How often do you spend on a train or in the car commuting to and from work everyday?
Me? it takes me about an hour each way. So two hours per day, times by 5 days… That’s 10 hours per week!
And I drive, so I can’t waste my time on social media or be productive in many ways.
So I have turned to podcasts!
Podcasts are AWESOME! I guarantee you will be able to find a podcast about absolutely anything! And what a far more productive and time effective way to spend my 10 hours of commuting each week. Thats an extra 10 hours of learning each week; Priceless!!
Here’s some of my favourite podcasts at the moment!

A bit of a girly one run by entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso, where she interviews boundary-pushing women who have made their mark. Their conversations humanize the known, champion the unknown and laugh a little at the absurdity of life!
