As a blogger and online content creator, it's important to stay up-to-date with the latest for online marketing best practices, BUT also being a busy firefighter wife and mom of 3, there's only so much time in the day. My typical work hours are when my kids are in school, as is the case with many other work-from-home moms I connect with.
No matter what your schedule is like, adding some business podcasts to your day will prove invaluable. Here are 7 that I love, recommend, and listen to daily!
I was first introduced to Pat Flynn during a LIVE event and was immediately drawn to his authenticity and down-to-earth vibe. I have major respect for him as a leader in podcasting, online business best practices, and more. With hundreds of episodes under his belt, you're likely to go on a binge-listening spree because the content is just that good.
James Wedmore is also a pretty down to earth guy with practical business tips, but more importantly, helps you tackle the mindset struggles that EVERY business owner experiences. Yes....some of his interviews are a little "woo-woo", as he likes to say, but they are undoubtedly key to helping you understand and overcome roadblocks to your definition of success.
Amy and I are fellow firefighter wives and I love the perspective she brings to the online marketing world. She's open and honest about what she is working on, and shares with heart to help others in their businesses. If you're looking for help with webinars, list building, etc., she's your gal!
Chalene was one of the first people I began learning about online marketing from and boy did she open my eyes! I was so focused on all my fun and creativity that I literally knew nothing about running a business. Lol It took awhile for my head to stop hurting from all of the knowledge bombs I learned from her, and love listening to her Build Your Tribe podcast to this day! Again....she is down to earth (sensing a theme here?) and cracks some pretty funny jokes along the way. ;-)
As a business owner, all this "free traffic" from social media, quality SEO, etc. is really nice, but what do you do when you're ready to pay (because you have people you want to serve with your services, products, content, etc.)? Rick's content is centered on the ins and outs of paid traffic without it sounding all super complicated and scary. Talk about a win-win!
For years, I have honestly avoided working with other brands as an influencer up until this year. It was really a heart-to-heart I had that if the fit was right, why wouldn't I want to partner with great brands and share with my lovely readers here?! I'm super picky about this (to be honest) and Julie Soloman is the go-to gal for navigating the unseen (and often unknown aspects) of Influencer Marketing. If you're looking for brand and marketing strategies as an influencer, her podcast if full of insights to get you off on the right foot.
Fun fact: When contemplating my degree for college, neurology was on the list of options (alongside accounting and architecture!). Jim Kwik dives into all things "brain" and how to boost your brain power in practical ways to be more effective and happy in your life and business. I highly recommend this most recent episode where he discusses moving from Burnout to Balance.
What are some of YOUR favorite podcasts to listen to? Either for business or some other topic?
