10 Podcasts Female Entrepreneurs Need to Listen To


1. For inspiration from top female leaders...

Skimm’d From The Couch is hosted by the co-founders of The Daily Skimm, a newsletter that tells busy women the most important news of the day. In the early days of their start-up, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg learned a lot from networking with entrepreneurs, and when they asked them how they started, their answers weren’t what they expected. They decided that young entrepreneurs needed to hear about “life in the trenches” of starting a business, so they began Skimm’d From The Couch, where they interview powerful female leaders about their career wins and struggles. We recommend checking out their interviews with Erika Nardini, CEO of Barstool Sports, Dr. Leana Wen, the former head of Planned Parenthood, and Valerie Jarret, former Sr. Advisor to President Obama.

2. For super organized women looking to seize the day...

Women Taking the Lead, hosted by Jodi Flynn, is composed of interviews with successful female entrepreneurs, on-air business coaching, and advice from Jodi herself on specific leadership issues. Jodi covers topics such as resolving conflict, networking, risk-taking, personal branding, and Type-A tendencies. The interviews allow you understand how successful business women developed their leadership style, overcame negative mindsets, and what they do now for self-improvement.


3. For those who dream of freelancing...

The Goal Digger answers questions like “How do I build my dream job?”, “Am I ready to leave my 9 to 5?”, and “Can I really turn my passion into profits?” The host, Jenna Kutcher, is a self-made millionaire who made her career through photography, online courses, and Instagram sponsorships. She shares her productivity tips, social media strategies and business hacks and interviews other successful freelancers like Amy Porterfield, Jamie Ivey and Melyssa Griffin.


4. For those looking to build a brand…

Brand New Nation provides tons of resources for how to build your personal brand, grow your followers, and start a business online. Hosts Dani and Kriss interview bloggers, YouTubers, photographers, and writers, on topics like “How to Earn a Full-Time Income as a Blogger” and “How to Travel the World on a Budget”.


5. For Practical Advice…

The Strategy Hour Podcast is hosted by Abagail Pumphrey and Emylee Williams and offers practical business tips on specific topics, like how to hire a virtual assistant, perfect your pitch, and get your website to rank on the first page of Google. They help entrepreneurs “break down their Oprah-sized dreams”, and their advice is actionable and leaves you feeling motivated.


6. For those who want to laugh...

Being Boss is a podcast that helps freelancers, creative entrepreneurs, and side-hustlers make money doing what they love. Kathleen Shannon and Emily Thompson are successful business owners and self-proclaimed “business besties”. They try to keep the episodes humorous and structure them as a friendly conversation between friends while giving practical business advice and tips on how to turn your passions into a paycheck.


7. For Inspiration from the Girlbosses themselves...

Girlboss Radio gives you access to honest conversations with entrepreneurial women that have lived life on their own terms while building businesses with staying power. The hosts are two badass business women in their own rights, Sophia Amoruso, CEO and founder of Girlboss and Neha Gandhi, editor in chief and COO of Girlboss. They have interviewed people like Piera Gelardi, the co-founder and creative director of Refinery29, Wende Zomnir, the Chief Creative Officer of Urban Decay Cosmetics, and Maryellis Bunn, the founder of the Museum of Ice Cream.

9. For a mindset change...

Happy Black Woman is a podcast that helps entrepreneurs feel fulfilled in both their professional and personal lives by changing their mindsets. Rosetta Thurman is a mindset coach and business mentor, which makes her the perfect host to give out inspiration and motivation to female entrepreneurs. We recommend the episodes “Discover your Personal Power”, “5 Ways to Reignite Your Passion for Your Business”, and “Creating Your Ideal Life by Stopping Self-Sabotage”.



10. For the penny pincher...
