9 Podcasts For The Small Business Owner

Updated: Feb 22, 2021

I've been meaning to write this post for quite some time, before I started my business I only occasionally binged on podcasts, mainly comedy ones. But since starting my business they have become a really important part of my inspiration and down-time. Since I'm not a maker I mainly listen when I walk the dog or I'm driving, it makes me feel like I'm working and being productive.

Small and Mighty Conversations

This is the one I listen to every single week on the day it's released. I love how Sam interviews small business owners and shines a light on both the ones that are just starting out and the ones that have been going for a while. I loved this weeks episode with Becky Avery from Hazel and Blue Candles. I had the pleasure of working with Becky earlier in the year and helped her with her linesheet. You can read more about that here.

Grow with Soul

I am more and more drawn to slow living and I'm definitely 100% behind growing sustainably and finding a way that suits you. I was lucky enough to be a guest on Kayte Ferris's podcast in April and you can listen to the episode here or read more about it here.

She Can She Did

I really admire Fiona Grayson, I've been to one of her mid-week mingles and I love how she shines a spotlight on female business founders in their 20's and 30's.

The Product Boss Podcast

This is the only American podcast I regularly listen to, it is very American but the advice that Jacqueline and Minna give is really transferable and I really recommend it.

The Kindness Econom‪y‬

I love Mary Portas and I really enjoy this podcast, she has some great guests on and she is just so enjoyable to listen to.

Starting the Conversation

This podcast is changing a bit and has a new format and I haven't had a chance to have a listen yet but I'm really looking forward to it. I love how this is for service based businesses so it might not be as relevant to you but there's a lot of life advice so I think you might still enjoy it just as much as I do.

Elevate Your Curiosity

Joanne is one of my fellow Co's in the Small and Mighty Co, Sam Burgess network of experts that contribute to her small business hub of business advice each month. I really enjoy Joanne's episodes on trends and product development.

Make a Plan > Make it Happe‪n‬

Josephine Brooks gives so much great advice for product-based business owners and I love her mentoring episodes. She talks a lot about managing your time, productivity, and planning, something I always need help with.

Let's Talk Shop

Well, I could not write this blog post without telling you about my podcast that will be launching on the 15th of July, I'm so excited and also so scared. This podcast is for the product-based entrepreneur and I will be chatting to buyers, shop owners, brand owners, and other industry professionals. I'm so excited. Please subscribe now so you don't miss out on the launch.

Now, tell me what's your recommendations? and if you listen to any of these, let me know what you think and if you enjoyed them and subscribe to my newsletter to find out more about new posts and articles and to receive 15% off my ebook on how to wholesale.

If you're thinking of starting your own podcast, I use Podbean to host mine and it's been great (this is an affiliate link). After two seasons they have always been super responsive with answering questions and helping so I would happily recommend them.
