It’s no secret I have embraced the power of listening. A couple of years ago, I realized that listening to the radio was fun, but honestly, didn’t motivate me, pour into my life or give me any advice to advance my business or my life. It’s almost like scrolling on Instagram to veg out. There’s no purpose and it doesn’t help you get closer to anything. So I decided to ditch listening passively to listening with a purpose. Podcasts and Audible were my replacements.
I’ve been listening to podcasts for as long as I can remember, but there are a few that have consistently stood out as PHENOMENAL listens & have helped me better advance my life in ways I can’t even tell you.
So girls, today, here are 5 podcasts you need to get on and get your life together.
The Blk + Grn Podcast
For my girls who live life unapologetically and value brands who take the effort into creating non-toxic products for everyday life, this is for you. Blk + Grn is a gem in the wellness space that provides a market of products created by – wait for it – women of color!!! I have already purchased a couple of products off of it and they are FANTASTIC (reviews coming soon). Blk + Grn just launched their podcasts and the conversations are so dope. You HAVE to listen how these women created their brands & the stories that help them become who they are today. You can listen here.
MASTER YOUR MINDSET: Tools to Win the Inner-Game
This podcast came as a suggestion from a business owner and I have been hooked ever since my first listen. This podcast is run by two guys who have made names for themselves in the athletic space, helping athletes master the mental skills they need to be the best performer AND person, on and off the fields. For my business owners who don’t have a lot of time in the day, they have really, really short podcasts that will get you fired up to do the best business yet! Listen here.
Style Your Mind Podcast
Now you girls know how I feel about my boo, Cara Alwill Leyba. She is a girl boss, entrepreneur, & master life coach who has created her brand, The Champagne Diet, from a blog to an entire brand of books, coaching groups, and a podcast that bangs, ya’ll. I love how raw and real Cara is about her life and her journey and how important it is to continue to do the self-work within and be persistent in what sets your soul on fire. She’s my sister from another mister. Check her out!!! Listen here.
I had the chance to hear Havilah speak at my church’s women’s conference, True Conference, last year and she blew me away. Pastor of Bethel Church, Havilah is a mom of four and a dog who lives her life honestly and openly, sharing her knowledge of being a young woman lead by the word of God. She’s super relatable and talks about everything from self esteem, motherhood, struggles in the journey and everything in between. She has taught me so much about the power of intentionality! You can listen to Havilah here.
Where my meditators at?! Meditation is something that is a skill that takes practice (honestly, I’m not that dope at it like I can be), and is always evolving. I came across Josie’s podcast, Affirmation Pod from another blogger who loves her. I love her podcasts because the topics of meditation aren’t your typical “I will have a great day”, but centered around subjects that help you do self-work. It helps you navigate hard topics and the things we don’t want to face which holds us back. I am a huge fan of it! Listen here.
