When I was a kid, my dad used to play talk radio shows in the car and it would legitimately make me sick. I couldn’t stand listening to people talk or bicker, the sports ones were the worst. Now,I listen to podcast in my car all the time. I’ve recently taken on this aversion to wasting time.It drives me insane to just sit around and do nothing, which is odd because I feel like I’ve spent most of college doing nothing but I digress. Podcast have become a part of my life in a way I’ve never imagined. I literally listen to them all the time and honestly, it’s just an espresso shot of inspiration when you need it.
I don’t really look on iTunes for a certain type of podcast, I just kind of listen to Podcast that are run by women or websites that I’m interested in. My all time favorite podcast, which I highly recommend you tune into is run by a woman entrepreneur. #GirlBoss Radio, which is ran by NastyGal fonder and author Sophia Amoruso is motivational and really helps me when I start to get too much in my head.
I think that in an effort to show that anyone can do anything partnered with the accessibility of social media, we’ve created an idea that we have to a certain place by a certain time, our mid-twenties. It’s not healthy and it’s been the main source of my worries ever since I was sixteen years old. The beautiful thing about this podcast, is that it kind of dispels the idea that success is an over night thing. Each of the women interviewed on the podcast has a different story to success and it’s just calming to be reminded that there is no one path to success, nor is there one definition of success.
#GirlBoss Radio, which I’m listening to right now, is solely about successful women and how they got to where they are. It’s amazing. I love hearing how other people got to where they are and why they ended up where they were. It’s ran by Sophia Amoruso, founder of NastyGal and all around inspiration. It’s just really interesting to hear these women, some who I’ve never heard of but others that I haven’t, and their life story. The most important lesson I’ve learned from listening to this podcast, is that even when you get to where you want to be in life, there are still ups and downs.
Though Sophia Amoruso, is most widely known as the founder of the fashion website NastyGal and for her book GirlBoss, the podcast includes women from all professions. Including Jessica Williams, who was on the Daily Show, Suzy Baitz, who founded Poo~Pourri, which is something you should keep in your bathroom and Charlize Theron, who is just a living goddess. Honestly, you have to listen to this podcast, it’s amazing and is really the perfect thing if you’re feeling uninspired.
