3 Great Lessons Walt Disney Wanted Every Big Dreamer To Learn
How many rejections are you willing to take before giving up on your dream? In today's episode, Sophia and Olga talk about the visionary who created the happiest and the most magical place in the world, Walt Disney. He is proof that even if you get more NOs than YES, about 300 to be precise, if you have the vision, will and determination, you will make your dream a reality. Sophia also shares the most memorable moment from her recent Disneyland trip, and the 3 important lessons we can all learn from Walt Disney.  We challenge all you big dreamers listening to try something you are afraid of or know nothing about— expect rejections, cook up new strategies and try again. Repeat as many times as needed! Take notice of how people’s reactions differ when you try different methods to get your desired result. One such strategy is to imagine yourself in the other person’s shoes: what can you say or do that will get the result you want but also be of benefit to others?

Simon Sinek On The Importance Of Starting With Why! (rebroadcast)
We are on vacation this month, so decided to rebroadcast some of our favorite interviews from the past.  Fortunately with over 300 original episodes, there are many amazing interviews to choose from.  This week we are sharing with you Eva’s interview with Simon Sinek, best-selling author of “Start With Why” -- which we consider a must-read and offer our highest recommendation.  Simon believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together. Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Simon teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Simon is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.  For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/308
Kechi Okwuchi, America’s Got Talent Finalist, On Why Big Dreamers Must Know Thyself (Rebroadcast)
Kechi Okwuchi is a singer and motivational speaker. She was one of the two survivors in the Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 crash on December 10, 2005 that claimed 107 lives, 60 of which were her schoolmates.  Kechi spent the next seven months in the hospital with a majority of that time in intensive care and has endured more than 100 surgeries. She credits her faith, family, friends, and singing for keeping her going. She eventually moved to America in 2007 for reconstructive surgery and later enrolled in the University of St. Thomas where she graduated summa cum laude in 2015.   We first learned about Kechi’s story when she auditioned on America’s Got Talent in 2017 as a singer, and finished the competition as a finalist.  She later participated in America's Got Talent: The Champions in 2019, where Simon Cowell gave her the golden buzzer, sending her straight to the final.  We fell in love with Kechi’s talent and story, and were thrilled when she agreed to be a guest on the podcast.  It’s one of our favorite interviews ever, so we decided to rebroadcast it since it’s been over 3 years since it was first published.    For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/307
The Power Of Compliments. And We Can Prove It!
This weekend, we went to an art, yoga and music festival called Lightning It A Bottle (LIB) at Buena Vista Lake, just outside of Bakersfield, California. It was our first time camping at a festival like this with tens of thousands of people, and needless to say, our family saw people wearing outfits and expressing themselves in ways that you don’t typically see at your local CVS. Sophia loves to give compliments and so as we were walking through the festival, she would constantly be stopping people and telling them how much she liked their hat, sunglasses, or dress.. We saw firsthand the power of compliments as she brought such huge smiles to everyone she complimented, and even had a few people gift her the things she complimented them on (as you’ll hear in the episode). You’ll love hearing Sophia and Olga describe our experience at the LIB festival and Sophia issues a challenge to all Big Dreamers that you won’t want to miss!
What Dancing In The Rain Can Teach Us About Life
During a recent visit to grandparents house, Sophia pointed out a quote that adorns a piece of artwork in their bedroom.  It says: “​​Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.  It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”  At a family dinner one night, we started talking about the meaning of this beautiful quote and looked for stories from our own life that were consistent with its meaning.  Olga and Sophia recalled the perfect sequence of events from our recent time in Hawaii.  We thought why not share the story and discuss the meaning of this quote with all you Big Dreamers, which is exactly what you’ll enjoy listening to in Episode 305 of the Dream Big Podcast.   For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/305
My Sister's BIG Day Is Here. 10 Ways I'm Inspired!
This coming weekend, Eva will be celebrating her bat mitzvah.This is an important day in the Jewish tradition as it symbolizes Eva coming of age -- i.e when a child becomes an adult.  At the ceremony, Sophia will be giving a speech on the 10 ways that Eva inspires her.  We thought it would be nice to have Sophia share what she’ll be telling our family at the ceremony with our extended family here at the Dream Big Podcast!  Congrats to Eva on this wonderful milestone.  We are so proud of you!  For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/304
We Saved A Goat (Seriously!) And Learned 3 Life Lessons
We met a sad, lonely goat in Hawaii. It was tied to a small leash all day long.  Even its bleat (the sound goats make) sounded sad.  You’ll hear the full story when you tune into this week’s episode.  Rather than just let the goat be sad, Sophia, Eva and Olga sprung into action and found the goat a new home.  And now the goat is happy.   Not only did we help the goat, but the goat helped us by teaching us 3 important life lessons that Sophia and Olga share in this episode.   For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/303
5 Life Lessons Sophia Learned From Surfing (And Wiping Out)!
We spent the month in April in Hawaii.  Practically every day we were in the water and watched in amazement the surfers catching and riding waves.  We knew the trip would not be complete without surf lessons!  So we found an amazing instructor not too far from where we were staying and thankfully he agreed to also train Sophia, who is a good swimmer but only six years old right now!  In this episode, Sophia and Olga share our family’s experience surfing for the very first time, as well as important life lessons that we learned.  Without spoiling the episode, we are happy to share that Sophia did stand up and rode many waves on her very first outing.  And Olga and Sophia both loved surfing so much that they just had another lesson this week.  So perhaps you will be hearing more stories in the future about Sophia catching waves.  In the meantime, enjoy this fun and enlightening episode about Sophia’s first surf lesson!  For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/302
Meet Eva's sister Sophia and mom Olga. 5 Fun Facts!
Today's episode is a huge one, and we are very excited about it! As you all know, Eva started Dream Big when she was just  seven years old back in 2016.  Eva’s little sister Sophia was born in 2015, and literally grew up listening to Eva podcasting and dreaming big that one day she would be a podcaster too.  That day has arrived!  Sophia will be turning seven in June, so this is right about the same age as when Eva started podcasting. You already know and love Sophia from our Silly Sophia segment! Well today, you are going to learn a lot more about Sophia and get reacquainted with the woman that brought both of them into this world, Eva and Sophia’s amazing mom Olga Karpman.   Enjoy this episode where Olga and Sophia share fun facts about each other, and share their exciting vision for the future of Dream Big.  If you miss Eva already, don’t worry!  She’ll still be involved with the podcast and will be making appearances too.  Enjoy this episode!  For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/301
Celebrating 300 Episodes & The Miracle Of Grace.
Wow!  We are at 300 episodes of the Dream Big Podcast.  Thank you all for being part of this incredible journey.  Eva launched the podcast when she was 7 years old and we are excited to start introducing Eva’s sister Sophia (who will be turning 7 in June) to all you Big Dreamers.  Yes, Sophia has been making us all laugh with Silly Sophia jokes for many years now, but she plans to get even more involved in coming episodes so stay tuned!  Sophia is a bundle of energy and joy (and as you already know, hilarious) -- and I’m sure you will all love her participation in Dream Big.  In this episode, Eva also shares a story from an incredible hike we did this past week that you won’t want to miss.  Thank you again for celebrating 300 episodes of Dream Big with us!    For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/300
Every Single Human Has THIS In Common
One of Eva’s core beliefs is that every human has a unique gift to share with the world.  Yet, there is one reality that we all undeniably have in common.  For each and every one of us, there are 24 hours in a day.  The people who realize their potential and make their dreams come true understand that those hours are precious, and refuse to squander the majority of their free time on distractions.  Eva shares how she has been spending her free time recently (hint: it’s not been binge watching shows on Netflix) and challenges all Big Dreamers to be mindful of how they are spending their time.   For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/299
Dreaming Big in Las Vegas
We’ve spent the majority of our time in the past few months in Big Bear Lake, a mountain village a few hours outside of Los Angeles.  The beauty is in nature -- the snow capped mountains, the majestic trees, and of course the stunning lake.  The town itself is charming, but as you can imagine there are no tall buildings and just a small selection of restaurants and shops in the charming village.  That’s probably why it came as a complete shock to our system when we decided to visit Las Vegas this past weekend.  Turns out, it is only a 3 hour drive from Big Bear Lake.  So we decided to go on an adventure.   Eva and Sophia were simply amazed that in this barren desert, Big Dreamers had built a pyramid, New York, Paris, Venice, and of course if you’ve been to Vegas you know the list goes on and on.  In this episode, Eva shares some highlights from the trip, and how it inspired her more than ever to Dream Big.  I must say it was surreal to take our kids to see one of the great illusionists of our time, David Copperfield, who Olga and I remember from our own childhood.   Enjoy the episode!   For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/298
