I resolve to listen to more podcasts in 2018. I love the wisdom that is found in listening to others for two reasons: 1 – I get to hear from others who have been where I am or have been also and there is encouragement and a sense of community there. In starting and growing a business there is SO much to learn and in hearing from people who have done this before you,  you learn what to do and what not to do and often gain a new wave of encouragement in listening to others successes and failures. 2- I get to hear from those who are in completely different industries all together. Their day looks completely different than mine but what you learn there is how others do entrepreneurship, leadership, marketing and finances which help you to not only appreciate those different industries and what happens in those spaces but also I get to practically apply those practices to run a more healthy and successful business. Here are a few of the podcasts that I’ve been listening to lately that inspire and encourage me.

The Business Boutique – The Business Boutique is a growing community of women who are making money doing what they love. On the podcast, Christy will inspire and equip you, answer your questions about business and share success stories from other women just like you.

Entreleadership – Entreleadership touches on topics so important to the growth of a healthy business – communication, culture, goals, growth, leadership, money, people and time management.

For The Love  – A couple of my favorite episodes lately have been Creating Space for Joy with Simplified Living with Emily Ley and Getting Vulnerable with Brene Brown.

The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey – Jamie hosts people who have buckets and buckets of wisdom on all fronts including entrepreneurship, life/work balance. I really enjoyed her most recent episode featuring Mica May from May Designs, #174.
