Today I got to talk with John Lee Dumas the founder of Entrepreneur on Fire.

John is a fellow United States Army Armor Veteran and we got a chance to talk some about what John did while in ROTC, where he started off as kinda of a rebel like so many young kids do when entering college at that age. Then John had a shift in focus and found ways to harness his natural competitiveness and desire to win and used this to his advantage in ROTC and beyond. After the dust settled John found himself the #4 cadet in a very competitive Battalion.

This coupled with many of the skills learned in the military and serving as an Armor Office like The implementation of a militaristic approach to managing systems and his employees to his everyday tasks that are required to operate a business of his size. That good old saying We do more before 9 am than most of the world does all day long definitely applies here.

It was fun talking with another Armor Veteran and I hope everyone enjoys this episode as much as I did. You can find some more information about John’s business below and a great video on what sparked John to launch Entrepreneur on Fire!
