I didn’t get on the podcast band wagon until last year. People would talk about them and I’d simply smile and nod my head thinking, “Oh yeah… people sitting around talking? Sounds like a blast.” *insert internal eye roll here*

Once I started listening, I dipped my toe in slowly. It started with Dave Ramsey. If you have ever looked at his podcast, then you know that there are literally enough episodes to keep you busy for years. After a while, though, I found that people often called in with the same questions and problems. His answers are unwavering, which is great for consistency, not so much for keeping me engaged.

That’s when I started actively seeking out more. I had developed a habit of listening to podcasts while cooking and cleaning to help make the tasks easier.

Now, I listen to podcasts in all kinds of genres but my favorites are always the ones that inspire action or reflection on my part. In fact, I keep a small notebook and pen handy while listening so I can jot down ideas that really resonate with me. I totally recommend you do too, especially when it comes to self discovery.

Spiritualish Podcast on Phone Next to Headphones


What I love about this podcast is that they tackle some seriously tough issues. They dove deep on a series about boundaries and they also talk about “societal taboo” topics like codependency and addiction. To date, my favorite episode gives you word-for-word scripts about how to say no with grace and finality (something I think every mom needs).

The Project Life Mastery Podcast on Phone Next to Headphones

Project Life Mastery Podcast

I am going to let you know straight-forward, I do not agree with his, or his girlfriend’s, views on everything. Sometimes they get too stuck in their own world to realize that what works for them in business, life, and as a couple simply does not (and should not) apply to everyone. That being said, I also think this one is worth listening to. He has a very direct go-after-your-goals energy that can give you the kick in the pants you need when you’re wallowing. I also agree with the attitude he has about constant self-improvement and trying to be better.
