Podcasts have become a very useful tool for the busy entrepreneur. No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, it is crucial to keep learning. And podcasts are best for constant learning – they are easy to digest and can kick-start your day immediately. Do you want to make your morning more productive or attend a never-ending university? Then give these a listen. Here are my top 9 – all of which you need to subscribe to.
If you haven’t jumped on the podcast wagon yet, you’re missing out on a lot of things. You can find a myriad of topics covered there. I’m a big fan to use my time wisely, so when I have a long commute, cook dinner or even when I’m in the shower – I listen to the podcast.
I believe starting your day with a morning ritual can charge you for the full day. But figuring out a morning routine takes time. Finding morning inspiration takes even longer. So I recommend you to start listening to the podcast to level up your motivation.
1. The 10x Talk
My number one favorite podcast is The 10X Talk. And these words of a co-creator Sullivan explains best what this podcast is about:
“What would it take to make your business 10x larger in the future than it is today? When you learn to put each of your decisions (even your daily decisions and actions) through this filter, your business becomes much stronger.”
A series of discussions on the topics of developing and expanding. The podcast is curated by Dan Sullivan and Joe Polish. Dan is founder and president of The Strategic Coach. Dan has over 35 years’ experience as a highly regarded speaker, consultant, strategic planner, and coach to entrepreneurial individuals and groups. Another creator Joe Polish is one of the best marketer alive today. He is known for his ability to connect with almost anyone on the planet and has a Genius Network for entrepreneurs.
Rich Roll is a vegan ultra-athlete. On his podcast, he discusses all things wellness to inspire you to unlock YOUR BEST SELF. And every podcast he creates dives deep into the subjects he picks.
Topics include general fitness & endurance, multisport training, vegan / plant-based nutrition / cooking, meditation, yoga, sustainable lifestyle and beyond. He wants to help empower YOU to become your best, most authentic self. So both my top 2 favorite podcasts provoke you to discover your uniqueness.
