Top 10 Podcasts for Small Businesses


Vicki O'Neill Top 10 List of Podcasts for Small Businesses

As the list of Podcasts grows, so does the confusion on which podcasts to subscribe to and listen to.


There are many Podcasts to choose from in various categories from Business, Financing, Investing, Podcasting, Marketing, Sales, Social Media and many others. It is definitely getting to the point of being overwhelming!


So I decided to create a top list of shows! I narrowed it down to 10 because there are SO many - and this is a good starting point. I included the Podcast name, category, description and screenshot of episodes and artwork so you'll know it when you see it. If you click on the image it's linked to the Podcast for you to listen to episodes and subscribe.


There are multiple podcast players for most of these listed so if the one I linked isn't your preference, just Google the Show name and the results will reflect other platforms.


Enjoy!!


1. The Tim Ferriss Show with Tim Ferriss - Investing Tim Ferriss is a self-experimenter and bestselling author, best known for The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been translated into 40+ languages. Newsweek calls him "the world's best human guinea pig," and The New York Times calls him "a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk." In this show, he deconstructs world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, chess, pro sports, etc.), digging deep to find the tools, tactics, and tricks that listeners can use.

Some of these entrepreneurs are very well known, and some not known at all and that’s the cool part! Here we will share with you our best interviews from Foundr magazine showcasing this persons processes, failures, critical lessons learnt and actionable strategies showing YOU how to build a successful business.
