If you’re a new or aspiring female entrepreneur, you know how hard it can be to learn and manage #allthethings.
When you’re just starting out, you have loads of questions: from how to build your brand, where to find clients, and what to do to avoid overwhelm.
It can be challenging to find the right resources for someone specifically in your shoes. And with all the podcasts out there, how do you know where to start?
For me, the best podcasts are ones that provide a dose of inspiration along with practical information you need to keep moving forward in your entrepreneurial journey.
Check out my 8 favorite podcasts for new and aspiring female entrepreneurs (who are hosted by fellow female entrepreneurs):
Being Boss was one of the first podcasts I listened to when I decided to start working for myself. I still consider it a staple! Emily and Kathleen have started a variety of businesses and they talk about everything from mindset to clients to money. If you’re a female entrepreneur and have a question about something in your business, it’s very likely that Being Boss has an episode about it!
I recently discovered this podcast and am a big fan of the name and the theme! Steph Crowder digs into what it really takes to be an entrepreneur today: courage and clarity. She interviews great guests in the industry who share their insights as to both the tangible and intangible things that it takes to make your business a reality. Creating balance, feeling stuck, and handling overwhelm are key topics.
Started by a photographer and Instagrammer Jenna Kutcher, the Goal Digger podcast focuses on (!) helping you achieve your goals. Jenna is an especially great resource for social media and content planning, but for business in general. She has a relatable approach and tone that many other hosts don’t, which makes it feel like you’re just chatting with a friend.
This podcast is one of the best for those still in corporate jobs or with a side hustle who want to turn it full-time. Cathy Heller’s guests and topics are varied, but the main theme is to keep pursuing your passion, no matter what it takes. This is a great one to listen to if you’re feeling down and out or uncertain about going after your dream.
Listening to this podcasts feels like a breath of fresh air! With shorter episodes, Reina’s topics are targeted to help you build your business in a heart-centered way. I love how the topics are super focused and provide tangible takeaways you can start implementing immediately in your business.
This podcast isn’t specific to business, but several of her guests are prominent female leaders. Majo Molfino gets women from all walks of life to share their own personal journey: What they were doing before the felt the call, how they answered the call, and what happened as a result of it. This podcast will inspire you to recognize and embrace your own journey, the good, the bad, and the unknown.
Jadah Sellner is the co-founder of Simple Green Smoothies and now devotes her efforts to helping women build businesses that make profit and a difference. On her podcast, she talks with other female founders about how they lead with love over dollar signs. Topics range from building a business with purpose, expressing your voice, and exploring privilege and power. Listening to this podcast feels like having coffee with a good friend who inspires you to do more.
Tonya Dalton is the founder of Inkwell Press which makes amazing and great planners. (I don’t get paid to say that, I just love them!) A true productivity maven, she shares her top tips on how to be more productive and live happier. Filled with actionable strategies and tools, Tonya talks about how to create a life based on your own priorities. And don’t we all want to do that?!
There are — luckily — are a lot of podcasts for female entrepreneurs by other female entrepreneurs that provide tangible tips as well as inspiration and support you need to move your business forward.
