Six Podcasts for Creative Business Owners
Podcasts are an AMAZING free resource for creative business owners. When I first started tapping into the world of podcasts for creative business owners, I was blown away! It is incredible how much good info is out there for free. However, sometimes after I discovered a podcast that I LOVED, I would have a hard time finding another one to transition to next. So if you’re like me and you ever find yourself in a podcast rut and are looking for a new go-to, here is a list of my favorite podcasts for virtual assistants, freelancers, and creative business owners!
Whether you’re interested in social media marketing, how to grow your business, or simply looking for encouragement and knowledge about the creative industry, these podcasts have it all. Each of the following podcasts have provided excellent insight and tips that have helped me kickstart the LAB and I am so excited to share them with you!
