Sitting in the car, on the bus or in the library? Maybe you are going to the gym or just lying in bed. Do you need some career advice, motivation, or entertainment? Here are my two favourite fun and motivational career podcasts!
The School of Greatness – Lewis Howes
Lewis Howes had a rocky childhood as he dealt with bullying and abuse. But he had his mind set on becoming a professional football player. After a life-changing injury, he became a New York Times best‑selling author and the owner of a seven‑figure, multimedia business. In The School of Greatness, he invites various celebrities such as actors, athletes and business moguls to talk about their story and their successes in business. Every Friday, he also posts 5‑minute videos with advice on topics like leadership and public speaking.
Safe for Work – Liz Dolan and Rico Gagliano
Hosted by Liz Dolan, former Chief Marketing Officer of world-class brands such as NIKE, OWN:The Oprah Winfrey Network, and National Geographic Channel, and Rico Gagliano, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, this very funny and entertaining podcast talks about the little problems that may come with working a 9 to 5 job. They talk about things like asking for a raise, dealing with public-speaking fears, achieving the perfect work-life balance, and even how to fake an illness when calling in sick! They also take calls from listeners to answer their own career and work questions whether that is dealing with a crazy boss or dealing with a distracting coworker.
