8 ALTERNATIVE & NICHE PODCASTS FOR CREATIVES AND SELF CARE CURIOUS ENTREPRENEURS
I am a huge podcast fan. In fact I can binge on these podcasts as much as I can Netflix. The thing that I love most about podcasts is that I can listen to them almost anywhere, I always have one on while I am walking my dog, driving anywhere, or getting creative in my art room.
They are a super efficient way of consuming lots of info, I especially like ones that aim to ed-utain (education and entertain)! They allow you to be a multi-tasking ninja, you learn about new topics while doing the housework, you can listen in to your business idol's newest venture while at the gym - perfect for busy biz girls like us who are juggling a 9-5, a side hustle and running the home.
Over the last few months I have filled my iTunes with many awesome, inspiring and entertaining podcasts that I subscribe to and thought I'd share some of the best, most relevant and maybe lesser known - but totally should be well known - ones here.

Are YOU listening to an awesome podcast that I might be missing out on!? Tell me your faves in the comments.
You're so busy in your biz being the multi-passionate, multi-tasking, all singing, all dancing, creative that self care has dropped off your to do list completely.
Burnout, loss of productivity, anxiety, impostor syndrome, negative self talk, comparison paralysis....welcome to the side effects of neglected self care that will impact bigtime on you and the success of your business.
You’re a 9-5 superhuman, a side-hustling creative, who loves helping others, putting your big brave ideas out there into the world.
YOU’RE ON THE PATH TO ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS.
BUT. You live with your laptop (literally). Moving it from office, to kitchen, dining table and even to bed as you work. You’re exhausted, overwhelmed, juggling 100's of ideas, comparing yourself to other biz owners and wondering when you’re gonna 'get it together' and become the business-savvy woman you were born to be.
Truth is, you ARE your business.
Your self care is the lifeblood of your business.
AND YET YOU ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR TO DO LIST.
YOU’RE ACTUALLY ON THE PATH TO ENTREPRENEURIAL BURNOUT.
I GET IT.
I get that you are delaying prioritizing YOU until your business is ready for you to take a break. This is the paradox of success. Your business will never be ready for you to take a break if you aren't prioritizing YOU.
I was just like you. I know the struggle is real. I also know the solution is simple. The solution is self care. Not the airy-fairy cringeworthy kind. But real actionable self care strategies that will support you and the success of your business, to maximize your energy, minimize your overwhelm, master your martyr mindset and maintain focus.
I need to tell you that your grit-fueled, 'I’m too busy' mindset, is leading to and is repsponsible for your counterproductive practices.
