Want something edifying to do on your commute to work? We suggest listening to podcasts. More specifically, career podcasts that can help you improve your career and reach your job goals, whether it is snagging a promotion, switching jobs or getting inspired to start your own business. Here is a list of our favourite ones to get started.
THE SCHOOL OF GREATNESS
When an injury prevented Lewis Howes from continuing to play professional football, he decided to channel his energy instead to become a New York Times bestselling author and lifestyle entrepreneur. On top of that, he also started this podcast aimed at sharing inspiring stories on what makes great people great by interviewing brilliant business minds, world-class athletes and celebrities. So if you’ve always wanted to know the tips and tricks, tune in to this one.
