2. Don’t Keep Your Day Job

Don't Keep Your Day Job Podcast

This podcast has been around for a while and for good reason. It is perfect for bringing out your inner entrepreneur. The host uses a “how to” style in each interview with successful business people in a wide variety of trades. I love this approach because it helps you get the most out of stories even if they are out of your intended realm of work.

With episodes like How to Love Criticism and Faking Your Emotions at Work, you will learn about how you are influencing others around you and vice versa. The tips and mindsets can be especially helpful for the entrepreneurs who are still building their businesses but don’t want to stick to a ‘typical’ approach. Worklife is full of innovation.

This podcast doesn’t necessarily focus on business ownership like the others on this list, but I am still including it because it is oh so helpful with all things financial. Which is important no matter which type of enterprise you are pursuing. The host is a successful financial analyst who uses her experience and knowledge to break down the ins and outs of successful money management. She shows how to get your money to work for you.

6. 2 Minute Talk Tips with Bill Monroe

2 Minute Talk Tips Podcast

This show is all about speaking with confidence and ease-something many people struggle with. There is something about voicing your opinion or plans in front of others that can be overwhelming and nerve wracking. Listening to these advice-filled episodes will fight all that. Each on starts out with a 2 minute tip (hence the name). The host goes on to discuss the reasons and background behind the starting advice. No matter what type of business you are pursuing, you will need to voice your goals to others at some point. This show will help you through it.
