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. So here's my list of 9 podcasts for the small business owner.
This is the one I listened to every single week on the day it was released. I loved how Sam interviewed small business owners and shone a light on both the ones that are just starting out and the ones that have been going for a while. I loved the episode with Becky Avery from Hazel and Blue Candles. I had the pleasure of working with Becky when I first started this business and helped her with her linesheet. You can read more about that here. Though there hasn't been a new episode of Small and Mighty Conversations, there is a back catalogue that contains so much good advice for small businesses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Joanne was one of my fellow Co's in the Small and Mighty Co, Sam Burgess' network of experts that contributed to her small business hub of monthly business advice. I really enjoy Joanne's episodes on trends and product development.
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.
Well, I could not write this blog post without telling you about my podcast that will I launched on the 15th of July, I'm so excited and also so scared.

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.
