One of the best podcasts that I constantly listen to would have to be Rewire by Ryan Stewman. This podcast certainly isn't for everyone, and that's one of the biggest reasons why I love listening to it so much. This podcast is raw and straight-to-the-point, but very helpful when it comes to improving almost every area of your life (especially business).
Noah Kagan Presents has been a constant source of new ideas for me. Noah is no question fun to listen to, as he has a great sense of humor. However, when he gets into the nitty-gritty of running a business, especially online marketing, I can't help but come away with new ideas. I often find myself stopping and recording an audio message to myself with a new idea I gathered.
As an early employee at Facebook and Mint, as well as founder of multiple successful startups, the podcast is filled with great stories and insights into what's working now. I too appreciate the timeliness of some of his latest podcasts. His recent series on ways to recession-proof your business was outstanding. On the investing side, I enjoyed his recent interview with NYU Finance Professor Aswatch Damodaran on investing in this new economy. It's definitely a great listen for the younger entrepreneurs out there.
I'm hooked on RIGGED: I'm absolutely hooked the new RIGGED podcast with Terry Sacka. I think now it's more important than ever to have some guidance on how to get our finances right in times of economic volatility. For the everyday person, the odds are against you and RIGGED does a fine job of helping you rig the wealth game in your favor.
The podcast I recommend is called Stories of COVID™, a real time documentary podcast that interviews people worldwide about their experiences with COVID-19. The participants share how their country or region is handling the pandemic, how their lives have been affected, and hope for the future.
Optimal Living Daily, a podcast by Justin Malik, is my recommendation. I've tried out hundreds of podcasts and have found that Optimal Living Daily is perfect for me because it's short (usually between 7-10 minutes) and I'm able to listen while I'm getting ready in the morning. The host collects the best personal development and productivity blog posts from around the web and reads them. That's it! It's a very simple concept that delivers exceptional content. I have a busy schedule, with two small children at home, and a full workday, with little free time to read blog posts. Having the posts narrated so I can do two things at once in the mornings is the perfect recipe for success for me. I look forward to listening and getting tips I can use for my business every morning and have implemented many of the suggestions I've heard on the podcast including how to make better decisions, become more mindful, and make sustainable changes in both my personal and professional life.
The Growth Manifesto Podcast is a relatively new series that launched in late 2019. Since I enjoy nerding out on digital marketing, I am always on the lookout for 2 things from an audio experience - a story that resonates with me and something actionable. Rarely do business and marketing podcasts deliver both and that is why I was very happy to chance upon The Growth Manifesto Podcast. For starters, one of the podcast hosts has a significant lisp and this is what caught my attention. I was
immediately impressed by his willingness to be vulnerable and when I heard his speech impairment come through, I just knew this was going to be a great podcast series because if there is one thing I know about people, it is that those who are willing to be who they are tend to be the most humble and honest.
As you will see, the podcast is run by a digital marketing agency. But there is no sales pitch. They simply interview amazing and inspiring business leaders (often from their pool of clients) and the personal journeys that you are privy to - one can extract a lot from. For example, two particular episodes from this series continue to leave a lasting impression on me. One is the episode where the COO of LJ Hooker Australia (Ruth Trewhella) shares how she came to be who she is today - a magnificent and inspiring story of how preparation, hard work and luck come together. The other episode that every entrepreneur or business owner should tune into is the one with Dr Melinda Muth on how to build effective teams. There is SO much incredible value to unpack from the episode.

Daniel has always been intrigued by human behavior. His first foray into entrepreneurship was selling his lunch to his school peers. His first (legal) business was as a wedding photographer. After 10-years, he transitioned across to SEO where he can apply his insights into why people buy and help businesses grow. It turned out to be the perfect segway as he quickly realized the value of digital marketing and cutting through the noise will always hold true. Today, he runs a link building 'agency' that gets brands, individuals and businesses PR-style mentions in popular publications such as Huffpost, Business Insider, and POPSUGAR. Outside of his work, he bakes a mean white and dark chocolate marble pound cake and enjoys buying LEGO. But as we all know, LEGO is not cheap and he gets approval from his wife to splurge on his LEGO by photographing them in funny ways (which you can enjoy from his Instagram handle @naughtyminifigs).
