As entrepreneurs, we’re constantly challenged to think out of the box. We’re always exploring new areas & connecting seemingly unrelated dots to search for the innovative ideas to bring our business even further.
To fuel our never ending creative pursuit, tons of experts & industry insiders are sharing their valuable insights on the internet, especially in the form of podcasts, a most popular & convenient way to get inspired on our entrepreneurial journey.
There are numerous of great business podcasts out there for us entrepreneurs – from start-up strategies, social media & sales to productivity & personal development. And I’m a big fan. It’s great to dive into all these tips, tricks & strategies, finding out new ways of doing business to succeed.
But let’s be honest now… it’s not with these tips, tricks & strategies of doing that we find the new ideas. It’s in the stimulation, the excitement of our imagination, it’s in the blending of concepts from different contexts that we find original ideas & insights that will level up our business (and us!).
