Becoming Fearless Podcast

By Annie Spano

Welcome to Becoming Fearless, a podcast about what it takes to say yes to yourself when you are at the intersection of staying the path or taking a leap of faith. I’m Annie Spano, a multi-passionate entrepreneur who became fearless in 2016 by saying yes to the unknown so I could start living my fullest potential and inspire other women to do the same. Tune in for empowering conversations about saying yes to your dreams, finding your authentic self, living your values, and becoming the best version of yourself. Are you ready to start your journey to becoming fearless?
