Looking for the very best podcasts for women? Well then, prepare to change your life (for the better) FOREVER with this list of my 12 faves.
Podcasts are one of the biggest aspects of my life.
They’re easy to listen to (if you follow the right ones) and always worth every second of advice, support, and knowledge.
Presenting the 12 Personal Development Podcasts That WILL Change Your Life starting NOW.
1) Krisstina Wise loves money. And her WealthyWellthy Life Podcast is all about teaching you how to live a life of big money, good health, and everlasting happiness.
She believes that it’s possible to have an unhealthy relationship with money–one that causes more trouble, harm, and pain in your life than is necessary. Then she applies this theory to every aspect of life…physical health, spiritual fortitude, neurology, sleep, diet–literally everything…
Then she backs it up with expert guests, data, and personal life examples. This is seriously as good as it gets when it comes to a money love.
If you want to learn more about coming back from the brink of debt, death, and dangerous real-life circumstance…she’s the expert you need in your life, like NOW. We’ve had the incredible privilege to work with her and her amazingly well-developed brand…and I seriously can’t gush enough to do this woman justice.This is seriously as good as it gets when it comes to a money love.Click To Tweet
Well, what are you waiting for? Check it out today.
2) Susan Hyatt’s Go! Podcast is designed specifically to get you UP and GOING each and every Monday morning…and damn…it works.
You’ve got to love the way she’s designed this podcast–to help us listeners blast off the workweek in relentless momentum. If you aren’t familiar with the wonderful Susan Hyatt–she’s an outrageously successful coach, personal development icon, and model of successful entrepreneurship.
Each podcast is packed full of sassy, fun, and intelligent content (that she writes out, too–for all you reading folks). And it’s not all business (she’s a certified Weight Loss Coach too). Plus, Susan’s always up to something on the side–speaking, writing, and guiding you into the life you truly want to have. Follow along and you’ll get an idea of the value she has to offer you.
If you’re in search for advice on taking bold actions (that actually net HUGE results)…
Check out the Go! Podcast today (even if it’s not Monday).
3) Lewis Howes’ School of Greatness Podcast is, well, beyond great.
He’s a Motivational Speaker and Personal Lifestyle Consultant…amongst many other things. Former Pro Athlete (and current world-record holder), New York Times Bestseller, Team USA Handball Athlete, multi-million dollar media company creator…this guy knows how to take a dream and turn it into reality.
Lewis interviews the most, “brilliant business minds, world class athletes, and influential people on the planet.” And this isn’t fluff-talk…we’re talking about incredible minds like Lindsey Stirling, Tucker Max, Larry King (and why he doesn’t text…or want to die), Alanis Morissette, Rob Dyrdek–coming onto his show to talk about their personal perspectives, trials, troubles, and approaches toward achieving greatness.
This is the School of Greatness. And you should follow it today!
4) So you know that Tim Ferriss guy? Author of The 4-Hour Workweek / Chef / Body (and upcoming Tools For Titans)? C’mon, you know–the self-proclaimed “Human Guinea Pig”? Of course you do!
His podcast is a bounty of generosity–everything he discovers in his own life, he shared it with all of us. And there is much MORE than 4 hours of content on there. He uses the platform to accomplish two things…
1) Clash minds with juggernauts of influence, and…
2) Give us incredible advice and resources about everything from exercise, mindset, philosophy, and spirituality–to business, money, bio-hacks, and complete personal freedom.
Can you imagine Tim Ferriss and Tony Robbins talking to each other about…anything? There are THREE interviews with Tony Robbins on this podcast–and you should probably begin with those. Then move on through all the other amazing episodes…Shaun White. Jocko Willink. Edward Norton. Ramit Sethi. Noah Kagan. Rick Rubin. Jamie Foxx. Malcolm Gladwell.Can you imagine Tim Ferriss and Tony Robbins talking to each other about...anything?Click To Tweet
I can’t think of a better person to interview minds such as these–and when he doesn’t have a juggernaut on the show, he’s giving you thoughtful advice on how to kick more ass and live a better life through (sometimes insane) hacks and experiments.
BONUS: Check out the How to Be Tim Ferriss podcast by Freakanomics...it’ll change your mother-loving life!
5 & 6) David Rutherford takes up two of my top personal development podcasts–(I wrote a much longer post (right here) on why I think more women need to explore the Navy Seal’s mindset he outlines in these episodes…)
The first is called FrogLogic Podcast. The second? Navy Seal Radio. If you’re looking for the place where motivation meets military strategy…these are possibly the most inspirational speaking forums on the web.
From a Heisman Trophy Dreamer to a Hippie Art Major to a Navy Seal & Medic…
He’s got over 25 years as a Navy Seal, Medic, Instructor, Tactical Training and Security Expert–and SO much more. Best of all? He’s totally open about all the struggles he endured to reach this pinnacle of life. You wouldn’t think a Navy Seal would be so open about feelings–but he teaches that our emotions are directly linked to our actions…then he shows us how to control that ebb and flow in a more productive (world-saving) way.
7) Preston Smiles is a Personal Freedom Coach–and he is (in my opinion) one of the best in the biz.
While a lot of personal development content focuses on achievement, benchmarks, and progression–Preston takes a very different approach. He focuses on topics unlike anyone else on this list. Vulnerability. Loss. Relationships. Arguments. Owning Things vs. Owning Life. Being Grateful.
…and he touches on all the gritty feelings and topics with the BEST attitude–with LOVE. He unabashedly speaks about love in all of his content, so much that it’s pretty much the core foundation to his entire brand (and, uh, LIFE).
And he does it in the most fun-loving, free, and open way. Preston is as real as it gets… “I believe we’re here to leave the planet better than we found it, and I’m committed to motivating others to join me on that mission, and live their best life NOW.”
If you’re trying to improve–you need Preston in your life right now. Click here for Smiles.
8) Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert is perhaps the coolest podcast title of all time…
So what’s so cool about Elizabeth? Well, she’s a best-selling author–anyone remember that Eat, Pray, Love book–this is THAT wonderful soul. Aside from being one of the most well-known storytellers of our time, she’s also a bit of an entrepreneur, artistic muse, and counselor to entertainers of all kinds.
Through this podcast she’s able to, “help aspiring artists overcome their fears and create more joyfully.”
…and she gets masterminds like Neil Gaiman, Amy Purdy, and Michael Ian Black to come talk to her about creative wherewithal, mastery, and production. It’s not only one of the most enjoyable podcasts out there–but it’ll make you feel inspired enough to truly create something to completion.
When she’s not interviewing the people we all know and love (or next-gen celebs), she gets on the line with ordinary folks, REAL PEOPLE–call center workers and pastors–searching for those elusive qualities that maintain and boost a person’s creative spirit, and she helps these people one-on-one in the pursuit of their artistic dreams.
Give it a listen. I don’t care who you are or what you do–this podcast is riveting.
9, 10, & 11) If you don’t know Deepak Chopra–where in the world have you been, not-born-yet or something?
Deepak is the face, the mind, the body, the soul of alternative medicine. He is new age, traditional, modern, and a classicist–#somehowallatonce. From diet to mindset and everything in between, this guy has a trusted view on what makes for a healthy life…and he’s already shared it with you.
- 80 books (translated into 43 languages) and 22 New York Times best-sellers…
- Named one of TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Heroes and Icons of the Century…
- The World Post and Huffington Post ranked him as the #40 most influential thinker in the world (and #1 in medicine)…
- He has numerous organizations and is a legit Endocrinologist AND Internal Medicine Doc…
Plus, he has THREE podcasts (and I have no idea how he makes time to do all of this stuff). He’s just Deepak.
12) Have you ever heard of The Work of Byron Katie? Well, if not, you should probably know something-it works.
Her mission: to teach people how to end their suffering.
In this podcast, she guides people through The Work, helping them discover that daily stress can radically shift and your life can be changed forever. It’s simple, it’s to the point, and it applies to EVERYONE in the world. And best of all? “…it requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind.”
Byron Katie can help you get over your BS, your relationship problems, and even your road rage. Her landmark psychology is utilized, extensively, in everything from alcohol and drug treatment centers–to pro sports teams–to elementary classrooms. It’s arguably the most dynamic self-help tool in the world today…accessible, understandable, and useable by ALL.
Got a problem? Give her a daily listen–watch your stress melt to gold.
