We have a saying at Advoco, “Leaders are readers.” Well not only is that the case, but leaders are also listeners too. The internet is full of podcasts on everything from leadership and business development to knitting and kayaking. To help you navigate, our team has worked on compiling a list of nine blogs we are listening to now. Whether you are looking for money tips, interesting facts, or leadership thoughts, we have something for you. (Please note: Podcast descriptions are based on descriptions that appear on their respective websites and audio feeds.)
