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.
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.
A recent discovery, the purpose behind #theTools series is to empower aspiring and already established female business owners to reach their goals. This episode looks at the importance of establishing a memorable brand, defining your brand strategy and promise.
In this episode, the founder of stationary mega brand kikki.K, Kristina Karlsson shares her business journey from a one-woman band to now employing more than 1,000 staff across 143 countries. She also shares her top business start up tips and how social media can be used to drive business brand awareness.
Founder of Man Repeller website, Leandra Medine, along with several members of her editorial team discuss the content creation process from an article’s inception to its publication on the website. They also reflect on what makes a good piece of content in this day and age of clickbait content.
In this episode Jaharn talks to Australian illustrator, designer and content creator Jasmine Dowling about collaborating with other brands, the importance of individuality, using social media to grow your business’ brand and dealing with the comparison trap. If you’re a fan of Jasmine’s beautiful typography artwork and prints, then you’ll love this insight into her working process.
I’d love to know, what’s your favourite podcast series?
