6 podcasts every entrepreneur should listen to

Each host brings a unique personal perspective and the information he or she shares targets a particular audience

The internet has made it easier than ever to stay up to date with the latest thoughts in the entrepreneurial community. With a computer, tablet or phone you can access iTunes, YouTube, Spotify or specific websites to listen to top podcasts and get informed. No matter where you are, you can find a podcast that will help you along your entrepreneurial journey.

Every podcast is different. Each host brings a unique personal perspective and the information he or she shares targets a particular audience.

However, not all podcasts are of the same quality. Here are 6 podcasts that are tried and true, making them must-follows for any entrepreneur. Their hosts have all reached massive levels of success and help present up-and-coming entrepreneurs with the most important lessons of the industry.

1. The MFCEO Project Podcast

Andy Frisella is the founder and CEO of a number of nutrition, supplement and fitness companies. Like many entrepreneurs, he started from scratch with limited capital, but he put in the time and effort to master his industry. He now makes millions each year through his vertically integrated supply chain.

In Frisella’s podcast, he cuts through the excuses that hold many entrepreneurs back and teaches people to focus on results and owning their journey. He mixes in a variety of content on the show, including interviews with high performers, Q&A sessions, inspirational episodes where he explains how people can hold themselves accountable to their success and, most importantly, tons of practical how-to knowledge that entrepreneurs can use in every area of business.

2. The Tim Ferriss Show

“The Tim Ferriss Show” is run by New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss. On the show, Ferriss brings in a selection of successful individuals from diverse backgrounds and industries to talk about the tools and tricks they use.

Ferriss includes lessons from his book The 4-Hour Workweek that help entrepreneurs work smarter and not harder. In Ferriss’s mind, every successful person has a story that can teach you something, and he ties all of these stories into his podcast for a consolidated selection of entrepreneurship education.

3. Smart Passive Income Podcast

The “Smart Passive Income Podcast” does exactly what it says: it teaches you how to build passive income channels. The host, Pat Flynn, has developed a range of passive income techniques for himself over the years, including developing online training courses for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, which came from an analysis of rising keywords on Google Trends.

During his show, Flynn talks about various different opportunities for creating passive income and what you need to do to make each one happen.

4. The $100 MBA Show

Omar Zenhom dropped out of the Wharton Business School because he was frustrated with how much the school cost and how little valuable information he was receiving.

He started “The $100 MBA Show” to help people realize they do not need an MBA to get into business. Throughout the show he emphasizes how to build your personal brand and provides other important lessons that will generate success more quickly—and much more cheaply—than getting an MBA education.

5. Mixergy Startup Show

The “Mixergy Startup Show” includes a variety of interviews with founders from different backgrounds who all share their entrepreneurial journey. Through the interviews, listeners can begin to get an idea of the decision-making processes and mindsets that successful entrepreneurs use.

The podcast is particularly helpful for aspiring entrepreneurs who are not sure where to start and want to learn from the successes and failures of those who have already gone through the process.

6. How to Start a Startup

Sam Altman runs Y-Combinator, which is the most successful startup accelerator program in the world. He has taken the various lessons he has learned from all of the entrepreneurs and investors in the Y-Combinator ecosystem and compiled them into the “How to Start a Startup” podcast.

Each episode takes a particular lesson that Altman believes is important for entrepreneurs to understand while pursuing a startup and leverages a number of high-profile individuals to help teach the lesson. This podcast is particularly important for entrepreneurs who hope to launch a tech company and live the Silicon Valley dream.
