When one of our co-founders peri was deep in the newborn phase with her son Sebastian, Podcasts became her saving grace as a way to exercise her mind out of the day to day cycle of diaper changes, feedings and naps.
Podcasts helped Peri to work on her personal and business development, while navigating motherhood for the first time. They also helped to inspire and motivate her when she eventually made the transition back to work.
Today, Peri shares with us her top 5 most inspiring podcasts that she listened to throughout the first few months as a new parent and beyond.
