Ever heard of the entrepreneur mindset? Is it important to have this kind of mindset as a new blogger?
Hello, everyone. This blog is all about success-driven strategies to help new bloggers achieve clarity and focus.
Today, let’s talk about the entrepreneur mindset.
What is an Entrepreneurial Mindset?
According to Prominence Global, the entrepreneurial mindset is composed of three elements:
- Beliefs – this element is about an entrepreneurs belief to succeed
- Focus – This element covers grit, the ability to focus on a specific goal and work hard to achieve it no matter what
- Attitude – this element refers to you physical, mental, and emotional traits that can strengthen or weaken your entrepreneur mindset
Moreover, The Hack Entrepreneur defines the entrepreneur mindset as one’s ability to:
- Improve your skills
- Learn from mistakes
- Take action on an idea
Therefore, an entrepreneurial mindset is comprised of positive traits that will strengthen your ability to run a business. In our case, a blogging business. As a new blogger, this can be quite a challenge.
I mean, you’re just getting started with WordPress, SEO, Pinterest, and social media marketing. Now, you have to think like an entrepreneur?
Believe me, I get it.
As someone who doesn’t have a “proper” business background, there are instances when I just drop everything, stay away from the computer for a few hours, and play with my dogs.
A quick reset, if you will.
I mean, blogging is never easy. I don’t think it will be.
But with the right mindset, tasks can be simplified. This way you can create a system that works so you can run the business smoothly.
Looking at where you can get inspiration and ideas on how to develop your entrepreneur mindset?
Of course, there’s YouTube.
Here are the best YouTube channels for entrepreneurs which will help you improve your growth and entrepreneur mindset as a new blogger.
20 Best YouTube channels for entrepreneurial mindset
1. Allison Lindstrom
I started binge-watching her YouTube videos in October 2018, 30 days before I started The Greatest. I love the way she explains everything about how to start a blog. Her videos are straight to the point and don’t talk about her love for writing.
Instead, she talks about blogging from a business point-of-view.
Find her on Allison Lindstrom and Blogging to Win.
2. Anastasia blogger
Looking for ways on how to use Pinterest effectively? Check out Anastacia’s YouTube channel.
Her videos cover tips on how to make money with Pinterest, how to get traffic, pin designs, and Pinterest SEO and analytics.

3. Cathrin Manning (The Content Bug)
When Cathrin started her YouTube channel, the main goal is to use the platform to drive more traffic to her blog.
She creates videos about how to start a blog, Pinterest management, and freelancing.
In 2019, she started making videos about YouTube i.e. how to start a YouTube channel, how to get monetized, how to gain subscribers, etc.
Suddenly, her channel blew up. Now she’s on the road to having 200k subscribers.
So if you think a YouTube channel will help your brand grow, check out her channel, Instagram, and blog.
4. Create and Go
I have mentioned Create and Go from a previous blog post. It is created by the power couple, Alex and Lauren.
I appreciate how they talk about their success and failures as full-time bloggers.
Yup, their first blog failed.
But the mistakes they’ve learned from that blog allowed them to start another one (a health and fitness blog, Avocadu), which paved the way for Create and Go.
Now, Create and Go offers self-paced online courses which will walk you through on how to start a blog, all the way to monetization.
Find them on Avocadu and Create and Go.
5. Digital Marketer
If you want insights on the ins and outs of the digital marketing industry, The Digital Marketer is the perfect go-to YouTube channel for you. As a new blogger, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the amount of information you need to run a blogging business. Digital Marketer is a wonderful solution.

6. Digital She.E.O.
The Digital She.E.O. is created by Jen Towkaniuk. I found her on one of the Facebook groups for bloggers that I joined. Aside from blogging, Jen covers everything from affiliate marketing, social media marketing, all the way to creating your personal brand.
If you’re struggling with Pinterest, check out Pinfinite Traffic Bootcamp, her new course about doing Pinterest marketing the right way.

7. Erin May Henry
Erin May Henry is an entrepreneur, YouTube content creator, and founder of The Game Changer Company. She helps women in their journey towards personal and business growth.
I love her YouTube channel because it gives fresh insights about running an online business and taking action. Besides, a lot of people think about shortcuts that makes life easy. But Erin talks about the struggles of building a business and how to persevere.

8. Gillian Perkins
Gillian Perkins is an entrepreneur, author, the founder of Startup Society, and the host of the Earn More Work Less podcast.
Like Cathrin Manning, her YouTube channel talks about how to start and grow profitable online businesses. But most of her recent videos gear into how to start and grow a YouTube channel.
9. Girl and the Word
Girl and the Word is not a business channel. In fact, here you can find devotional videos that encompass DIY projects, cooking, home decor, gardening, and more. But I included this channel in the list because Anh (the content creator) recently opened The Hooga Shop, an online store that sells handmade ceramics to artisanal candles and minimalistic decor.
Also, I see a lot of depiction of abundance in her channel, as long as your heart is in the right place. I think that’s one of the ways to strengthen your entrepreneur mindset, too. When you know that your heart is in the right place, everything follows.
10. Income School
This YouTube channel talks about SEO, writing blog posts, creating a Youtube channel, and affiliate marketing.
The Income School offers an online course called Project 24. This course teaches you how to create passive income in a span of 24 months.
11. Joe Rogan Experience
I love this YouTube channel. Joe Rogan interviews some of the best people from around the world. My favorites are his interview with Elon Musk and Kevin Hart.
I remember what Kevin Hart said about his career. “I am married to my job. I’m dating my family.”
12. Katie Steckly
Katie is an Instagram marketing expert. In her YouTube channel, you will learn how to use Instagram to get clients, how to get more followers, how to use hashtags, and more. So if you think that Instagram will drive more traffic to your site, or you want to make money with sponsored posts, check out her channel.
Lavendaire is a YouTube channel about personal growth and how to create your dream life. I love this channel because it shows that it’s possible to have a balance between your career and your personal life. It isn’t the perfect balance. But at least you get to enjoy your personal life, and excel in your business or career.
14. Matt d Avella
If you are curious about what it’s like to be a minimalist, check out Matt’s channel. But what I love most about this channel is his videos about productivity, discipline, and creativity. As content creators, our workflow is entirely different from regular office jobs. Therefore, the approach to stay focused and productive is entirely different, too.
15. Suzi W Start a Mom Blog
Just like Allison Lindstrom, Suzi Whitford of Start a Mom Blog is another channel about starting and monetizing a blogging business. In fact, she recently launched a course called Printables by Number that teaches you how to create and sell your own products on your blog.
16. The Financial Diet
If you’re bad with me money, or at least trying to be good at it, The Financial Diet is an excellent channel. It covers topics about saving, investing, debt, and basically everything that has something to do with money.
17. Vanessa Lau
Another Instagram expert is Vanessa Lau. She creates YouTube videos about how to turn your followers to clients and how to leverage social media to create massive tribes and drive quality leads to client-based businesses.
Okay, Pomplamoose is a music channel. It is created by married couple Jack Conte and Natalie Dawn. The reason why I added them in this list is that aside from making music, Jack Conte is also the founder and CEO of Patreon, a membership platform for artists and creators to get paid.
According to Jack, it’s been a long and weird 100 years for artists to earn a living by doing what they love. Patreon may have solved the problem,
19. Wholesale Ted
Do you want to scale your blogging business with print-on-demand and dropshipping? Then this channel is for you. Here, you will find
- Case studies on successful e-commerce stores
- Tutorials for apps & online tools
- Low-cost, beginner-friendly product sourcing methods (Print On Demand & Dropshipping)
- Videos to help you with the “legal stuff” (creating refund policies, setting up taxes, etc)
An Entrepreneur Mindset
I can’t say that anyone can develop an entrepreneur mindset. For some, this is the road less traveled. And as a new blogger, it’s both scary and exciting. Good thing we’re now in the digital world. Hopefully, my list of the best YouTube channels for entrepreneurs will get you inspired, motivated, and attain clarity and focus towards your blogging goals.
