I’m never one to follow trends too obsessively, I like to take my time with things and scope them out in my own time. That’s why it’s taken me a while to get into the podcast flow, I don’t listen to the radio as much as I used to unless a client is being featured or there’s a specific show and I’ve always considered podcasts to be static radio shows. Well my bubble has been burst! Whilst I’m not obsessed I have become an absolute huge admirer of podcasts recently and have enjoyed listening to some great ones, they motivate me when I need that spark up my backside to keep things moving in business and there are just so many stories that are being told authentically and intentionally that really inspire me. Here are some of my favourite podcast interviews that will help boost your confidence, build your brand consciousness and raise your motivation levels:
This interview on the Heart + Hustle Blog featuring Bobbi of Ready To Blog was just so endearing, so real and authentic. It touches on everything from social media to employing your first member of staff.
I absolutely loved this NPR “How I Built This” interview featuring the founder of Carol’s Daughter, Lisa Price. Her tenacity and work ethic shines through and her down to earth nature is clear. What particularly resonated with me was her honesty about her journey. I don’t want to spoil this for you because I really want you to listen and be encouraged:
I really enjoyed this interview with Shonay Shote about her experiences of taking the big leap and spreading her wings. Aside from her courage it was really inspiring to hear about her willingness to seek new opportunities.
This was an absolutely brilliant podcast interview on the Support Is Sexy platform featuring PR expert Karen Taylor Bass which highlighted the importance of understanding the difference between your passion and your gifts and why boundaries matter in business and in life as a whole.
This has to be one of my favourite podcast interviews, it’s on Myleik Teele’s podcast and is a great conversation with business woman Karleen Roy, Founder of The Vanity Group. Not only is it filled with useful nuggets for business growth but the anecdotes are just awe-inspiring! Listen and find out for yourself.
I hope you will enjoy listening to these podcasts as much as I did and that you will find something useful to take away from each of them. Listen, learn and share!
