Hey hey! Welcome to episode 142 of Life on Fire TV. On this episode we’re talking with the one and only John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire.

John and I have a one on one chat about how he revolutionized podcasting with his show and brand, Entrepreneur on Fire. We also talk about the mental muscle necessary to face his fears along the way.

If somehow you haven’t heard of John or his podcast Entrepreneur on Fire, you’re one of a handful in the world! His podcast episodes are downloaded by over a million unique users and are heard in over 145 countries around the globe.

The format is simple: he asks entrepreneurs a series of questions in the span of roughly 30 minutes. His unique twist is how often he publishes: 7 days a week.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • What quote inspired John to start his podcast? (12:00)
  • What is the Impostor Syndrome and who suffers from it? (12:55)
  • His first step in creating Entrepreneur on Fire. (18:35)
  • His strategy to land interviews with Seth Godin and Tim Ferriss. (22:30)
  • What is OPA? (32:00)
  • And so much more!

Seven days a week was unheard of in podcasting back in September of 2012 when he launched. Everyone told him it hadn’t been done because it couldn’t be done! But John followed his gut and went for it.

On today’s show he tells his story of how he spent years searching for that thing he was meant to do, he knew his heart there was something he was meant to create but it took him years to find it.

During this interview John shares how he overcame many mental hurdles and difficulties from the inception of his show to today. He candidly talks about how he stared down his own fears and conquered his own Impostor Syndrome to create Entrepreneur on Fire, a world-wide brand.

We also dissect his daily strategy and how he sets up each day for success. He uses what he calls focus: Follow One Course Until Success. He does that with his projects and also his daily tasks. He works one thing, completes it successfully and then moves on to the next.

And we wrap up with two things most people don’t know about him – you’ll definitely want to hear his response to that question! Check it all out on episode 142 of Life on Fire TV! Thanks for being here and we’ll see you next time.
