A guide for Entrepreneurs to learn from podcasts

Entrepreneurs to Learn from Podcasts

In today’s blog, we bring ten podcasts that will make you a better entrepreneur and help you decode the labyrinth of entrepreneurship.

Benefits of listening to podcasts

  • Activates the mesolimbic or reward pathway, releasing dopamine and making the listener feel good.
  • Enhances Imagination

As the listener does not have a visual stimulus, they must get creative and use their mental imagery.
A study shows that people who regularly listen to podcasts have a more vivid imagination.

  • Builds active listening

Podcasts develop active listening over time.
Tip- If you want to develop your active listening skills and are new to the podcast world, start with listening to the topics that interest you the most and light up your chain of thought. With time you can shift to more complex topics as your active listening abilities develop with time.

  • Multi-tasking

You can use podcasts like music and listen to them at your convenience. They will help you constantly learn while doing other tasks like washing the dishes or doing the laundry! You do not have to worry about sitting in one place with this medium.
