Best Business Podcasts

I listen to a crazy amount of podcasts. When I drive, in the shower, while cooking. Any time I can. I gauge how good they are by how often I share them with my team. If I find myself saying to my business manager “Laura, you have to listen to episode #326”, then I know it’s good. And if I find myself stopping what I’m doing and taking notes then I know it’s truly worthy.
