It’s hard to believe it, but it has been over two years since I started the #SmallBizChat Podcast, back in October 2019. As I said when we originally announced the podcast, “This podcast will be a way for you to learn even more about what I believe it takes to be successful in business.” And that is exactly what we have done, featuring in-depth interviews with guest experts as well as personal stories and advice on things that I have learned in my own journey.
2021 was an incredible year for the #SmallBizChat Podcast, and it really struck me as I was reviewing the list of the best small business podcasts of 2021. This is a list of my most-listened-to episodes from this year, and they cover everything from sales and marketing to finance and mindset.
