Motivation is key when planning one’s career. You need a reason to get to work and be a productive member of society. Whatever your motivation is, you simply need one to power through the day. Motivation can come from any number of sources. And although I am a self-motivated professional, I do believe it is crucial to draw inspiration from others every now and then. Believe it or not, I feel that podcasts are a great resource for motivation. With that in mind, I wanted to highlight a few podcasts that I feel would provide some great incentives to get up and at ‘em.
While most college dropouts don’t go on to make seven-figure salaries, Angie Lee breaks the mold. Now the proud owner of her own podcast, Angie Lee discusses a variety of subjects surrounding finance and financial literacy. She also discusses how you can build up your own personal brand. What’s more is Ms. Lee is able to speak about these topics with conviction and a sense of humor. The podcast is definitely worth looking into if you’re interested in making some major career moves.
What is happiness? It is defined differently from person to person. But whatever your happiness is, you can strive towards it and make that happiness a reality. And the Earn Your Happy Podcast by Lori Harder will inspire you and teach you the ways of making that happen. Lori’s podcast focuses primarily on overcoming struggles and turning those struggles into successes. It’s an important and crucial skill to have, especially if you’re an entrepreneur (failure and struggle come with the territory).
The beauty of this podcast is that it doesn’t necessarily focus exclusively on business professionals. Anyone in any industry can listen to School of Greatness and take something away from it. The show’s host, Lewis Howes, brings a great approach to tackling a variety of topics, like personal branding and motivation. He also has the added benefit of bringing on celebrities who’ve achieved great success to share their tips and secrets.
All three of these podcasts are all great and can provide countless hours of motivation and inspiration. I hope that these podcasters can give you the motivation necessary to achieve your goals.
