1. The Life Coach School Podcast by Brooke Castillo

The Life School Podcast by Brooke Castillo truly deserves to be at the top of this list. It is, needless to say, incredible. Brooke produces consistent, high-quality content that teaches you the necessary skills and mindsets you’ll need to help your clients get the impactful results they’re looking for.

Not only does this podcast help life coaches help their clients, it also helps you to get the results you’re looking for in your life. This podcast will help you gain control of your emotions, adjust your mindset, and gain clarity on your direction in life.
