Where in the world can we find focused episodes to learn new skills and get empowered?

Podcasts are powerful! You can hear thought-provoking discussions between people that you wouldn’t necessarily get from any other form of media. For some podcasts, this is the entire format, where each week a new guest appears ranging from social media influencers, entrepreneurs and people from all walks of life.

Many podcasts have guests join in on an episode or two to talk with the main presenter, which means you get to hear the mindsets of hundreds of new people a year on topics you may never even have heard of before!

4. How Your Podcast Can Change Someone’s Life

When you’re a part of a podcast, the main goal is communicating with others.

With this goal in mind, people…

  • Share stories
  • Learn about problem-solving skills
  • And better socialize outside of the show

These skills also transfer over to podcast listeners as well. The listeners of the podcast now have a broader understanding of the topics covered and have unconsciously picked up on the same social cues and techniques that the podcast presenters use to keep a conversation flowing and on topic. These communication skills are very valuable in our growth.

Podcasts can be really rewarding to listen to in the background while working out or cooking. No matter how you layout your podcast, someone somewhere will be excited to listen!

5. How Can You Stand Out In a Sea Of Creators?

Because podcasts are so popular, they bring in big audiences, so it’s no wonder they’re so popular now with brands!

Podcasting can be a source of income with sponsorships and advertising your other products. It’s a fantastic way that will benefit everyone. All you really need is a microphone and a device to post your podcast and you’re all set. It’s a low-cost, high reward business strategy that you can enjoy doing while helping out society with your voice and your influence.

The popularity of podcasts has been steadily rising and there’s no better time to contribute to them than now!


Congrats on making it this far! Now is the time to get out there and absorb all of the information you can and grow your knowledge base! What steps will you take towards utilizing a podcast in your life? We’d love to hear from you!
