I'm late to the podcast game, really late. I know they've been around for a while but I only recently started listening to them and I have to say, I've really dove in. I got hooked right away and found a great way to stay productive during my "free time" (read: when I'm doing housework and working out). There are podcasts on just about every topic but, being the personal development junkie that I am, I've found some inspiration and motivation in some of the podcasts for entrepreneurs. Here are 5 motivational business podcasts you'll want to check out:
This Is Your Life
Michael Hyatt's weekly podcast, This Is Your Life will speak to anyone who is looking to advance their leadership skills and productivity. He is the author of several books including the New York Times best seller, Platform: Get Noticed In a Busy World and is the CEO of Michael Hyatt and Company, which provides resources and training on leadership and development. His background in publishing (he was the CEO at Thomas Nelson) provides great insight into the industry and he often shares tips on how brands can establish themselves as a credible resource in their own industries. I specifically enjoyed his podcast on 10 productivity hacks to supercharge your day.
Kelsey Humphreys is the host behind The Pursuit, where she meets with entrepreneurs and "breaks down success for the rest of us." She's interviewed all-stars like Tony Robbins, James Altucher, Marie Forleo and Barbara Corcoran, just to name a few. I like how Kelsey isn't afraid to ask about the struggles and hardships her interviewees have faced in their business. It's refreshing and there's something to be learned with each episode. Check out the interview with Tony Robbins and Joe Berlinger on how to add value, creativity and some other motivational tips.
Young Entrepreneur Lifestyle 2.0
Peter Voogd is a thought leader for millenial entrepreneurs. On his podcast, Young Entrepreneur Lifestyle 2.0, he gives motivational tips on how to take your business and life to the "world class" level. I like his no-fluff, no BS approach to accomplishing goals. His book 6 Months To 6 Figures is a national bestseller (this is currently on my nightstand along with some other motivational books). Peter's content is sure to inspire any entrepreneur those looking to up-level in any area of their life. I like his motivational podcasts recorded to the backdrop of some nice beats, like this one on how you should spend your time. Very uplifting and I often listen to them on my night runs.
I recently heard of Chase Jarvis and listening to his podcasts and YouTube videos recently was an afternoon well-spent. I love his high energy approach to...everything! A lot of his followers come around for his expertise on photography but he contributes some great content on motivation too. Check out his interviews with Tim Ferris, Arianna Huffington, Marie Forleo and Ramit Sethi. Your creative juices will explode and you can thank me later.
John Lee Dumas' EOFire is a content-rich podcast full of resources from anything on productivity, goal-setting, startups and anything else an entrepreneur would want to tackle. You will find inspiration from the diverse group of movers and shakers he's interviewed and are sure to get motivation from him. He has a way of breaking down the most overwhelming tasks and encouraging listeners to be resourceful and most of all, passionate in what they do. Check out the recent podcast for tips on discipline, focus and other motivational goodies.
