Listening to podcasts is new to me. This is the first year that I started to really listening to podcasts on a consistent bases. I started with The Goal Digger Podcast, then moved onto Building a Story Brand, then stumbled unto This Sounds Fun, then added Business Boutique and the minute I hear about another possibly good podcast, I add it to my list.

Here's how I feel about podcasts, find the ones that YOU really love. I've listened to podcasts that weren't my favorite so I don't listen to them. And then I find podcasts that I really love and that's what I'm sharing today. 4 of my favorite podcasts and 1 that I'm about to test out because I need it, haha! I also really love podcasts that are more conversational, funny, and that teach me stuff, versus typical business-speak podcasts... if that makes sense. I kind of check out if a podcast immediately starts out with Instagram strategy. We all need Instagram strategy, but, you know, give it to me in a funny hilarious way. So, here we go...

Business Boutique with Christy Wright: This is my go-to podcast most days. Honesty, I just really like Christy Wright. I think she's funny. I think she genuinely wants to help women grow their businesses and she provides actionable steps to help you grow your business right now. Every day steps to get you one step closer to your dream. 

Building A Story Brand with Donald Miller: I started listening to Building a Story Brand after I read Donald's book. His book helped me understand my brand's message. I'm still in the process of flushing out that message, but Donald's guidance has been fundamental and I love his podcast. Lots of business advice at your fingertips in a conversational way. 

That Sounds Fun with Annie F Downs: I follow Annie on Instagram and listen to her podcast simply for fun. She's funny, she loves Jesus, and she makes you feel like you could BFFs. 

Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield: Amy's podcast is on my must-listen list. My marketing game always needs help. I am on the struggle bus when it comes to marketing and I definitely need marketing made easy in my life, haha! 

Rise Podcast with Rachel Hollis: I just started listening to Rachel Hollis and following her on Instagram. I appreciate how honest she is and I think she's funny. I actually heard about her through Christy's podcast. I basically hear about all other podcasts through Christy's podcasts, haha! I also just added her new book, Girl, Wash Your Face to my must-read list. 

If I was to sum up my favorite type of podcasts they would probably be funny or they would be with people who like to crack jokes and laugh, even if they are simply cracking jokes for themselves. I feel like that's what I do, I'm just cracking jokes to make myself laugh, even if no one else thinks they're funny! Tell me your favorite type of podcasts to listen to and who your favorites are! Share below! xoxo. Samantha
