It’s finally Friday. If you’re anything like us, the days are probably starting to bleed together in isolation. While some businesses have already successfully shifted to remote/work-from-home, others are still dealing with what all that entails. So many workers over the past weeks have been laid off or furloughed, but even if you’re out of work right now, that’s no reason to stagnate. Here are some of our favorite podcasts to get you through the weekend, which can help you continue to learn and develop your business acumen.
Straight Shot is all about marketing and its place in the world of business. Its hosts, B. Zachary Bennett and Jennifer Bennett, the principal and Art Director (respectively) of Reformation Productions in Atlanta, provide valuable insights about the role that marketing plays in every day life. In their recent episode, “Building Your Foundation – Small Business Start Up Series, Part 1”, they go into foundation building when starting your own business.
We’ve all been hearing about the impending recession, and with unemployment claims spiking to unprecedented levels, it isn’t hard to revisit the PTSD many encountered after the 2008 recession. But, as workers were laid off in 2008, many started gig-work, freelancing or even began building up small businesses that were stronger and more recession-proof than ever. Listen to this episode if you’re considering a similar approach in the days to come. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
