Balancing life as an entrepreneur with the struggles of daily life can be a challenge, and sometimes keeping that motivation and creativity can be tough. Getting inspired by other entrepreneurs is one of my favourite ways to keep growing my business.
With limited time to spare, listening to podcasts is a great way to soak up some inspiration and hear what other entrepreneurs are facing. Not only is it nice to know I’m not alone on my business journey, but I’m always leaving with fresh ideas! Here are my top 5 business podcasts to boost your motivation.
- How I Built This with Guy Raz
How I Built This features entrepreneurs from every industry and showcases the stories behind some of the most well-known companies. There are so many things I love about this podcast, but the real joy is the way Guy Raz interviews his guests. It’s almost like he’s telling their story – it’s definitely more than just a traditional interview. And Guy does a phenomenal job of showcasing the struggles that entrepreneurs face while taking something from an idea to a multi-million – sometimes even multi-billion – dollar company. If you’re looking to hear about how other people took massive risks or overcame big mistakes, this is the podcast you’ve been looking for.
- Tony Robbins Podcast
This podcast is probably the most well-rounded source of the five listed here. Tony Robbins covers a wide range of topics including business, health and finances. He’s fully honed in on how to achieve the highest level of success possible, and that makes him my go-to when I’m looking for some deep motivation. Every episode reminds me to keep going and to think bigger.
- The Ed Mylett Show
Ed Mylett is a super interesting guy. He’s faced his own hardships, growing up the only son to an alcoholic father. His backstory is what gives him a unique approach to business and really brings a fresh perspective on the value of life and business. He’s constantly encouraging listeners to prioritize moves that will have the biggest impact on your life, which makes this podcast my go-to listen when I’m facing big decisions.
- Marie Forleo Podcast
If you know anything about Marie Forleo, you know her mantra is “Everything is Figureoutable”. After reading her book, I’ve applied that mantra to every roadblock I’ve faced in my business. That mindset of having a solution for every problem has helped me overcome some big obstacles and bring my business to where it is today. Her podcast is a great reminder of how to continually persevere and to creatively face any problem in business and in life.
- WSJ Secrets of Wealthy Women
My final favourite podcasts is everything I love all baked into one – business, women and money. There’s so much to learn, so many perspectives on entrepreneurship and achieving success. This is a great pick-me-up podcast, the perfect source of motivation and encouragement when things feel hard or overwhelming.
These five podcasts never fail to boost my motivation and keep me focused on my end goal. So whether you’re supporting your fellow boss babes or getting inspired with Guy Raz, I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I have!
