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.

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.
