Hey there, reader! I hope 2020 has started off treating you well. I kicked off the new year back home in Florida with my family, then drove back up to Connecticut for a month of relaxation and recharging.
My goal for this year is to bring you more recommendations, more reviews, and to keep you updated about my family life - in June my husband is officially getting out of the Navy and we will begin civilian life some place new (wherever he can find his next job). I want to remember everything I'm feeling, everything I'm doing, and everything I'm reading during this time. I hope you will follow along this ride with me.
Today I want to share with you my favorite podcasts that I hope inspire you and help you to crush all of your goals this year, whether they're marriage related, work related, or dream related. I love these podcasts and I hope you do too.
What are some of your favorites? Let me know in the comments.
Committed - Committed is an interview style podcast with host Jo Piazza, author of How to Be Married. She asks a diverse group of couples to share the challenges they face while married. I've heard some great advice and some heartbreaking stories that made these couples stronger than ever. As a newly married wife, I find these episodes helpful and helps me remember that we promise to love each in sickness as well as in health.
Favorite Episode: I Need Help
You're Not Getting Any Younger - Host Jen Glantz asks each of her guests to complete the following sentence: You're not getting any younger, so... Each episode is a small jolt of inspiration to help you keep up the good fight, whether you're having trouble dating, getting your dream job, or just plain old feel stuck. Jen's solo episodes are also filled with advice stemmed from her personal experience as a small business owner.
Favorite Episode: Instructions for When You Feel Stuck in Life (Cara Thomas of Serenflipity)
88 Cups of Tea - Yin asks thoughtful questions that really get to the heart of why we write and how storytelling helps shape the world around us. Her guests are the most amazing writers. Even if you don't write like I do, I know these episodes will leave you feeling inspired to follow your dreams.
Favorite Episode: Maggie Stiefvater: Staying Motivated During Challenging Times
Goal Digger - Jenna Kutcher is super popular on Instagram. Her lifestyle blog and photography business are absolutely killing it. If you ever want to learn more about what it is to start your own business, her podcast is where you should start.
Favorite Episode: The Secret to Keeping Your Customers with Emily Ley
Writer's Who Don't Write - Jeff Umbro and Kyle Craner are hilarious, insightful, and super curious with each of their guests. They're writers who don't write, and ask each of their author guests how they manage to keep writing, even when life and writer's block kicks in. They've been on a pretty long hiatus, but will come back this spring, so you have plenty of time to catch up the amazing episodes.
