It’s hard to keep up on industry news and get outside perspective on ways to build better when your hands are often full. Luckily, podcasts are an easy (very) and affordable (free) way to keep current. A podcast is like a radio show; it’s audio you can listen to from your computer, phone, tablet, or other device, but you can do so any time you want. Podcasts are a great way to keep informed about current trends, changes in laws, and procedures, as well as obtaining valuable information on landing better contracts and keeping your organization running lean and mean even when work is slow or the economy takes a plunge.
There are dozens of podcasts out there that can help you in your business and in your life. Here are three we’ve chosen for you this week:
