Our very first guest is John Lee Dumas from Entrepreneur on Fire. EntrepreneurOnFire is a daily podcast interviewing today’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs. Since our launch in September of 2012, we’ve had the pleasure of featuring entrepreneurs like Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferriss and over 300 more. EntrepreneurOnFire is all about Inspiring Millions. John’s podcast is downloaded over 300,000+ times per month (as of August 2013) and is currently rated the number one Business Podcast in iTunes. I listen to Entrepreneur on Fire Daily, and I am always inspired by John and his guests. EOFire is the reason that I decided to create this podcast!
John takes us on his journey from Providence College as an ROTC cadet, to Fort Knox Kentucky as a Second Lieutenant attending the US Army Armor Officers Basic Course, to Fort Riley Kansas and taking over a Tank Platoon, to his deployment to Iraq. After his return, we learn about what led him to start Entrepreneur on Fire and how his military experience helped him thrive.
