Wit & Wire with Melissa Guller

What does it take to create a successful podcast? That’s the question I’m out to answer in Wit & Wire, the podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes with successful podcasters and industry experts to learn how to start a podcast, grow your audience, and make an impact.

This is, of course, my own podcast, and I hope you find the insights valuable. Start with one of these episodes:

Strategy Hour with Abagail Pumphrey and Emylee Williams

Get actionable strategies and killer marketing tips to grow your creative business inside The Strategy Hour podcast. Say goodbye to the “side-hustle” mindset and hello to getting paid (and paid well) to do what you love. Hosts Abagail Pumphrey and Emylee Williams from Think Creative Collective share all the ins and outs of their experience growing a successful 6-figure online business. 

You’ll hear from some pretty amazing entrepreneurs like David Siteman Garland of the Rise to the Top, Nathan Barry of ConvertKit, Natalie Franke of the Rising Tide Society, and Ankur Nagpal of Teachable. These in-depth interviews go straight to the meat and potatoes (a.k.a. actionable steps you can take away and use in your business today). Episodes cover a wide range of topics, including growing an online audience, email automation, diversifying your products and offers, generating more sales online, social media, outsourcing, affiliate marketing, productivity, systems, and how to treat your passion like the real business it is. It’s time to become a total creative BOSS!

Do you want to figure out your greatest passion, your purpose, and how to turn that into a profitable, thriving full-time career? Each week, host Cathy Heller has honest conversations with successful creative entrepreneurs about the hands-on, practical steps to make a living doing what lights you up, and build a life that you can’t wait to wake up to every single day.

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.
