Over the last few months, I have been listening to a lot of podcasts during quarantine. Some of these I have had the honor of being on personally and many I’m going to be pitching over the next few months.
(Pitching? Yes! Pitching. If you’re ready to pitch yourself for interviews, make sure you download my free Podcast Pitching Guide! There are so many incredible podcasts out there looking for experts.)
I truly believe that podcasts are an amazing resource for free content to expand your business, explore new techniques, and learn from other entrepreneurs’ experiences. One of the best ways to learn as a business owner is to hear from others who have been through what you may be going through now.
Below, I’ve pulled together a list of 30 amazing podcasts for creative entrepreneurs that you should subscribe to today!
