Last week, I talked about how we could use our idle time effectively to learn. Listening to podcasts, particularly on business related topics or personal growth was one of it. This week, I would like to share with you a few amazing podcasts that I follow religiously and listen to whenever I could.
Smart Passive Income
Pat Flynn is one of the most authentic entrepreneurs out there. I’ve followed him for years. If you’re looking to start a business that will gradually generate passive income, you should follow this podcast. Smart Passive Income contains a huge volume of online business and blogging strategies, marketing tips and productivity hacks for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. Pat Flynn interviews a wide range of successful entrepreneurs and self-made millionaires who are willing to share knowledge with you.
Originally AskPat podcast featured Q&A sessions where people will send in questions related to their business and Pat Flynn will answer them. In this evolved version, instead of five days a week, Pat Flynn will feature one entrepreneur per week in a targeted coaching session. I enjoy listening to AskPat 2.0 because I could relate to some of the issues that were faced by the entrepreneurs or freelancers. There are also some amazing knowledge and tips you can learn from Pat and the featured entrepreneur.
Chris Ducker is a close friend of Pat Flynn and I heard about him from listening to Pat Flynn’s podcast where he was interviewed. YouPreneur FM is a weekly podcast where Chris dives deep and provides you with the best advice on how to build your personal brand, product or service launch strategies, and marketing yourself.
This is a must go to podcast if you’re a blogger. Darren Rowse has been blogging since 2002 and is currently making a full time living from his blogs for years. He provides insightful knowledge and practical tips on how to build a better blog by creating compelling content, engaging readers and monetizing your blog.
Company of One
Prior to this podcast, I’ve followed Paul Jarvis on his previous podcast known as The Freelancer. It was a quick 10 minutes or less listening which I really loved but Paul is no longer doing that. Ever since he published his book called Company of One, he also has a podcast with the same title where he explores what happens when businesses challenge the traditional idea that bigger is always better. I would also highly recommend that you get the book. It was an amazing read for me as I’ve never wanted to scale up my business to the point that’s beyond my control.
What podcasts do you listen to?
There are so many inspiring business podcasts out there but I keep my list small so I can zoom in to topics that are really close to my heart. Besides, I’m sure we all have our own preference over certain podcasters, the formats they present their ideas or information as well as the lengths of podcasts. Feel free to share in the comment the podcasts you listen to.
