DB 331: Lewis Howes On The Power of Dreams, Public Speaking, Gratitude & More! (Rebroadcast)
Today, we are rebroadcasting one of our favorite episodes of all time – our interview with Lewis Howes. He is the host of the School of Greatness podcast which has over 100 million downloads and 1000 episodes since it launched in 2013. Lewis was one of the inspirations for Eva to launch the Dream Big Podcast. We would often listen to Lewis Howes and another podcaster Tim Ferriss in the car, and one day Eva asked: “Mom and Dad, why is there not a podcast where a kid interviews amazing people?” And of course, the rest is history. Lewis is more than a podcaster. He is a bestselling author. He was named by The White House and President Obama as one of the top 100 entrepreneurs in the country under 30. And he has been featured on Ellen, The Today Show, The New York Times, and in other major media outlets. Eva and Lewis had an amazing conversation which we actually recorded on video -- so in addition to being able to listen to the interview on your favorite podcast platform -- you can also watch the full interview on Youtube.

DB 329: Next Time You Disagree With Your Parents Try This !
Big Dreamers, I want you to think back to a time when your parents asked you to do something that you did not want to do. One when they said it was really important that you complete that task, no matter what. Do you have a memory in mind? Well, in today’s episode, Sophia recalls a story about her older sister, Eva - who I am sure you all remember! - and how she handled such a situation. While it is always good to listen to your parents, it is also never too early to learn how to speak up and assert yourself – as long as you remain respectful, of course! In this episode, our story will show how the strong-willed Eva spoke up to reach a compromise with our parents, with an end-result that left everyone involved very happy. Sophia also shares the one lesson she personally learned from this experience and how important it is to stand up for yourself.

DB 325: 3 Big Lies Grownups Tell That Destroy Big Dreams!
We are living in times where social media plays a key role in the current generation's development. We barely remember the time when cell phones, the internet, Amazon, YouTube and Netflix were not available! In today's episode, Sophia and Olga talk about the three common lies that we start believing if we consume a lot of social media, and why being aware, which means being equipped with the remedy against this poison, is an absolute must. Our challenge for you this week, big dreamers is whenever you catch yourself or an adult constantly saying the phrase, I don’t have time, or I can't, or I don't deserve this, stop them or yourself immediately. Better yet, write these down, and say the opposite out loud like I'll find a way, I can, I deserve this. Start the abundance mindset, and tell yourself that life is happening for me and not against me. Tell us all about it at our FB and IG pages, @dreambigpodcast. Enjoy the episode!
