If you’re an avid multi-tasker like me, you probably see a real value in podcasts.
You can digest valuable information for your business while walking the dog, commuting to a client meeting, or even while working at your desk.
And yes, there are lots of excellent podcasts for entrepreneurs out there, but today, I wanted to put together a list of some up and comers in the world of podcasting aimed at the one-person shows of the world: The solopreneur.
With a variety of different run times and subject matter covered, these podcasts for solopreneurs are the perfect way for you to expand your business mind on the go.
Jake Jorgovan’s podcast (formerly known as the Creative Freelancer Show) is dedicated to interviewing past and present solopreneurs who are all about living a non-traditional lifestyle. Jake asks questions about how his guests found their path and discusses his own interesting story (which includes one about his year spent traveling working remotely from 13 different countries.)

Jill Salzman and Brad Farris come together for a high-energy podcast that helps solopreneurs tackle tough questions. In each episode, they speak with a small business owner who needs advice on everything from hiring to pricing.

Much more informal in nature, this podcast for solopreneurs is a nice way to break up your day–and break down your business.
