IN THIS EPISODE: of Rise and Grind, episode 43 we chat with John Lee Dumas the host of Entrepreneur on Fire or EOFire in short, one of the most famous and biggest business podcasts out there. For that reason I decided to call this episode "Enough said" as JLD and EOFire are quite well known. The funny thing is that just 4 years ago John was feeling pretty lost in life. John Lee Dumas story is very interesting . He spent 10 years in the U.S. army more than a year of which as an Armor Platoon Leader tour of duty in Iraq. Upon leaving the U.S. Army, Dumas enrolled in Law School but he quit just after a semester as he hated it. After that he worked in Finance, Tech and even real estate but he simply couldn't find his way to happiness. Everything changed has he started listening to podcasts as Pat Flynn's SPI and he loved it. He realised none of his favorite Podcasts offered daily content. This gave him the idea of starting his own podcast. EOFire launched September 22, 2012 and the rest is history. Today he makes 7-figures a year, has a team of 7 and has interviewed over 1400 entrepreneurs. Appart from EOFire, Dumas has recently created a great productivity journal to help people achieve their goal, The Freedom Journal. He is now creating another productivity journal called The Mastery Journal to help people have more discipline. He also runs a podcasting course called Podcasters Paradise.
