Being Boss with Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon

Being Boss is not about following a cookie-cutter formula for success or dwelling on the imperfections encountered along the way. It’s about you choosing to face the real-life experiences that come with building a business with honesty and grit. It’s about showing up as you are and doing the work and trusting that – boss – you’ve got this.

Being Boss is a podcast for creative entrepreneurs, freelancers, and side-hustlers. Female entrepreneurs join Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon as they dig into the mindset, habits, routines, and boundaries that help you make money doing what you love.

Creative Empire with Reina Pomeroy and Christina Scalera

Each week, Reina and Cristina bring you up close with the influencers you dream of meeting at conferences and workshops, but maybe don’t have a budget to attend yet. Sprinkled in between these are teaching episodes, and mentoring that walks show listeners through common problems with solutions during their early days of business.

Full disclosure: this podcast is no longer in production. (After 250 episodes, Reina and Christina turned their focus elsewhere.) But that doesn’t detract from the quality of the content they’ve already released! I think it’s a huge misconception that podcasts have to run into infinity and beyond, and Creative Empire is a great example of an asset that continues to educate new audiences and build both Reina and Christina’s authority in the biz.

Everything is Teachable with Melissa Guller

Ok ok, this is a shameless plug for my own podcast. (But I really think you’ll like it!)

How do normal people become online superstars? Or better yet, what does it really look like to earn a modest (but sustainable) full-time living sharing your knowledge?

In “Everything is Teachable,” join host Melissa Guller (HI) as we take you behind-the-scenes to learn how everyday creators have transformed their skills and passions into online businesses.

Each episode focuses on one creator’s personal story and their unique ways they’ve transformed their skills – like cake decorating, graphic design, music, or coding – into profitable online businesses. Each story is unique, proving that there’s no one right way to build a business.

(This podcast is presented by Teachable, where our mission is to empower creators to transform their knowledge into income. To date, we’ve helped over 60,000 creators build and sell online courses that have been shared with almost 20 million students…and we’re just getting started.)
