My Top 5 Favourite Inspirational Podcasts:
NPR’s TED Radio Hour. These are perfect for my commute and focus on a variety of different topics that keep me interested. Everything is pretty random but very cool. I had no idea how ants work together as a team until I listened to a TED Talk on the topic.
The Lively Show. Jess Lively has such a positive and inspirational outlook on life. Her guests are a great mix of people from many different professional backgrounds. I find I learn so much listening to each podcast. I started right at the beginning with this one and I’m working my way through these amazing shows. I really enjoyed episode from August 21, 2014 where Jess spoke to Taylor Sterling of The Glitter Guide about balancing work and motherhood since this is a daily challenge for me too.
The Biz Chix podcast. Natalie’s guests are women just like you and I – moms balancing work, life and everything in between. I find it’s easy to learn about different topics when I relate well to the interviewer and interviewees. I’m moving around with this podcast a bit more and found Natalie’s episodes 174 (The Peaceful Home) and 175 (The Productive Home) full of useful realistic tips and inspiration.
Food Blogger Pro. This podcast is by the Pinch of Yum blog team. While my baby blog isn’t all about food and recipes they have some really helpful tips for all bloggers and online entrepreneurs. Some of my favourite episodes include #24 Finding Balance with Ali Ebright from Gimme Some Oven and #18 How to Build and Online Business without Blogging with Jadah Sellner from Simple Green Smoothies.
Smart Passive Income. This is a classic podcast by Pat Flynn. Pat is very honest and genuine about the tips and tools he uses to make money online. New bloggers like me can learn so much from listening to Pat’s experiences and be inspired by his story and the stories of his numerous guests. I found episode 8 How to get more Traffic with Corbett Barr, episode 48 How a Part Time Blogger Landed his Dream Job and episode 63 monetizing a Hobby Blog really interesting and motivating. I also really enjoyed episode 167 where Pat talks to Chalene Johnson.
