Now to the show.

Today, I share my conversation with Ann Bernard, creator of https://365firstschallenge.com/.

Ann is a Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corp and we spend a fair bit of time talking about her experience in the military.

We discuss what it’s like for a woman in the Marine Corp.

We also talk about building a business and what it’s like to start one from the ground up.

We then talk about the movement that Ann has created, namely, the #365FirstsChallenge.

Today was a great show for anyone looking to learn about pushing themselves to start living life. I highly enjoyed today’s show. 

Don’t forget to listen to the end of the show for the action items that Ann left us.

If you do those action items you’ll find yourself a better person, and living a more full life.

About the Podcast

The Hard Thing Podcast
The Hard Thing podcast is focused on helping people improve their lives by learning how to do hard things.

Listen as I interview guests who have overcome average by doing hard things. Each of us has to go up against difficult challenges, but it's not the challenge that defines you. It's your overcoming of the challenge. I'll try and extract the methods used to do hard things so that average people like you and me can replicate their success.
