I love listening to podcasts! They are free and can be full of so much helpful information. I’m subscribed to a bunch them and I found some really great shows that are helpful for bloggers and entrepreneurs. They are all hosted by awesome people that I admire and relate to as a blogger, creative, and entrepreneur just trying to make it. I highly recommend all of these!
1. Being Boss
Being Boss is a fantastic podcast hosted by Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon. Kathleen is from Braid Creative, which is only one of the most awesome resources for creative business owners. With each episode, they drop so much wisdom and truth about how to start and run your creative business. This is my absolute favorite podcast, because with each episode it feels like I’m listening to a conversation between 2 of my good friends. I love it!
2. Make It Happen
The Make It Happen podcast is hosted by Jen Carrington, a creative business coach. I love her approach because she really does want to help creative business owners and bloggers succeed. She features interviews with blog and biz ladies that we all know and love, like Regina Anaejionu, Mariah Coz, Lauren Hooker, Melyssa Griffin, and Maya Elious. This is a fantastic podcast with so much helpful info.
3. The Smart Passive Income Podcast
The The Smart Passive Income Podcast, hosted by Pat Flynn, has interviews and tips from Pat and other successful bloggers, marketers, and entrepreneurs. The main focus is earning passive income from online biz, but they also cover social media, webinars, blogging, niche sites, affiliate marketing, and lots more. This is one of the best podcasts for bloggers and online entrepreneurs.
4. #Girlboss Radio
This one is pretty new, and I already love it so much! #Girlboss Radio is hosted by Sophia Amoruso, author of #Girlboss and founder of Nasty Gal. Each episode features a different #girlboss as a special guest (the first one was Charlize Theron — how sweet is that??) who tells us all about her life and career. It’s so inspirational to hear from women like this, since most podcasts of this type feature men. Sophia really has created something awesome with her book and brand.
5. Build Your Tribe
Chalene Johnson is a fitness maven and entrepreneur extraordinaire. She hosts Build Your Tribe, a podcast about internet marketing, social media, and entrepreneurship. She has built her fitness empire and now she’s sharing her knowledge with us. Each episode gives you actionable tips and steps to grow your business and online presence. I’m a big fan of Chalene’s fitness programs (I LOVE Turbo Fire!) and I always thought she was a great motivator, so it’s really awesome to see her hosting a podcast like this. She also hosts The Chalene Show, which is all about fitness and self-development.
6. ProBlogger Podcast
ProBlogger Podcast is hosted by Darren Rowse, a highly-respected expert in the blogging world. As if his blog wasn’t already full of advice, tips, and resources for bloggers, he’s also hitting us with lots more useful info in his podcast. I love that he speaks from experience, as he still blogs for a living, but also brings in guests for different perspectives. Expect detailed, actionable tips and info that you can actually use, not just fluff.
7. Screw the Nine to Five Podcast
The Screw the Nine to Five Podcast is hosted by Josh and Jill Stanton, a husband and wife team determined to help you kick your 9 to 5 job to the curb and live the life you want as an entrepreneur. As someone who wants to do exactly that, I find their in-your-face approach so refreshing, because it really does make me want to get off my butt and do something. Josh and Jill will teach you how to start and grow your side hustle until you can kiss your boring job goodbye.
