Podcasts To Listen To That Will Help You Thrive in Business and Life

(Last Updated On: May 11, 2021)

I wanted to compile a list of podcasts you can listen to that will spark creativity, inspiration, motivation, and action-taking. Bookmark this page and check back often to see what podcasts get added to this ever-growing list.

Knowledge is critical; we all know that, but we often do not embrace it daily. The more you feed your brain with valuable content, the more valuable you become to whatever industry you are a part of. I knew this was important, but it became etched in my brain after attending a private networking event in Atlanta, GA. Hosted by Matt Bacak.

One of the biggest takeaways from the trip was that everyone I talked to was a sponge when it came to consistently enrich their minds with daily shots of value from other top influences in the industry.

Makes sense, right?

I think I listened to 15 hours' worth of podcasts during the trip. If there is one thing that can blast your dome with gravy, it is looking to podcasts daily.

So as I traveled back from Hotlanta, I decided to conjure up an ever-growing list of mind-blowing podcasts. These will help you become even more valuable in your entrepreneurial craft.

Another thing is that it's so easy to listen to a podcast. Just stream it on your favorite podcast app and enjoy. If you tell me you don't have time to listen to a podcast, then I think you need to re-evaluate your time management.

Here are some mind piercing podcasts I have on my Podcast app that I think you'll benefit from as an entrepreneur (No particular order, all great for feeding your brain)

Anti-preneur – The Ben Settle Show

This podcast is definitely an acquired taste for some people. Ben marches to the beat of his own drum and tells you like it is whether you like it or not, so going in with an open mind is a good idea. Tons of value, though, so I recommend tuning in.

Cardone Zone with Grant Cardone

Grant Cardone can also come off a bit arrogant, to be completely honest. When I first started listening to him, I wasn't a big fan and wondered what all the hype was. If you can get past his over the top personality, he does drop some golden nuggets about business. Give Grant a chance; I think you will be pleasantly surprised with what he brings to the table.
