John Lee Dumas on Inspiring Millions

It’s not every day you get to chat with a dude whose podcast is “Best of iTunes 2013.” Todays guest, episode #16, is the one … the only … John Lee Dumas.

John is someone who has passion “in spades” (his words). And man does he.

For those who don’t know John, he’s the guy who launched a podcast just over two years ago called Entrepreneur on Fire. As far as I’m aware, John (Lee) was the first person to publish a podcast 7 days per week.

  • John talked about how he went about finding – then living – his passion.

I do read the show notes and I appreciate when someone takes the time to create them with links. Also, I have been enjoying the show and the amazing people you have interviewed. It is always nice to hear John tell his story in a totally different atmosphere. Very inspiring.
