That’s 30 pieces of trash and 210 total for the entire week that we’ll be removing from our streets.

TODAY’S GUEST

In today’s episode, Eva and Olga welcome John Lee Dumas, the founder and host of Entrepreneur On Fire (EOFire). John has interviewed more than 1,500 of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, including heavyweights such as Tony Robbins, Guy Kawasaki, Tim Ferriss, Jack Canfield and many more!

Eva and Olga talk to John about his journey from coming up with the concept for EOFire, moving forward with the launch, and ultimately growing the podcast to one of the most popular in all of iTunes.  John has inspired thousands of other podcasters to launch and succeed with their own shows, and he has been a huge inspiration to us personally to start the Dream Big Podcast.   It was an absolute honor to have him as our guest.

Since the recording of this episode, John has launched a Kickstarter for the Mastery Journal,  a step-by-step guide to mastering productivity, discipline & focus in 100 days.  This is a follow-up project to his very successful Freedom Journal Kickstarter last year which we used to plan the launch of the Dream Big Podcast.   We give both journals our highest recommendation!

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • How John’s journey into the podcasting world started.
  • How John is still improving the art of interviewing after 4 years and 1,500 interviews on his podcast, EOFire.
  • Where he finds the motivation to get better at his craft.
  • What qualities a great interviewer must have, and how interviewing skills can be applied to your daily life.
  • Why he decided to create his first physical product, the Freedom Journal.
  • Why a lot of people fail to achieve their goals.
  • What a SMART goal is and how you can write your own and achieve it.

RESOURCES

In this episode, John shares how learning to be a good listener and asking good questions — the central skills of being an interviewer — can have a positive impact on your life. Since John is one of the most prolific interviewers in all of iTunes, we thought it would be appropriate this week to challenge you to practice your skills as an interviewer.   How fun would it be to conduct an interview?! Call up a friend or family member and arrange a 20-minute interview where you can learn all sorts of interesting things about them. To inspire you to complete this challenge, we even created this adorable download that you can customize with your face and name, and it is 100% free to download.
