What a joy

Thank you Ann for being the kind of lighthouse we need! Great guests, great questions, great vibes. And all that in an easily digestible format.

Ann is a Great Leader

We all talk about first time experiences, but often never find accountability to do it. Ann’s mission is building a community that encompasses that and how neuroplasticity will reshape your mindset. First time story telling is a fun addition to the mission!

Most unique podcast out there!

This podcast never gets old. I love listening to each of Ann’s guests because they all have such interesting stories to tell. Every episode is a little different but they all inspire me to not be afraid of stepping out of my comfort zone and give me ideas for new things to try myself. Ann Bernard is a friendly and enthusiastic host herself and I love the concept of her first-times movement. Highly recommend this podcast and checking out her website/blog as well!!
