Listening to podcasts has literally changed my life for the better.

I remember a friend telling us in 2015 about a podcast he was going to start.

And I was staring at him like at an alien.

A pod-what?

It’s so embarrassing to admit but I haven’t heard of podcasts before.

A lot changed since then and I can’t imagine a day without listening to podcasts.

Once you start listening and applying the things you learn it can change your entire life.

During the past 2 years, I checked out a lot of different podcasts in the field of personal development, as well as business and gained a bunch of knowledge from both.

In this post, I share with you the top 10 personal development podcasts I recommend to check out and give you a little insight on each what they are all about.
