Motivational Podcast Every 20 Something Should Listen To



I love learning and podcasts are one of my favorite ways to gain inspiration and learn. I love how accessible they are and that they can be listened to while you’re doing other things. There are so many different types and each one will inspire you. Here are some of my favorites:

The Make Money Your Honey Podcast

While I know this doesn’t sound motivational, learning more about money and personal finances motivated me to try to figure mine out. The podcast is hosted by Amanda Abella and she is a financial blogger. She interviews different professionals in the field and makes all of the information understandable. Until I listened to her podcast, I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about my personal finances.

Girlboss Radio

This is probably one of my favorite podcasts. It is hosted by Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal and Girlboss Media, and she interviews different successful career women. Each woman has had an interesting career and has created success in her own way. After each episode, I feel energized to master something new or explore a new hobby.  The part that I truly love about this podcast is that with every guest, Sophia asks them what their Girlboss moment of the week was. I love hearing all of the different answers and it just shows how everyone views success in different ways.

Lady Lovin’

I have been a fan of the Lady Lovin’ Podcast since it started. It is hosted by Jilly Hendrix, Lo Bosworth, and Gretta Titelman and it is possibly one of the most hilarious and relatable podcasts I have ever listened to. They always interview interesting people who are doing amazing things, which is inspiring. After every episode, I always think about what I want to do next or how I can improve- for me this is a type of motivation. Sometimes they talk about topics that are so relevant and I love listening to their advice; it feels like you’re getting advice from older siblings. If you need a good laugh and want to get inspired, then this is definitely the podcast for you.

The Luscious Hustle Podcast

This is an awesome podcast for anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship. It is hosted by Betsy Milne and Laura Milne, and they bring a unique perspective to entrepreneurship. They really focus on designing the life you want and how entrepreneurship can do that for determined individuals. They interview amazing guests, and I love learning about everything they discuss. I always have a list of things I want to think about or work on when I’m done listening to an episode, and I don’t even have a side hustle!

Almost 30 Podcast

This is a phenomenal podcast for anyone interested in health, wellness, entrepreneurship, relationships, and more! It is hosted by Krista Williams and Lindsey Simcik, and they are HILARIOUS! They have very honest conversations in each episode, and I love it. All of the topics they discuss are relevant to anyone in the 20’s or 30’s, so don’t be afraid of the title. No matter what the topic of the episode is, I always get motivated to improve or do something in my life. Another cool thing about this podcast, is that they are traveling to different cities in the US and Canada to host events and meet listeners. When I lived in LA I was fortunate enough to attend a few of the events, and they are AMAZING. There’s great energy in the room and you will meet lots of like-minded people.

Becoming Fearless Style Collective Podcast

Last but not least, this is a great podcast for bloggers, influencers, entrepreneurs, or anyone who’s interested in making a significant life change. It is hosted by Annie Spano, the creator of Style Collective, and she interviews different Style Collective members in each episode. She always talks about values and how people ended up in the career or path that they’re on now, which I love. I was so motivated by an episode that it helped me make the final decision to quit my job and move to a different city- not kidding. This is a great podcast for gaining inspiration and self-development.

These are some of my favorite motivational podcasts, and I hope that you enjoy them too!

  1. Oh my gosh, the Becoming Fearless podcast is one of my favorites! I’m definitely going to have to check out a few of these! I’m currently loving Kesteel Jenkin’s podcast Conscious Chatter and Julie Solomon’s podcast the Influencer Podcast. I drive an hour to and from work so these are definitely keeping me sane 💕
