Following your passion as a female entrepreneur can be invigorating and empowering. But it also comes with its own unique set of challenges. As a female-lead business here at WCM, we know that nothing helps get through these challenges more than tapping into a community of other women in business for relatable stories, advice and support. Here are some of our favourite podcasts that we turn to when we need a bit of inspiration from our fellow business-women.
My Daily Business Coach
If you’re a small business owner who has fallen out of love with your business, My Daily Business Coach is for you. Host and business coach Fiona Killackey brings her 20 years of experience working in marketing and content for brands like Amazon and Audible to give you tips and tactics to reinvigorate your business. Fiona releases three types of episodes – quick, actionable tips (around 10 minutes long), business coaching episodes about topics like mindset and goal setting, and insightful interviews with business owners like Sage and Clare’s Phoebe Bell. Fiona’s hosting style is warm and down to earth, making My Daily Business Coach exactly what you need to help you find that lost love for your business.

Have you ever wanted to sit down and have an open, honest conversation with your favourite female founders about what it’s really like to run a business? That’s exactly what Lady-Brains (formerly known as Lady-Land) does. Hosts Caitlin Judd and Anna Mackenzie chat to founders of innovative brands, such as Mecca’s Jo Horgan and Modibodi’s Kristy Chong. Lady-Brains doesn’t shy away from difficult conversations like failure and finance (the episode with Shoes of Prey founder Jodie Fox about what happened when her business went under is particularly compelling), making it essential listening. Guests come from a range of industries, including beauty, tech, fashion and health.

Lady Startup Stories
Mamamia’s Lady Startup Stories brings you interviews with some of Australia’s most well-known female entrepreneurs, like Boost Juice’s Janine Ellis and baker extraordinaire Katherine Sabbath. But what sets this podcast apart is that the most recent season focuses on failure, and the moments that almost finished some of these powerhouse female founders. Give this one a listen for stories of struggle, resilience, and a reminder that there is no such thing as an overnight success!
