One of the things I’ve always enjoyed doing is listening to other people’s stories. I grew up watching Oprah and Ellen, who both have incredible stories as individuals and have had amazing people share their stories through their platforms. This year I’ve watched a lot of YouTube channels that are based around learning what someone else’s life is like (I used to only listen to YouTube for music). I’ve learned everything from people’s routines (morning and night), financial advice, how to cook meals (like how to bake panko chicken tenders), how to stay healthy, blogging advice, to even watching family channels. P.S. Almost everything I’ve learned about blogging, I learned from YouTubers and the rest I learned from Bloggers. I watch these videos almost every morning (unless I’m in the mood to listen to music) while getting ready. I’ve even started getting into podcasts where I’ll listen to podcasters interview women business owners/bloggers share their challenges and struggles in business. I listen to these while cooking dinner and doing the dishes. It helps to pass the time, learn something and make daily routines not daunting.
My point in sharing all this with you, is that we can all learn something from people’s lives. There is someone you can relate to online who is going through the same things as you. They can teach you something new about life whether it’s how to cook chicken, learn a new skill or how to face a struggle. We can all find the time to listen and learn from other people, especially if it’s someone we can relate to.
Here are some of my favorite YouTubers & Podcasters below J
YouTube channels: The Financial Diet, HealthNut Nutrition, Haley Paige (lifestyle, blogging & family), Allison Lindstrom (blogging), BuonaPappa (food-chicken tender recipe on their channel), Tweaked Style, OWN, The Ellen Show
My Three favorite Podcasts: The Influencer Podcast with Julie Solomon, The Becoming Fearless Podcast with Annie Spano-both speak to entrepreneurs of their success and challenges with business. And just for fun I love listening to Good Mourning Nancy-with Gracie & Abby who talk about horror movies.
