Tim Ferris is a well-known staple when it comes to business and his YouTube content has proven to be a wonderful extension to his loved podcast: The Tim Ferris Show. His content includes everything from interviews with some incredible guests to a How To series where Tim shares tips on various lifestyle and business topics.
The NPR YouTube channel can be a bit overwhelming when you first stumble on it. Much like their network, there is a slew of content that is being covered within their videos. From politics to education, NPR has a series on pretty much anything. With this in mind, we suggest heading over to their playlists where you can narrow down the list of topics and find the ones that relate most to you and your business. We are big fans of the Live With Guy and How I Built This series which are video versions of the famous podcast series. NPR has also added a lot of content to their YouTube since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and each episode is geared towards helping people live/work better during these trying times.
