THE BEST PODCASTS
For creative entrepreneurs
Written by: Khloe George
The right podcast can get our creative juices flowing. With a 9-5, a working entrepreneur can feel burned out but listening to a podcast can get our mind in the right frame to get our day started and work on the projects we need to work on. In order to keep us motivated and focused on our goals, I always follow the rule to schedule inspiration every single day. I've already delved into my personal favorite podcasts but these picks below are ones I found would be conducive to the creative entrepreneur. There might be a repeat here and there but here are the best podcasts to listen to.
“Marie and her guests, share actionable strategies for greater happiness, success, motivation, creativity, productivity, love, health, contribution and fulfillment – from business, marketing and career advice, to tackling failure, disappointment and fear, to philanthropy and doing our part to make the world a more loving, just and equitable place.” This is basically MarieTv’s podcast version of her YouTube show where she interviews creatives but also answer a lot of questions we entrepreneurs have. It is crunched down to about 5 minutes but packs a big punch on knowledge.
Jenna Kutcher caters to the girl bosses in all of us but also the actual entrepreneur. She hosts a live-workshop style business podcast for creative girl bosses. The reason I love this one is that she gives such insightful information for your business that you can do turn into actionable steps.
This daily show for everyone who works a regular job and wants to start an income-earning project on the side. In each episode, listeners will hear a different story of someone who’s started a side hustle – along with what went well, how that person overcame challenges, and what happened as a result. Hosted by Chris Guillebeau, this show for me is so motivational because it's not often enough that we get to hear a story of a side hustle that had it's challenges and what those challenges were. I think this is important to know because we as a collective society tend to see things through rose colored glasses and we kind of need to see the dark side of things.
"Connecting you with industry thought leaders to help develop the business side of your creative hustle." Each week, Reina + Christina bring you up close with the influencers you dream of meeting at conferences and workshops, but maybe don't have a budget to attend yet. Sprinkled in between these are teaching episodes, and mentoring that walks show listeners through common problems with solutions during their early days of business.
