What are these podcasts you speak of?
If you don't yet listen to podcasts, it's time to start downloading. Podcasts are a great way to learn about whatever topics you may be interested in. The best part is that you can listen to them while driving, at the gym, or relaxing at your home. I started listening to podcasts while I exercise because I can knock out two birds with one stone. I can get in a run and learn at the same time.
Podcasts have taught me so much about internet marketing, business strategy, marketing, and sales. I also listen to podcasts for motivation, inspiration, knowledge, and humor.

From Scratch is my favorite podcast that interviews entrepreneurs. Jessica Harris is a seasoned professional in radio and lands interviews with prominent entrepreneurs. Some of her past guests include the founders of Etsy.com, Patagonia, North Face, and Burton Snowboards. Her podcasts are between 18-35 minutes long and are recorded twice per month. Each interviewee shares their stories on how they started up and have become the company they are today.
If you are interested in learning how to make money online, how to blog, or how to increase website traffic, Pat Flynn's free podcasts are going to help you out so much. Pat is a great guy who has been very successful online. He shares his knowledge with others via his podcasts which are an average of 30 minutes long. Pat records about two podcasts per month. Pat is a fellow blogger at SmartPassiveIncome.com. He even has a Think Entrepreneurship T-shirt!
Scott Smith is the Chief Motivating Officer and founder of MotivationtoMove.com. The Daily Boost Podcast is free and is recorded two to three times per month. They also have a subscription based member section on their site in case you are interested in listening to a new podcast every day. The Daily Boost is 9 minutes long and talks about stress, making money, communication skills, happiness, family, and relationships. It is full of motivation and inspiration for any entrepreneur.
Brothers Jeff and Rich Sloan are enthusiastic entrepreneurs who love to share their passion with others. Their podcasts are typically between 15 to 25 minutes and are recorded once or twice a month. The podcasts share information about startups and established companies. Many of the podcasts are interviews with successful entrepreneurs. I love this podcast. Their website is www.startupnation.com
The Struggling Entrepreneur has great advice for Entrepreneurs through our many ups and downs.
