Everyone loves music, right? Even busy entrepreneurs take the time to add a little vibrancy and music therapy to their day - or, they should, in any case!

The benefits of getting down to a sick beat (heck, Taylor Swift even tried to trademark the phrase) are far-reaching, and it’s so easy to implement some more auditory nourishment into your daily life.

Not convinced? Here’s just a few reasons why you should listen to more music in your quest for entrepreneurial success:
 

  • There’s a huge body of research that suggests listening to certain types of music boosts productivity, creativity and accuracy in work-related tasks.
     
  • Upbeat music can ease anxiety and enhance your mood.
     
  • Music is scientifically proven* to be at least ninety percent better to listen to when compared with loud, oversharing conversations with Bernadette from marketing.

* Not scientifically proven at all (but is probably true).


So, without further ado, we present to you the ultimate playlist for entrepreneurs:
