I’d recommend her podcasts to any students
Especially high school and college students. I am a college student myself and I found her Getting back on track podcast very helpful as I am struggling with 18 credit hours my first semester along with other projects to prepare for my career. I am grateful for what she has done for the community by making the podcasts and I look forward to listening to more of her podcasts in the future ❤️

Always Get Good Tidbits
I like that Laura touches on both work and home productivity. So many times we hear female podcasters focus just on home productivity. And then the male podcast hosts just focus on work. This is a very good podcast blending productivity for both areas of my life.

So helpful for my business and daily life
I love listening to the tips, tricks, and tools from this podcast. I love listening to women share how they make the most out of their time. Aside from learning a lot from other businesses, I get to apply many to my own, plus it keeps me entertained.

Great knowledge and motivation here
Laura is an amazing podcaster with endless amounts of information to share. She is incredibly approachable and very present and easy to reach in person. She really cares about her listener, it's clear, and is very much a role model for me. Thanks, Laura, and please keep the great work coming!

A Must-Listen!
I have been listening to The Productive Woman podcast for several years now. I think this is a podcast that would benefit any woman, regardless of career or age. Laura openly shares both personal and career struggles, which are more often than not the very same things that I struggle with, and offers solutions. Laura is a podcast host that truly cares about the success of her listeners. I recommend this to everyone I can!

You’re afraid to record?
Your introduction podcast basically gave me all the reasons to not listen. Sad

Amazing advice! Incredible podcast!

It’s great
I had to write this because I am listening to the episode about perfectionism. Laura’s knowledgeable and has such a calm manner of delivering the podcast. It’s very easy to listen to. She is also easy to relate to. She is more focused on work and has great content. I’m still listening to early episodes. Great food for thought

Work from home professional
Love your podcast, it’s relevant and practical. As a work from home professional nurse, it is harder to find motivational and productivity encouragement and educational resources. Really meets a need for me.

Good podcast
But just too much sponsorship in the beginning of the episodes. Move it to the end or make it shorter!

Relevant and Well-researched Topics
I am a lawyer and a mom of five who has greatly benefited from The Productive Woman podcast. I appreciate the diverse professions and perspectives of the guests and their willingness to share both what works for them as well as what they do when it all just gets away from them. I am really a fan of the detailed show notes which I generally consult before listening. That allows me to view or download any resources so that I can make use of those that interest me shortly after listening. Great job, Laura!

Not your average productivity podcast, it’s so much more!
Not your average productivity podcast, it’s so much more! Laura is insightful, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She delivers amazing tips, ideas and practical knowledge that can be put into action immediately. Her voice is easy to listen to, she is honest and often shares personal experiences which I find helpful. She is one of the podcasts I listen to as soon as it comes out and have been known to re-listen again and again as I always learn something else or am reminded of something I forgot. You will learn something, a new way to do something or to think about something. Her sponsors are very well chosen and from my point of view chosen to add value to what she is sharing/teaching. Be sure to add this to you must listen to list, you will not be sorry.

Motherly voice and really supportive topics
I just found this podcast and I’m really loving it. I’m making an effort to manage my time, tasks, and schedule with a focus on my relationships and my happiness. This podcast is like having my mom in the room giving me really interesting points to consider and actionable steps. I listen to this podcast while doing my household chores or when driving. It’s a podcast I feel comfortable listening to out loud while my kids play nearby.

Making a life that matters, not just "getting things done."
I love the perspective Laura brings to this podcast. It's not just about "getting things done." (That's not a knock on David Allen, because I am a fan of his.) Laura talks about making a life that matters. To me, that factor is missing from a lot of productivity advice. I love hearing from someone like myself who is a mother and grandmother balancing family and a professional career. Some of the episodes are hit and miss, but Laura's overall perspective is wonderful to hear.

Recommended Podcast
The Productive Woman has become one of my favorite podcasts and is in constant rotation in my playlist. Laura’s down-to-earth demeanor and thought-provoking topics help me think about things in a different way, and encourage me to be more intentional with how I spend my time. I just wish I could write and drive at the same time because I am constantly hearing nuggets that I want to jot down. Thank goodness for show notes. 😉 Keep up the great work, Laura!

TPW fan
I am very grateful for Laura and TPW podcast. I am currently on episode 108 and determined to get to the current episode. The podcasts are very useful to me. Laura truly provides the encouragement in managing life, stress, and stuff. I modified and adopted her closing remarks into personal mantra “I am creating life that matters and extending myself grace in the process”. I look up to Laura as a role model. I value the practical tips that she and her guests provide. Listening to the TPW podcast has been part of my daily routine. I listen to TPW during my commute on weekdays or while doing chores on holidays/weekends. Laura, thank you very much for investing time, energy, and resources in creating The Productive Woman podcast.

Great for busy women all ages and stages
I have started listening this podcast during a wave of blues with my first baby and it helped me tremendously to overcome the pressure of being a new mom and work and life itself. Thank you for the great podcast that feels like your friend is giving you genuine advise and guidance.

Best Podcast Ever!
I love this podcast and the related Facebook community. Both inspire me to pause for a moment and reflect on what I am currently doing and what I might do differently to help me be more productive. I learn something new with each podcast episode. Thank you!

Such Great Advice
I love podcasts that are real, fun, and provide useful tips and info. This podcast is all three. It's clear that Laura puts a lot of time and effort and love into her work. As a busy working mom, I appreciate the tips and to also know that I am not alone. Thank you for your podcast!

Generous help
Thank you for sharing your insight and experience as you streamline your work life balance and how to maximize your time. I especially enjoyed the recent episode on how to assess and review your business and life mid year. Your transparent sharing of your life and business persoanlly really helps. I appreciate the example. Thanks again for sharing what you know and what you are learning.

Well Worth the Time
I learn something of value on every episode. As a woman in the trenches of life, Laura McClellan is engaging, practical, and real in the help and advice she gives. I wouldn't describe myself as a productivity buff or anything, but I truly look forward to every episode. I highly recommend this show!

I want to like this podcast, I really do
The guests are strange though; they seem like random people she meets and twists their arm into coming on her podcast. The voice tones of everyone are so DULL it makes it extremely difficult to listen to this. More vocal dynamism would be good, as well as a bit of a faster pace. Perhaps McClellan's podcast here could benefit from some structure, or if I am to be fully honest -- maybe she should consider quitting this podcast and focusing on her other parts of her life as running a podcast is not really a necessary thing in life, and from the bits she drops here and there, it sounds like her personal life/relationship could use some maintenance and she has an already full professional life. I mean that as kindly as possible. Sometimes when people are filling their lives full of random things like podcasts and writing novels, etc. it is because there are problems they do not want to address elsewhere in their lives, things they need to get done there which are not going to be fun but are really the important things in life. I wish Laura McClellan well in whatever she does, but I'll be unsubscribing.

Amen! Finally a productivity podcast for the rest of us!
I listen to a lot of productivity podcasts and most are good but hosted by self-employed men without families. Laura offers ideas and solutions that work for people whose lives are often shaped by other factors including kids, bosses, and an office job. She is refreshingly honest and unpretentious. I think of her as someone who is further along in life's journey and can offer me great wisdom.

The Productive Woman podcast.
Each week I look forward to hearing what new topics or guests Laura will include on her show. Each week, I gain valuable tips and strategies--but more important--new ways of thinking about "making a life that matters." I take away ideas and insights that I use to reframe my days or to apply for everyday tasks or long term goals. I'm so impressed by Laura's generosity of spirit, and I'm grateful she's sharing all of this collective wisdom with her listening guests. Definitely a highlight of my week!

So Amazing!
I am at a pivotal point in my life as an entrepreneur, developing executive leader, and as a mother and wife. I have been listening to this podcast for around 6 months and Laura has helped me to bring all of these parts and pieces of my life to a meaningful nucleus. She is insightful, helpful, and actionable. Thank you Laura!!

Always inspiring!
Some days it is easier to gravitate to the mean of mediocrity....not doing anything all weekend that is productive, meaningful or joyful. A waste. So I've found listening to Laura on Thursday or Friday wipes out the grind/grime from work and resets my brain to finding the best use of my limited time off, and this leads to making my life matter to me. Amazing hints and things to think about. I feel like Laura is my own personal reference librarian or google master. She sorts through the junk and finds the gems. Brilliant!

Encouraging and Real
I've been listening to the TPW podcast for about 5 months now, and it has been such an encouragement. When I first started listening, I felt stuck in my life and was desperate for some sound advice as well as practical tips to get unstuck and move forward. I'd been listening to several productivity related podcasts before I found TPW, and while they were upbeat and encouraging, they seemed too "rah rah" and I felt they focused more on how to be productive but didn't equally cover why. They all felt superficial. That's where Laura's Podcast came in. It was a breath of fresh air because she sounded so genuine and open. She was honest and real. Her show felt human. Her podcast is well-produced but not so broadcast-y that it's intimidating. She makes it clear that productivity is a tool for living a life that matters, and that is a message I need to be reminded of time and time again. Her podcast helped me realize that chasing productivity for the sake of productivity is ironically the short-cut to burn-out. After a month of listening, I heard that there was an opening for the Mastermind groups she facilitates, and I immediately jumped at the opportunity. I've spent 3 months with 5 wonderful women who encouraged, coaxed, reminded, challenged me to meet my goals, and I've gained clarity! I've started taking steps to being unstuck and I can't wait to gain momentum! Thanks for this platform Laura. Your dedication and hard work is helping women of all walks of life to create impactful and meaningful lives! Even my husband appreciates you and your podcast because of the change he sees in me! :P

Insightful and down-to-earth
I have been listening for a year (sorry it's taking me so long to write a review!) and there is rarely an episode that I don't find useful and relevant. I often share Laura's tips with friends and colleagues. I very much appreciate Laura as a woman who has achieved so much in her career and is generous enough to share her insights with her listeners. A must-listen podcast for all those - women and men - who want to live a fuller, more meaningful life.

Too Long, Some Strange Guests
I used to love this podcast and I was so happy to find a female in the productivity podcast world to listen to! (so tired of dudes.) However, over the last few weeks the podcasts just seem to drag on- this information could be presented in half the time. In fact, I even put it on 1.5x speed! Secondly, her guests lately have been... strange. I had to turn a recent podcast of hers off with a professional organizer when the woman started talking about how she serves her teenage son BREAKFAST IN BED. Every day. She says it's because he has ADD. Uh- what? I literally couldn't listen anymore. It was so weird. Before that she had a woman on from India who was incredibly woo woo- no facts, no science. I listen to the podcast to get productivity, time management and organization skills- not a daily dose of woo. Going to continue listening to see if things get better, though. I have enjoyed many of the podcasts.

My favorite podcast!
I've been listening to Laura's podcasts for quite awhile now but usually in the car. I always mean to come leave a review but never seem to get around to it. Today I finished listening to one in the house and decided that I wasn't going to put it off any longer. Not only is the information provided in each podcast valuable and helpful but Laura's kindness and genuineness shines through and makes me feel like I'm listening to a friend. As a lifelong researcher myself, I appreciate the time she puts into this aspect of the podcasts. Thank you, Laura. Your efforts are appreciated.
