I have a confession, I was slow to get on board to the podcast trend, but, now I freaking love them! Why did I wait so long?? I mean, I love reading blogs but nothing beats being able to go on a long walk while listening to your favorite podcast.
I chose these three because I wanted to share my favorites for when I'm feeling a little un-motivated. We've all been there, right? These podcasts provide inspiration and make you WANT to get moving on your goals. They're filled with brilliant, amazing people.
Just a few of the many reasons why podcasts rock:
- They allow you to multi-task while learning.
- They help you learn ten times as much stuff in half the time it would usually take you to read a blog post, magazine or eBook.
- When you work from home it can be a little lonely. You don't have the office chatter, the workplace friendships or the general buzz of your peers like a typical corporate job. When you listen to a podcast and hear the voices of entrepreneurs you admire, you don't feel so alone.
Ok, on to my favorites of the moment.
Happier with Gretchen Rubin
Happier is a podcast where author Gretchen Rubin and her sister Elizabeth Craft discuss how to build habits that promote happiness, and draw on their own experiences while doing so. Gretchen Rubin has this amazing ability to discuss happiness (including ideas on how to create more of it in your own life) without being hokey. A big plus in my book.
Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert
The podcast Magic Lessons is a continuation of the ideas she talks about in her book of the same title; how to live a creative life despite your fears and doubts. It’s all about living your best life, and creating the life you want to lead. It’s filled with really powerful conversations about creativity and how to be the best you. Plus, she has some amazing people on (think: Cheryl Strayed and Brene Brown).
Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso
I have another confession (apparently I feel like sharing today), I have a total girl-crush on Sophia Amoruso. (Watch for an upcoming blog post about her book #Girlboss, because, I just can't get enough). This podcast is all about amazing women. Each week Sophia interviews great girlbosses who have made a difference in the world, sharing lessons they've learnt along the way.
Be on the lookout for an upcoming blog on educational and information podcasts for entrepreneurs, but I wanted to start with sharing those that get me motivated and moving in the right direction. I'd love to hear what some of your favorites are!
