Happy Tuesday! I’m here with a quick post to share some of the podcasts that inspire me as a creative entrepreneur. If you are one, aspire to be one, or are simply interested in them, definitely check these out.
don’t keep your day job
Host Cathy Heller is a creative entrepreneur who quit her own day job to be a full time singer and songwriter. She interviews other people about their stories of quitting their day jobs to pursue their dreams.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “How to Change Your Subconscious Mind”
the goal digger podcast
This one is hosted by the inspiring Jenna Kutcher who built a six figure photography business and has since expanded into several digital projects as well. She often covers topics related to digital careers like social media, photography, and such.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “Social Media Influencer 101: Ask a Blogger Anything” with Kathleen Barnes of Carrie Bradshaw Lied
good company with grace bonney
This is a newer podcast, so it’ll be easy to catch up. It’s hosted by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge and the author of “The Company of Women”. She speaks with guests about the intersection of creativity and business.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “Genevieve Gorder Discusses Career Longevity and Reinvention”
raising the bar with alli + michael
I absolutely love this podcast hosted by Drybar founders Alli Webb and Michael Landau. They talk with other entrepreneurs about their shared experiences and give great tips on scaling your business. I love their dynamic because, while they are both super smart, Alli is more on the creative side where Michael has a traditional business background.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “Creating and Cultivating” with Jaclyn Johnson
Another newish podcast, this one is hosted by Jaclyn Johnson, the founder of Create + Cultivate. She has a book with the same name that celebrates entrepreneurial women who redefine work on their own terms.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “From Blog to Brand with Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores”
This one is hosted by Hillary Kerr, the co-founder of Clique Media (WhoWhatWear, MyDomaine, Byrdie). She talks with women who have made big career changes, thus starting a “second life”. I like this one because it shows that you can really change your life and follow your dream at any age, even if you don’t think you’re qualified to do it.
MUST-LISTEN EPISODE: “Kelly LeVeque, Holistic Nutritionist and Celebrity Health Coach”
