We all hit a rut. Sometimes we’re no longer feeling inspired, or maybe we have reached an obstacle in our journey to achieving our ONE Thing that we don’t know how to overcome. The best way to gain some traction and get moving again is by gaining a fresh, new perspective.

Podcasts are a great source for a little pick-me-up. These short, digital shows offer a lot of information that can help us think in new ways and provide motivational boosts that can help us power through our day.

If you’re looking for a bit of a business boost or just something entertaining to listen to during your morning commute, here are five podcasts you need to lay your ears on:
