The “mobile university”.
A content channel that is becoming an increasingly effective source of information on most any topic.
Convenience, maybe. Improved quality of podcasting apps? Better content?
…here’s a thought.
Learning the nuances of startup marketing. Listening to the success and horror stories of famous entrepreneurs. All over a cup of coffee, or morning commute… Why not?!
The following is a list of the best podcasts for entrepreneurs, business leaders, marketers and strategists.
When you decide to tune in, is ultimately up to you. But I’m in favour of the early podcast/coffee combination.
