So often we get bogged down in our day to day and don’t take the proper time to grow and develop in our professional or personal lives, and that can be even harder for business owners who already have limited time for themselves. Podcasts are a great way to get that dose of inspiration, advice, and storytelling we need to continue learning and growing in a condensed amount of time while doing other things – like walking the dog, updating spreadsheets, or during a commute.
If you’re looking for a podcast to listen to, whether you’ve never listened to one before or are an old pro, we have one we love: The Growth Lab Show by LOCALiQ. (We might be a little biased.)
The Growth Lab Show is a weekly podcast featuring the greatest minds in business with actionable insights to help business owners grow and thrive. Nine episodes in, and The Growth Lab Show has covered topics from time management, creating content that connects with your audience, and embracing your differences in yourself and your business.
Need more? Here are three reasons to listen to The Growth Lab Show.
1. Hear Directly from the Experts
You don’t often get to pick the brains of the greatest minds in business and hear how they became successful and what tips they have for you. But on The Growth Lab Show, you get just that. The Growth Lab Show hosts talk to their guests about how they got their start, how they came up with their business idea, and how they became successful.
One guest, Peter Shankman, talked about how he funded his first business after selling Titanic-themed T-shirts in Times Square. Seems crazy, right? These interesting stories are sure to give you a healthy dose of inspiration!
2. A Range of Business-Specific Topics
Although we’re all about marketing here, we know that business owners have a lot more to consider, so The Growth Lab Show covers a variety of topics. So, you can be sure that you’ll have a well-rounded listening experience that speaks to time management, engaging with your audience in a variety of ways, using technology in your business, and much more.
3. Actionable Tips You can Put into Practice Right Away
One thing the hosts of The Growth Lab Show noticed with other business podcasts was the lack of actionable tips – so, they created Lab Notes: a free, downloadable PDF that accompanies each episode so you can put what you just heard into action. For example, the Lab Notes for Jess Tyson’s about Ditching the Badge of Busy gives you the tools to perform a “life audit,” so you can identify how you’re spending your time and what you can do to maximize it.
We love The Growth Lab Show and hope you’ll love it, too! Give it a listen on iTunes, The Growth Lab Show website, or wherever you get your podcasts. New episodes are released every Tuesday. Don’t forget to subscribe so you never miss one!
