Being a woman entrepreneur can be lonely in this traditionally male-dominated field. While the overall business knowledge is the same, the specific struggles that women entrepreneurs face is different than their male-counterparts.

Finding a mentor is a great way to get business advice but it can be hard to find someone whose advice you trust. Thankfully, living in the age of the internet removes location-specific boundaries. Many successful female entrepreneurs have started up podcasts to share their business knowledge. 

The following podcasts give the best business advice for women entrepreneurs making it easy to learn the skills you need to succeed:  

1. Goal Digger

The Goal Digger Podcast is hosted by Jenna Kutcher.  Not only does she cover ways to build your dream job from scratch, she also is an expert at growing social media. If you’re looking to expand your business using Instagram or other social media, you’ll find lots of actionable tips that work for growing these platforms.

2. ZenFounder

ZenFounder is hosted by Dr. Sherry Walling, a licensed clinical psychologist who works with her entrepreneur husband. This podcast helps entrepreneurs with the things no one talks about: being lonely and feeling stressed since it all rides on you. This is a different type of business podcast since it addresses the mental aspects of the entrepreneur’s life.  

3. Girlboss Radio

Girlboss Radio is led by Sophia Amoruso who sits down with a new trailblazing woman entrepreneur every week. During the interviews, they discuss the personal and professional issues that women face when running a business. The podcast is laid back and feels more like two women chatting over coffee rather than a formal interview which makes the episodes easy to breeze through.  

“You don’t get taken seriously by asking someone to take you seriously. You’ve got to show up and own it. If this is a man’s world, who cares? I’m still really glad to be a girl in it.” – Sophia Amoruso

4. So Money

The host Faroosh Torabi is a financial strategist who brings financial strategies, successes, and failures from some of the top business founders. While the So Money podcast doesn’t solely focus on entrepreneurship, many of the money topics covered affect both the personal and professional lives of business owners.
