Love Your Work: A Creative Entrepreneur & Productivity Podcast

love-your-workHow do you find your calling? How do you focus to follow it? On the Love Your Work podcast, now with over one million downloads, I interview creative entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, authors, and startup founders who have carved out success by their own definition.

How did they turn setbacks into opportunities? How did they discover their passion? How did they overcome doubt and emotional obstacles? I dig into all of this and more, trying to crack the code for fulfilling work. Whether you’re looking for a creative entrepreneur podcast, a solopreneur podcast, or a productivity podcast, Love Your Work is for you.

Solopreneur David Kadavy interviews the most original creative entrepreneurs

Hear the stories of creative entrepreneurs like Seth GodinJason Fried, James Altucher, Noah Kagan, Mark Manson, and Laura Roeder. Learn from experts like behavioral economist Dan Ariely, productivity guru David Allen, cognitive neuroscientist John Kounios, and Dr. Terry Wahls.

I also bring you lessons from my own journey of loving my work. I followed my curiosity to become a best-selling author and eventually self publish, and I’m always working to do better. I’ll talk about how to boost productivity, set goals, and build creative habits, and should you make your bed to be successful?

By the way, if you’re interested in hearing me from the other side of the mic, here is a complete list of podcasts I’ve been on.
