Inspiring podcasts for creatives

I love podcasts! If you follow me on Instagram (here and here), you’ll know that one of my favourite things to do is head off for a walk after work with a freshly downloaded podcast.

While murder mystery series are the go-to choice among many friends, I prefer interviews with creatives and entrepreneurial business owners. Hearing them talk about how they got started and their secrets to business success is a constant source of inspiration to me as a part-time freelance writer and content creator. Here are a few of my recent favourites.

 

Your Creative Start – #22 Money management with Chelsea Murphy from Cash Full Stop 

I discovered the Your Creative Start podcasts about five months ago and quickly fell in love with the array of different creatives and experts that Jaharn Giles interviews (it’s well worth taking a trip back in her podcast archives). In this episode, Chelsea and Jaharn discuss the steps that creative freelancers or businesses owners should follow to reach their financial goals, the importance of using positive language when discussing money, and how to eliminate stress and angst around finances.
