1. Internet Business Mastery

2. Build Your Tribe

I just started listening to this podcast but I’m really liking the host, Chalene Johnson’s, energy and knowledge. She was big in the fitness industry in the past and now she is a coach teaching those looking to grow their online business. Her episode on how to be comfortable on camera and others were helpful and interesting.

Author’s Description:

Interviews and practical strategies from top internet influencers on how to build your email list, create a virtual community, strengthen a tribe and bring a powerful group of like minded people together to make a difference in the world.

3. My Wife Quit Her Job

Steve Chou is an ecommerce expert and online entrepreneur who has had recent success with an online wedding linens store. He teaches online ecommerce strategies and also interviews successful online entrepreneurs in various other niches and spaces such as Steve Scott in Kindle Publishing, Nick Loper for side hustles and various others.

Author’s Description:

The MyWifeQuitHerJob podcast hopes to dispel the common myths associated with starting an online business. Through a series of personal interviews, Steve reveals the inside stories of how successful entrepreneurs started their online businesses to improve their lifestyle without exposing themselves to a lot of risk. All of the entrepreneurs featured on the show bootstrapped their businesses from the ground up and hustled their way to the top without risking their life savings, without sacrificing their relationships by working 100 hour weeks and without needing extensive technical knowledge. Steve strongly believes that entrepreneurship should be about providing you with the freedom to do what you enjoy and spend more time with the people you love. When Steve’s wife became pregnant with their first child, he put these principles into practice by starting his own online store so his wife could quit her job and stay at home. And in just one short year, his online business made over 100K in profit to supplant his wife’s lost salary and has grown in the double and triple digits since. Today, Steve teaches others how to start profitable ecommerce stores of their own and encourages others to give entrepreneurship a chance through his blog at MyWifeQuitHerJob.com.

He has had $Millions of sales with Amazon FBA, is a very poised and confident presenter, and has a summit every year known as the Freedom Fast Lane Live which is coming up in December in Austin with speakers such as Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank, Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone and others. Ryan is killing it and looks to be moving beyond teaching the FBA stuff into other areas at this time as I think he gets that that might dry up as a viable business for the masses sooner than later.

10. Solopreneur Hour

Michael O’Neal chats with successful people in various industries and is very honest and easy to listen to. The casual format is nice as he prides himself on having a more chat feel like other great podcasts by Joe Rogan and Adam Carolla. I like this format of podcast way better than the one sided lecture format or a scripted and routine pre-formatted questions format. I like the more organic style with great information and guests. I definitely recommend this show for any aspiring solopreneur/online business hopefuls.

11. Unsettle Podcast: Start a Lifestyle Business

Having started 8 successful businesses, including the highly successful Copyblogger, Brian now interviews different guests on various topics targeted to those who are unemployable and are able to get a job, but don’t want to take one. The subjects are sort of random with some podcasts being interview style with guests and others where Brian talks about a subject by himself for the entire episode. It’s well done and promises to grow into a better and better resource for the unemployable and solopreneur types.

14. The Suitcase Entrepreneur

Natalie Sisson has created a great podcast focusing on creating a lifestyle/freedom/work from anywhere/digital nomad type of business. I know there are a lot of people out there looking to live this lifestyle and she is really living it. She does so by teaching others how to do so, so there is that kind of circular model going on, but more power to her. She provides great information and I found her book, The Suitcase Entrepreneur, incredibly informative with a ton of information on running a lifestyle business, traveling while doing so with tons of websites, resources and information to do so in the book. Definitely a great resource and included in the Kindle Unlimited program if you have that membership so you can read it as a part of your membership.

16. Side Hustle Show

Nick Loper focuses on the Side Hustle with this podcast. I think the side hustle idea is a great way for any employee looking to escape to begin the process and dip their toe into escaping. Starting a side hustle and beginning the journey is a great, non sabotaging way to transition into running an online/lifestyle design business. Nick teaches you how with episodes such as The 5 step system to quit your job in the next 12 months, the path to passive income on Udemy, and building multiple income streams with for-profit hobbies. This is a good resource to begin thinking differently out of the employee mindset.
