Personal and professional development are extremely important for women business owners. There are so many ways we can uplevel our lives and businesses. We can invest in coaches, mentors, conferences, courses, programs, workshops, webinars, and books. However, I also believe we can learn and grow by listening to podcasts.
But, with so many podcasts online today, it can be difficult and time-consuming to find the best podcast for you and your business. As a woman entrepreneur, I am mostly interested in hearing and learning from other women in business. It’s refreshing to learn how women started their businesses, the strategies, and statics they used to overcome setbacks and challenges.
I’ve made it a habit to feed my mind and entrepreneurial spirit daily with podcasts from women entrepreneurs. Below are my top five favorite podcasts every woman in business should not miss.
