5 Podcasts that Celebrate Women Empowerment

August 20, 2018

Mother Honestly founder Blessing Adesiyan shares five podcasts every girl boss, entrepreneur and ambitious mom will love.

By Blessing Adesiyan

This is the year of the woman, so it is no surprise that we have been reading books like “Girl Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis and listening to podcasts like “Raising The Bar” by Drybar founder Alli Webb.

Here are my top 5 podcasts for women empowerment this year.

Rachel Hollis is my girl fan of the year, and it’s no surprise that her podcast is No. 1  on the list. Rachel gets it! She is an amazing mom, a writer, a conference developer and business owner. “Rise” is a bold conversation that provides the listener with real life tangible takeaways. It’s the perfect balance of loving encouragement and straight-up kicking your butt! Subscribe here.

2. Raising the Bar

Alli Webb is the founder and CEO of Drybar, and lest I forget to mention that Metro Detroit just got its own Drybar here in Birmingham! We are super excited about that. But seriously, Alli is the mama who was home creating space for motherhood and then realized that she needed to do something for herself. She started blow-drying her friends’ hair, and then got her husband and brother Michael (“Raising the Bar” co-host) involved. Picture that for a second. Drybar has over a hundred stores across the country. Alli and Michael share what it takes to risk everything on a great idea, they share the things they’re obsessed with — and they fight like brother and sisters. Yep, we kind of guessed that.

3. Myleik Teele’s Podcast

4. WorkParty

Part work, Part party. Meet the “WorkParty” podcast hosted by Jaclyn Johnson, Create & Cultivate CEO and author of “WorkParty.” The weekly podcast deconstructs the business of being a modern working woman and tackles topics such as negotiation, honing your pitch and creating that killer tagline.

5. Goal Digger

We saved the best for last. Photographer? Creative Entrepreneur? Starting a business online? Market guru Jenna Kutcher drops gems related to social media, entrepreneurship, business and life in a personal way that resonates with many. I listen to every single episode twice because they are just that good. Jenna is helping women redefine success on their own terms because, according to her, work doesn’t have to feel like work.
