As a busy entrepreneur, your time is limited and valuable, so you need to be selective in how you spend it. Podcasts are a great medium for learning about, well, almost anything—but they’re especially useful for learning about starting and leading a company.

Books take a lot of time, and you can’t multitask while reading. Videos are quick and easy, but also require a lot of focus to consume effectively. Enter podcasts.


Here are 10 best podcasts every entrepreneur must listen today,
