Business professionals spend 47 hours a week at work, 52 minutes a day commuting, and 42 hours a year stuck in traffic jams.

Our work days are longer and our free time is shorter.

But even on a tight schedule, it’s crucial to find new ways to stay relevant in your industry, keep up on business trends, and learn from other professionals.

Podcasts are the solution. Now you can be productive while you are stuck in your car or on the treadmill.
