This is a pretty big moment for me because ever since I started the More Money Podcast back in June 2015, John Lee Dumas was one guess I aspired to get on my show.
Fast-forward 2 years and over 100 episodes and I got him!
So, why did I want to get him on the show so badly? Because he was actually one of the inspirations for me to start my podcast. When I got the idea to start a podcast, I immediately started researching online, and fairly quickly he popped up. He had (and still has) a very successful podcast called Entrepreneurs on Fire, and he also had a free course on how to start a podcast. I took the course and it really helped me start things off on the right foot. Honestly, if I hadn’t taken his free course, I know I would have made all the rookie mistakes and would have taken even longer to propel my podcast into what it is today.
For my interview with him, I just wanted to dive deep into what we were about, and how he got to be so successful as a completely online entrepreneur (he now lives and runs his business from Puerto Rico). I also wanted to know how he does all the things he does and stays sane and grounded. And of course, he has a stellar morning ritual to start his days right, something I know I need to start implementing myself.
This episode isn’t really about personal finance, but I wanted to share it because John is seriously such an inspiration to me. He’s a hustler, he’s a risk-taker, and he’s proof that if you feel unfulfilled and unhappy in your life, you can absolutely change course at any time (it’s never too late!).
