The podcast is different from a lot of other business podcasts because it's run by two full time software developers who run their own consultancy. We get into the nitty gritty of running a software business and how we work with clients, what works well, what doesn't work well, etc. A lot of other podcasts out there are great, but we really look at our business from the perspective of software developers.

#5 How I Built This with Guy Raz

No Title

No Description

Source

I am a regular listener of the NPR podcast, “How I Built This with Guy Raz.” The podcast profiles successful entrepreneurs to understand how they started their business, what challenges they faced, and how they overcame them. It provides a great source of inspiration for non-traditional ways to drive growth -- the common thread is that the entrepreneurs used unique and non-traditional ways to launch their companies and gain traction in the market. They were often forced to do it because they had limited resources, but it's a good reminder that you don't always need to spend a lot of money to get results.

#6 The Consulting Pipeline

No Title

No Description

This one is a bit more niche. The host, Philip Morgan has developed particular expertise in how a business can start to specialize, i.e. go from being a generalist (e.g. a full-service digital agency) to being a specialist in a particular field (e.g. building sales funnels for dentists). Doing this kind of specialization can massively increase revenue and make it easier for other businesses to identify good referrals for you, but there are some issues particularly around the fear of turning away business. If you have any interest in this I highly recommend this podcast to you. It's particularly useful to those who run a B2B business like consulting or another type of professional service business.

#8 GaryVee’s Audio Experience

No Description

Podcasts are a fantastic source of content, and there hundreds of great business podcasts available today. One particular podcast that I recommend to all business owners and entrepreneurs is GaryVee's Audio Experience. Whilst much of the content will be designed as a motivational and inspirational resource, there is endless nuggets of actionable business and marketing tips throughout. As well as being a great source of short, digestible content, Gary also regularly interviews high-profile CEOs which are an awesome insight into what it takes to become the best in business.

#9 The Paid Search Podcast

No Title

No Description

I'm a big fan of The Paid Search Podcast. It's a podcast about Pay Per Click (PPC) Search Engine Marketing, specifically Google AdWords. What makes it stand out for me is the dynamic between the two hosts, Chris Schaeffer & Jason Rothman. They are true experts in their field, but they are relaxed and have a great sense of humour. They make learning about a pretty bland topic a great experience. I recommend anyone interested in running PPC campaigns check this one out.

Up My Influence has launched a podcast series entitled the Thoughtful Entrepreneur. These podcasts engage small business owners and entrepreneurs in a variety of topics to provide other aspiring entrepreneurs with a variety of insight with regard to opportunities, challenges and the mindset needed to successfully grow their business and visibility. One of the episodes that was particularly valuable was Episode 006 of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur.

Michael Roub had a number of insightful points from an outsiders perspective related to business owner experiences and challenges. He was able to relate learnings from both successful and underperforming businesses and their owners to benefit listeners.

#12 From The Jump

No Title

This show is much different from other business podcasts that I listen to, because the host of the show is a relatively young entrepreneur, and he mainly looks to educate millennials on business, marketing while sharing his personal wins/losses in business. The host also invites other entrepreneurs on the show to add value to the audience. This podcast is a must-have for all young entrepreneurs!
