Welcome to Episode 31 of Leadership On Tap | Talking Leadership Development & Reviewing Great Beer! This week we had the awesome privilege to interview an Army Veteran who refused to settle for mediocrity after leaving active duty – in fact, he’s flat out ON FIRE! In this episode, John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur On Fire joined the show and shared some valuable advice for following your passion, as well as practical advice on how to actually achieve your goals.  A little background on John – he is the Founder and Host of EntrepreneurOnFire, a daily podcast that interviews todays most inspiring and successful Entrepreneurs.  EntrepreneurOnFire tells the journey of the spotlighted guest, sharing their early failures, AHA moments, and insight into what is working for them now and why.  Every show ends with a 5-question “Lightning Round” that pulls priceless nuggets of information from these incredibly successful Entrepreneurs.  Before this extremely successful venture, John struggled for a few years trying to find work he loved after the Army. He brought a TON of priceless nuggets on this week’s episode. So grab a brew (or a cup of coffee if your driving), sit back and enjoy the show!
