My work takes me all kinds of places- which means I spend a lot of time in my car. While I love singing along to some Bruno or some Taylor when it comes on the radio, I honestly spend most my time in the car listening to podcasts or books on tape. 

If the summer is bringing you on some long road trips or you just want something new to listen to while you are on the dock or hiking in the woods, here are few podcasts that have transformed my life- and I think will change yours too.


1. This Is Your Life by Michael Hyatt

I have listened to Michael Hyatt's content for several years now and his content really has had a huge impact on my life and my approach to work. I have shared how his conference impacted me,  and why you should read his book. I think you'd like his podcast too.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants to live life with great intention, anyone who wants to succeed at work and at home, business owners and platform builders.

Why you'll love it: It's a weekly does of positivity, productivity and poise. I know when I listen to it I will always be uplifted and inspired. 


2. The Smart Passive Income Blog by Pat Flynn

I was introduced to Pat Flynn at Michael's Hyatt conference (see above) and I was so blown away by his tenacity and success. He is a young dad of 2 who figured out how to leverage the internet to help people in the most effective way possible- both for the end user and for his income stream. 

Who it is for: Anyone who wants to monetize their platform using the internet, anyone who wants encouragement to take bold steps both online and off.

Why you'll love it: Even if you don't run a business, I think people can benefit from how big and bold Pat Flynn thinks. He tells real success stories of ordinary people who had great ideas and were courageous enough to take one step and then another to make their dream a reality. 


3. Storybrand by Donald Miller

Donald Miller is the author of Scary Close (read my friend Sarah's great review of his book and then pick it up and read it) and he coaches business owners and marketers on how to best put the customer at the center of their marketing. He has just released a podcast which is pretty darn amazing.

Who it is for: I would say business owners and marketers will benefit most from his podcast, but anyone who hustles towards big goals in life I think would love it too.

Why you'll love it: The interviews with his guests are just so many nuggets of valuable, instantly applicable information to help you move the needle in wherever you need to go. I particularly loved the interview by Clair Diaz-Ortiz on how to plan your life and Scott Hamilton's interview on how he constantly strived for better. 


4. The 5AM Miracle by Jeff Sanders

I have written in the past why I value getting up early- even with little kids at home. So when I came across this blog recently I knew it was going to resonate.

Who it is for: Anyone who wants to up their productivity game and increase their impact on their family, their work and the world. 

Why you'll love it: I am just diving into this podcast but so far I love Jeff's positive approach to life in general. His approach to productivity is practical and pragmatic and it's hard not be inspired by his positive attitude.
