This post contains affiliate links for the first time ever! Just thought I'd try it out! I'm SUPER professional!
Over the last few months (I started in April) I have grown to love the education and motivation I get from listening to podcasts. It all started when I took a road trip to St George alone BY MYSELF. It was four peaceful hours there and four peaceful hours back with nothing to do but listen to music. Now I am a music junkie, but I had the genius thought before I left to subscribe to a few podcasts that caught my attention, just to see what all the fuss was about. I listened to music for 20 minutes until I got bored and thought, "Meh! I'll give a podcast a try."
I have always loved to be around people, I am always the last to leave a party, I always keep guests hostage at my house for too long telling random stories that have nothing to do with why they are there, and I would way rather face time or call you rather than text. I love the feeling I get from connecting with people in person. So as soon as I started I knew I would be addicted. There were a few stand out and a few that I quickly realized were not for me simply out of either content or the guess didn't connect with me but now months later and a full blown addition to podcasts I figured I would share my favorites with you!
Also many of you have asked how I listen to my podcasts. I am including this link for you to read in depth the different ways that you can listen either on iPhone, android, or on your computer.
So I did it. I compiled all of these for YOU to find and listen to and I know you will love them. You can click on the photo or the title below to be taken to their site! If you listen to any episodes and love them send them over to me! I'd love to talk to you about the things you are learning from these!
I usually turn the podcast one when I'm cleaning the house and listen on the Block Rocker (the greatest gift I have ever given Dane.. that I use.. daily. Sorry Dane!) But since I can't always rock out to my podcasts, I also I have included a link to my favorite headphones that Dane got ME, I use the Senso Bluetooth Headphones, I love them because they are wireless and they make it easy to get things done and listen at the same time!
