We’re constantly running between different roles as women—mom, entrepreneur, wife, etc. and it’s nice to listen to those podcasts that build you up and inspire you. While fitting in reading time can be tough, a podcast can be a great way to fit some motivation into our everyday! Here are 7 we love:
