I’m a huge fan of business podcasts. All that free information and expert advice – with so much to learn about, what’s not to love? I listen to them on public transport, driving (without kids of course) or taking an evening stroll.
Today, I’ve pulled together some of the best business podcasts for women for you to check out.
Each episode Fiona and Loren invite a business expert to talk about an important subject. I love that Fiona and Loren ask questions from a newcomer’s perspective and their guests are always helpful on a practical level. They cover a huge range of subjects, such as feng shui for business, Software as a Service, using Canva, automated emails and so much more. I love that Loren and Fiona share their struggles too – they are authentic and relatable.
The People Leaders Podcast is run by leadership and team development experts Jan and Michelle Terkelsen. It’s a great resource if you’re a manager or business leader managing a high performing team.
Jan and Michelle provide a variety of practical tips, valuable insights, and compelling interviews with leadership experts around the world. Bonus: I love that they’re fairly short (around the 10-minute mark).
Women in the Business Arena
Self-proclaimed ‘Success Strategist’ Sonya Stattman founded Women in the Business Arena. Yes, she does have an American accent, but she moved to Melbourne, Australia in 2016 so she’s one of us now.
If you’re a female entrepreneur, and you want to reignite the fire in your belly when it comes to your business, you’ll love this. Sonya promises you help in experiencing ‘more fulfilment, freedom, and real success’. There have been some really interesting topics covered lately, such as ‘Navigating Business, Work, and Family as an Entrepreneur’ and ‘The Right Way to Grow Your Business’. A great one to tune into.
Suzi Dafnis has been running podcasts for about five years – and has three different ones on the go.
There’s the Content Sells podcast with co-host Michelle Falzon. It provides helpful advice when putting together content marketing (such as blogs and e-newsletters) for your clients.
There’s also Her Business – Insights for Women In Business – a great podcast if you want to be inspired by other Australian high-achieving entrepreneurs.
Then you have Social Media for Small Business with co-host Cat Matson. Pretty self-explanatory, but with the social media sphere constantly changing, it’s a good one for keeping up with the latest tactics.
Business Women Australia
Hosted by Annemarie Cross, the Business Women Australia podcast is run by a variety of industry specialists, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and employers who are leading members of the organisation.
Not just for business owners, this is a great podcast for leaders as well. I especially enjoyed ‘The Power of Team Work and a Connected, Supportive Community’ with the BWA founder, Jennifer Bryant.
From Crappy to Happy
Not necessarily a business podcast, but a great self-help resource run by Tiffiny Hall (a coach from The Biggest Loser) and psychologist Cass Dunn. Crappy to Happy gives useful advice and practical tips on getting fit, setting goals, establishing good habits and much more. Tiff has the health and fitness expertise and Cass knows the human mind so together they make a great combination.
Other non-business podcasts I enjoy
Plus, like half the world, I’ve been addicted to these podcasts (you may notice a common theme):
Serial – investigates the 1999 conviction of Adnan Syed – did he kill his 18 year old girlfriend Hae Min Lee or is he innocent?
Teacher’s Pet – Australia has gone nuts for this podcast for a reason – the story is fascinating. A little repetitive in parts (could have done with strict editing) but addictive nonetheless.
Dirty John – a fascinating tale of unlucky in love Debra and her latest whirlwind romance with a dashing doctor – but is he too good to be true?
Trace – the devastating murder of Maria James makes for compelling listening. The stories about the church leaders involved will leave you speechless.
