John Lee Dumas transitioned from small-town kid to a multimillionaire entrepreneur.
In today’s podcast, we talk about that journey.
Here’s his backstory:
John grew up in a small town in southern Maine.
His father and both grandfathers served in the military, so he decided to follow in their footsteps. He attended Providence College in Rhode Island, paid for with an Army ROTC scholarship — and in this podcast interview, John confesses that he didn’t think he’d experience real challenges in the Army.
“I never thought it was going to be a serious time in the military,” he says in today’s episode. “I just thought it’d be a good experience … I’d play with some big guns, and then, you know, I’d get out and get on to the rest of my life.”
But on September 11th of his senior year of college, everything changed.
