My 5 Favourite Personal Development Podcasts

Since I’m on such a podcast kick listening to so many business podcasts I needed to balance it out with some self development or personal development podcasts. These podcasts fuel my soul and give me some insight on life issues.

Here are the descriptions of the top 5 shows that I’m putting in my roster and why I like them…

The Chalene Show is fit life coaching, personal development, personal growth, priorities, productivity. faith, family, fashion and humor all rolled into one.

Why I Like It: As I talked about Chalene in business podcasts and her vibe gets even better in her life podcast. She truly sits down and talks to us like we’re her friends that need some of her guidance. This podcast had me re-organize my online passwords & internet security, reflect on my goal setting & really focus on my healthy habits. This podcast is really her catch all show of everything she’s passionate about that she’s learning about in her life so she can share with her world.

Why I Like It: I could listen to this man all day. One his voice is so soothing, two the format of his show keeps me interested weekly. He has made a show out of interviewing different personalities from all walks of life about what makes them great and then Friday shows are called 5 minute Fridays which are short and sweet. It’s a great balance of long in depth shows and quick fixes of awesomeness.

Why I Like It: When I went to write this post I realized I only had 3 personal development podcasts that I listen to. I wanted to round it out to 5 so I went searching for more and this one came up immediately in new and notable. She only has 7 episodes out at the time of this post but they are goodies. While she is focusing on business scenarios they are all life lessons on how we can approach situations more aware of ourselves and others. I love her voice, how she structures episodes and the advice she gives. She’s definitely going to be on my roster moving forward.

I’ve been reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and am almost finished the book at the time of this post. I love that she’s elongating the ideas about creativity into podcast form and it’s golden. I love Liz’s voice, how she’s doing real phone calls with real fans and helping guide them in their creative journey while also interview big names about the real fan problems. I just love it. She’s got 12 episodes so far and I’ve binge listened to them all over the weekend so I can’t wait for more!
