For the past couple of years, I’ve been hooked on podcasts. I tend to listen to podcasts at night as I fall asleep and/or use them to get through long days at work to speed up the day.
I wish I could say that I’m subscribed to only a few podcasts in a certain niche, but I’m not. Currently, I’m subscribed to well over 20 different podcasts that mostly includes pop culture and comedy stations. I usually listen to these as I fall asleep at night. Who doesn’t want to fall asleep with a smile on their face?
Currently, one of my favorite types of podcasts to listen to while at work are podcasts are aimed toward creatives and entrepreneurs. They are usually very motivating and share valuable information that I can implement in my work, creative endeavors, and life.
So, I decided to share some of my favorite podcasts for creative entrepreneurs with you. If you work/live or aspire to possess a creative lifestyle or start your own business, then you will definitely appreciate some of these podcasts. Check them out!
Mattieologie – Mattie James is the beautiful branding bad-ass behind the Mattieologie podcast and Mattieologie blog. In her daily podcast, she shares tips and suggestions on everything from blogging, social media, and video content creation in less than 10 minutes. No, seriously, some of podcasts are less than 5m minutes, but are so thorough and filled with awesomeness. I tend to listen her podcasts from throughout the week on Friday, while getting ready for work. LISTEN HERE!
Ask Pat – Ask Pat is a podcast hosted by Pat Flynn, who is known for helping other create and curate profitable online businesses through his blog, Smart Passive Income. Like Mattieologie, the format of this podcast is daily short episodes where Pat answers a question from one of his supporters including questions about blogging schedules, what equipment to use for podcasts, and email marketing. I binge listen to this podcast on Sundays, on my way from church. It helps me slowly get back into the upcoming work week. LISTEN HERE!
Lewis Howes – Lewis Howes is a former professional athlete turned lifestyle entrepreneur that shares great life and business tips from personal experiences and also interviews with other creatives and entrepreneurs. Each episode is informative and inspiring. LISTEN HERE!
#GIRLBOSSES Radio – So, pretty much anything that has Sophia Amoruso name attached to it automatically gets my vote, including her #GirlBoss podcast, which is named after her best-selling book that was released earlier this year. In her new podcast, the founder of Nasty Gal, interviews other inspiring #girlbosses about business, life, and everything in between. Unfortunately, she’s only released a few episodes, but they are so worth listening to and waiting patiently for the next one. LISTEN HERE!
Creative Start Podcast – I recently found this podcast, but I really enjoyed the interviews with creative entrepreneurs who discuss how they got started with their business/careers. So inspirational and reassuring! New episodes are supposed to start soon. However, in the meantime, you will enjoy their past episodes. LISTEN HERE!
She Did It Her Way – She Did Her Way podcast is the reason I’ve hardly listened to the radio on my way to work the past couple of weeks, because this podcast is specifically geared toward the top female entrepreneurs who climbed the ladder of their success their way with interviews from women who’ve succeeded in various businesses.
