Clay and John Lee Dumas from the EOFire podcast teach everything you need to know about how to launch a successful podcast while also interviewing Chumbawamba’s lead singer Dunstan Bruce.
Who is John Lee Dumas?
Now, known as one of the top earning podcasters on the planet (He brought in $182,208.00 of income during October of 2019), however, John Lee Dumas had to start somewhere just like you. Upon leaving the U.S. Army, he enrolled at Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island. He then dropped out of college after only one semester. Dumas then took a job working in corporate finance for John Hancock in Boston before moving to New York City to begin working for a technology startup. He then moved to San Diego in 2009.
FUN FACT: Move To Puerto Rico, Slash Your Taxes To Zero? Not Exactly
In 2011 he moved back to Maine to start a career in commercial real estate. While getting started in this new career he found himself listening to podcasts during his long commute and he noticed that none of his favorite podcasts provided content daily, and that’s when he had his epiphany. He believed that if he could develop a daily podcast focused on interviewing successful entrepreneurs it would resonate with his target audience of entrepreneurs. He came up with the name, Entrepreneur On Fire and decided to call it EOFire for short.
Podcast Launch by John Lee Dumas
Daily he continued to grind away after first launching his podcast in September 22, 2012. More and more subscribers began to flock to his podcast as a result of his consistent passionate delivery, the daily format, and his ever rising search engine rank (the more podcasts you produce and transcribe the higher you will rise in Google search results) he then created the book called, Podcast Launch, which he published in the Amazon bookstore. In 2013 fueled by the success of both his book and his podcast he launched the Podcasters’ Paradise (which is a community of podcasters).
NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “27 Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.[a] 28 An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends. 29 Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.[b]” – Proverbs 16:27-29
Once you have built a loyal audience, companies that are looking to reach your audience will typically reach out to you about advertising on your show. As an example, if you listen to The Tim Ferriss Show titled #367: Eric Schmidt – Lessons from a Trillion-Dollar Coach (available to listen to at https://tim.blog/2019/04/09/eric-schmidt/) you are going to hear commercials for the first 5 minutes of his show) and that is how Tim Ferriss gets paid. However, the amount that you can charge advertisers per download ranges wildly depending upon the loyalty of a host’s audience. Some podcasts charge $20 per 1,000 downloads, while other successful podcasters like Tim Ferriss and John Lee Dumas have made up their own pricing structure that best serves them and their advertisers. At the end of the day you can charge advertisers what you want to charge them if you have a MASSIVE audience. However, you must have a MASSIVE audience before you can or should charge any advertisers anything.

John Lee Dumas has partnered with Kate Lynn Erickson in both his business and his life. https://tomandariana.com/adding-your-partner-in-life-as-your-partner-in-business-with-john-lee-dumas-kate-erickson/
NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “So, Kate and I were neighbors in San Diego. I decided to move back to Maine for a job back in 2011. The last couple weeks of me living there, we had only been friends. We started a little tryst going. We had an amazing–I don’t actually know what that word means. We became lovers in the last two weeks of being in San Diego.
And then true to my word, I did move back to Maine for my job as a commercial broker. We decided that we wanted to continue to see each other, albeit from afar, so I invited her out to Maine in August, so just a couple months after I moved back. It was just one night lying in bed about to drift off to sleep and I turned to Kate and I said, “I love you.” – John Lee Dumas
Why did John Lee Dumas move to Puerto Rico?
John Lee Dumas grew up in Maine for the first 18 years of his life. However, after highschool he moved often from Providence College to the Army, he’s lived in Boston, San Diego, New York, and now he calls Puerto Rico his home.
FACT: California’s state income tax rates have a large range – from 1% to 12.3%. Another 1% surcharge, the mental health services tax, is collected from taxpayers whose incomes are over $1 million per year. This makes California’s top marginal income tax rate a whopping 13.3%
FACT: The federal individual income tax has seven tax rates ranging from 10 percent to 37 percent (table 1). The rates apply to taxable income—adjusted gross income minus either the standard deduction or allowable itemized deductions. Income up to the standard deduction (or itemized deductions) is thus taxed at a zero rate.
After much research, John Lee Dumas decided his new home should be in Puerto Rico where his income tax would be just 4% as opposed to his combined income tax rate of 50.3% (after you factor in both federal and California state income tax).
What does John Lee Dumas’ house look like?
After somehow convincing his girlfriend Kate Lynn Erickson to move with him (by only promising they would relocate back to San Diego if she didn’t like Puerto Rico) he began producing his show out of his home studio in beautiful Puerto Rico. Out of all the beautiful countries and cities in the world, why did he choose Puerto Rico? He mainly chose Puerto Rico because he wanted to dramatically lower his taxes by taking advantage of the Act 22 of 2012. Which offers tax shelter for entrepreneurs.
John Lee Dumas and Kate lynn Erickson have found a beautiful five bedroom, five bathroom, 5,000 sq ft home that over looks gorgeous scenery! If you would like to have a virtual tour of their home click on the link below:

When, how and where did he start?
NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “One mistake I see entrepreneurs make again and again is thinking that starting an online business happens fast, and that you get to just skip to the generating revenue part.” – John Lee Dumas
NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “I didn’t run fancy ads or build multi-level funnels or have a PR representative. I put my head down, created insanely valuable content for Fire Nation, and I made myself present whenever possible in order to build real relationships and partnerships.” – John Lee Dumas
NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “In 2015, I was ready to try something different. We had created the online mastermind, and then two online communities and training courses.
A recurring question I kept hearing from Fire Nation was: “You’ve interviewed over 1,000 inspiring and successful entrepreneurs – what do they all have in common?” – John Lee Dumas
It didn’t happen overnight, but that question gave me a BIG idea: the one thing my interviewees had in common: they knew how to set and accomplish goals.
That’s when I started working on my first physical Journal, The Freedom Journal: Accomplish your #1 Goal in 100 Days.” – John Lee Dumas

Barbara Corcoran who founded an extremely successful real estate brokerage group named The Corcoran Group. She then sold The Corcoran Group for $66 million in the year 2001!
With all the successful entrepreneurs he’s interviewed, he’s found that there are underlying principles that they each share! One consistent principle that John Lee Dumas has found, is every successful entrepreneur is they all WORK HARD! They really put in the elbow grease to get them to where them want to go! It’s all in your mindset. You have to see where your business will go. You Have to hustle hard every day in the beginning.

What is the John Lee Dumas income report and why is it important?
Paraphrase the following:
One reason why John Lee dumas wanted to create his own podcast, was so that those on daily commutes to work could be consuming something more beneficial, and productive rather than just listening to the same songs on loop all day. He wanted to create a podcast where listeners could hear about the nitty gritty details of starting your own business. Not just the light fluffy piece about how they’re successful.
John Lee Dumas wasn’t even making money off his podcasts until 9 months of creating, interviewing, and releasing podcasts everyday. There were many people and even some mentors, who told him that his daily podcast model would never be successful. However he persevered, was determined, and stayed Focused! Focus is a word that he has repeatedly found to be at the root of many entrepreneurs success. He even created an acronym for the word. Follow One Course Until Success.
Once John Lee Dumas started making $50,000-$100,000 revenue on his podcasts, he wanted all of his financial reports to be transparent. He wanted to inspire others who were interested in creating a podcast of their own.
He also wanted those who were participating in his webinars/courses to see that he wasn’t just a slimy, dishonest salesperson. Because those are the same thoughts he used to have regarding online courses.
He also offers free, valuable, deliverable. And consistent content. If you are signing up for a free course, not only are you receiving great knowledge at zero expense! But it’s a;so a great marketing tool for the company.

He begins by writing in his freedom journal, meditating, and exercising daily. Then he showers, eats and gets ready for the day. By 7 in the morning, he is ready to ROCK and ROLL! He then has time set aside to focus on creating interviews, podcasts and working on his business.
How does John Lee Dumas stay fired up and motivated while creating Entrepreneurs of Fire. According to John Lee Dumas, one incredible benefit of creating a podcast where you interview hundreds of successful, inspiring and driven entrepreneurs, is you get TO INTERVIEW THOUSANDS OF SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS! After speaking with these inspiring successful men and women, you get to ask them questions about how, and why they got started. What keeps them going, and you get to hear about the nitty gritty about the road to success. So after every single interview John Lee Dumas was left feeling fired up and determined!

How John Lee Dumas built a $200,000 per month podcast business
If you’re wondering, how in the world did John Lee Dumas build his $ 200,000 a month revenue podcast…I’m going to tell you a secret. He wasn’t profitable till 9 months in to recording and releasing podcasts. He became successful even when everyone else told him he wouldn’t because he stayed focused, he stayed determined, and he stayed consistent. John Lee Dumas admits that when he first quit his job and started Entrepreneurs on Fire, he would wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat nervous and worried that he wouldn’t make it as a successful entrepreneur. That he would be stuck in the cubicle life that just wasn’t for him. It was then in the middle of the night that he would convince himself that in the morning, he would give it all up for the financial security a corporate job offered. However every morning he woke up, and found within himself the determination to keep going for just one.more.day. He kept that up until he saw the success he dreamt of. You have to believe in yourself because no one else will! When he first started his business podcasts weren’t quite the craze they are now. Many people still didn’t know they existed or what the really were! So many of his friends and family members including mentors doubted him.
He also hustled harder than anyone he knew! He automated his savings, he would complete up to 16 interviews per day! He had a rigorous morning and daily schedule where he would spend an hour and a half taking care of himself, meditating, exercising, and planning his day. He got 8 hours of sleep every night, because a well rested mind can think more clearly and work harder. He would email a possible candidate for the show or reach out and inquire about an interview every single day. From 2012 to 2015/2016 he worked hard every single day. He knew that unless he worked hard, and put forth the effort, and wouldn’t cross the finish line of success he created in his mind. Any time he felt less motivated, or discouraged it always helped that what he did for a living was interviewed some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs! He got to ask them numerous questions to find out how they did it!

Research the G.O.A.T.S. and What Makes Them Great
As soon as possible I would encourage you to OBSESSIVELY LISTEN TO THE SHOWS that are currently dominating your podcast niche and ask yourself why they are considered to be so great. As a business podcaster, I consistently listening to the business and life-optimization podcasts created by John Lee Dumas and his Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast, Tim Ferriss and his The Tim Ferriss Show, or Joe Rogan and his The Joe Rogan Experience. As I listen I ask myself, “Why do I only have 500,000 downloads per month when these guys have millions of downloads per week?” As I’ve asked myself that question, I have always found an obvious answer and something better that I could be doing.

This list was last updated in July 2019
On John Lee Dumas’s website he has taken the time needed to actually list out all of the podcast gear and equipment that you will need in order to produce a high quality podcast.
John Lee Dumas believes that many start-up podcasters tend to make things too complicated and that it really does not have to be super expensive to successfully launch and sustain a world-class podcast.
Listed below John Lee Dumas personally took the time to list out and link to each and every product that he recommends and he will earn a commission for every product that you decide to buy if you decide to purchase through his links. So purchase through his links.
“On a Tight Budget” / Low End Budget:
This will provide you with a noise noise-canceling podcast microphone that typically costs around just $20. Although it is fairly unbelievable, for $20 you are actually buying both an actual headset, and your podcast microphone at the same time. This microphone plugs into your computer using a USB port so it is super easy to set up.
On a Middle-of-the-Road / Medium Range Budget:
The ATR2100 USB is a microphone that was created to be simple, effective and as high-quality as it can possibly be for under $100. Because this microphone also plugs in via your computer’s USB input, it functions very easily with nearly all recording software.
John Lee Dumas’ life partner and business partner, Kate has chosen to use this microphone since 2014 and both John Lee Dumas and Kate believe that this microphone is the best microphone when you factor in quality, price and ease of use.
What does the ATR2100 cost?
This microphone usually costs around $70 to $80.
What accessories are available and needed for the ATR-2100?
To get the most out of your audio experience with the ATR-2100 you may want to consider using the
This is essentially a basic and simple boom arm with zero cables includes and it is designed to work perfectly with the ATR2100 microphone when mounted on a desk.
The ATR2100 microphone also comes standard with a desktop mounted stand, so you don’t necessarily have to go out and purchase a boom arm, it really just depends on your preferences and your overall podcast setup.
The ATR2100 also comes with its own desktop stand, so a boom arm isn’t necessary. It just depends on your podcast setup.
One great tool that you can use to keep your podcast microphone sound quality from being impacted by interference is to use a simple foam ball cover.
This particular foam ball piece of equipment produces sound quality that is very similar to the sound quality you would experience when adding a screen pop-filter to your microphone. This foam ball piece is perfect for the ATR2100 microphone.
The “Money Is No-Problem” The High End Setup:
If you are in a spot in life where money is no problem you may want to consider using the Heil Sound PR40. This microphone is ideal for live sound, recording, and broadcast applications.
This microphone is not the microphone that John Lee Dumas would recommend for a podcaster who is just getting started because of the complexity and the price associated with the microphone.
“The Heil PR40 is for the more advanced podcaster who knows their way around a higher level podcast setup, and the price proves it. This podcast microphone typically costs around $325.” – John Lee Dumas
Optional Accessories for the Heil PR40 Microphone
The PRSM Shock Mount was designed to become a very flexible support system that makes it easier for podcasters and broadcasters to decrease low-frequency sounds and rumbles that can be heard by the microphone by both damping and absorbing vibrations that will inevitably be detected from your podcast setup and studio.
The best boom stand available for podcasters is The Heil Sound PL-2T. This overhead boom stand was created to use a system involving the use of perfectly tuned and and balanced internal springs rather than those unsightly and mechanically unreliable outboard springs used by boom stand makers of much less quality.
This pop filter provides a truly an incredible tool for broadcasters and podcasters alike. The fine mesh metal screen DRAMATICALLY reduces the amount of undesirable P-Popping while also maintaining and elevating the level of high-end frequency response.
Audio Podcast Recording and Editing Software:
John Lee Dumas’ favorite audio editing software is Adobe’s Audition, which I also LOVE. Adobe Audition does work on both the MAC and PC computers. Adobe Audition is now available for an incredibly low price of just $20 per month.
Adobe Premier: If you are looking to produce first class videos, Adobe Premier provides everything that you would ever need. Currently it is also available via the Adobe Creative Cloud for a small monthly fee of just $19.99 per month.
This is the podcast player that we use at The Thrivetime Show and if you will be willing to use the promo code FIRE when you sign up with Libsyn, you will actually get the remainder of this month and the next month 100% free.

So, that’s happening five days a week. I’m reading these things and we’re continuing that open line of communication.
