3 podcasts perfect for women entrepreneurs

Podcast listening numbers are continuing to sharply rise. According to a 2019 report titled the Infinite Dial, more than half of the people in the United States have listened to at least one podcast. Nearly one out of every three people listen to a podcast every month. In 2018, that number was closer to one in four.

Podcasts can be used in a number of fashions — to inform, to entertain, to pass the time. Business owners and professionals can also use podcasts to continuously learn, even when on the move. That’s why there are countless podcasts dedicated to entrepreneurs in almost every industry.

We’ve picked out three of the best podcasts for women entrepreneurs.

Women Taking the Lead

This show, hosted by business coach Jodi Flynn, features interviews with other women business owners and guidance from Flynn herself. Flynn was a psychology major in college, so much of her teaching is based on the mental aspect of running a business. She focuses on confidence, overcoming obstacles and more.   

Flynn is a self-described Type A personality, so she specializes in women like herself. She’s also written a book titled “Accomplished: How to Go from Dreaming to Doing,” which is a step-by-step guide in how to achieve goals.

Flynn releases one or two Women Taking the Lead podcasts per month. You can find the feed on the Apple Podcasts platform.

Being Boss

This podcast specializes in advice for creative entrepreneurs, whether that be freelancers, side-hustlers and more. Hosted by friends and colleagues Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon, Being Boss delves into interviews with other entrepreneurs and discussions between Thompson and Shannon. They enjoy mixing humor with advice.

Since launching the show in January 2015, the pair have released hundreds of episodes and garnered more than 7 million downloads. Episodes are typically released monthly.

Kate’s Take

An entrepreneur herself, Kate Erickson hosts Kate’s Take, which features a behind-the-scenes look at how she runs a seven-figure business — Entrepreneurs on Fire. One of her recent episodes touches on a half-marathon Erickson recently ran. She missed her goal by 33 seconds, but what she learned was much more profound.

Episodes are released weekly.
