If you are in the process of growing an online business, maybe you have a blog that you are writing content for, or maybe you sell products and services online, then you know how important it is to stay focused and motivated on the things you are working on.
It’s also equally important to learn how to do “all the things” needed for growing that business.

Now on to the best podcasts to listen to for helping you grow your online business and keeping you motivated and inspired
The Marie Forleo Podcast
Oh Marie! Marie, Marie, Marie … how I love to listen to the….
Sorry, really bad, I know! But I love this lady so much. I learned about her from a very dear friend about a year ago. She told me I had to check her out and that I would love her, and, she was right!
Marie Forleo produces a weekly show called MarieTV which she also turns into a top podcast. Each show is jam-packed full of the very best tips and tricks you need to grow a business, handle stress, deal with challenges and on and on and on.
Marie is adorable and has a fun, quirky personality that pulls you in and makes you feel right at home.
Marie knows her stuff! I can tell you that her podcasts and Marie TV episodes have helped me in so many ways when it comes to growing a business. She is truly inspiring, and I have no doubt that she will help you on your blogging and business journey as well.
This podcast is truly one of the very best podcasts you can listen to for help with growing your business, marketing tips and inspiration.
Inspire Nation with Michael Sandler
Do you sometimes feel yourself sinking into a funk?
It’s no fun. Sometimes life can be overwhelming with all that needs to be done Every . Single . Day.
I often find myself searching for something to inspire the funk right out of me, and that’s exactly what Inspire Nation does for me.
When I first started listening to the podcast, I thought it may be a bit too quirky for my taste, but quickly realized that this podcast is packed full of so much goodness.
The host, Michael Sandler, likes to throw in a Woo Hoo all throughout the show, and where it may seem a bit silly, it’s actually become quite endearing to me.
Michael has an extremely positive and uplifting personality, and the podcast offers a huge variety of topics guaranteed to help you in all aspects of life.
This podcast is not as business-related as other top podcasts I’m sharing in this post, but I think keeping a positive mindset while growing an online business is just as, if not more important.
Sometimes it’s helpful to switch away from all the business learning podcasts and just listen to one that inspires you to live a great life.
I think you will love Inspire Nation and I’ve found it to be one of the best motivational podcasts around.
Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield
If you are looking to learn anything and everything related to online marketing, then this is the podcast for you.
Amy Porterfield is another one of my absolute faves, and it’s not only because she is so smart and knows what she’s doing, but also because she has the best podcast personality.
She’s the kind of person you just want to be friends with because of her down-to-earth style and kind nature.
Amy teaches you everything she knows about online marketing and growing an online business, and trust me, she knows a lot!. She really covers everything you need to know to market and grow your business online.
This is honestly one of the best podcasts to listen to if you are growing a blog or online business.
The Art of Paid Traffic with Rick Mulready
This is one of the newer podcasts I’ve discovered, but I really love it.
Rick Mulready has been featured in a few of Amy Porterfield’s podcasts which is how I discovered it.
So what is the Art of Paid Traffic all about – online paid advertising and all things related.
I started listening to the podcast because I discovered my love/hate relationship with Facebook Ads.
Have you set up Facebook Ad Campaigns yet? If not, I’d suggest spending a good bit of time learning about them before you dive right into creating them.
I think the Facebook Gods are laughing at all us little peeps trying desperately to figure it all out while tossing endless amounts of cash into their bank account.
Sorry, did that come across as bitter?
Seriously though, Facebook Ads are challenging. Before you dive in, make sure you have a good strategy in place.
And where better to start learning about what strategies you need than by listening to an Ad expert on a free podcast.
Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn
Pat Flynn is another online marketing entrepreneur that I learned about from the Amy Porterfield podcast – thanks, Amy!
Pat’s strengths lie in teaching people how to create various streams of passive income through blogging, podcasting, and email marketing.
This podcast that has so much valuable content, you won’t know where to start.
His shows feature guests that have really made a huge name for themselves in business, and they share their best tips and secrets to help you build your own successful online business.
Be sure to add this podcast to your list, you don’t want to miss it.
Thriveology with Dr. Lee Baucom
Most of the podcasts on this list have been very business oriented, but not this one.
I almost left this one off the list, but as I mentioned in my review of Inspire Nation, I feel like building a successful online business takes more than just learning about how to do “all the things.”
It also requires you to have the right mindset. It’s so easy to beat yourself up when things aren’t going right or feel like giving up when it all seems like too much.
That’s why I wanted to include the Thriveolgy podcast on this list. I have found so much helpful information in this podcast that simply helps me to lead a better life . . . which of course helps me in my business.
This podcast is all about thriving in your life, and we could all use more of that, right?
If you want a change of pace and are looking for a podcast that helps you live a better life, then this is one of the best podcasts to listen to.
So why should you be listening to podcasts?
Because they are AWESOME!
They make your life better and teach you things you never thought you’d learn. They open up your world to new ways of thinking and living.
And did I mention, THEY ARE AWESOME!
