5 Podcasts Every Brown Girl Boss Should Be Listening to

Forbes reported Black women as the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States! Black women own an estimated 1.3 million business, talk about #blackgirlmagic!

If you have hopes and dreams of one day joining this group of women and starting your own company but you don’t know where to start you are not alone. I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business and one of the main things everyone says to do in the beginning is to find a great mentor. I didn’t necessarily have a mentor so I turned to podcast! I think of all of the podcasts below as a one-on-one mentoring session and I encourage all of my fellow brown #GirlBosses to do the same.

1. Hashtags & Stilletos

It’s a combination of one-on-one real talks with powerful women about everything from career, building business, and personal ups and downs. Sakita tells you what you need to know about all things PR and business.  She’s given tips about how to retain business and how to network correctly.


2. HustleNRose

This is perfect for the nontechnical #girlboss interested in building a technology start up company. Every episode gets to the nitty gritty practical steps of how people built their businesses. Episodes cover everything raising money, hiring, and managing teams.


3. Mattieologie

This fashionista shares her journey of turning her blog into a full time job. This is my go to podcast for everything related to branding, blogging, and business. She shares all of her amazing productivity hacks and describes ways to create systems within your business.

4. MyTaughtYou

One of my favorite podcast! I’m pretty sure I’ve listened to every episode. Myleik Teele, CEO/founder of CurlBox, answers all of our questions from relationships to business and the ins and outs of building a career. She is completely candid and honest about her experiences and what she has learned from every phase in her life. She is the perfect digital mentor, she’ll even answer your questions.

5. Side Hustle Pro

Every Wednesday, Caila interviews influential women in our community who turned their side hustles into full fledge careers. She also offers practical advice from her experience as a digital strategist and takes us on her side hustle journey.
