I’ve been spending more and more time listening to podcasts for motivation and guidance. Although I’m pretty self motivated when it comes to business and finances, seeing as I’m always looking to grow and improve, sometimes I want to get knowledge and business perspectives from other people. People who’ve already done what I’m trying to do. Because that’s a hell of a lot easier than trying to figure it all on your own.
And I know from experience, it’s hard to find consistent sources of quality information because people are trying so hard to fluff up their content. But every once in a while you find a few gems. The people who are really out there trying to help you grow and not just make a quick buck off of you. I specifically chose these podcasts and recommend them because they consistently put out great content to help you grow your business.
Podcasts are great because while I’m doing a mindless task like cleaning or eating or just relaxing, I could be learning more about business growth, building connections with other people, side hustles and ways to make money online.
And who doesn’t want to know more about making money from the comfort of your own home? Or The beach? Or wherever you want to be.
Amanda Bucci, an entrepenuer, social media influencer, and previous fitness coach runs an amazing podcast about building and running an online business from a fitness perspective. So I’m sure you can see why this is one of my favorite podcasts. She started as a bikini competitor, then became a fitness coach and entrepreneur, and gained major influence on Youtube and Instagram.
Amanda not only talks about her own experiences running an online business but she also interviews a ton of fitness coaches, social media influencers, and business minded people on their successes, failures, and processes. She talks about the importance of investing in yourself and taking action.
There are over 170 episodes for you to listen to to get you inspired and give you direction in TAKING ACTION.
This podcast, hosted by Pete McPherson, is one of my all time favorite podcasts to listen to. I’ve learned so much from this podcast in my first few months as a blogger than I ever could have alone or even by looking at other “blogging strategy” posts on Pinterest.
I love this podcast because almost every episode is an interview with full time bloggers who all got their start in different ways, at different points in the blogging world, under different niches, but all have valuable information to offer. There’s information on building email lists, growing blog traffic, Pinterest strategies, blogging mistakes, creating good content, etc. The list goes on and on. If you’re a blogger like me I couldn’t recommend this podcast highly enough.
Nick Loper, creator of The Side Hustle Show, has one of the most popular podcasts. And it’s pretty obvious why. Most people either want to start a side hustle, have a side hustle or multiple, or are looking to grow their side hustles into full time businesses (including myself). I started listening to this podcast once I decided to make personal training and blogging my side hustles while my full time job was working at the DMV.
This is a podcast specifically for women wanting to leave their 9 – 5 and launch a successful business. Amanda Boleyn does an amazing job giving advice and answering questions on starting a business. Most of her podcasts are short, somewhere between 30 – 40 minutes long and are jam packed with information. And the business owners that she interviews aren’t only online business owners, although there are plenty of those if you’re interested. She has episodes with a yogi and meditation leader, a CEO of a clothing company, a comedian, and many other types of business owners.
She Did it Her Way really inspires you to get out there and work towards your dream of being a female entrepreneur. This is a podcast that I recommend even if you aren’t working a 9 – 5 full time job. Even if you’re working a part time or if you’re a stay at home mom, whatever your occupation is, you’ll get amazing information and advice on starting and running a business.
Hosted by Natalie Eckdahl, MBA, she makes you feel like you’re sitting with a group of friends just talking about business. She reminds me of the saying that you are a average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with. She’s definitely someone I would want to spend a lot of my time with. The BizChix Podcast specifically focuses on female entrepreneurs, especially ones with online businesses.
I marked this as a bonus because it’s a very new podcast. But in spite of that it’s definitely worthy of a mention. I really love Ell Duclos because she’s relatable. She started her blog and business less than two years ago and she’s already running her blog as a full time job. And if you don’t know anything about blogging, the blogging world changes a LOT. Strategies that people used to grow their blogs in the early 2000’s aren’t exactly what bloggers can use to see growth now. Ell is honest and real and gives advice that’s actually detailed to help other bloggers build their business and make a full time income. Her story is inspiring and I want to help put her on the map!
