GET INSPIRED BY PODCASTS

Last year I did a short post about some of my favourite on-line resources, including some podcasts, but having discovered quite a few more that I cannot wait to listen to when they fall into my podcast app, I thought I would dedicate an entire post to the lovely people who keep me company on my journey to and from work!

Obviously, what I listen to, and what you may want to listen to, will be different, but some of these are transferable between interests anyway! Mostly I love listening to creatives, entrepreneurs and lifestyle coaches. I enjoy coming away from an episode feeling inspired, motivated and super keen to get going on a new idea. That said, there are so many podcasts to choose from out there that, no matter what your interests, there will be something for you. It took me a while to find the ones I really enjoy, but once you find one or two, you will usually find others through the guests they are chatting to or in their show notes. 

Here are my current list of favourites:

Not only do they discuss really relevant subject matters like creating a premium client experience, getting noticed, how to handle too many ideas at once, frugal habits of successful entrepreneurs, how to make the most of your day and loads more, but they give awesome, actionable steps and tip that can be implemented right away.

She Creates Business, a Podcast for Wedding Pros with Kinsey

Suitable for: Anyone wishing to learn more about running a business within the wedding industry.

Overview: This was such an amazing find, actually it was a recommendation from a Gemma Sands, who hosts another fave podcast of mine. When I discovered She Creates Business, I felt like I had fallen on my feet because it specific to the industry I am about to launch a business in. Kinsey has such a welcoming approach to her interviews and is so transparent that you always feel like you learn something new. If you like a more gentle approach then you will love this.

My favourite episode: Alex Estes: The Prairie Letter Shop (this is more specific to me as I loved the wedding stationary chat, but there are lots of great episodes, including general business discussions like Branding (talks about wedding industry branding but you can take something away from it regardless) and Instagram/Pinterest strategy for business.
