Entrepreneurs, get ready to ignite! During this episode I was able to interview Mr. John Lee Dumas! The man behind “Entrepreneur on Fire”! John’s podcast is a top ranked, 7-day a week business podcast, focused on inspiring entrepreneurs.
Some of John’s guests includes, Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferriss, Chris Brogan and over 500 inspiring Entrepreneurs.
Here are some of the questions/take aways I got from John during this episode.
Why are so many entrepreneurs afraid of selling?
One of the major reasons why entrepreneurs dislike selling is the fact that they are fearful of rejections. To overcome that you must just launch and DO SOMETHING! Another way to overcome this fear of rejection is to get a mentor or be part of a mastermind group.
What does an entrepreneur do when your business grows greater than your ability to do it alone?
John recommends that anyone in this situation reads Chris Decker’s recently released book Virtual Freedom. You can increase the value of your time and grow your business even faster by hiring others who can take care of minimal tasks for you.
How do you know at what point to price your product?
There is no set answer to the ideal pricing of your product. John recommends that individuals focus on value and base the price on that, not merely on the hours spent offering that product or service.
John major take away is to JUST START!
