15 Business Podcasts For Lifestyle Entrepreneurs That Will Rock Your Day

BY Navid Moazzez

Over the last couple of weeks (and months) I've been listening to a lot of different podcasts, both to learn from and get inspiration for my own interviews and my up and coming show, which is (hopefully) launching later this year in iTunes, entitled The Lifestyle Architects Show” .

I love listening to podcasts when I go for a run, walk, at the gym or when I commute to work and school every day. Nowadays we have a lot of downtime, so even if you consider yourself too ‘busy' (seriously who isn't?) and don't think you have time, you should really re-consider and start listening to podcasts.

We are much better off if we skip the news or shows on TV and listen to some great podcasts instead. Podcasts are free, and provide such an efficient and powerful way to learn and get your daily dose of inspiration. It has definitely affected my life in a very profound way, now I can't live without my favorite podcasts, and love to start my day off by listening to a few podcast episodes on my daily morning run in the park!

There's many apps for listening to podcasts, and my favorite app is the free “Podcasts”  by Apple. Be sure to download the app now, and subscribe to your favorite podcasts!

This article is inspired by an old post by Pat Flynn on the 4 top business blogging podcasts and a post by Caleb Wojcik on the Top 10 Audio Podcasts For Online Entrepreneurs (that's where I got the idea of creating an image with all the iTunes artworks, so thank you, Caleb!).

My top 15 business podcasts listed below are in no particular order, all of them are great!

My Top 15 Business Podcasts For Lifestyle Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneur On Fire

Top Business Podcasts For Lifestyle Entrepreneurs John Lee DumasEntrepreneur On Fire is an awesome daily podcast, seven days a week, hosted by John Lee Dumas. John interviews today's most inspiring and successful entrepreneurs and shares their journey with us. He launched the podcast September 2012 and it's now ranked as one of the top business podcasts in iTunes.

The interviews are really inspiring and I always find them extremely valuable, jam packed with useful information. John is great interviewer as well which makes it even easier to listen to. He has interviewed guests like Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Pat Flynn and many more. If you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to do so! Subscribe Here.

I recently joined John's awesome mastermind, Fire Nation Elite, and it has grown into an absolutely amazing community. I couldn't be happier to be part of it, and interact with John and many other very successful or aspiring entrepreneurs on a daily basis.

There are currently over 300 episodes, so for obvious reasons it's very difficult to choose, but here's a few:

Smart Passive Income

Top Business Podcasts Pat FlynnPat Flynn is everywhere, and he's the man behind the Smart Passive Income Podcast. Very few people I've come across online are as transparent and open as Pat, and he shares everything on his blog and podcast, and even post monthly income reports so people can see how much he makes.

Each time I read one of his blog posts or listen to a podcast episode, I always learn new things and get inspiration.

Over 2,500,000 downloads and 1000 5 star reviews in iTunes can't be wrong. Go and listen to Pat's podcast now!  Subscribe Here.

The first interview I ever did was with Pat Flynn, so I owe him a lot for giving me this amazing opportunity early on. That's also one of the reasons why I want to start my own podcast soon as well. Thanks a lot Pat!

Favorite Episodes:

Internet Business Mastery

Top Business Podcasts Internet Business MasteryThe Internet Business Mastery podcast, by Jeremy and Jason has been around for a very long time and is one of the first podcasts I started to listen to, and they are still one of my top business podcasts I always go back to.

This podcasts is in particular great when you are just starting out since their focus is on beginners and talk a lot about the mindset and get paid to live on purpose, but you can still find very useful information if you are more advanced on building a lifestyle business and much more.

Successful entrepreneurs like Pat Flynn, Maren Kate and many others started out with Internet Business Mastery, so you can't go wrong with it!

I've already mentioned before that I'm a member of Internet Business Mastery Academy, and if you can't afford to join their awesome training program, the podcast is where I would way to start right now. Subscribe Here.

Favorite Episodes:

The Rise To The Top

Top Business Podcasts The Rise To The TopDavid Siteman Garland is the host of The Rise To The Top where he is helping ‘Mediapreneurs' (you have a web show, blog, podcast, video blog or some combination) generate big time revenue through online products and programs.

David is all about providing massive value for his audience, and he usually over delivers. I love his energy, and you'll definitely not get bored when watching one of his episodes. He interviews top mediapreneurs and also do solo episodes from time to time, which are all filled with actionable information and advice you can go out and inplement in your business right away.

I tend to watch the episodes on his website, but from time to time I listen to it on the go in iTunes. Subscribe Here.

I have so many favorite episodes from The Rise To The Top, but here's three of them:

The New Business Podcast

Top Business Podcasts New Business Podcast Chris Ducker

I have listened to almost every episode of Chris Duckers's The New Business Podcast since it launched earlier this year. Chris not only shares his own experiences with us, but he usually also brings on the best guests experts out there to add more value to the show.

I especially like the episodes on personal branding, since that's where my focus is right now for my business.

I will also turn to Chris and his awesome Virtual Staff Finder when I need to hire a part-time or a full-time virtual assistant. I don' know anyone better than Chris when it comes to outsourcing to the Philippines.

If you want to take your business to the next level in the new economy, be sure to listen Chris' podcast. Subscribe Here.

Favorite Episodes:

The School Of Greatness

Top Business Podcasts The School of Greatness Lewis Howes Lewis Howes is an author, lifestyle entrepreneur, former pro athlete and world record holder in football. Every time I watch a video or read anything from Lewis, I feel energized and inspired to take massive action. His podcast The School of Greatness is no exception, and my iPhone is always loaded with the latest episodes.

The School of Greatness is different from other business podcasts out there, because not only does Lewis share inspiring stories from successful entrepreneurs, but he also invites world class athletes and other influential people to his show.

The ultimate goal is to help you find out what makes great people great, but in my opinion the show is so much more than that. Check out this podcast, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do! Subscribe Here.

I really hope to be able to interview Lewis Howes soon for my own show, it would be absolutely awesome!

Favorite Episodes:


Top Business Podcasts Mixergy Mixergy needs no introduction! Andrew Warner is the host of the extremely successful and now famous show Mixergy. Andrew was also the first who started an interview style business webshow.

He has currently done over 900 episodes with the most successful entrepreneurs out there (people like Tim Ferriss, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Seth Godin and many more). Since Mixergy is an interview based webshow and done mostly with video, I usually prefer to watch his interviews on the Mixergy blog instead of iTunes. Subscribe Here.

Favorite Episodes (there are currently over 900 episodes, so it was not easy to pick just three out all of them!):

Fizzle Show

Top Business Podcasts Fizzle Show The Fizzle Show is a relatively new podcast by the great guys over at Think Traffic.

It has quickly become one of my favorites and it's very fun and inspiring to listen to and of course you also learn a lot from the awesome hosts Corbett Barr, Chase Reeves and Caleb Wojcik. Subscribe Here.

Not only do they have this podcast but also one of the most honest and best business training programs and communities out there, called Fizzle. If you haven't joined yet, I believe you can still become a member for 1 dollar for the first month to try it out and see if it's for you (I'm not even an affiliate, I just love their stuff!).

Favorite Episodes:

This Is Your Life

Top Business Podcasts This Is Your LifeI recently discovered This is Your Life which is a podcast by bestselling author, blogger and speaker Michael Hyatt.

This Is Your Life is a weekly podcast dedicated to intentional leadership. Michaels goal with the podcast is to help you live with more passion, work with greater focus, and lead with extraordinary influence. All I can say is that it has quickly become one of my go-to podcasts I listen to when a new episode comes out. Subscribe Here.

I liked his podcast so much, that I even read Michael's best selling book, Platform and joined Platform University. And as many of you may have noticed, I changed the look of my site. I'm actually using the Get Noticed Theme, which is the theme Michael Hyatt created and uses on his own site.

Favorite Episodes:

Online Marketing Made Easy

Top Business Podcasts Amy Porterfield Everything Amy Porterfield does is amazing and she always provides so much valuable information.

I recently came across Amy's podcast Online Marketing Made Easy, and I already learned more than I could ever have imagined about how to use social media, and specifically Facebook marketing strategies that really works. Subscribe Here.

I still need to put some of the things I learned into action, but I've seen many others that have had massive success after Amy's advice or going through one of her awesome online courses or webinars. Her podcast and free webinars are of better value than most courses or training programs that you would normally pay 100's of dollars for, so I wouldn't mind getting one of her courses on Facebook marketing soon (I just need to find some time for everything)!

Favorite Episodes:

Tropical MBA

Top Business Podcasts Tropical MBA Podcast One of the first podcasts I started listening to last year on my way to work every day was The Lifestyle Business Podcast by Dan and Ian.

They recently decided to move all their efforts over to The Tropical MBA Podcast instead which is just as good. It's a podcast packed with valuable information about entrepreneurship, travel and lifestyle, and the hosts, Dan and Ian really speaks from their own experiences and share very inspiring stories.

Essentially The Tropical MBA Podcast aims to show you the inside story of the people who are building lifestyle businesses while they travel the world. Seriously, who isn't interested in that? Tune in now!

Favorite Episodes:

Eventual Millionaire

Top Business Podcasts Eventual Millionaire Jaime Tardy has interviewed over 100 millionaires for her show the Eventual Millionaire, to learn how they built their businesses.

I've heard that Jaime is currently working on a book, where she is going to share everything she has learned from all her millionaire interviews. I'm really looking forward to it! Her interviews are always filled with great information and it's really inspiring to listen to real self-made millionaires share their story on her show. I've definitely learned a lot so far from her show!

Eventual Millionaire is actually a webshow with video interviews on her site and in iTunes. Jaime also had an audio only version in iTunes before, but I didn't find it last time I checked. Her awesome millionaire interviews can still be watched in iTunes though. Subscribe Here.

Favorite Episodes:

Good Life Project

Top Business PodcastsGood Life Project by Jonathan Fields is amazing, and I don't know why I didn't discover it sooner. He interviews world-class entrepreneurs, artists and many more successful and inspiring people.

The style is a bit different than most shows I've come across, because Jonathan actually sits down with the guest in a relaxed living room setting and interviews them. Each episodes explores the journey of a single guest, and it's always very inspiring to watch or listen to.

The quality of the videos are of the highest standard, and I actually prefer to watch the interviews on his website, but when I'm on the go I'll listen to the audio version of it on my iPhone which is almost just as good. Subscribe Here.

Favorite Episodes:

The Suitcase Entrepreneur

Top Business Podcasts For Lifestyle Entrepreneurs The Suitcase Entrepreneur Natalie Sisson is the host of The Suitcase Entrepreneur Podcast, and after reading her awesome blog for a while, I added the podcast to my list as well.

If you want to learn how to create a business you can run from anywhere in the world with as little a laptop and internet connection, then this is definitely a podcast for you. On her podcast, she brings on other successful and inspiring suitcase entrepreneurs showing you how to build a lifestyle business and create the type of life they have designed for themselves, filled with freedom, fun and adventure. Subscribe Here.

Natalie travels the world to many exciting places almost non-stop, and she recently launched a book called The Suitcase Entrepreneur: Create freedom in business and adventure in life. I have it on my reading list, and need to dig into it very soon. I've just heard great things about it!

Favorite Episodes:

These are my top 15 business podcasts for lifestyle entrepreneurs I listen to the most at the moment, but below are a few other shows I listen to from time to time, they are also great (I just don't have time to listen to all of them at the same time):

If you can't find a podcast you really enjoy in this post, I'm not sure if listening to podcasts is for you. This list is longer than I first intended it to be, but as I started to do research I found more and more amazing podcasts and shows out there, so I felt the urge to include add a few.

A little side note, if you are an entrepreneur or an aspiring lifestyle entrepreneur just getting started, pick one or two podcasts that you enjoy, so you don't fall into the trap of listening to too many at once and get overwhelmed. It's way better to listen to a few and actually implement some of the strategies you learn, rather than being all over the place.

I also listen to podcasts to get inspired, but I usually try to listen to episodes where I actually need the information they provide and share, so I can take massive action upon their advice.

Always remember, you can consume all the information on this planet, but if you're not an action taker, you will remain a ‘consumer' for the rest of your life. Instead, after listening to a podcast episode for example, you need to get into ‘producer' mode and take action on what you learn. That's the fastest way to success, and as Tony Robbins says and one of my favorite quotes ever:

The key to success is to take MASSIVE determined action. Click to Tweet!

Now It's Your Turn!

So there you have it! What started out as an initial “Top 15 Business Podcasts” post, turned in to a full researched article with some of the best podcasts and shows out there. It definitely took some time and effort, but it was fun going through this process and I even found a few new podcasts to listen to when I find some time.

And I hope you found some new podcasts in this post you like as well. Don't forget to subscribe to their podcast and leave a rating & review on iTunes, that way you can support their show so they can keep delivering amazing value for free.

Now it's your turn: What are some of the podcasts that YOU listen to? I’d love to know. Let me know in the comment section below this post.

    It’s so important to stay focused and motivated being an entrepreneur and podcasts are a great way to keep you on track. I use them when I can’t get into the mood of working, when I need a fresh thought or when I’m procrastinating though I know that I should get back to work.

    They always work and I love to use podcasts not only as education, but as a tool to increase my productivity.

    Thanks for sharing this huge list, I bet it has been a challenge to do all the research!

    • Hey Jan,

      Thanks so much for your awesome comment and very kind words!

      I listen to podcasts on my daily morning run, when I’m commuting, traveling, or even at home sometimes. Basically I listen to podcasts everywhere, and I love them!

      And as you mention, podcasts really help you stay focused and motivated since they are extremely valuable and usually jam packed with inspiration from the hosts and their guests.

      Again, thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts 🙂

    What made me laugh is I’ve recently met up with a lot of these people (my friends) in person or talked with them on Skype or email so I feel blessed to have them in my life.

    • Hey Natalie,

      It’s my pleasure! Your podcast (and blog) is awesome, so you definitely deserve it, keep up the good work!

      Great that you are downloading all these great shows, all of them are so valuable and provide a lot of daily inspiration.

      You have some awesome friends there, I hope to be able to meet up with all of you guys at an event next year. Hopefully I’ll come to World Domination Summit 2014, fingers crossed 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words and sharing this post everywhere, it literally made my day! I couldn’t be more thankful!

      Have a great day,

    • Thanks so much Michael, I really appreciate it! They are all awesome people and it was fun writing and researching this post as well, found some new amazing podcasts along the way as well.

      Actually I just found your podcast The Solopreneur Hour after listening to Entrepreneur On Fire earlier today, it was a really great episode. Your podcast is also really good, I enjoy it and will definitely add it to my list 🙂

      All the best,

  • Gordon Currie

    Great post with lots of great links. My favorite has to be Natalie Sisson’s The Suitcase Entrepreneur.

    • I’m about to go play frisbee with Ms. Suitcase. That’s hilarious.

      • That’s so cool Michael, it’s a small world! Have fun playing frisbee with Ms. Suitcase 🙂

    • Gordon you rock. Thank you

    • Thanks a lot Jasper, I really appreciate it!

      There’s definitely many amazing podcasts out there, and the ones on this list are just the ones I listen to the most. Listen to a few of them and let me know what you think, I think they are awesome!

      There are a handful of other great ones that I simply couldn’t i include in this post, it would have been way too long otherwise 😉

      Let me know what podcasts you enjoy the most!

      – Navid

  • Hey Navid — this list includes many of my faves as well. I know these were under the LBP brand but the rip/pivot/jam episodes and S.O.P. episode were awesome too.

    Lately I’m been digging into some old episodes of the Empire/Adsense Flippers show, and the Entrepreneur Showdown podcast has a fresh format that’s been pretty entertaining so far.

    Looking forward to the Lifestyle Architects Show!

    • Hey Nick,

      That’s great man, there’s many amazing podcasts out there, and the top 15 I included here are my favorites and the ones I come back to all the time.

      I haven’t listened to Empire/Adsense Flippers Show yet, though know they do some great stuff as well.

      I recently came across the Entrepreneur Showdown podcast, and I really like it, very fresh format and entertaining at the same time.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and you’ll be one of the first to know when the Lifestyle Architects Show launches!

      All the best,

    • Hey Nick and Navid, glad the you’ve enjoyed the Showdown so far! We are making a real push now to improve audio quality in addition to other things that we think will be great, and are excited to have you guys along for the ride.

      We love the Empire Flippers, some of the most useful content that can be implemented into your business immediately! And I cannot wait to hear the Lifestyle Architects! Let Joe and I know if you ever need anything from us!

      • Hey Dan,

        You’re welcome! Your show is very innovative and fresh, I love it!

        I will probably reach out to you guys closer to the launch and maybe I can even interview you form my show as well if you’re up for it. I just started to record my first interviews this week with Srini Rao, and next week I have Neil Patel and a few others lined up. Good times, just need to figure out all the technical stuff so I can launch it this year 🙂

        Keep it up!

        – Navid

  • Man, I’m so pumped for all of my new podcasts to listen to. Thanks!

    • Awesome Martin, go subscribe to your favorite podcasts! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  • Hi Navid

    Thanks for including me here, bud. With great company, too…

    Podcasting has revolutionized the way I build my businesses, and with all that is on offer for entrepreneurs around the world to be included in such a great group is an honor.

    Nice post, man.


    • Hi Chris,

      Your podcast is great so you deserve to be mentioned on a list like this, and I always learn a lot each time I tune in, thanks!

      Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to start my own podcast this year. I’ll invite you to my show soon for an interview 🙂

      Have a great day,

  • Hey Navid,

    I’m really glad to see you publish this and to start being a content curator in the lifestyle business space! I know you’re a continual learner and are always paying attention to what’s going on in the industry, so it’s extra cool that you’re starting to get even more attention with your posts.

    Keep up the good work and great writing!

    Best – Jesse

    • Hey Jesse,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I appreciate your kind words and I’m really excited what’s going to come next.

      This is just the beginning, and I’m also glad to see that you’re having some very interesting projects you’re working on and I hope your new virtual business bootcamp will be a huge success!

      Speak soon,

  • TJ

    Hey Navid,

    Great list amigo – I found your page via Suitcase Entrepreneur and I have bookmarked it.

    I read that you are thinking of starting a new podcast & I would certainly encourage you to do so. I started mine in March and it has been an incredible few months. YOu probably don’t watch Shark Tank in Sweden (do you?) but I would love for you to take a listen. That way if you to expand your next post top 100 podcasts I will have a shot at making the cut.

    Take care – TJ

    • Hey TJ,

      Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! Natalie shared it all over, and I get some new visitors now it seems, couldn’t be more thankful 🙂

      I’m already planning my podcast out and getting my artwork designed now. So it’s just the technical aspects I need to figure out which take the most time together with the initial interviews I need to do for the show. I’m sure I’ll figure it out!

      Actually, I knew about the Shark Tank Podcast, and I just listened to your episode with Corbett Barr, loved it!

      Top 100? Are you kidding me? Your podcast is way better than that, the only reason I can’t include more awesome shows is because I can’t make the post too long. Maybe I’ll do a part 2 at some point 😉

      I’ll subscribe to your podcast and leave you a 5 star review, keep up the good work!

      All the best,

      • TJ

        Ha-ha you do fast work! Corbett did most of the heavy lifting, but I am thrilled you enjoyed it.

        My show is definitely “under the radar” but the process had yielded some great opportunities, so get on it!

        Really glad we were able to connect Navid.

        Cheers – TJ

        • Thats great TJ! I know Corbett is an extremely great guy from Fizzle and Think Traffic, I really enjoyed the show.

          Keep in touch, and I’ll let you know how it goes with my podcast setup. At least I’ll have the iTunes artwork done soon, and also the Video bumper for the webshow for YouTube since I like to do video interviews.

          Have a great day,

  • Hi Navid,

    Oh wow! A huge list indeed! I know a few of them from their blogs and I think you really nailed it man.

    I really appreciate the time you took to drop me a message to check on this post and guessed what? I have booked most of the list above for my future reference.

    Thank you so much mate!

    • Hi Reginald,

      Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a great comment, I really appreciate it!

      The podcasts listed here are all great, so be sure to listen to a few of them and let me know what you think 🙂

      Have a great day,

  • Hi Navid,

    Great post. I subscribed to Entrepreneur On Fire a couple of weeks ago when I read about it on one of your PTS Facebook comment.

    From that podcast, I found Pat Flynn’s podcast, which I listened to several episodes on my i-pod while driving to work and now look forward to listening to several more podcasts as I’ve subscribed to many of your recommendations.

    Will be looking forward to listening to your upcoming podcast as well.

    Keep me informed.


    • Hi Guy,

      Thanks, glad that you like the post! Entrepreneur On Fire with John Lee Dumas is always on my list, very inspiring and I learn a ton from all the great entrepreneurs John interviews on his show.

      Speaking of Pat Flynn, he was the reason I even started out and the first interview I ever did was with him. I owe him a lot for giving me this great opportunity!

      Always remember to try to take action on what you learn, that way you’ll succeed faster than if you’re just in ‘consumer’ mode. We need to switch to ‘producer’ mode more often and get stuff done and take massive action!

      I’ll keep you updated when my podcast launches, stay tuned!

      All the best,

  • Hey Navid,

    Awesome post and links for us lifestyle entrepreneurs, thanks for showing people that the human spirit is still alive and helping people break free from the cogs of mediocrity and cogs of status-quo.

    You’re a champion my brother,


    • Hey Dave,

      Glad that you enjoyed the post and hope you’ll find some great podcasts to listen to as well! Thanks for stopping by my site and sharing your thoughts.

      All the best,

  • Great list! Thanks for the shout out to Mixergy

    • Hey Arie,

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and leaving a comment! Mixergy is awesome, both you and Andrew deserve it, keep it up 🙂

  • Don’t forget about “The Money Pillow Podcast!” This interview-style show hosted by Sean Malarkey ROCKS, answering the questions we all want to know like, “how much are you making right now?” and more.

    • Hey Tom,

      Yeaa how could I forget it, “The Money Pillow Podcast” is awesome as well, I listened to it a few times actually! Thanks for sharing this great podcast with us 🙂

    • Tom – I totally agree with you, Sean is a ninja, and his podcast is killer! Navid nailed it with his list for sure. There are so many quality podcasters out there right now it’s hard to keep up with their content for sure. I will be doing a full review of “The Money Pillow” podcast in the next week or so. I invite you to look for it at I believe from your comment we will have plenty in common.
      – Cheers Rick

      • Thanks for your kind words Rick, I really appreciate it! I’m really enjoying your site as well, great resource!

        Keep it up!

        – Navid

  • Zach Collins

    Awesome content, Navid! Really enjoy your posts and this one really knocks it out of the park!!

    • Thanks so much Zach, I really appreciate your encouraging and kind words! And thanks for sharing this post, good stuff!

    As always with Navid, very good stuff!! 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by Alfredo! Glad that you liked it, let me know what your favorite podcasts are once you listen to a few of them 🙂

  • Chris Larsson

    Great list of podcasts Navid! I will listen through some of them.

    Thanks for putting in all the work and writing this awesome post, I really enjoyed it!

    • Thanks Chris, I really appreciate it! Glad you enjoyed the post and podcasts I listed here 🙂

  • Alejandro Chiappe

    Hey Navid!

    Some really cool stuff going on here!
    Awesome podcasts and thanks for sharing of course!


    • Hey Alejandro,

      I’m really glad that you enjoyed this post man!

      Let me know what podcasts you like the most when you go through some of them, I’d love to know 🙂

      All the best,

  • Thanks Navid! This is a great post! I already follow most of this podcasts so I really agree with your choice! Did you hear that Tim Ferriss from Four hour workweek is starting a podcast?

    • Awesome Victor, thanks! Glad that you enjoy the podcasts I listed here, they are all great!

      Yea actually I checked out the Random Show. I watched a few episodes and it’s quite entertaining I must say 🙂

  • Navid,
    It’s fantastic to see that someone else is as passionate about podcasts as I am!

    If I would have done this post myself, the list would be almost exactly the same. It seems we have very similar tastes.

    I do however have one complaint…

    As I read your descriptions of the shows I do already listen to, I find myself totally agreeing with you. Which now leads me no choice but to now add even more podcasts to my ever growing subscribed list of shows. I blame you Navid, for providing me even more quality content, then I currently knew about. It’s all your fault, I hope you are happy, I now have two hours a week less to watch reality TV and Fox news!

    All kidding aside… great post bud! Keep up the hard work.

    By the way, those of you who do enjoy some or all of the shows mentioned above. Check out my friend Michael O’Neal who posted some links to his podcast above. His new show would be on this list if it were written 6 months from now.

    • Hey Rick,

      Thanks for your comment and support man! Podcasts are awesome, and I can’t wait to launch my own show ‘The Lifestyle Architects’ soon.

      Haha, I hope you got over that you have more really great podcasts to listen to now 😉

      Michael O’Neal’s podcast The Solopreneur Hour is awesome, have been listening to it frequently lately!

      Thanks again Rick, you rock!

      – Navid

  • Great resource man! Added a few to my list now. It is so many out there so it is hard to follow them all.

    • Thanks Gustaf, I really appreciate it! Hope you enjoy listening to the podcasts, and be sure to let me know what you think.

      There’s definitely many great podcasts out there, but decided to stick with the ones I currently listen to the most, though I know a few other ones I wanted to include but the post would have been even longer then 😉

  • Narus

    Very well done. A good businessman is able to take a lot of information and summarize, organize, and package it in an easy way for his audience to consume. Thank you so much for sharing. This is exactly what you have accomplished! Keep it coming Navid!

    • Thanks man, I really appreciate your support and kind words!

      I have some very exciting stuff coming up, stop by my site often for updates 🙂

  • Awesome post Navid! I do listen to a couple of these already but you have just beefed up my iTunes Podcast downloads! Great job.

    • Thanks Anthony, glad that you enjoyed this post! Awesome that you now have plenty of great podcasts to listen to. Let me know what you think of them as well!

  • This is a great collection of podcasts, wow. Many of them I knew, but some are completely new to me. This will get me through the winter. Thanks, Navid!

    • Awesome André, glad that you found some new podcasts to listen to! They are all great, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  • Great list!We’ve featured 6 of the 15 on our show already, and working on the rest! 🙂

    • Hey Dan,

      Thanks a lot, glad you like the list I put together here! I’ve followed your show Entrepreneur Showdown a bit recently, and I really enjoy the format and you guys are really on your way up. To feature all of them is a fantastic start, congrats!

      I’m starting to record episodes for my show next week, starting with Natalie Sisson, Scott Dinsmore and a few other inspiring and successful lifestyle entrepreneurs.

      All the best,

  • Great info Navid, thanks for sharing!

    I will definitely try them out soon to see which suits me both. There is so much “idle” time during my day, waiting, in transit etc.. that i can use much more effectively. That time is perfect to listen to podcasts for information and inspiration, and thanks to you I now know what to listen to!

    Keep up the good work! Ronald

    • Thanks Ronald, I really appreciate your support and that you like what I’m up to!

      Listen to some of the podcasts, they are all awesome! Just do it, you’ll learn so much from them 🙂

      Keep up the good work on your side as well…your fitness progress and transformation is amazing to see!

      All the best,


  • Wow, you must be listening to podcasts all day to be able to come up with such a post! 😉
    Big fan of the Lifestyle Business Podcast / TMBA podcast. I wasn’t aware of so many other related podcasts. Thanks a lot for the list!

    • Haha, I do listen do a lot of podcasts, especially during my run every morning and at the gym.

      The Lifestyle Business Podcasts/TMBA are great, and the others I listed are just awesome and full of inspiration to get you motivated.

      Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it!

      – Navid

  • Sweet list, Navid! I listen to a few mobile podcasts:

    Corona Geek
    Mobile App Chat (this is mine)
    Human Business Way by Chris Brogan

    • Thanks Steve, really glad that you enjoyed my list of podcasts.

      I listen to yours from time to time as well and Human Business Way with Chris Brogan. Both are great, and I’m always keen to learn about new things 🙂

      Keep it up and your latest guest post for Crazy Egg is really killing it, so awesome to see that!

      All the best,

  • Mikael

    Wow Navid! I love your post! I am a big fan of almost all of them so i agree with you that they will rock my day!

    • Thanks a lot Mikael, I’m glad you like my post and the podcasts I listed here! They are all awesome, and I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of them 🙂

  • Hi Navid,
    Great list! I normally tend to listen to Podcasts that discuss ecommerce or eBay, but I’m going to give some of these a try. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi George,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I’m glad you enjoy the list! Listen to a few of the podcasts here, they are great and I’m sure you’ll learn a thing or two from them 🙂

      All the best,


  • This list is perfect Navid!

    I’m almost done all the episodes from IBM so I’m ready to move on to something a little more advanced. I already have a website, products almost finished and a fan base. I’m looking more for higher conversion, more traffic and stuff like that. What do you recommend?

    As always, great round up here!

    • Thanks so much Myke!

      IBM is also one of the first podcasts I came across other than the Lifestyle Business Podcast/Tropical MBA, both great with so much valuable stuff in every single episode!

      For higher conversion, more traffic and such things, maybe you should listen to Social Triggers Insider by Derek Halpern. Other than that, the other podcasts may cover stuff like that in some episodes, I know David Siteman Garland over at the Rise to the Top talks about it quite a bit.

      Again, thanks man! It was awesome catching up today over Skype and doing the interviews 🙂

      Have a great day,

  • These are great suggestions, Navid! Thank you for taking the time to compile them and link to your favorite episodes. I look forward to catching up on many of these that are new to me. (SPI & Michael Hyatt are two of my regulars already).

    • Thanks a lot Angela, I really appreciate that you stopped by my site and left a great comment!

      I recently started to listen to Michael Hyatt’s podcast This is Your Life, and it’s really good! Of course SPI podcast by Pat Flynn is up there on the top, as always when it comes to Pat and the stuff he does!

      Let me know what you think of the other podcasts on the list, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them 🙂

      All the best,

  • Wow Navid, what a list. My goodness, I only wish I had the time to listen to any podcasts. Now a few years ago I finally broke down and bought an iPod Touch mainly for listening to audios while I walk. I did this for awhile but then August a year ago we moved my Mom next door to me so now she walks with me and trust me, she’s talking the entire time.

    I just don’t have time to listen to them now. I wish I did but thanks for this great list. I’ll be sure to pass these around because you’re not the only one that loves podcasts.


    • Hi Adrienne,

      Thanks so much, I’m glad that you enjoyed this lengthy post!

      It definitely takes some time, and I usually listen to podcasts on my daily run/walk, at the gym or when I commute somewhere in the city. That’s how I find time to do it!

      It’s definitely not easy if you have you’re mom talking the entire time of course, I completely understand what you mean haha 😉

      Thanks again Adrienne, I really appreciate all the support!

      – Navid

  • Love this post! Already listening to some of these podcasts, but now I got some to check out I’ve never heard of.

    Great insight.


    • Awesome David, thanks so much! The podcasts on the lists are great, you’ll learn a lot from them. Start with a few and then add more to your selection as you need more inspiration and knowledge about specific topics.

      Have a great day,

  • Some great recommendations here. A few of them I never heard before and just subscribed. Your blog design is coming along nice too!

    • Thanks Alex, I’m glad that you enjoy some of the podcasts I listed!

      I went for a more minimalistic design, though it still needs some work. Adding a feature box with optin and also a new clean logo up top for my name!

  • Navid, you just highlighted the secret to your success! You are tuned into the moon with these amazing podcasts that are THE single best way to get up to speed on the ways to become a highly successful entrepreneur and business professional. Thank you for this post featuring the Who’s Who of all-stars. Most I have listened to, some I sure will since they are in great company with the rest.

    Entrepreneur on Fire by John Lee Dumas is also my #1 podcast to listen to. It’s inspired and guided me over the past year with over 300 episodes. Every day a new podcast interviewing another successful entrepreneur shedding their best insights. It’s a can’t miss and I haven’t, I’ve listened to every one start to finish. What’s interesting are all the Fire Nation Elite’s from his mastermind group that have their own podcasts. The wealth continues to spread from EoFire!

    I’ve also listened to every episode of Smart Passive Income by Pat Flynn. Talk about giving away all the ways and resources to become a successful entrepreneur?! This show is THE definition of how to do it and get it done!

    So many other great ones such as IBM and Mixergy I’m a big fan of too! Amy Porterfield is very easy to listen to with great “How to” and loaded with value. I’d like to mention Learning with Leslie as another one to add to your list.

    Thanks again Navid, you just continue to crank out enormous value with your articles here. I highly recommend your Blog to any business professional seeking how to go about a lifestyle business!

    • Hey Dean,

      Wow, what an awesome comment, you are definitely a man of words! Thanks so much for contributing your great thoughts to this post. Sorry for the slight delay with the reply though 😉

      Learning with Leslie is a great one as well, I recently started to listen to a few episodes and really enjoyed it!

      Thanks again, I really appreciate your kind and encouraging words, means the world to me!

      All the best,

      – Navid

  • Awesome post Navid, I have interviewed both Pat Flynn and Andrew Warner and I’m hoping to reach out to many other folks on this list soon. How do you like being apart of John’s mastermind so far? I recently signed up for his Podcasters Paradise group.

    • Hey John,

      Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it!

      I checked out your show Voices of Marketing, and I really enjoy it! You are on to something and you have many great guests on your show so far, just keep it up 🙂

      John’s mastermind FireNationElite has been awesome so far. I’m part of many communities and programs online, but if I could only choose one right now, it would probably be FireNationElite because of the mutual support we give each other every day in the very active Facebook group. I haven’t seen anything like it before to be honest.

      And thanks for inviting me to your show, I’m really excited to be part of it!

      All the best,

  • Another great post from Navid. You are killing it, man! So awesome to watch you do so much, so quickly. Very inspiring, and definitely living up to your name of lifestyle architect. Fun to watch you creating your empire 😉

    • Thanks so much Andres, I really appreciate your awesome support and kind words!

      You inspire me a lot daily inside of Fire Nation Elite as well, you’re a big action taker and I love that! And thanks for recommending your designer to me, I’ll definitely get int touch with her in the near future for some projects 🙂

  • Great list Navid! A ton of my favorites too. Keep up the epic blog posts man.

    • Awesome Steve, glad you like my list of podcasts! I’ll do my best to keep it up, have some really exciting things coming up!

  • Siamak

    The list was like gold !
    By looking the picture and seeing #AmyPorterfield and #LewisHowes on the list I was completely sure to subscribe all the podcast to give them all a try!
    After only a week of listen & test I am here to thank your for such a meaningful selection.

    Waiting for your podcast to hear more about you!

    • Hi Siamak,

      Glad that you enjoyed the list, I really appreciate it!

      Amy Porterfield and Lewis Howes are both awesome, and their podcasts are great, I listen to them as much as I can and have time for. Let me know what you think of the other podcasts, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts here!

      All the best,

  • Hi Navid,

    I’m a big fan of Pat Flynn’s podcasts as well. One I did not know about however is Eventual Millionaire. Thanks for introducing me to Jaime Tardy’s podcast. I’ve heard of most of the other ones including the Fizzle show. I like their blog, Think Traffic, but don’t really listen much to the show. I’ll have to get it on my iPod.


  • Hi Mark,

    Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a comment!

    Pat Flynn is awesome and I learned a lot from him so far along my journey. All the other shows are also great, and definitely give Eventual Millionaire a go together with the Fizzle Show, you’ll enjoy them I think.

    Have a great day,


  • Navid,

    I have never listened to podcasts and had no idea that there were so many great podcasts out there.

    I am a believer in podcasts now and fully intend to start listening to podcasts on a daily basis. I really do not have a lot of time where I am just sitting and doing nothing but I will make time for this. This will become my personal development.

    Thank you for all of the great information and the introduction to podcasts.

    Dee Ann Rice

    • Hey Dee Ann,

      Thanks so much for stopping by my site and leaving a comment! Sorry for the slight late reply, been very busy lately 😉

      Podcasts are an amazing way of consuming information and getting inspired on a daily basis. I usually find time to listen on my runs, workouts and when I commute around the city. Let me know what you think of the podcasts here once you start listen to a few of them!

      Thanks again, I really appreciate the support!

  • Great List. I would however like to add Bright Ideas and The Foundation podcast to the list as I follow it regularly and find great value from it.

    • Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment Salman, I really appreciate it!

      I will have to check out Bright Ideas, and I agree that The Foundation podcast is awesome, I listen to it quite a lot myself 🙂

  • Excellent post. Thanks for putting this out there.
