I know, I know – I’m late to the party.
Podcasts (audio blogging) started back in the 80’s, and became über-popular around 2004, thanks to the ipod hitting the market. According to a survey in 2017, 42 million Americans over the age of 12 listen to podcasts on a weekly basis.
I’m finally one of them.
Thanks to a few recommendations by friends, I’m really into True Crime Podcasts lately, but I’ll save those for another day. Today, I’m sharing my top 5 podcasts for entrepreneurial women. Listening to these podcasts will either answer all of your business questions, or give you so much motivation you’ll probably start a company.
If you have any recommendations for me, please let me know! Leave them in the comments below!
The Goal Digger Podcast with Jenna Kutcher
If you don’t already know, Jenna Kutcher is a self-made millionaire. She started freelancing as a wedding photographer without having taken any photography classes, and now she has her hand in many things (and has quit wedding photography). This podcast has so much information (at the time I’m writing this, she has 285 episodes). There are a mix of tips from Jenna herself, and interviews with other successful entrepreneurs. This is a great resource for people just starting out or more advanced in their business.
The WorkParty Podcast with Jaclyn Johnson
Jaclyn Johnson is the woman behind Create & Cultivate. (If you’re not sure what Create & Cultivate is, check out this blog post). In this podcast, she interviews a lot of women-entrepreneurs such as Ashley Graham, Venus Williams, Busy Philipps and Jen Atkin. You can learn how to grow and scale your business, tips on pitching your product, and listen to how Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores took their blogs and turned them into Summer Fridays. This star-studded cast will give you serious girlboss inspo.
Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso
Speaking of Girlboss Inspo, you of course have to include the o.g. Girlboss, Sophia Amoruso. She has been through unique situations which gives her a totally different perspective of business than most people. She started Nasty Gal back in the day, then had a string of lawsuits against her (some of the things that happend at Nasty Gal make me very angry). However, having said that – she does address some of the mistakes she made in the past and how she learned from them, and how you can avoid making similar mistakes in the future. She also interviews a ton of awesome ladies who started a business from the ground up – and women who broke through the ceiling in their corporate jobs, and how they dealt with the boys’ club. I actually prefer the older episodes!
Design Your Dream Life with Natalie Bacon
I am really into manifesting and setting goals with intention. I’ll be honest, it’s very hard to remember to read my affirmations every day, but it’s something I want to get great at. I listened to Natalie Bacon at The She Did It Her Way Summit a few months ago, and I really liked what she had to say. She has a six figure business, which she started not that long ago. Listening to how she visualized who she would be as the owner of a six figure business was fascinating to me. She’s now on a journey to build a seven figure business. So now’s the time to start listening, people! It’s very different hearing somebody talk about what they did to get to where they are, versus what they’re doing to get to where they’re going. Most of these are under 30 minutes, so they’re great for the morning commute!
She Did It Her Way with Amanda Boleyn
Apparently Amanda’s friends joke that if you start talking to Amanda, by the end of the conversation she will convince you to quit your day job, lol. Her podcast is filled with motivational information and actionable steps to quitting your day job and creating a career you love. Episodes range from “How to Increase Your Productivity” to “Do These 3 Things Before You Quit Your Job”. I really like how positive and easy she makes having a dream-career sound.
