Nowadays, you can find a podcast on just about anything. From dating and DIY to cooking and comedy, there is a show out there for everyone. Indeed, this relatively new medium has quickly overtaken others as one of our favorite ways to learn, grow, discover, and be entertained.
As a female entrepreneur, you will find that podcasts grant you unprecedented access to the minds of some of the world’s most successful businesswomen — and men — in a format that is digestible, easy to transport, and that fits well into your already-busy life.
With access to hundreds of CEOs, entrepreneurs, influencers, and creators who are redefining how we run — and manage — our own companies, here are six podcast shows will help you transform your business idea into a long-lasting and successful venture.
When Women Win
When Women Win is the chart-topping podcast by Rana Nawas, a corporate-veteran-turned-strategic-advisor who, until recently, also headed up the Dubai chapter of Ellevate, the world’s oldest businesswomen’s network. Nawas knows a thing or two about what it takes to success as a woman in business, as do her guests, who share invaluable stories and practical advice on her show.
Her list of impressive interviewees includes the likes of CNN anchor and correspondent Hala Gorani; Michelle Peluso, the Chief Marketing Officer of IBM; Helen McGuire, the Co-Founder and MD of Hopscotch; and Mona Ataya, founder of Mumzworld.
Hosted by Jaclyn Johnson, the founder and CEO of Create and Cultivate, Work Party chronicles the ups and downs of her career, as well as how she achieved her success.

Their straightforward, honest advice not only offers new ways of thinking but also hope that, with enough persistence, anything is possible.
