7 Empowering Podcasts to Grow Your Business (and Empower YOU!)

Are you using empowering podcasts to grow your business? If you’re anything like me, you always want to be learning something new. There’s so much knowledge out there just waiting for you to tap into it, especially in the fast-paced world of entrepreneurship. 

But wow, life can get busy can’t it? Your kids need attention, the house needs cleaning and you definitely can’t skip out on yet another date night with your partner. Thank goodness for podcasts! My secret (not so secret now!) fountain of knowledge for when I want to grow my business and empower myself to do so.

These empowering podcasts mean that I can keep up to date with new trends and industry updates before they’re even common knowledge, whilst developing a strong mindset to translate that knowledge into action
I love that a) podcasts are totally free, so you can access course quality knowledge wherever you are and b) when I’m listening to a podcast, I can multi-task. Yep, that’s a productivity hack right there!

Podcasts are a great way to shake up your learning when you’re tired of staring at the screen all day and just need to give your eyes a break. You can pop your headphones in, brush up on your business knowledge and clean the house at the same time! Or choose an empowering podcast to be the soundtrack to your daily commute or your morning routine.

Wondering what podcasts to listen to? I’ve rounded up my 7 most empowering podcasts to help grow your business. I’m talking growth that’s based on knowledge, self-belief and strategy. Because, and if you’ve experienced coaching with me you’ll know this, I’m a firm believer that there is no clear cut line between life and business. True success happens when you’re feeling empowered in all areas of your life.

Your personal life affects your business life, and your business life affects your personal life. As business owners, we can’t simply close the office door and forget about work for the rest of the day. It’s just not that simple.

So dive into these empowering podcasts and start crafting a life and business that you love.

1. The ‘Real Talk’ Podcast

Happy Place with Fearne Cotton

If any podcast could be summed up by the phrase ‘real talk’, this is it. Happy Place sees British TV presenter Fearne Cotton sit down with a wide array of celebrity guests, from Hilary Clinton to Elizabeth Gilbert and so many more, to skip straight past the small talk and dive into life as it is, the ups, downs and everything in between.

Perfect for when you need reminding that all of us find life tough sometimes.

2. The Research-Based Podcast

Unlocking Us with Brené Brown

Do you follow me on Instagram? If you do, then you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Brene Brown. From her bold (quotable) statements to her scientific research, she’s a resource that I turn to time after time again.

And her podcast is no different. This is one of the most empowering podcasts I’ve ever listened to, as Brené guides us, and her special guests, through a process of unlocking and understanding our true selves.

3. The Empowering Business Podcast

Limitless Life with Melyssa Griffin

Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations

What list of empowering podcasts would be complete without a mention of Oprah?! If you’re looking for a podcast to pop on in the background whilst you’re making your morning coffee and getting ready for the day ahead, this is the perfect one.

Ever wondered what would happen if you put a microphone in front of the thought leaders of our generation, and recorded each conversation with no filter?
