Business podcasts never fail to get me feeling motivated. I listen to them at my day job, while driving between Manchester and Morecambe (my two homes), even at the gym. They give me that little glimmer of hope that close vicinity to knowledge will make me more knowledgable. Unfortunately that’s not a thing, you can’t acquire practical knowledge by simply listening to small business podcasts. You can, however, motivate yourself to get going and get some really useful tips to avoid making the same mistakes others have already made. So here are my top 10 podcasts:
 
1. Conversations of Inspiration

I hope you find this list useful, some of these podcasts have got me through some tricky times when I've seriously considered giving up on my business. There are a bunch of other podcasts, YouTube channels and books I go to for motivation but I thought I’d stick to 10 for now. I’d love to hear any of your suggestions for other podcasts to listen to as I’m always on the lookout for new ones to follow- which are your favourites?
