“Mentorship can come in many forms and it doesn’t always have to be a direct skills transaction between you and another person.“Bianca Barratt, The Best Podcasts for Female Entrepreneurs
Podcasting is a modern form of media that allows people all over the world to engage with each other. This communication medium is a platform for sharing everything from ideas and tips and tricks, to personal stories regarding almost every career and interest imaginable. One of the main reasons that podcasts are so popular is that they make information from experts on a certain topic accessible to anyone with a listening device.
For women entrepreneurs, podcasts can serve as a valuable resource for learning from the stories of other women who have turned their business dreams into a reality. In Bianca Barratt’s Forbes article, “The Best Podcasts for Female Entrepreneurs,” she explains,
“Speaking from experience, I find podcasts to be an excellent source of informal mentorship. Not only are they easy to access, they also give you the opportunity to hear the wisdom of some of those top mentors you may not meet in person (type “Sheryl Sandberg” into any podcasting app and you’ll find a list of podcasts she’s been featured on as long as your arm). Podcasts, in my opinion, remain one of the greatest resources for entrepreneurs, offering mentorship, guidance and expertise from successful businesswomen for free.”The Best Podcasts for Female Entrepreneurs
