Over the past few years, I have embarked on a transformative journey of personal development, acquiring valuable business knowledge, and improving my financial literacy. One of the primary resources that have played a pivotal role in my growth has been podcasts. I try to walk daily, on average about 30 min – 1 hour walks during which I listen to my favourite podcasts. In this blog post, I want to share my go-to podcasts and how they have contributed to my overall development.

The Diary of a CEO

First on my list is “Diary of a CEO.” This podcast has been my constant companion even before the COVID-19 era. It’s remarkable how it’s soared to the top of the charts and become one of the biggest podcasts out there. Hosted by an inspiring entrepreneur, it combines personal growth, interpersonal skills, health, and longevity—all beautifully applied to the world of business.

From the very first episode I listened to, it was clear that this podcast would be a guide and a source of inspiration in my life. It’s like having a mentor in your ear, guiding you through the ups and downs of both personal and professional life. If you’re looking to strike a balance between your career and well-being, this podcast is a must-listen.

The All-in Podcast

Next up, we have “The All-In Podcast.” Imagine four besties who also happen to be venture capitalists and tech investors sitting down to discuss what’s happening in the tech and investing world. That’s precisely what this podcast is about.

The insights shared on this show have given me invaluable knowledge about investing and venture capital. It’s like eavesdropping on a high-level strategy meeting, and you get to be a fly on the wall. If you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the tech world and understand the broader economic landscape, “The All-In Podcast” should be on your playlist.

My First Million

Last but definitely not least is “My First Million.” This podcast has been a constant companion for me over the past year. What sets it apart is the chemistry between the hosts. Their discussions are not only informative but also incredibly fun to listen to.

The show features true doers in the business world, sharing their journeys, successes, and failures. I’ve personally applied many of the strategies and insights discussed on the show to my own business ideas. If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or simply looking for fresh perspectives on making money, “My First Million” will undoubtedly enrich your life.

Key Learnings and Growth

Through these podcasts, I have gained numerous learnings and experienced substantial growth in various areas of my life. Here are some of the key takeaways:

  • Personal Development: The Diary of a CEO has taught me the importance of self-reflection, setting goals, and maintaining a positive mindset. I have learned how to overcome challenges, build resilience, and develop effective communication skills.
  • Business Knowledge: The All-in Podcast has broadened my understanding of the business landscape. I have learned about successful strategies, the world of venture capital, emerging trends, and the importance of innovation. This knowledge has been invaluable in my professional and financial endeavors.
  • Online Entrepreneurship: My First Million has been an eye-opener in terms of online entrepreneurship. I have learned to spot opportunities, learn from stories of succesful entrepreneurs, and get a lot of inspiration from the ideas and trends that are being discussed.  This podcast has empowered me to believe in myself and just go for it whenever an opportunity arises.


In a world where time is precious, podcasts offer a unique opportunity to learn and grow while multitasking or during your daily commute. These three podcasts—Diary of a CEO, The All-In Podcast, and My First Million—have been instrumental in my personal development, business knowledge, and financial literacy.

Remember, it’s not just about passive listening; it’s about taking those nuggets of wisdom and applying them to your life. Enrich your life by listening to podcasts that make you GROW.
