What does it take to keep the flames of success burning?
Recently, I sat down for a Skype call with John Lee Dumas, founder of Entrepreneur on Fire and author of The Freedom Journal. John and his team have pulled in nearly seven million dollars in net income in just three years on the EOFire platform, and his success is a great example of how listeners can fuel their own dreams.
As we talk, you’ll learn:
- How inspiration can come from anywhere: a basketball highlight reel inspired the name of Dumas’s company!
- What it is that entrepreneurs really want from their ventures—and how to get it.
- Why it is that so many talented entrepreneurs fail.
- How to create success instead of chasing it.
We talk about the importance of filling a void for a very specific niche, making a big impact in a small area instead of tiny impacts in many areas, and why a good mentor is crucial to entrepreneurial success. His advice to those of you watching: create your own destiny.
“If you want to be, do. It’s simple, my friends. I wanted to be a podcaster, I had to podcast.”
