I love waking up early to have some quiet time before I jump into my day. One of the toughest decisions I make before 7 am is choosing between listening to a podcast or an audiobook on my dog’s morning walk.
When I first started my business, I listened almost exclusively to business podcasts, but now that I have my footing, I’ve stopped filling my head with unnecessary information. Now I choose to listen to podcasts that I love and make me smile.
I’m sharing 7 amazing must listen podcasts that you can listen to when you need some inspiration, business direction or just a good laugh.
