Ever wish you had all the information you needed to become successful in anything? It’s said if you listen to two hours of audio a day, read 1 book a month, and watch several teaching videos, you’ll become an expert in just 7 years.
I listen to podcasts on a near daily basis. I’ll listen to money tips, entrepreneurial advice, book writing, blogging, and even the occasional TV show podcast. The world of podcasting is huge and growing by the day.
