3 Podcasts That Are Helping Me Become A Better Blogger

podcastsI’m totally obsessed with podcasts right now.  I heard that word “podcast” a while back but I didn’t really know what it was.  For those of you who don’t know, a podcast is audio content usually in the form of a blog or show with several episodes.  My obsession started with the Serial Podcast.  If you’re into true crime stories, check it out. After that ended I started looking for other podcasts under the business category on iTunes and I hit the jackpot.  I’m excited to share my 3 favorite podcasts that help be become a better blogger and businesswoman.

Kate’s Take

I fell in love with Kate’s Take instantly.  If you start from the beginning, Kate will tell her story about how she left her corporate job to start a business and failed in her first entrepreneurial leap.  Talk about real talk.  The value I find in this podcast is she not only talks about things like creating a platform, building systems, and processes, she really gets into the common barriers we face regarding fear and mindset.  Another cool thing about Kate’s Take, the audio blog for Entrepreneur on Fire, is that they publish their income reports.  So you can see exactly how they make and spend money.

Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

Amy is an expert in Facebook marketing but her podcast offer much more.  When I listened to her first episode (which is from about two years ago), I had five action items for my blog.  While I am not big on Facebook marketing for my blog, she offers tips that just make sense.  Amy also gives great advice on list building, which is critical to growing your business and connecting to your audience. Recently, Amy took her blog to the next level by offering a free download to accompany each episode.  Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn

I’m hooked on Smart Passive Income for a few reasons.  The host, Pat Flynn, is very personable and transparent.  I also like how he is vocal about the fact that everything he does is for his family and he centers his business around making his family happy first. This podcast covers just about everything from blogging to entrepreneurship. Pat interviews guests that started off small and made it big.  On episode 148 he interviewed a couple that created a small food blog a few years ago and are now making about 20k a month.  Talk about inspiring.

I just had to share these podcasts with the BGB community because so often we feel like we aren’t getting traction in our business and we don’t know where to turn.  These podcasts are a great start to get ideas and inspiration.
