YBB020: John Lee Dumas Shares His First Big Break and His New Book

Your Big Break Podcast, January 27, 2016

Your Big Break Podcast welcomes Creator of EOFire.com and TheFreedomJournal.com

Six months ago, I was freaking out. I had decided to pitch John Lee Dumas (host of Entrepreneur on Fire) to be on his daily podcast show. I did not truly feel ready, but I went for it and alas (and huzzah)… he said YES. John has interviewed +1200 people and has over +1,000,000 downloads of his podcast per month. He started small and built his brand over the last three years, and is now in a position to give entrepreneurs their big break. I’m so grateful/jazzed to be on episode 1083. So it is a supreme honour to share that the tables have turned, and I invited John to share his story on Your Big Break podcast…and this time, he said YES! Right now John is promoting his Kickstarter campaign for his new book TheFreedomJournal.com. If you’re interested in being given a tool to help you tackle the next 100 days with FOCUS, get yourself a copy right here.
