Getting into the world of e-commerce requires a great deal of knowledge, patience, and perseverance, and finding a mentor or coach can be tough. Fortunately, there are successful entrepreneurs out there who are offering up a ton of high-level guidance via e-commerce podcasts.
The following is a list of 13 podcasts that I listen to, or whose hosts’ opinions and tutelage I trust. Check them out!
E-Commerce podcasts for Amazon sellers
1) Niche Pursuits
Spencer Haws, a self-proclaimed family man, created his blog and e-commerce podcast as a way to talk about his business ideas. Spencer’s dipped his toe in lots of e-commerce waters, too. He’s an Amazon FBA seller, website-flipper, and has even run a software company. He’s been free of the 9-5 grind since 2011 and hasn’t looked back.

4) The TMBA Podcast
Airing since 2009, Ian and Dan of The TMBA Podcast started the show as a way to discuss their day-to-day business endeavors. However, after they sold their business for seven figures in 2015, the focus of their podcast shifted somewhat. Instead of focusing on their own business adventures, now they inform their listeners by interviewing (in Ian and Dan’s own words) “legit” business people and thought leaders.

5) Smart Passive Income
Smart Passive Income is the mastermind creation of Pat Flynn. Like many, Pat had to reinvent his career (and life) when the 2008 downturn killed the global economy. His e-commerce podcast teaches entrepreneurs how to take control of their future by creating passive income.

6) The Side Hustle Show
Nick Loper, a TedX talker, is the voice behind the Side Hustle Show. His matter-of-fact tone lets entrepreneurs know that entrepreneurship isn’t all about fat stacks and Lambos in the garage; there are plenty of ups and downs, too. Listen in and learn!

10) The $100 MBA
Both former university educators, Omar Zenhom and Nicole Baldinu of The $100 MBA have nearly three decades of educational experience between them.

Lewis Howes has promised to change 100 million lives, and his podcast, School of Greatness, is a part of that mission.
