Discovering Podcasts


Yes I know I am late to the game! But… better late than never right?!? In an effort to continually expand my knowledge I paid attention to some of the big names I follow on social media and randomly listened to a podcast one of them had suggested. I very quickly fell in love. Awesome people, awesome info… perfect for the car or when you get ready in the morning. Best part is that they are FREE!! They have podcasts for every category. If you are not familiar all you have to do is go to iTunes or your iPhone look for the image above and search a subject, name or category. As a new business owner and entrepreneur, listening to different people in various fields has led to a lot of growth for me and my mindset. I also feel like I have grown in other ways by listening to different podcasts with life hacks, tips and tricks.   I highly encourage you to search a category you are interested in and see if any of them resonate with you.

I have dived into a few different categories of podcasts and I have listed some of my favorites below. With some of them I have listed a specific episode to check out if I have a favorite. I would LOVE to hear what podcasts you enjoy, so please let me know in the comments below.

Check these out and let me know what you think!

My girl Rachel rocks this podcast just like she rocks everything else! The guest lineup is incredible. Such a wealth of knowledge and great tips to be discovered.
