Be great. 

Or don’t be… I can’t make you. But I do know some podcasts that will put you in the mindset to be! 

Podcasts are proving to be an accessible option to learn from the people great and growing. With the opening of one of many phone application they are offered on, anyone, anywhere can incorporate a bit of insight and humor into their day.

In 2022, 62% of consumers older than 12 in the United States listen to podcasts, according to Statista, integrating this easily consumable media into their morning commutes, work around the house and movement regiments. Part of what makes podcasts so popular is the ability add them to an already established routine or habit, instead of having to carve out time like you would for other content mediums. I like to listen to podcasts while doing chores I sometimes avoid like folding laundry. Listening to something interesting enhances the whole experience, getting me a little smarter and my clothes a lot less wrinkly. 

With dozens of platforms to listen on and millions of podcasts to choose from, you’re not short on choices for your laundry listen. It can be tough to know where to start, especially in a content area as large and growing as self development. So check out our podcast picks and recommended starter episodes, here and with more on this Spotify playlist, chosen specifically with entrepreneurs and businesses in mind and anyone in the pursuit of a healthy mindset. 

After listening, you can also easily share an episode with all your friends on Facebook and Twitter, even if they didn’t ask. They will love it and so will you – and hopefully everyone will learn something along the way. You can get some practice sharing this blog post to let everyone know about your new, exclusive identity as a podcast listener. Let’s get great!

BONUS recommendation: TED Talks Daily 

Listen to the mindset podcast TED Talks Daily

It’s the thought-provoking talks you love in audio format. Every weekday, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design – you needed to know, this is such a good acronym to be able to unpack) brings you a new talk that is sure to intrigue and inspire. Many of these are 15 minutes and are easy to add to commutes or to the skin care routine you have been avoiding. What makes these a great alternative to YouTube clips is being able to skim the episode descriptions quickly and find the one I want to hear most in that moment. Give them a listen! 


And, as Kwik says at the end of every podcast: “Act on what you learned today. Remember, knowledge is not power; it’s potential power. It only becomes power when you use it”. So, get out there, listen to a podcast on your drive and take those steps towards a greater, happier you. But please do keep your eyes on the road!
