So for those of you in pursuit of creating your own business and possibly combining it with your ambitions to travel, be outdoors, and have location independence like we are, I wanted to share 8 of my favorite podcasts that I listen to in my spare time to help inspire me to keep fighting the good entrepreneurial fight. I have been really trying to focus on my mindset recently, and for me there is a lot of rewiring my brain to not look at this blog as an "experiment", but rather a business that will be successful as long as I keep putting energy and hard work into it. One way I work on my mindset is by listening to podcasts about business and blogging. I have this intense focus to make an online business work for me, to provide me and Michael with new opportunities and freedoms, that I realize how important it is to fully immerse myself in the topic. I turn them on when I drive. I will listen to them while I work out. Sometimes I will take a lunch break in my car and eat and listen to them. I want to fill my spare moments with inspiration and learning. What makes a successful online business? What are the experts saying to focus on? How can I grow? 

So if you are looking for some inspiration for your own blog or business whether it be specific advice on a topic or just overall inspiration, below are my top 8 favorite podcasts on being an entrepreneur and having a curiosity mindset.

What is it about? 

Heres is what their bio says, "The Food Blogger Pro Podcast helps both aspiring bloggers and seasoned bloggers alike in creating a beautiful functional, and profitable blog".

Why do I like it?  

You might be thinking, "Umm.. WTF? You are not a food blog!", but I love these guys. Its weird, and you probably all have your first blog that inspired you to start your own blog too, well Pinch of Yum, owners of the Food Blogger Pro and Food Blogger Pro Podcast, were that first blog for me. Way back in college I started a food blog of my own (for fun at the time) called "The Best of Thymes" (ha!) when I decided I wanted to learn how to actually cook good food. I kept it up for about 2-3 years, but then lost interest in blogging about food, primarily because the outdoors, hiking, and climbing came into my life like a flash flood and I was totally consumed with it. I still to this day look at Pinch of Yum as inspiration. Their Income and Traffic reports inspired me to do my own Income and Traffic Reports as I started my blogging for business journey. I am also a Food Blogger Pro Member (probably one of their only non-food blog members) because they have such useful information for new bloggers on tech information, and I also really love their podcast. It's probably the one I listen to the most. I think I just find them really relatable compared to some other blogs. I look at them and think, "Hey, this blogging thing is possible. These normal people transformed their lives with it, and now look at them". I don't know. I just really find their podcast episodes super helpful + inspirational + easy to listen to. They are high on my recommendation list. 

*Note- the food blogger pro links above are affiliate links, meaning if you were to sign up for food blogger pro, we would get a small commission for sending the traffic their way. It would help to support our blog's mission to pay off student loans, and please know I only recommend and link to products/services I love and have used myself. Feel free not to use it! I still think they are an awesome program to check out. The podcast is free. affiliate link is just for their blogging membership.

What is it about?

Heres is what the bio says, "A daily show for everyone who works a regular job and wants to start an income-earning project on the side."

Why do I like it?

Side Hustle School was sort of like the first podcast I listened to that pushed me into thinking about how I could create an online business of my own. Mid-2017 I started thinking how I wanted to create some side hustle income to pay off student loan debts quicker, and ran across this podcast. I consider it to be one of the reasons I am pursuing this blog business in general. Chris Guillebeau puts out short easy to digest podcasts with a story from someone with a side hustle of their own every day, at least in 2017 it was every day. I picked up the podcast probably in June of 2017 and litterally listened to almost every episode of 2017. I have extensive notes from the podcast and it helped me decide where I wanted to go with my side hustle.

What is it about?

Heres is what the bio says, "Tim Ferriss is a self-experimenter and bestselling author, best known for The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been translated into 40+ languages. Newsweek calls him 'the world’s best human guinea pig,' and The New York Times calls him 'a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk.' In this show, he deconstructs world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, chess, pro sports, etc.), digging deep to find the tools, tactics, and tricks that listeners can use."

Why do I like it?

While not every episode is about being about an "entrepreneur" so to speak, the Tim Ferriss Show is one of my favorites to listen to to get inspiration and learn new things. It was one of the very first podcasts I had ever listened to and to this day it is one of my favorites. I feel a lot like Tim Ferriss sometimes, very curious, wanting to try a lot of things. I own almost every one of his books. I definitely drink the Tim Ferriss cool-aid so to speak. He's one of my "entrepreneurial heroes" and I love all the new people and concepts I learn about through this podcast.

What is it about?

Here is what the bio says, "How I Built This is a podcast about innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity and insight."

Why do I like it?

This podcast from NPR is super interesting! I love hearing the stories by some of the biggest companies out there and how they all got started. It makes you realize how much these people hustled and how many of them started at square one too, with no following or prospects, but they just kept at it and now they are making millions and millions of dollars. Guy Raz does an incredible job making these stories very interesting.

What is it about?

Here is what the bio says, "Pat Flynn from the Smart Passive Income Blog discusses online business, blogging, marketing, entrepreneurship, and lifestyle. No fluff, no chit chat, just quality, actionable content you can use to improve your online business, blog and lifestyle.

Why do I like it?

When I first came across Pat Flynn's Smart Passive Income website I remember being like, "Whatttttt where has this been all of my life?" and I find so many of his podcasts very helpful, particularly for learning about different topics in the blogging/online world that I am learning about. He has a lot of great tips and strategies on his podcast and I definitely recommend going through the list of podcasts on his sites to find topics that interest you.

What is it about?

Here is what the bio says, "Amy Porterfield is a marketing strategist helping entrepreneurs build their business online.

Why do I like it?

I stumbled on Amy Porterfield's podcast because she talked on another podcast that I was listening too (can't remember who's now), but now I am pretty hooked. Although she has a very different style than say, Food Blogger Pro, I still find a lot of what she teaches very valuable. I am part of her email list and she has convinced me to sign up for several of her classes... I guess she is good at what she does, which is what I find fascinating. Trying to learn from the best here.

I like to listen to pro-blogger or browse his archives when I am looking at something even more specific advice on something. He gives some great tips about building traffic, creating content, etc. Definitely worth checking week to week to see if he posts anything that interests you.

What is it about?

Here is what the bio says, "In 2016, I hit my first million-dollar year in my business. And yet, I was totally miserable. At the time, I was focused on numbers and status, rather than what would actually bring me real happiness and create an impact in the world. That all changed. This podcast offers a different perspective on what it means to be a successful entrepreneur and human, and explains how to cultivate true meaning and fulfillment in your life.

Why do I like it?

I just recently started to listen to Melyssa Griffin's Podcast Pursuit with Purpose, but so far I really like her genuine style and I like that the focus is more about making this business a little bit more human and personal. So far I really like. She just kicked off this podcast in June of 2017 so it is still fairly new.

Recommended episodes to start with:

1.   #22: How to easily stick to your habits and routines by understanding and utilizing your personality type with Gretchen Rubin

2.   #24: How to stop judging yourself and others with Gabrielle Bernstein 

3.   #13: How to use meditation to feel like a less stressed, happier version of yourself with Emily Fletcher


One Final Tip

If you are looking for a great way to organize your podcasts, my favorite podcast app is Overcast. I used the IPhone Podcast App for the longest time, but didn't really like how I couldn't easily organize it. Then they made some updates to it and it sucked even more. So I moved all my podcasts over to Overcast and I love it! You can even create "categories" to move episodes into. I have a category called "Listen To Soon" for any episode that I download that I want to listen to sooner rather than later. 

Hope you found a new podcast to love from this list. Do you have any favorites that I missed? Let me know in the comments below! 

Cheers,

Allison
