3 Great Podcasts for Small-Business Owners & Entrepreneurs
Podcasts are an often-overlooked resource for the small-business owner. Most small-business owners can name loads of books and websites that have served as valuable inspiration and education, but podcasts have only recently become such a vast, deep resource. And if you don’t think you have time for regular podcast listening, think again—you can easily listen to podcasts while you’re on the go or doing other things. So why not learn something and be inspired instead of watching The Big Bang Theory or Dancing with the Stars while you cook dinner?
Here are three great podcasts that are more than worth your time. They’re entertaining, informative, and inspiring, regularly delivering knowledge and advice that can help any small-business owner or entrepreneur take their ventures to the next level.
Entrepreneur On Fire with John Lee Dumas
Recognizing that we can often learn more from failure than success, Entrepreneur On Fire founder and host John Lee Dumas begins every interview by asking his guest about their biggest failure and delving into the lessons learned there. Since he’s talking to successful entrepreneurs as diverse as Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Barbara Corcoran, the stories are often enlightening and inspiring, no matter where you’re at in your entrepreneurial journey. It’s simply one of the best podcasts out there for entrepreneurs seeking a little inspiration.
Breakthrough Business Strategy Radio with Michele Price
Houston’s own Michele Price hosts the Breakthrough Business Strategy Radio podcast, which features terrific in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs and business leaders covering a wide range of topics. What you can always expect, though, is smart, often funny conversation with actionable tips and solid advice that you can apply to your own business.
One-on-One with Brent Leary
For the One-on-One interview series, Brent Leary talks to key players in successful businesses of various sizes—small, big, and everything in between. Whether he’s talking to Rohan Gilkes about buying a small upstart called Wet Shave Club for $4K and turning it into a $350K business or discussing the future of ecommerce with the head of biz development at Shopify, there are always big ideas and nuggets of wisdom to take away and apply to your own entrepreneurial endeavors.
