Podcasts have become a huge source of inspiration and motivation for me lately. I don’t always have time to read (although I’m really working on making time for it!!), and I get really car sick if I try to read in transit, but since I’m on-the-go quite a bit, I’ve started listening to podcasts. They’re also perfect to listen to when you’re getting ready in the morning or making dinner or unloading the dishwasher, etc. Just throw one on when you’d usually be listening to music.
I mostly listen to entrepreneurial podcasts, I love hearing from women who have already paved the way in the creative industry. We all have our own story, but we’re also all a lot more similar than we think. It’s so nice to know that boss babes I look up to have been in the place I am now and worked their butts off to reach their dreams.

Podcasts I’ve Listened To
Style Your Mind by Cara Alwill
The Style Your Mind podcast by Cara Alwill has been my go-to lately. I do like to switch up the podcasts I listen to, but I find I’m drawn to A LOT of the topics she talks about. The podcast is for women who want to design their thoughts, empower themselves and build a beautiful lifestyle. Hands up X 3 for me! She talks about everything from getting clear on your goals, how to handle rejection, knowing your worth and getting into a high vibration.
Don’t Keep Your Day Job by Cathy Heller
I recently listened to an episode of Cathy Heller’s Don’t Keep Your Day Job featuring Jenna Kutcher and I was instantly hooked. I’ve been following Jenna for a while and I love her brand. She talked about her journey from climbing the corporate ladder to saying goodbye to the 9-5 life and starting and growing her own successful business. I love hearing from women who are going in a similar direction as me, and the podcast is all about creative people making a living doing what they love. It’s motivation at its finest.
The Strategy Hour by Emylee and Abagail
I’ve been following the ladies from Think Creative Collective for about a year now in their Facebook group and on Instagram, and they started The Strategy Hour podcast a few months ago. Their podcasts are always packed with amazing content for entrepreneurs, from time management tips to making money to scaling your business and persevering through tough times. Abagail and Emylee are so relatable and so much fun to listen to, and they often have guests on speaking about awesome topics, too!
Being Boss by Kathleen Shannon and Emily Thompson
To be completely honest, I tried a few of the Being Boss episodes and just couldn’t get into them, but SO many people have told me how much they love this podcast so I thought I should include it anyway. They’re always featuring other boss babes and creatives to offer different view points. A lot of the topics do resonate with me and I’m sure a lot of other entrepreneurs will find them really insightful. Think: Dealing with burnout, digital detox and productivity, and how to get unstuck and do the work! Reading these titles, maybe I’ll give it another shot!
Podcasts on My “To Listen To” List
One Part by Jessica Murnane
This podcast sounds incredible and right up my alley! Jessica interviews women from all different backgrounds including wellness, fashion, food, music and design. She offers a unique perspective, asking thought-provoking questions and making profound observations. I love how she’s taking viewpoints and creating conversations with various minds. I’m so excited to add her podcast to my rotation.
The Goal Digger Podcast by Jenna Kutcher
Seeing as I loved her so much on the Don’t Keep Your Day Job podcast, I can’t wait to start listening to Jenna Kutcher’s very own Goal Digger podcast. It’s a live-workshop style business podcast for creative girl bosses to help us reach our goals and learn from the best in the industry. Looking through, the titles, “5 Ways to Reset When You’re in a Funk” and “The One Writing Exercise That Can Change Your Biz” are first on my list!
The Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast by Lauryn Evarts and Michael Bosstick
I recently found this podcast while I was doing some searching online and I love the range of topics it covers and all the guests they have on from different backgrounds. The podcast is all about getting real and covers issues including good stress vs. bad stress, youthful glowing skin and preventative beauty, scheduling time for yourself, and building an empire.
