Podcasts have become one of my favorite ways to consume information. With a busy schedule, I listen to them on the go, while I'm doing chores around the house, and while I work.
As an influencer and entrepreneur, I am always on the hunt for new resources that will help me to increase my knowledge of the industry, strengthen my storytelling, and monetize my brand.
Here are some of my current top picks.
This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts and one I look forward to each week. Majesty features some amazing creators of color to facilitate discussions on all things influencer marketing. I've found each episode to be informational and inspiring, and has challenged me to question how I am making the most impact out of my influence. It's a new podcast, so it will make binging episodes fairly easy.
Looking to master the art of side-hustling, I discovered this podcast. I've found tons of gems here as Nicaila has highlighted black female entrepreneurs who have turned their side hustles into profitable businesses. As a woman of color, I have connected with the numerous stories of adversity and hardship, but have been inspired by the bravery and perseverance of these women who are now living lives of purpose and profit.
The world of influencing and content creation can sometimes get heavy and overwhelming. When I'm looking to bring the lightheartedness and fun back into the mix, I reach for this podcast. I've followed Emma and Maddy on social media for some time now, and they each bring fun and playfulness into content creation. Their podcast does the same. Emma and Maddy share their tips and tricks for navigating the influencer space and helping listeners discover and grow their own brands.
