Podcasts are awesome! 🙂

Podcasts are just the best!

As I’m sure you already know, there’s some good podcasts and ones that just leave you like…

“What did I just listen to?”

Thankfully the information in this post will be focusing on the good ones!

Yes, you’re welcome. 🙂

Podcasts are so great for a number of reasons

You can learn from other people while still doing another activity like driving, exercising, working, etc.

I usually turn on a podcast when I’m running, exercising, or driving.

Learning is so important.

Learners are leaders.

Leaders are learners.

If you’re not constantly learning you’re losing out on achieving your goals.

I’ve identified my favorite podcasts for learning and equipping myself with the information I need to succeed in branding, business, marketing, and entrepreneurship.

Are you ready to grab hold of this information?

Let’s jump right into the list. 🙂

Entrepreneurs on Fire (John Lee Dumas)

John Lee Dumas (JLD) from Entrepreneurs on Fire (EOFire) is truly awesome! His show is one of my favorites. His show is an award winning podcast where he interviews Entrepreneurs who he likes to say, “are truly ON FIRE.” The show has over 2000 episodes! He’s definitely a powerhouse in the podcasting world. JLD likes to say that he helps Entrepreneurs IGNITE their dream life.

The Tim Ferriss Show (Tim Ferriss)

Tim Ferriss, the author of the uber successful 4 Hour Workweek, has a very successful podcast called the Tim Ferriss show. Tim likes to say he’s a bestselling author and human guinea pig. 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.” Tim likes to say 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.

Smart Passive Income (Pat Flynn)

The one and only Pat Flynn is so awesome and so is his show Smart Passive Income (SPI). He reveals all of his online business and blogging strategies, income sources and killer marketing tips and tricks so you can be ahead of the curve with your online business or blog. Pat has been supporting his family 100% with passive income generated online, easily earning a six-figure salary while working only a few hours a week. Automation, outsourcing, crowdsourcing, search engine optimization, building authority and trust, niche sites, social media, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Podcasting, eBooks, online courses, affiliate marketing, getting things done and everything that works (and doesn’t work) to help you better understand how to crush it with your online business.

How I Built This (Guy Raz)

If you’re interested in learning how successful companies got to where they are today, then you need to check out How I Built This by Guy Raz. Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world’s best known companies. As Guy likes to say, “the show weaves a narrative journey about innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists — and the movements they built.”

Masters of Scale (Reid Hoffman)

The famous man behind LinkedIn, Greylock, and so many other famous startups, Reid Hoffman, has his own podcast called the Masters of Scale. The purpose of the show is to determine how companies grow from zero to a gazillion. Reid Hoffman interviews famous founders, and shares some of their insights. Guests include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg, Netflix’s Reed Hastings, Google’s Eric Schmidt, Spanx’s Sara Blakely. I highly recommend checking it out.

Online Marketing Made Easy (Amy Porterfield)

How do I start an online business? Grow my email list to thousands of subscribers? Sell more and grow faster? These are just some of the big questions that leading online marketing strategist, Amy Porterfield, digs into on the top-ranked Online Marketing Made Easy Podcast. Amy Porterfield helps people to generate more profits and to make sense of the online marketing space, implement the strategies that really get results, and turn that side hustle into a business that lasts. I first heard about her podcast when she was a guest on Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income show.

EntreLeadership (Ken Coleman & Dave Ramsey)

This is a really awesome show! I love the host Ken Coleman. The EntreLeadership Podcast features lively discussions and tips on leadership and business by some of the top minds in the business, like Mark Cuban, Seth Godin, Jim Collins and Simon Sinek.

Rich Dad Radio Show (Robert Kiyosaki)

The one and only Robert Kiyosaki, the auther of the ultra successful book Rich Dad Poor Dad, has his own show, the Rich Dad Radio Show. The show helps you beat conventional advice on personal finance, investing, and business. Robert Kiyosaki sits down with professionals from the world of money, investing, business, and personal development. Listeners will be provided various viewpoints on how to set themselves up for financial success. Definitely recommend checking it out.

Marketing School (Neil Patel & Eric Siu)

The Marketing School show is great for really short, but amazing actionable content. Neil Patel and Eric Siu bring you daily ACTIONABLE digital marketing lessons that they’ve learned through years of being in the trenches. Whether you have a new website or an established business, learn the latest SEO, content marketing, social media, email marketing, conversion optimization and general online marketing tactics that work today.
