What podcasts do you guys listen to?
Feel like you could use some more creative business inspiration?
Well, I have been fortunate enough to travel around the country and have compiled some vendor & artist favorite business related podcasts ~ that I would love to share with YOU.
I made a rule in the past month that I would no longer listen to music while I work, and the only type of sound I can listen to are stories from the greats. It's been really enlightening so far.
Here are the 5 podcasts I am currently obsessed with:
How I Built This, by Guy Raz on NPR. This has been my absolute favorite podcast to listen too. No, seriously. I've listened to almost every single one multiple times and could probably recite it. It is "a podcast about innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity and insight — told by the founders of some of the world's best known companies and brands. If you've ever built something from nothing, something you really care about — or even just dream about it — check out How I Built This."
The Accidental Creative, by Todd Henry. “The Accidental Creative podcast shares how to build practical, everyday practices that help you stay prolific, brilliant and healthy in life and work. Host Todd Henry (author of the books The Accidental Creative, Die Empty, and Louder Than Words) interviews artists, authors and business leaders, and offers tips for how to thrive in life and work.”
Being Boss, by Emily Thompson & Kathleen Shannon. “Being Boss is a podcast for creative entrepreneurs with Emily Thompson & Kathleen Shannon. Our listeners (our tribe!) want to ‘be boss.’ They are the rebels, the quiet ones, the schemers, and the dreamers! So our stories, advice and interviews are about being boss the way we choose, and being who we are in work and life!”
Thrive by Design, from Flourish and Thrive (Tracy Matthews and Robin Kramer). “Combines Tracy’s personal experience as a designer with Robin’s expertise in client relationships, sales, branding and business systems. Together they offer a depth of insight and knowledge you won’t find anywhere else… and they keep things fun!”
The Tim Ferriss show, is “generally the #1 business podcast on all of iTunes, and it’s been ranked #1 (of all 300,000+ podcasts) on many occasions. It is the first business/interview podcast to pass 100,000,000 downloads, and it has been selected as iTunes’ Best of 2014, Best of 2015, and Best of 2016 (most downloaded). Each episode, I deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art, etc.) to extract the tactics, tools, and routines you can use. This includes favorite books, morning routines, exercise habits, time-management tricks, and much more.”
Hopefully you have found some new inspiring things to listen to and apply to your own creative businesses.
