Being an entrepreneur tends to be a busy job. You’re often so busy, that you might not have the time and energy to sit down and try to learn more about how you can improve your entrepreneurship. One of the best resources that entrepreneurs can take advantage of is podcasts. Podcasts are essentially radio shows you can download onto your phone or listen to on your computer, and they’re a great form of passive entertainment. Many of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs have taken it upon themselves to create podcasts where they share their own tips and advice on how to be a better entrepreneur, and they can be a great way to learn more as you embark on your entrepreneurship journey. Here are a few of the best podcasts for entrepreneurs to check out this year.
Startup Stories – Mixergy
Andrew Warner has a compelling story about how he started his education and podcast business, and he even features a few big-name guests on the show, though most of his interviews are from smaller companies. I like this because these stories are fresh and don’t get bounced around the internet like a lot of other podcasts. The show’s online community is also great because it allows entrepreneurs to connect with like-minded individuals and learn from the best in the business. Startup Stories features a variety of topics that are relevant to every entrepreneur.
This Week in Startups
Jason Calacanis’ web series, which is focused on the tech industry, features a variety of experts from different backgrounds. The show is a great way to keep up with the latest startup news and find inspiration from other entrepreneurs. It also provides actionable advice on how to keep your company running, all while trying to be as funny as possible so you can feel like you’re having fun while you learn and keep up with the news.
Smart Passive Income
One of the longest-running podcasts is Pat Flynn’s “Smart Passive Income,” which is for all of those who love to talk about the business and are hoping to become successful entrepreneurs. He interviews various prominent individuals such as YouTube stars, marketing pros, and entrepreneurs to help them hone in on their strategies and share their inspirational stories with listeners. You can even hear interviews with popular entrepreneurs such as Tim Ferris!
The Harvard Business Review’s weekly podcast, which is hosted by Alison Beard and Curt Nickish, features some of the most prominent experts in the business world. They talk about topics such as how to run a successful business, burnout, and networking. This 30-minute program is also a great way to connect with like-minded individuals.
