If you work from home or as a solopreneur, you're probably used to long hours or silence.
In order to feel a little more connected, get creative and learn techniques to grow my business, I love listening to podcasts. Podcasts are a great way to get information and feel a little less lonely when working solo.
I will tell you, I don't just listen to business related podcasts. A few of my non-business related favorites are: Lore, Spiritual-ish and Criminal.
But, when I'm having a busier week and can't read a blog post, which is still my favorite way to get content, I love listening to podcasts from industry leaders and thought-provokers.
If you're looking for a few new podcasts to listen to for your business, be sure to check these out!
