Welcome to episode 4 of the Go For Launch podcast!

This episode is also on iTunes, Soundcloud and Stitcher.

Today’s show features two special guests, John Lee Dumas and Kate Erickson of Entrepreneur On Fire and Kate’s Take. I spoke to John and Kate from the deck of the USS Midway in San Diego, California, during the opening night party at Social Media Marketing World.

John served four years of active duty in the United States Army and four years in the reserves, earning the rank of Captain. He saw action first-hand in Iraq, Kuwait and other countries. Between tours of duty, he also had full-time jobs in the insurance and real estate fields before having what he calls a “light bulb” moment to become an entrepreneur. Seeing the lack of a daily podcast for entrepreneurs, John boldly went where no one had gone before and started Entrepreneur on Fire in mid-2012. Since then, working hand-in-hand with Kate they have molded Entrepreneur On Fire into one of the world’s top podcasts and earned numerous awards.

I hope you enjoy this interview with John and Kate, and thanks for listening!

    Great podcast Brandon! Super psyched that you wore the jumpsuit! Your mastermind group was there with you in spirit…rocking it with John Lee Dumas and Kate Erickson!

    • Stacey, you guys were definitely on my mind as I put on the GFL flight suit! It was fun…and of course it didn’t hurt that the event was on an aircraft carrier.
