Here’s a list of 5 podcasts for the design entrepreneurs. Podcasting is so popular and I’m seeing a trend that niche topic podcasts are popping up here and there. What’s fun is that there is now basically a podcast for every possible industry, hobby, and topic.
Learn something every day
I listen to podcasts every day. It’s an important part of my daily learning process, so I make sure I listen to at least one episode every day. Furthermore, having the mindset of learning something new every day is a key component in growing as an entrepreneur. So every day I spend at least 1 hours in learning new things, getting inspiration and listening to the industry leaders talking about how they have gained success.
Here’s a list of my top 5 podcasts for the design industry
- A Well-Designed Business by Luann Nigara. This podcast is my favorite and I listen to Luann talk with industry leaders, interior designers, and business owners within our industry many times a week. Luann and her guests share the business skills you need to master in order to build a successful interior design business.
- Build My Online Store. I recently found this podcast where the host, Terry Lin, who runs a store called Baller Wallets and an e-commerce digital marketing agency that helps online stores with email and content marketing, talks about all things e-commerce.
- The Chaise Lounge. The podcast host Nick May interviews successful interior designers from around the world to find out how they have grown their successful interior design business. They talk marketing, client management, staff management, and all the little things that go into creating a great design business.
- Online Marketing Made Easy by Amy Porterfield. This is not specifically for us design entrepreneurs but I love listening to Amy discuss online marketing with her guests. Amy is one of the leading Social Media Marketing profiles and she continuously feeds her listeners with new, exciting knowledge.
- Design Between the Lines. This is a design and home furnishings podcast by the American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD). The host John Conrad interviews designers and furniture makers and vets their experience in the industry and how they have made an impact.
Learning by implementation
The key to all progress is to implement new things and learnings. While it’s important to avoid the shiny object syndrome, as business owners, we need to test new tactics every day. So, create a habit of learning something new every day and implementing the things that make sense for your business.
