For those of you that are not yet addicted to podcasting, let me start with a quick intro. A podcast, to me, is the equivalent of free, “on demand,” radio, but you are not limited to listening to cheesy local stations or anything that isn’t relevant to you. So if you like on demand services like Netflix, Hulu, SiriusXM, or on demand cable, you are very likely going to love podcasting.

I titled this article, the Top 10 Podcasts For Modern Entrepreneurs, after listening to over 100+ different business, marketing and entrepreneurial podcasts. These podcasts represent what I consider modern business related topics. The topics range from entrepreneurship, sales, social media marketing, online marketing, personal branding and beyond.

I became hooked on podcasting a few years ago, and my only goal today is to introduce you to a medium that is exploding before our eyes and that covers virtually every genre you can possibly imagine.

In addition to being an avid listener, I also wrote a very popular article not long ago, here on Influencive, about my LinkedIn strategy that helped me to get interviewed on over 20 top podcasts.

My Top 10 Podcasts for the Modern Entrepreneur!
