I am a recent podcast convert.

Why?

Because podcasts are golden content opportunities. Think about it: your audience can download an episode and listen to it whenever and wherever! You can listen to the latest episode in your favorite serial podcast while getting in your workout. Or you can listen to the latest industry podcast on your morning commute. Entertaining AND efficient. 

I wanted to share a few of my favorite podcasts. I listen to these frequently and I have learned many lessons and tips from the brilliant minds behind them. From health and wellness to business and entertainment, here are five podcasts for a happy, healthy and productive year.

Why I love it: Amber tells it like it is. She will tell you exactly what you need to hear when it comes to living your healthiest life. Whether you feel plateaued in your weight loss, struggle with emotional eating or lack a solid self-care routine, download this podcast.
