I was recently asked to give a speech on three things that have transformed my life. It turns out that podcasts made it on that list (interesting, right?). It got me thinking that I need to share my love of podcasts with anyone who will listen. If it transformed my life, it can transform others.
According to a podcast insight website, here is what a podcast is:
“It’s all of your favorite blogs, shows, and topics (some you didn’t even know you’d enjoy!) wrapped up in a huge hub of recordings (Apple Podcasts, etc) that you can explore, download and listen to on your own time. In the car, at work, at home, working out, anywhere. If you can Google it, there’s probably a Podcast about it!”
I discovered podcasts three years ago. At the time I was looking for information on personal finance. I found out about Dave Ramsey, an American businessman and author, and started listening to his podcasts. Then is when I realized that I could search any topic in my podcast app and get a podcast on the subject matter. Next thing I knew, I had too many podcasts to count!
Being exposed to this limitless podcast world has allowed me to learn a great deal on any topic I love. It lead me to life and business coaching. The best part about all of this is that I put most of what I learned in action, and when I felt stuck, I hired a coach who was on one of my favorite podcasts. She transformed my life and I wanted to do the same for others, so I began coach training to become a life coach. The rest, as they say, is history.
Here are a couple of podcasts I started out with:
- The Dave Ramsey Show: It’s a daily three-hour-long podcast on personal finance. I learned Dave’s baby step and how to pay off debt (including student loans). I was sure to implement it.
- Stacking Benjamins: It’s a show on personal finance from Joe’s mom’s half finished basement (yup, you read that right lol). This podcast focuses on financial headlines and interviews with personal finance experts. Joe himself is a former financial advisor.
As the years went by, I have tweaked the list to reflect what I need to know and what I desire to learn in any given moment. That has served me well.
I hope you found this helpful! Stay tuned for next week’s blog for a list of my favorite podcasts over the years.
