Are you willing to be patient enough and consistent enough to do the work that lights your soul on fire? If you know it’s time to pursue your dreams even when you see no clear path on how to achieve them, then episode 146 of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.

In today’s conversation, I get cozy with my friend John Lee Dumas.

John Lee Dumas is the host of Entrepreneurs on Fire, an award winning podcast where he interviews inspiring Entrepreneurs who are truly ON FIRE. With over 2000 episodes, 1 million + listens a month, and seven-figures of annual revenue, JLD is just getting started.

Every single time I follow my gut, I follow my intuition, and I follow my heart, things just work out for the best, because it’s telling me something.
