Recently I finished listening to a podcast series by, Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge, called After the Jump. I found it so inspiring to listen to something informative, motivational and real on the drive to and from work. Grace speaks of productivity, social media, work life balance among a variety of other topics.
There are also many interviews with creative business owners sharing their real life/work experiences. The series of 30min podcasts, some which are from quite a while ago, are still very relevant and they make for a great back to back binge listen (my style) or even one a day (if you have self control.)
If you are considering starting your own business, or have one, there are some nuggets of wisdom in each eppisode. I believe in learning from other’s mistakes and not only your own. You can save yourself a headache & heartache.
My top 5 episodes from the series:
Ep. 73) The Hidden Costs of Handmade Design
Ep. 13 ) Work, Life, and Balance
Ep. 28) Julia Rothman
Ep. 23) Lessons, Mistakes & Achievements
Ep. 89) Lisa Congdon
