This podcast is what I would categorize under all-purpose motivation in that it is not specifically geared toward entrepreneurs but more toward people in general who want to accomplish their life goals and are seeking a little bit of direction.

I have spoken to Laurel personally and she is very encouraging and really believes in helping people realize their entrepreneurial goals. Her podcast has new episodes every Thursday and can be heard on iTunes and other popular platforms like Stitcher radio and Windows phones.
