John Lee Dumas POST PIC C

Welcome to episode 053 of Mud Stories!

Mud Stories is a podcast dedicated to bringing you inspiration in your muddiest moments, hope to make it through your mud, and encouragement for you to know, you are not alone.

In today’s episode I’m talking with John Lee Dumas–podcaster, entrepreneur, U.S. Army veteran, and the founder of his business and podcast, Entrepreneur on Fire. John is a mentor to many in podcasting and webinar hosting, and offers many free tutorials, as well as paid mastermind groups, which assist thousands to take action and realize their dreams can come true with discipline, determination, and hard work.

John is a former U.S. Army Captain, who served a thirteen-month deployment tour to Iraq in 2003-2004 in addition to his years of active and reserve military commitment stateside. John values transparency and generosity in his business and relationships, and resides in San Diego, California with his better half, Kate Ericksonwho hosts her own audio blog entitled Kate’s Take.

In this episode John shares about:

  • Growing up in Maine
  • His time deployed to Iraq
  • The importance of receiving letters from home
  • And the challenges of re-entry stateside after deployment

John discusses:

  • His post traumatic stress disorder and recovery
  • His gratitude for the United States
  • The importance of counseling and supportive relationships in our lives
  • And offers some advice to those who are facing their own “mud”

In large part it was because of John’s podcast mentoring that this Mud Stories Podcast was born, and I am so thankful to have him join us to celebrate the completion of our first full year of podcasting!

And after you listen, I’d be SO grateful if you’d take the time to give a rating or review over at iTunes, to help others find this podcast. (follow the instructions below)
