Podcasts are an excellent way for small business owners to get the information they need to grow their business. With so many podcasts out there on a variety of topics, it’s an easy way to learn new things on-the-go. But where to begin? There are so many different podcasts on the market right now but it can be daunting to dive into the medium.
No matter your interests, you can find a podcast that is right up your alley. From business, to inspiration and life coaching, to even weird medical facts when your brain needs a break from moving your company forward, there’s bound to be a podcast for you.
At Kin, we have some avid podcast listeners on the team. Here is a list of just a few that we enjoy turning into each week.
The StoryBrand podcast
You don’t have to be a marketer to enjoy this podcast. Don Miller, author of the popular book and marketing strategy, StoryBrand, brings on a variety of authors, philosophers, business strategists, and athletes to talk about different aspects of business. Each episode is chock full of great information on how to get out of your own way and grow your business.
A few of our personal favorite episodes include interviews with Ryan Holiday on how the best business leaders know how to be still and Gary Hamill on why micromanaging is killing your business.
Give it a listen for an instant shot of confidence.
The Michelle Obama podcast
Despite being a political figure, Michelle Obama’s podcast isn’t necessarily one about politics. Michelle talks about growing up in Chicago, being a mother to young women, feminism, and developing her own identity outside of being first lady of the United States. It’s an inspirational podcast to listen to regardless of your political affiliation.
