100 Interviews with 100 Location Independent Entrepreneurs That Have Over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue
Hey listeners, I am very excited about this podcast and this podcast guest for a few reasons. The first reason is that this is podcast #100 of the ‘100 7-Figure Location Independent Entrepreneurs’ series. It has been over a year that we have been hopping on the mic with 7-figure entrepreneurs from all over the world that have built location independent businesses. It has been an incredible ride and we are finishing this chapter of podcasts and getting ready to start a new series that we will announce at the end of this show. Another reason I am excited about this podcast is because we invited the great John Lee Dumas from Entrepreneur on Fire podcast to join us. John was the original podcaster to publish short daily episodes interviewing entrepreneurs and he really helped the podcasting world grow, especially for entrepreneurs. John has done a fantastic job creating a 7-figure location independent podcast model. He has won iTunes podcast of the year in 2013, now he is still podcasting and has published over 2000 episodes with over 1,000,000 listens per month!
John hops on the mic with us today to chat about what it takes to be a podcaster in today's world. He shares about some of the things that are important when building a podcast and he recommends many things that podcasters should not be doing. We talk about some of the best tactics to theme your podcast and how to maximize your rankings and subscribers.
