ME (in just about every conversation) : “….so I was listening to this podcast…”
EVERYONE ELSE : (eye roll)
I have NO shame in admitting my love for podcasts. To those closest to me, they know I talk about my podcast crew like they are old friends. Don’t be surprised if you hear me chatting about Brooke or Guy in my everyday conversation.
I’ll be the first to admit it, that my life is so much better with podcasts.
I’ll pop one on as I drive to a client session, fold laundry or cook dinner. To me, I feel like I am multi-tasking and working on my brain so that I can be a better biz owner and a better human.
