Play • 27 min

Today on the show we’re chatting with John Lee Dumas, host and founder of Entrepreneur On Fire! Completely taking over the entrepreneurship podcasting space in the early 2010’s, getting millions of downloads each month, helping people learn about being an entrepreneur.

This episode we go over why you have to learn to not quit in order to be successful in the podcasting space, why having passion for what you do is not enough in today’s world, and how the higher the barrier is set, the lower the competition will be. When John started his podcast, he was the only one putting out as much content as he was. People gravitated towards his podcast, because there was such little competition.
