeaways

  • It really is important to distinguish yourself to make better stuff and be better at what you do.
  • You are not going to be awesome from day one. Keep working hard every single day to get a little bit better.
  • It is not about the hack or the technology. We have to run the miles.
  • Create the solution for your avatar.
  • Don’t force out more than you can really get out there in a quality way. People want the quality so work on it.

Three Habits for Success

Creating (1) free, (2) valuable and (3) consistent content.

Biggest Hurdle

The Imposter Syndrome due to which high-achieving individuals are terrified and are unable to internalize their accomplishments.

Looking Into the Future

We need to focus our energy and our greatest impact on specific avatars that we want to serve. If you try to resonate with everybody, you resonate with no one. Just know who you are at your core, know exactly who you want to serve and then just serve that person or those few. Those few people even that one person will grow into a much bigger tribe.

The Doozy

Stop taking life so seriously. You have a long road ahead of you. There’s going to be ups, there’s going to be downs. Enjoy the moment. Work hard and chill out.
