In 2013, I started spending a lot of time walking. Many of you know I got a new puppy in February of last year. As soon as Moose came home, I started spending a solid hour (sometimes more) each day walking him around my neighborhood, getting out all of his infectious puppy energy.
So what does an entrepreneur do with all that walking time? Fall in love with podcasts, of course!
Before I got Moose, I was a very occasional podcast listener. I would grab an episode of This American Life if I missed one, but I wasn’t seriously invested.
But now that I’m logging all this leash time, I’ve figured out how to subscribe to podcast using iTunes and how to search for the best business podcasts online. Now I never take Moose out without a podcaster’s voice in my ear, and I’ve gotten some killer business advice from my favorite shows.
Want to know how to get started with listening to podcasts in iTunes? Check out this excellent FAQ podcast page from Apple to get you started.
If you’d like to know who I’ve got in my ear this winter, here are a few of my absolute favorites:
- The TED Radio Hour
- The Smart Passive Income Podcast
- Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield
- The Unmistakable Creative
