33rd US president Harry S. Truman famously said, “not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
I can’t stress more than Truman on the importance of reading. However, you don’t need to be a voracious reader to become a great leader in 2018. Don’t get me wrong, reading books can make a huge impact but if you are like most entrepreneurs who work more than 50+ hours then its tough to find time for a book.
Still, you can keep up with your industry, understand deeply about business which made a massive impact on human race and you can learn from veteran business moguls by listening.
When it comes to listening you have two options, one is Audiobooks and another one is Podcasts.
Unlike textbooks and video, you don’t need to sit in a quiet place to consume; you can listen to them on the go. Moreover, you can listen to them while doing some repetitive or boring tasks like the daily commute.
In this blog post, we have listed down few podcasts which talk exclusively about eCommerce business and teaches you how to take your online retail business to the next level.
