10 Noteworthy Podcasts For Entrepreneurs From 2014
Podcasts are and have always been one of the most effective marketing and learning tools for most entrepreneurs especially for all of us here at The Entrepreneurs Library. Since it is virtually impossible to meet with great people with even greater ideas in person or attend every single conference, it makes sense that busy entrepreneurs listen to some great podcasts to learn new ideas and to keep pace with the latest developments in the world of entrepreneurship.
The way I see it, podcasts bring fresh, innovative ideas to the table conveniently without leaving the comfort of the home or office. Podcasts are simple and convenient; all you have to do is to plug in your earphones or connect your smartphone with your car and there you go. Free golden nuggets of innovation, tips, and advice start pouring in.
