This week we are going to fill you in on our favorite podcasts and why we think you should follow these as a small business and creative!
We all are in business for money — That is, to make a living. Dave Ramsey is the authority on money management and his podcast/radio show is a must listen every week for us. With a plan on getting out of debt, investments, and any money advise you can think of, Dave has us hooked. His book, The Total Money Makeover, has been a New York Times Best Seller for years and continues to influence and inspire individuals and businesses alike to use their money to its greatest potential.
As author of The Four Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss and his podcast have been the #1 ranked businesses show off and on for years. He interviews some of the worlds most successful people and asks about their lives, goals, and how they approach business. He finds what they believe led to their success and shares it with the rest of us. The encouragement of seeing how some of the worlds most successful people started out as no-bodies inspires us to keep grinding day in and day out.
On EOFire, John Lee Dumas interviews today’s most successful Entrepreneurs 7-days a week. Pat Flynn, Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss and Gary Vaynerchuk are 4 of the over 1300 interviews to date. Get inspired, as we do, with the success of the entrepreneurs we look up to.
One of the best ways to grow your website as a business as well as on Google’s index is to blog. Darren Rowse talks about his strategy of building a successful blog and interviews others who have done the same. If you don’t have a blog, let us know, we would love to help get you started!
5. Hidden Brain
“A conversation about life’s unseen patterns” is the slogan they’ve chosen. Although this doesn’t necessarily have to do with starting or running a business, it does inspire creativity as we learn about some of the patterns humans exhibit and why we operate the way we do.
The TED Radio Hour is a journey through fascinating ideas: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to think and create. It features TED talks from around the globe and breaks them down with science that’s easily explained. “Technology, Entertainment, Design” that’s what TED stands for… I bet you didn’t know that!
7. Planet Money
“The Economy Explained” is how they liked to describe their program… but Planet Money is much more than that. It inspires ideas on how to use money and why several schemes and tactics used in the past have succeeded or failed.
SPECIFICALLY FOR WEB DESIGNERS, DEVELOPERS, AND CREATIVES
8. Shop Talk
ShopTalk is a podcast about front end web design, development, and UX. With interviews regarding professionals in these categories, this podcast is on the top of our list… but unless you’re in one of those fields, you may not find this as helpful.
Ditto to #8!
10. Divi Nation
This podcast is specific to the theme/builder we use for all of the sites we build that are not custom. We learn more about this incredible technology each week as they interview pros and dive deeper and deeper into the endlessly useful theme that is Divi.
