    Love this article! Not only does John explain how podcasting has been booming, but also how to go about it to take your business to the next level. Completely inspiring! John and Entrepreneur on Fire are the real deal, there’s no surprise why John has been able to take his business into orbit though his podcast and others do too!

    1. John Lee Dumas

      Dean, you are in the top 5% of my world! Rock on!

  20. Justin Williams

    Amazing Post guys! I have been fortunate enough to learn from John and now have my own podcast! We just started monetizing a few weeks ago and launched an online community and made just over $5,000 our first month. Although I started my site first, I am pretty sure just about all of them found me through my podcast!

    1. John Lee Dumas

      JW, keep killing it and remember, 2014 is the year of the Podcast AND the live webinar!

  21. Brian Schmitt

    Great case for podcasting! Something I’ve found works really well for the busy entrepreneur is to use something like’s approach. It’s a great way to get a podcast and blog going with less time than most people spend on making a podcast, let alone writing a blog post. They also have a great (free) tool for determining what kind of material you should cover.

    1. John Lee Dumas

      BS, thanks for stopping by

  22. Paul Clifford

    Great post John.. I’m already a fan and started podcasting. Continually inspired by Entrepreneur on Fire.

  23. Carey Green

    My clients are increasingly finding that podcasting is ramping up their exposure, client-base, and business profits exponentially. And it doesn’t have to be a DIY thing, either. I’m finding a niche of business owners our there who want to have the podcast, but need someone else to do it for them. I think these folks should have the option to maximize the power of a podcast too. Just like I need someone else to fix my car (because I don’t know how to do it), there’s a huge opportunity for everyone who wants a podcast to have a podcast, because there are those who know how to create it and help them get it out to the world. Great post!

    1. John Lee Dumas

      Great feedback Carey..thanks!
