Whether you are looking for something to bring you out of a creative block, working through the chaos of 2020 or navigating a challenge in your personal life, these podcasts will have you covered!


Brene Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston, has won over millions of people with her books and her infamous TED Talk.

Brene uses this platform to explore all human experiences including heartbreak, fear, and success.

The Lively Show came to us as a recommendation and while we weren’t sure what to expect from the young entrepreneur host, Jess Lively, we were beyond impressed with her show. As a young business owner, Jess Lively quickly learned how to listen to her inner voice in order to navigate the obstacles she faced in business and in life. The Lively Show is an extension of her experiences along with the advice and expertise of some incredible guests (Elizabeth Gilbert, Gary Vee, and even our first feature: Brene Brown to name a few!).

By now we all know that motivation is not the way to success. Like all other emotions, motivation will come and go. So, what can we depend on to help us work through a difficult situation and tackle the things we want the most? According to The Habit Coach, Ashdin Doctor, it is our habits that will give us the push we really need. This show focuses on all of the small actions and decisions that we make each day and how we can refocus those to better everything from our health, sleep, de-stressing, productivity, movement, nutrition and relationships. Our favorite thing about this podcast is that the episodes are short and sweet (less than 5 minutes!) so no matter what your schedule looks like, you can squeeze in a bite of inspiration.
