One of the great things about the internet is that we all get easy access to the brains, insights and workings of some very bright people.
It’s only really in the last year that I’ve discovered the beauty of the podcast. They’re bite-sized chunks of inspiration that are readily digestible.
If you want to improve your money situation I would recommend checking out a few of them.
I use the phrase “finance podcasts” loosely as some are purely about money, while others are also lifestyle related. But for me, anything that can help improve your mindset is a useful tool in improving your financial mastery.
My Default List
Side Hustle Nation. The plan isn’t to list these in any particular order. But in reality Side Hustle Nation is top of my tree.
Nick Loper’s podcast essentially interviews ordinary people like you and I and shows how they’ve been able to convert an interest or hobby into a side hustle or full-time income.
This covers all manner of fields: selling digital products on Udemy, teaching English as a foreign language in Japan, voice acting.
The list goes on. Unlike the many podcasts that allow you to hear from world-leading and well-established experts, this one shows that anyone can build income streams if they put their mind to it.
Smart Passive Income. This was the first online business podcast I ever listened to. While it’s not essentially about ‘personal finance’, it is all about how to make more money. And that’s not a bad thing.
Pat Flynn is pretty much royalty in this online income space. His podcast is chock full of experts on marketing, creating products, product design, Kickstarter campaigns and so on.
What I find particularly fascinating (and daunting) are the monthly income reports he provides. These show just how well his online business has done.
Admittedly, he has had a few years head start on most of us. The transparency may inspire some and overwhelm others.
That’s what happens when you report that you’ve made over $170,000 online for the odd month or two in 2016. Mind blowing numbers.
Conscious Millionaire. J V Crum III is a bit of an endearingly positive character and has an amazing pedigree.
In the past two years alone, he has hosted or been a guest on over 800 podcasts and radio shows. He made his first million when he was in his early 20s and he doesn’t seem to be letting up.
He’s a big fan of the idea of ‘conscious focused action’ and that message seeps through with this podcast. So if you’re interested in personal development as well as the world of money, this is a great site for you.
The Art of Charm. It isn’t really a podcast about money. It’s a podcast about everything. As it markets itself: “You’ll learn our top strategies to improve your career, confidence, lifestyle and love-life from top experts like life and business-hackers”.
It’s sort of become my guilty pleasure of late because the podcast always seems to find interesting writers on thinkers.
It often focuses on developing the right mindset for success and for making money. Fascinating interviews and well worth a listen.
Well Kept Wallet. This is a good old-fashioned finance podcast that was started by Deacon Hayes, who paid off $52,000 in debt in just 18 months. This is a site that doesn’t overcomplicate things.
It’s simply about clearing debts, sorting out budgets and all the other good stuff.
So the podcast has episodes on getting rid of student loan debt, investing in real estate, starting a business from scratch and so on. It’s all about normal people doing sensible things with their money.
So that’s just a few of the ones I dip into.
What finance podcasts do you listen to and get inspiration from?
