I consider myself a misfit.
Existing on the wages of multiples community but not really fitting into either of them. So I like to learn from others like me who carve their own path in life and don’t belong to a clear category.
I started my journey as an artist. I had to learn the business stuff from somewhere. So here are three podcasts that are jam-packed with quality content that people don’t talk about enough.
Listen to this:
Ditching hourly with Jonathan Starck
The name says it all.
Jonathan is an OG who’s teaching experts (primarily devs) to move away from hourly billing. In the podcast, you can hear coaching calls with his students where they break down challenges and explore possible solutions. But also an occasional interview with someone that is crushing it as a solopreneur.
My latest favourite episode is the interview with Blair Enns on productized services.
7 Figure Small with Brian Clark
All about making a 7-figure business without employees.
Brian is an OG copywriter with multiple wins as a solopreneur under his belt. In the podcast, you can hear interviews with other successful unemployable people and a breakdown of ideas relevant to soloists.
My latest favourite episode is called “Creator Coins: A value multiplier for community commerce”.
The self-made expert with Philip Morgan
It is all about market positioning.
Philip has crafted his own market positioning frameworks for solo experts and is also teaching a method of crafting your own intellectual property (IP) through daily writing and niche research. In the podcast, you can hear interviews with other folks that don’t want a boss or employees. What one appreciates about this is how often the guests are not too far in their journey and that makes it relatable.
My latest favourite episode is with Rob Fitzpatrick.
I can listen to these three the whole day and not get bored. Do you have your own favourite underrated podcast?
