Finance Tips From The Host Of Entrepreneurs On Fire

Melissa Houston / John Lee Dumas

“Back in 2012, I was trying to figure out: can I do this online internet thing?... Frankly, I thought you had to be slimy and scammy to make money online.”

—  John Lee Dumas

To say that John Lee Dumas cracked the code when it comes to podcasting would be an understatement. His award-winning podcast and brand Entrepreneurs on Fire earns him a 7-figure income!

With numbers like that, it’s all the more crucial to stay on top of your finances.

Unfortunately, John says, this is something too few entrepreneurs put enough effort into.

“Entrepreneurs work SO hard. They’re such hard workers. And they’re working hard in the right areas, but they’re coming up short,” he says. “When you just don’t do the financial side of your business correctly, it’s almost like all of your work is… it’s not less meaningful, by any stretch, but it’s less profitable.”

The unhappy reality is that you can very easily earn high annual revenue... and still have an unprofitable business.

Many entrepreneurs shortchange themselves by thousands — or even tens of thousands — of dollars per year, through neglecting to recognize and fix the financial leaks draining their profitability.

Chapter 17 of John’s new book, The Common Path to Uncommon Success: A Roadmap to Financial Freedom and Fulfillment, spells out his powerful advice for other entrepreneurs: 

Keep the money you make.

You have to love that!
