Rewind to this time last year and I barely knew what a podcast was, now I love them! I listen to atleast a couple a week either on my way to work or while I’m pottering around the house – basically at any opportunity I get… There is nothing I love more than finishing an episode and feeling inspired, here are my favourites that I tend to turn to when I need a boost of motivation and need to get shit done.
Letters From A Hopeful Creative
It’s this one that inspired me to write a post, if you’re a “hopeful creative” or just a creative person in general and looking for inspo you need to get subscribed to this. I discovered the podcast when around 5 episodes had already been recorded and had a massive binge listen on a 3 hour drive home a couple of weeks back (best solo driving journey ever). The podcast is by Sara Tasker and Jen Carrington, they’re both so knowledgable, relatable and successful business women who share their answers to letters sent in by hopeful creatives. Topics covered include pricing, Instagram/ social media, productivity and taking the leap of faith and putting everything into your business.
I’m sure you will all already know Anna and Lily, both are an inspiration to me when it comes to blogging and YouTube anyway, so when At Home With launched not only did it introduce me to podcasts and how amazing they actually are, but I was hooked! I wanted an episode a day not one a week… Their recent episode with Jules the founder of Isle of Paradise honestly filled me with joy, he’s such a positive person and hearing his journey and outlook on life made me do a cheesy grin mid way through my commute. Be prepared to have all the interior envy and want to redecorate your home each week too.
I was introduced to Take Fl1ght by Mark Whittle when he interviewed Lydia Millen, of-course that was a seriously inspiring episode and a juicy hour and a half long so a good one to get into during a long drive home, but since discovering I’ve listened to every episode since. The podcast is basically Mark interviewing amazing people who are achieving their goals and standing out for the work they are doing. I’ve taken away practical tips that have helped me set goals and aided productivity, and it’s nice to hear success stories from a whole host of people in different industries.
Feel Better, Live More
A bit of a different one to the rest I’m mentioning, this one came up in my suggestions and I noticed there was an episode with Emma Willis (who I bloomin love) so I gave it a listen. It’s essentially about health and how to live a healthy lifestyle easily. I studied Psychology at uni, and being the absolute geek I am I love leaning about the links between physical and mental health. Some of the guests on the podcast have done some incredible reasearch, I find it so inspiring and it definitely makes me think a little more about what I eat (atleast for a day or two anyway…)
Finally, another OG podcast that I started listening to a while back. It’s hosted by Sara Tasker (aka insta queen) who co-hosts Letters From A Hopeful Creative mentioned earlier. If you’re looking for advise when it comes to using Instagram in a business sense, look no further. Honestly I’ve learnt so much from listening to this over the past year, as the name suggests it’s all about being authentic on social media which is something I aspire to achieve every time I post. I love her ethos and how she’s managed to grow such an amazing following and community.
So, they’re a few of my favourites when it comes to feeling inspired… Do you have a favourite podcast?
