If you’re anything like me, and the majority of the members of our Youpreneur Community, the chances are that you’re an entrepreneur that’s on the go a lot of the time.
Traveling to speak at live events, holding workshops, doing book tours, interviews for press, visiting coaching clients – all that time adds up. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. However, what isn’t fine is if we’re wasting that time by watching movies on the plane, or snoozing in the back of the taxi.
Thanks to the world of podcasts, we can utilize this time to our advantage by tuning into great, free content that’ll help us incrementally move the needle, when it comes to our personal brand and business growth.
With this in mind, I decided to put together this quick list of seven of the best episodes of Youpreneur.FM, along with highlighting what you can expect to gain from tuning into them, on your next trip! Enjoy.

7. How to Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout When Building a Personal Brand
Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING… is more important than taking care of ourselves as we focus on building our brand focused business. The problem is we routinely forget that fact, and here I discuss how we can re-focus and avoid hitting burnout – LISTEN NOW!
‘Listening’ is Just The Beginning!
Now, I will say that in the past I’ve been guilty of sitting down and listening to a podcast episode, expecting to learn lots – actually do so… and then doing nothing about it!
Not anymore, I assure you.
As a personal brand entrepreneur myself, I’ve now started taking instant action on what I learn from my podcast consumption time – be it by actually doing something myself, making really in-depth notes and saving them (along with calendar alerts) to act on in the new future, or perhaps by delegating something to one of my virtual staff. Either way – I take action.
That’s what YOU need to do, too – it moves the needle. It gets things happening… and that’s the difference between us truly GROWING our brands and businesses and not. So, promise me you’ll take some action after you tune into some of the shows above, okay?!
