It can be hard for entrepreneurs to take care of business, and still keep up with the business and start-up world. We try, but a day only has 24 hours. And there are emails, and meetings and lots of work to do to keep our business flourishing. For us, one of the greatest tools is the podcast, which lets us listen and learn, while multitasking.
Here is our current list of the best of the best podcasts!
- The Tim Ferriss Show
- She Did It Her Way
- Ask Gary Vee Show
Known for his best seller The 4-Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss now hosts the #1 business podcast on iTunes. He started this podcast as a means to improve his interviewing skills but stuck to it making it one of the best entrepreneur podcasts of the moment.
Started as a series which follows a startup from the launch to setting it up, with season 1 following Alex Blomberg and his own Gimlet Media, followed by season 2 when Lisa Chow joined and told the story of another start-up – Dating Ring, “founded by two women in their 20s, outsiders in the male-dominated world of Silicon Valley.”
Season 3 changed its structure and instead of telling the story of one business, now it presents different companies with just one thing in common; their founders are stuck and need a helpful boost.
A16Z talks about trends in business and technology, and how technology shapes the future of business. It is produced by a venture capital firm in Silicon Valley – Andreessen Horowitz, also known as A16Z. It posts multiple podcasts over the week and has lots of entrepreneurs who have been invited to talk about their experience in the start-up world.
Zen Founder is an interesting mix of entrepreneurship and psychology, since the co-hosts are a serial entrepreneur, Rob Walling and his wife a psychologist, who specializes in trauma work, Sherry Walling. This podcast has unusual depth because Rob and Sherry give advice about incorporating the entrepreneur mind set into family life.
This is a different podcast, because it only interviews successful female entrepreneurs, who launched a variety of businesses, not only tech start-ups. And all the women did their own way, not necessarily trying to do it a “guy way.”
Gary Vaynerchuk is called a force of nature. In his podcast he answers to questions from marketing to social media, and of course, entrepreneurship. A point for Gary is that he answers to questions tweeted by his followers.
So here are some choices. Listen and learn!
