It was this time last year when I first came up with the idea for this site and I feel so incredibly blessed by where it is today! While planning out the next few months and which direction I am hoping to see things go, I stumbled across one of my first articles, entitled "The 5 Best Podcasts For Every Side Hustler."
Well, what a difference a year makes, because since writing that original article, I have discovered even more inspiring and informative business/marketing podcasts that are perfect to listen to in the car, at the gym, or -- if you are like me -- while you are doing chores around the house.
Are you a blogger? You need to listen to Smart Passive Income. Do you dream of working from home in some capacity but don't know how/what? Smart Passive Income is for you. Not sure if affiliate marketing is a legit/lucrative business? SPI, yo! Pat Flynn is an online business genius who so graciously shares how he makes millions a year on the internet in this addictive and straightforward podcast. (This is actually one of my newer finds and I am SO excited to have 8+ years of material to binge listen.)
Word to the wise: When you listen to Goal Digger, have a pen and paper ready, as Jenna Kutcher always has the most valuable insight on daunting things like SEO, monetizing your site/influence, and how to use social media to grow your business. As if the content itself wasn't amazing, Jenna is straightforward, honest, and funny, which makes you feel like you aren't just listening to a podcast, but getting advice from your best friend.
Funny story: Shortly after launching this site, I received an email from someone who had a Kickstarter for a side hustle planner and was looking to promote it, which I happily did here. After following this side hustle planner guy (whose name -- interestingly enough -- is not side hustle planner guy, but Ryan) on Instagram for a few months, I discovered that he had launched not only this ingenious planner, but a podcast as well, which I have been happily listening to since. Each week, Ryan interviews an inspiring guest who turned their hustle into a full-fledged business, which leaves me feeling both more educated (because of their tips and tricks) and motivated.
