I am so relaxed. This blanket of warmth and peace around me feels amazing. This hour of yoga yesterday really did have a powerful impact on the quality of my sleep. If only people knew how great it is, everyone would be trying yoga.
A few seconds into this bliss and my phone vibrates, indicating that it’s time for me to get up, stop dreaming and get to work. It’s 5:50am and I’m… what? It’s 5:50am! The alarm should have rang 30min ago. My 7am meeting looks dangerously close.
Hurried breakfast. Expedited shower. A few (20min) later I’m in my car driving to the office half
Now I have two options to wake me up during my commute:
- The Rock Station that satisfies my earbuds,
- The Personal Finance podcasts that turn my brain on.
Now if you’re like me, you know how difficult it is to wake up at 5am when you tend to be more productive after midnight.
But what a delight this is to commute and learn something in the process. I’ve listened to many podcasts this year, here is my selection of Personal Finance and Entrepreneurship podcasts.
One of my favorite podcasts. Pat is an expert in affiliate marketing and the creation of passive income. His interviews cover a wide range of businesses models but focuses on the entrepreneurs and how they created successful business models. I like these podcasts because they are ‘to the point’ and a great source of knowledge for anyone interesting in entrepreneurship.
Duration 45min — Periodicity 1 / week
Farnoosh started her career with Jim Cramer to start TheStreet.com TV and, by the way, recently interviewed him. She has interviewed many celebrities of the Personal Finance Community including Paula Rant (#187), Mr and Ms Money Mustache (#173 & #164), J. Money (#43), Robert Kiyosaki (#8) and much more. Check it out!
Duration 40min — Periodicity 5 / week
The Madfientist podcast isn’t exactly the most regularly updated, but each episode is great. I especially like the fact that I can hear about my favorite bloggers like JL Collins NH, Go Curry Cracker, 1500days, JD Roth and Mr Money Mustache. It’s perfect for a 2-week Madfientist podcast binge.
Duration 30-40min — Periodicity 3 / year
Possibly the most active podcast that I know of, there are over 1000 episodes as of this writing. Similarly to the SPI Podcast, John interviews entrepreneurs but focuses more on their story, how they became entrepreneurs, the best advices they have received, their habits for success… The EOFire podcast is a daily dose of motivation for all (aspiring and current) entrepreneurs!
Duration 30min — Periodicity 7 / week
As opposed to all the podcasts above, the Fizzle Show is hosted by 4 energized presenters that make entrepreneurship discussions highly entertaining. The combined wealth of experience that the 4 hosts bring the audience is high quality. It’s a format that will appeal to folks who prefer the a dynamic talk show to a 1:1 interview.
Duration 1h — Periodicity 1 / week
Brian is the cofounder of CopyBlogger and CEO of Rainmaker digital and I like his approach to conducting interviews and doing business. He has a clean and simple approach that makes the topics highly accessible.
Duration 25 min – Periodicity 1 / week
Hope you find interest in these podcasts as much as I do. If there are other podcasts that you like and listen to, please share in the comments I’d love to know!
