Learn while you drive, that’s the aspect of podcasts that I really love. Driving to and from appointments is generally a complete waste of time. The options for making use of that slack time other than quiet contemplation are:
- listen to music
- listen to the radio
- listen to podcasts
It’s definitely not ok to be driving and reading emails, texting or watching videos but if I’m listening to a podcast that is giving me ideas to implement in our business or that I can share with our clients then it is not so much time wasted as time invested.
Here are the ecommerce related podcasts that I regularly listen to and recommend for owners of online stores and shopping cart websites.
This would be my favourite ecommerce podcast currently, the guests are good, the format of the show is compact and its easy to follow the ideas presented.
