Everyone’s path to success looks a little different. But I’ve learned that all successful people seem to have one thing in common: THEY READ. The most successful people that I’ve heard about are reading constantly. Always reading to expand their knowledge. Always reading to better their craft or skills. And while I don’t always have time to read, I do always have time to listen to podcasts (or audiobooks). For the past 6 months, I’ve really started to dive deep into how I can perfect my craft, grow my business, and overall just become the best version of myself. So whether it’s growing my business, or just becoming a more knowledgeable and well-rounded person, a daily podcast episode (or two) helps me do that. Below are some of my favorites broken down by category. Most of these I listen to on a regular basis, and others are ones that have been recommended to me but I haven’t had a chance to listen. I’m going to include both that way you can check any/all of them out. Also, keep in mind a lot of the personal development ones overlap with business and entrepreneurship but for the sake of this blog I’m going to try and break them up!
BEST FOR BLOGGING/INFLUENCING
-Drink With James (really specific to IG, blogging, and influencing)
-Girl Meets Gram (great for IG tips/marketing, personal branding, and online marketing. Episodes are also 10 minutes or less so super quick & efficient)
-The Goal Digger Podcast (good for IG and blogging, but some episodes also helpful for business in general)
