Best business podcasts for business owners

Small businesses can profit the most by learning from more established entrepreneurs’ experience. Entrepreneurs who’ve just launched a taxi service often have too little time to attend conferences and events. A good small business podcast can compensate for it and teach you about scaling, branding, marketing, and more.

My First Million

My First Million by Sam Parr and Shaan Puri focuses on various aspects of running a successful business, from latest market trends to getting your first million of loyal customers. Highly entertaining thanks to how Parr and Puri engage in a conversation, this is more of an inspirational podcast that will give you fresh ideas than a strict how-to guide.

The Business Accelerator

The Business Accelerator podcast is hosted by Michael Hyatt, the New York Times bestselling author, and his daughter Megan Hyatt Miller, Chief Executive Officer at Full Focus. This weekly show features a range of themes helpful for new enterprises, like planning, setting your goals, mastering leadership, and business growth. You’ll even get some much-needed marketing knowledge (gentle reminder: with Onde, you can let experts market your app for you). The two hosts come from different generations, providing listeners with a unique and varied view on business and leadership.

The Tim Ferriss Show

The Tim Ferriss Show is rightly at the top of the list of the best podcasts for business owners. Tim Ferris loves a real and somewhat raw presentation, and expects the same of his guests. He talks through helpful routines and habits, tips and tricks, inspirational content — anything that would make you a better entrepreneur. No wonder this show is chosen as “Best of” Apple Podcasts for three years in a row!

She Did It Her Way

She Did It Her Way is a women-run entrepreneur podcast that spotlights the business lives of successful female entrepreneurs. The show’s host, Amanda Boleyn, has a coaching background — and thus this podcast is primarily there for women to get inspired and start a business. The guest speakers discuss tools they use to make their work successful, reflect on typical failures, and of course, share the experiences of reaching this perfect work/life balance.

Product Hunt Radio

Just as Product Hunt itself, the Product Hunt Radio podcast spotlights the best products in technology, from mobile applications to hardware inventions. This weekly show is hosted by Ryan Hoover, Product Hunt’s founder, and is a must for those who want to run an innovative business and work with technology.

Top podcasts for advanced business owners

An inspiring and informative business podcast is not necessarily a taxi podcast, right? Here are some shows useful for any business owner, not ride-hailing entrepreneurs solely.

How I Built This

How I Built This by Guy Raz is one of the best podcasts for business owners. Raz dives into the stories behind the world’s largest companies like Dropbox, Yelp, and Lyft. The host is a great storyteller, and his guests are extremely inspiring and insightful when it comes to disruption, creating a better future, and fostering idealism.

How Success Happens

The How Success Happens podcast, hosted by Robert Tuchman. This show features a wide range of entrepreneurial minds, with focus on productively overcoming the challenges every entrepreneur faces. Our personal favorite at Onde is the episode with Amos Tamam, the CEO of Curb Mobility.

Talking about inspiration: have you already checked Onde’s own base of inspiring cases across the world?

The $100 MBA Show

The $100 MBA Show hosted by Omar Zenhom is a classic. Each episode is a no-nonsense interview with established entrepreneurs packed with actionable advice. Just some of the topics covered by Zenhom are: common patterns in a company’s development, tackling growth pains, dealing with entrepreneurial risks, keeping your business model flexible.

The bonus feature of The $100 MBA Show is that you can submit your own question and get an answer on air.

This Week in Startups

This Week in Startups is not necessarily focused on giving business owners advice. However, this show hosted by Jason Calacanis spotlights every tiny trend in the tech industry. Fun to listen to, this podcast will keep you in the know about all the things that matter in tech, give you inspiration and actionable tips on running a technological company.

The Growth Show

The Growth Show podcast deals with a complicated issue of business growth. While starting a company seems more feasible than ever, growing a sustainable business is a different story. Surprisingly, there is a lot for us entrepreneurs to learn from social movements, philosophers, and small local business owners.

Wrapping up…

  • Listening to podcasts is a great way to stay updated about the newest trends and developments in leadership, business, investments, and more. Some of the business podcasts with the largest listeners base are:
    • TED Business focussing on leadership, latest trends in the workspace, and a whole range of other themes relevant for CEOs and business owners.
    • The Ceocast which highlights success stories of outstanding entrepreneurs of our times.
    • How I Built This featuring CEOs of world’s most famous brands and their way to success.
    • The HBR IdeaCast by Harvard Business Review working with a wide range of topics, from marketing and branding to fighting climate change as a company owner.
    • The Mind Your Business Podcast, with its more spiritual take on entrepreneurship and market success.
  • Podcasts can be useful for acquiring unique insights into the industry and learning more about other entrepreneur’s experience. Learning what other entrepreneurs do, how they go about challenges, how they view the market, and what inspires them can be very helpful, especially for those who aren’t yet a part of an active peer-community. This latter is often the case with startup founders in developing markets. Besides, entrepreneur podcasts are less time-consuming than books or conferences. Needless to say, business podcasts often revolve around strong and inspiring personalities, so there’s a motivational element to it, too.

  • The most popular podcast hosting platforms are:
    • Spotify
    • Apple Podcasts
    • SoundCloud
    • Audible
    • Springcast
    • Podbean
    • RedCircle
    There are also local podcast platforms in most countries, if you’re looking for a platform suitable for your market specifically.
    • Start by working on your podcast concept. What topics will you focus on?
    • Pick a format. Will you be the only host; will your podcast have guests; is it an interview?
    • Get the hardware and software for audio recordings and editing. Simple tools are good enough to start. You can always scale later.
    • Record your first podcast and edit it to a smooth episode.
    • Pick a logo and other branding artworks for your podcast. AI tools can help you with that.
    • Distribute your first episode via popular podcast platforms such as Spotify, SoundCloud, and Apple Podcasts.
