If you get into a conversation about starting your own podcast, it won’t take long before JLD gets mentioned. John Lee Dumas, otherwise known by his cool nickname, is one of the most successful podcasters on the planet.

He regularly brings in six figures from his podcast…every month!

And he took some time to share his secrets. We talked about growing your podcast to a seven figure revenue generator. He talks about pitching to sponsors and sprinkling call-to-actions throughout his episodes. 

We also talk about productivity, which is one of John’s strong suits. To publish 1 episode every day and grow your business at the same time requires a legendary amount of productivity, and JLD unloaded with tidbits that anyone can use.

For instance, on the day I interviewed him, I was podcast #16 of 20 who would interview him that day. This is based on his batching concept where he chooses 1 day to cluster up all 20 podcast interviews he does each month. He also uses this approach to record 30 episodes (1 month’s worth of content) by choosing two days to conduct all of the interviews. Basically, John has a bias towards action.

“You need to have a bias towards action… things that scare you.” —John Lee Dumas

How does a deaf child make it in the NBA and go on to be a KeyNote motivational speaker with a TEDx under his belt? For this episode, I had the privilege of interviewing Lance Allred, the first deaf NBA player, KeyNote motivational speaker, and bestselling author. 

Hearing Lance’s story will make you question the gravity of any obstacle set in front of you. Lance was told at an early age that being deaf was a punishment from God for something he or one of his ancestors did in a past life. People always reminded him of his limitations, but he powered through. 

He didn’t let his disability block him from doing things that people with perfect hearing can do. For instance, we conducted our podcast interview as a video call and then converted it to the MP3 file because Lance can read lips. 

This is one of the most inspirational interviews you’ll ever hear. 

“People inflict pain, because they are already in pain…Pain is just a projection” —Lance Allred



—The benefits of failure

—How to crush any obstacle in your way

—How to get rid of the bad baggage in your life

—How to pursue your dreams even if it feels risky

One thing I love about hosting my podcast is when I get to interview people who helped me for so much of my journey. Kim Garst is one of those people. She’s a live video pro who taught me much of what I know about social media. I read her blog posts, engaged with her tweets, and now have a big audience of my own. 

For this episode, Kim shares her insights on live video. Kim got attracted to live video because you can connect directly and immediately with your audience. Kim was (believe it or not) camera shy in the beginning, so she talks about how she overcame this initial shyness that many people have.

We’ll also explore how to prepare for each live video so you deliver value without stumbling on your words or getting lost in the vortex of real-time engagement. Kim engages with people who interact with her videos in real-time, and she explains how to do that while staying on topic. 

Finally, there is an ultra time hack Kim uses to save time creating content elsewhere. She will take her live videos and repurpose them into blog posts. She will get the videos transcribed so she doesn’t have to write a single word for her blog posts. This saves countless hours of time and allows her to pursue more projects. 

Kim is also offering five Breakthrough Success listeners a free ticket to her Social Boom! event in Orlando, Florida. The event takes place from May 16th to the 17th and features speakers such as Mike Michalowicz, Jeff Adams, Nicole Waters, and many more. 

If you want a free ticket to the event (and only ask if you’ll use it), send an email to and I’ll let Kim know you want a free ticket.

Anthony Iannarino is the author of The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need. His book combines mindset and methods into the sales guide that will boost your sales. 

Anthony started as a musician in LA and is now an expert on generating sales. Anthony hosts a daily show on his YouTube channel where he shares some nuggets of wisdom to his audience.

We start our discussion by exploring the successful salesperson’s mindset. How does a successful salesperson view adversity? How should you utilize your time? How do you approach a problem?

We then dive deeper into the methods for generating sales. Anthony reveals what he thinks about emails, social media, and cold calling. Yes, you read that last one right…cold calling. While many of us have written cold calling off as Jurassic Marketing (I just made that term up), Anthony explains how cold calling is still a critical part of marketing.

It’s like how people say email marketing is dead even though email generates far more ROI than all of the other social networks. Cold calling isn’t dead either, and Anthony makes his case in this episode.

In this episode, I interview Mary Fernandez to discuss what makes a brilliant content marketing strategy, and more importantly, how you actually implement the strategy. Mary is a blogger, visibility strategist, the content marketing manager of Opt-In Monster, and host of the Persuasion Nation Series Podcast.

Her blogging journey began as a teacher who wrote blog posts about ballet. The idea behind these blog posts was that her ballet students could visit her blog to learn beyond the formal lessons. This beginning gradually evolved into a love for content marketing. 

Mary explains that guest blogging was a huge boost to her email list, and that her guest blogging efforts garnered many more subscribers over a much smaller period than before. In this episode, she talks about how she got these opportunities and how you can get more guest blogging opportunities.

The most important element of a content marketing strategy is to write for the needs and wants of your audience. To fulfill this requirement of content marketing, you must do some prior research to discover what your audience wants.

70% of people who leave your site will never come back again. This is why Mary uses an Exit-Intent Pop-Up to get more subscribers.

If you want a content marketing strategy that grows your audience and generates more revenue, this podcast episode is a must-listen.
