Do you also love to listen to podcasts? Podcasts aren’t only a great pastime, they can also inspire and motivate you. You can learn something new and improve your skills. Even if you only have a couple of minutes during your lunch break to listen. I’ve created this list for you of some of my favorites. They cover topics around business, marketing, and creativity. If you’re a creative entrepreneur make sure to check them out.
1. Creative Pep Talk
My favorite podcast. Making you laugh and cry. Sometimes at the same time. Andy J. Miller tells the real story of being a creative entrepreneur. He doesn’t exclude the dark side and is totally honest about the struggles we have as creatives. His own story shows that career paths aren’t always straight. Sometimes you have to make a detour to find your purpose in life. The word pep talk is on point because this podcast not only makes you feel inspired but it’s also the kick of motivation you need. There are also lots of interviews with inspiring artists from all fields. You can find one of my favorites with Fran Meneses here.
