Podcasts have been around since the 1980s, when they were referred to as “audioblogs.” With public Internet access and devices like the iPod, podcasting really took off in 2004. Today you can listen to over 2.5 million podcasts with over 66 million episodes.
People listen to podcasts when they commute to work, travel on trains and airplanes, mow grass, rake leaves, do repairs on their homes and a number of other things. If you’re not into podcasts yet, all you need to do is download an app and start listening. A whole new world will open up to you. You can learn about new and exciting entrepreneurial, investing and personal growth strategies.
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” The time you spend listening to podcast experts can raise you up and help you improve in whatever area you want to learn more about. For example, many podcasts focus on real estate, particularly on real estate investing. Here are what some consider the 10 best.
