The time has never been better to be a teen entrepreneur. Not only is the online world exploding with opportunity, but creative teenagers can also create impressive brick and mortar businesses. While pursuing all these opportunities, make sure your teen keeps track of the effort and counts it on his homeschool high school transcript! Part of the “coursework” for an entrepreneurial credit can include listening to podcasts and implementing the strategies. Here’s my best list of podcasts for teen entrepreneurs.
General Podcasts for Business Ideas
The Side Hustle Show – This top-rated podcast is fun to listen to and will help you think outside the box for potential business ideas! As a result, each week you’ll get actionable strategies to apply to your business.
The Smart Passion Income Podcast – This podcast will take you behind the scenes to learn from successful entrepreneurs. Again, it will give you ideas and inspiration for a possible path forward for your teen’s own business idea.
Christy Wright’s Business Boutique – This podcast features the inspiring stories of women who are making money doing what they love. In addition to getting answers to common questions about business, you’ll learn what it takes to be successful.
Side Hustle School – This daily show tells a different story of side hustlers, including what went well and what they learned along the way. Because of this, you’ll get great ideas from this podcast and be able to learn from their mistakes before starting your own business.
Marietta Stories – This podcast tells the stories of the interesting people who live in Marietta, Georgia. Now, you may be wondering how this podcast would apply to you? It’s a great example of a local podcast model that your teen could start in your town. It’s easier to get the word out in the community about a local podcast. Plus local businesses would likely want to sponsor episodes as the amount of listeners continues to grow. So if your teen has considered starting a podcast, but just wasn’t sure of what topic they would cover, then this is a great model to use. We go into more details about this type of podcast in the Podcast Launch for Teens online course!
