Top 5 Podcast Shows for Inspiration

Top 5 Podcast Shows for Inspiration

For those who don’t know me personally, I’ll tell ya now, I’m a personal development junkie. I just love this stuff. I love learning and getting to know myself more and more each day. Podcasts are a GREAT way to boost your mood, learn more about yourself, and to improve your mindset each and every day. Even if you aren’t a personal development weirdo like me, you still should try out Podcasts.

There are so many different genres of shows available, ranging from comedy to real-life crime. Trust me, whatever you want to learn about, there’s a show for you. I listen to Podcasts when I’m walking my pup or driving to work, as I have a long commute. Without further ado.. here are my TOP 5 favourite Podcast shows!


The Goal Digger Podcast by Jenna Kutcher:

For all of my fellow blogger girls reading this, I doubt an introduction is necessary here! Jenna Kutcher is basically a blogger GOD. Jenna, the host of the Goal Digger Podcast, is a self-made millionaire who is a professional Blogger, Photographer, Educator & Social Media Influencer.

In this Podcast, which airs new episodes weekly, Jenna teaches & encourages others to pursue their dreams and how to excel in business. Everything I know about SEO & increasing traffic, is thanks to this Podcast, hands down. She is also a fan of interviewing other girl bosses, who are just as inspiring as she is.

One thing I completely LOVE about Jenna is that not only is she smart, but she is SO REAL. She tells it how it is & never tries to be someone else. Her genuine approach, relatable personality and upbeat messages are all super refreshing.  If you are a blogger, entrepreneur, or business woman & have not heard of Jenna, you NEED her & this show in your life right now!

My favourite episodes:

  • 029: 10 Ways to Create Content Calendar
  • 054: Using Pinterest to 10x Your Website Traffic
  • 177: The Entrepreneur’s Guide To SEO: How-to, Hacks, and Tricks to Get Traffic

Style Your Mind by Cara Alwill Leyba:


style your mind podcast

This show is BY FAR my favourite (as much as I love the others, too). I’m completely obsessed with Cara. She is a  Master Life-Coach, Author, and Blogger, and she is all about inspiring boss babes to be the best version of themselves. Her motto for the Style Your Mind Podcast is: “Style Your Mind is a podcast for success-driven women who want to design their thoughts, empower themselves, and build a beautiful life and career.”

Her weekly episodes include interviews & motivational, thought-provoking conversations with her readers that will elevate your mindset, 100%. I accredit a lot of my mindset shift to this podcast. You guys HAVE to check her out. If you enjoy her Podcasts, she also has several amazing books (her newest is, Like She Owns The Place), blog posts & even a Facebook group, which are all just as inspiring and uplifting.

My favourite episodes:

  • 062: How to Be UNAPOLOGETIC and Stand In Your POWER!
  • 112: Success Rituals for Abundance
  • 048: How to Get into a HIGH VIBRATION and Attraction Amazing Things Into Your Life

The Daily Boost by Scott Smith:


daily boost podcast

The Daily Boost Podcast is a daily (Monday-Friday), 9 minute, motivational boost to get your day started on the right foot. I like that these episodes are quick & to the point.

After listening to an episode from this show, I often find myself questioning societal norms that we have conditioned ourselves to believe. Scott not only provides unique insight on challenging societal norms, but with his upbeat and funny personality, he gives you quick & easy personal development strategies to implement into your day-to-day life. Definitely worth checking out when you need a little motivational boost.

My favourite episodes:

  • 058: Stop Learning. Start Doing.
  • 097: What’s Your Life Purpose
  • 005: Permission To Be Yourself

The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast by Lauryn Evarts & Michael Bosstick:

the skinny confidential podcast

The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast is hosted by this cute and hilarious couple, Lauryn Evarts & Michael Bosstick. They are both Entrepreneurs & Brand Builders. Lauryn has a fantastic lifestyle blog, called The Skinny Confidential.

New podcast episodes are aired each Tuesday. On this podcast, which is light, funny and honest, Lauryn & Michael host interviews & discuss wellness, business, mindset, relationships & blogging tips. Definitely the podcast to choose if you want a light-hearted, yet still motivational show to listen to. Lauryn is GOALS & it’s nice to hear a male point of view on certain topics. The bickering between the two of them is also one of my guilty pleasures. Check them out!

My favourite episodes:

  • 143: Paul Fishman: How To Self Love, Ending Negative Self Talk, How To Be Confident & The Blame Game
  • 119: Self-Care 101 with Lauryn Evarts- Tips on Morning Routines, Self-Care, and Living your Best Day
  • 077: Tony Robbins, An Extraordinary Quality of Life

The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes:

the school of greatness podcast

I am a HUGEEEE fan of Lewis Howes. His story is absolutely amazing. Lewis is an Author, Entrepreneur & former Professional Football Player. Listening to his story about his past not only inspires me to be better, but it makes me trust him even more. He had his fair share of struggles in his past (trauma, learning disability, sports injury, etc.) BUT instead of crumbling, Lewis used these experiences to grow stronger and has now built a legacy around changing his life.

Episodes on The School of Greatness podcast are sometimes solo chats with Lewis himself, and some are interviews featuring world-class game changers, such as Tony Robbins, Julianne Hough & Jack Canfield. Out of the 5 shows mentioned so far, this is probably the podcast for you if you are looking for motivation that has an entrepreneurial or health & fitness approach. Definitely go give him a listen!

My favourite episodes:

  • 245: Eric Thomas: Prepare for Greatness & Believe in Yourself
  • 019: The Power of The Mind (And How I Think)
  • 208: 7 Steps to a Bulletproof Life with Chris Lee

    That’s all for this post, guys! I really hope you try out some of these shows! If you do, please let me know what you think & if they help shift your mindset into a positive one!

    As always, have an awesome week & I will talk to you soon!
