Learning is my jam. I often toy with the idea of going back to school for another degree some day, but then I remember homework and tests and that idea quickly fades away. Enter podcasts. I think you should strive to learn something every day. People learn by seeing, feeling, and hearing. More intellectually known as a Visual, Auditory, and Tactile learning.
I definitely fall in the visual learner category, but there is something to be said about pushing yourself to be a better auditory learner if that isn't your primary way of learning.
No one has ever said anything bad about being a good listener. Ever.
One way I like to learn and sharpen my listening skills is listening to podcasts.
These are the five podcasts that I regularly listen to and I'm so happy to share them and why I like them with you!
JENNA KUTCHER: GOAL DIGGER
This is my go to business podcast because each episode is formatted for learning and always has key take aways that are tremendously helpful. I have been following Jenna from practically the beginning and have seen her success through the sky rocketting of her Instagram account. Six years ago Jenna was working in the corporate world, when she decided to buy a camera off Craigslist to document their wedding planning journey. She photographed a relative's wedding and the rest is history! She is now a huge girl boss and someone I greatly admire and follow on multiple channels! Love me some Jenna K! Her podcast covers topics on business, branding, marketing, and inspiration.
This is my second go to podcast for business and ultimate girl bossing. Like the Goal Digger podcast, it covers business, branding, marketing, and inspiration, but I would say that this podcast covers a multitude of niche businesses and a variety of personal growth topics. Also most of these podcasts are recorded in interview form with guest speakers. This podcast has been around a lot longer so there are a lot more episodes.
BOBBY BONES: BOBBY CAST
The Bobby Cast isn't really for business development, but I would say I can definitely categorize most of the episodes in the inspirational category. Bobby Bones, is a radio host, comedian, singer/songwriter, AND New York Times Best seller. He interviews artists, songwriters, and covers the behind the scenes of the music industry in depth. I love knowing a little more about artists and the music industry than I would normally every learn. Bobby is the bomb and his love for his dog, Dusty, definitely resonates with this fur mama. :)
Can you be a ride or die YHL fan? haha If so, I definitely am. These DIY bloggers have been on my daily reading list for YEARS, and you cannot imagine how devastated I was when they decided to step away from blogging. I mean I totally get it. I get exhausted from cranking out like a tiny tiny tiny tiny percentage of the mega blog they were producing. So imagine the EXCITED screeching from my house that ensued when they decided to launch Young House Love Has A Podcast! Believe me. T thought I was losing my mind. Their podcast covers all things home, from DIY and renovations, to beach houses, to a multitude of interior design topics. My favorite part is the game show portion when John quizzes Sherry. His made up answers are priceless!
This podcast is particularly interesting for engaged couples/ newlyweds. I started listening to this duo during T and I's engagement. The Paper Year is an interview style podcast where two newlyweds interview married couples about all things marriage such as house chores, communication, in-laws, and so much more. They are incredibly funny and really help me see these topics from different perspectives.
There you have it! Five of my favorite podcasts covering business to music to DIY and marriage. That's quite the range if I do say so myself!
I listen to Bobby Bones every day, but definitely try to listen to the Goal Digger podcast a couple times a week!
