My Top Podcasts for Productivity

When I find time on my hands, or if I’m in the car on a long drive headed out to look at property, I’ll often listen to podcasts. It’s a great way to pass the time and feel like I’m either getting smarter, more productive, or relaxing, which can be just as important for one’s success as learning new things.
