As entrepreneurs, we’re always looking for new ways to grow our business. It can be both intimidating and thrilling specifically being a female entrepreneur. You can go from feeling on top of the world after a bunch of successful meetings to feeling anxious and overwhelmed when a client campaign falls through the cracks.
Wherever you find yourself on your entrepreneurial journey, surrounding yourself with impactful resources that have positive effects on your business. These resources should help you stay aligned with your vision and keep yourself motivated to make consistent progress. Whether that be a team, mentor, or supporting circle, having resources that help guide you in the right direction is key.
Now, if you’re reading this and are thinking to yourself you don’t have a team or circle to fall back on just yet or haven’t found a successful mentor -- we’ve got a secret to share. Finding these impactful resources can come in many forms and doesn’t always mean having direct physical interaction between you and another person.
So, what’s the secret? The Power of Podcasts.
As a network of entrepreneurs, we’ve come to realize the importance of having a podcast and listening to other podcasts. Not only are they easy to access, but they also give you the opportunity to hear the wisdom of some of those top mentors that you may not come across in-person. Podcasts, in our opinion, remain one of the greatest resources for entrepreneurs, offering insight, guidance, and expertise from other successful female entrepreneurs for free.
There are currently over 1 million podcasts out there for any listener to hear. In a time where the market is so saturated, you might be asking, where do I even start to look for the podcasts I need to be listening to?
Look no further because we put together 10 podcasts that we believe are the most useful to listen to if you’re a female entrepreneur.
