There is an old saying that "A picture is worth a thousand words” and that’s exactly how we felt when we stumbled across a photo of a young and unknown Jeff Bezos working at an old wooden desk in a run-down office.  Jeff was working on his Big Dream, Amazon.com, which has since become one of the biggest companies in the world and revolutionized e-commerce.  But the headline of the photo is what really gave us the chills:  “Don’...

This episode is inspired by the great Mel Robbins, who was Eva’s guest way back in episode 47 of the Dream Big Podcast.  We have been closely following Mel’s work ever since, particularly her Youtube and Instagram channels, which are chock-full of amazing content.  Mel recently posted a video on her Instagram entitled “This Split Second Decision Will Change Your Life” --- an intriguing headline so of course we clicked and watched. ...

We just had one of the most incredible weekends visiting our cousins in the San Bernardino mountains during a winter snowstorm.  It was a short trip.  We left our house Saturday morning and were back home before dark on Sunday.  But when we pulled up to our driveway Eva said: “We were only gone for a day?!  It felt like we were gone for a week!!”   It was the same number of hours that we had the weekend prior, but we did 10X more! ...

One of our favorite mentors is Brendon Burchard -- and long-time listeners of the Dream Big Podcast are well aware of our admiration for Brendon given that Eva has shared many of his concepts in prior episodes.  And today, we wanted to share an amazing quote that we heard when Brendon was interviewing another influential thought leader, Dave Hollis.  Specifically, in talking about the need to step out of your comfort zone in order ...

Eva talks a lot about success on the Dream Big Podcast, and she has interviewed many of the most successful people on the planet from Mark Cuban to General Stanely McCrystal and Mel Robbins.  But one common pattern that Eva has noticed from all of her incredible guests is that they readily admit to countless failures along their journey to achieving their big dreams.  We stumbled across a commencement address that Denzel Washington...

We are just a few weeks away from closing out 2020.   In January of this year, none of us could have ever imagined how 2020 would unfold.  In-person schools, camps, sporting events, concerts, extracurricular activities… all CANCELLED.   And even worse, millions of people contracting COVID and the impacts the shutdowns have had on the economy.   With everything we just mentioned, it is easy to see how many will remember 2020 as the ...

Last week, Sophia was overtired and started to have a temper tantrum.  She told us that the only thing that can make her stop crying and cure her sadness was a new toy.  In fact, she said that if we got her this new toy she would never be sad again.  Of course, we all know that getting Sophia a toy would not lead to her everlasting happiness, but in this episode Eva really dives into WHY money and the material possessions it can bu...

As parents, we have worked very hard to eliminate phrases like “That’s impossible” and “I can’t do it” from our kids’ vocabulary.    Turns out with the word IMPOSSIBLE -- you can just add a space and an apostrophe, and IMPOSSIBLE becomes I’M POSSIBLE.   This idea certainly hit home with the US election earlier this month, in which Kamala Harris became the first woman and person of color to be elected Vice President.     Let’s not f...

One of the world’s most inspiring humans, Erik Weihenmayer, is back on the Dream Big Podcast.  Erik lost his vision by the age of 13, but he resisted the idea that blindness would sweep him to the sidelines of life.  He’s the first blind person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest peak.   He also kayaked the entire 277-miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon -- among many other feats.  We’ve heard fr...

It is hard to believe we are celebrating 4 years of the Dream Big Podcast this month.   Eva started Dream Big when she was just 7 years old, and we can safely say that helping Eva launch the podcast was the best parenting decision we ever made.  We are obviously blown away by all the incredible guests she has interviewed.  Truth be told, it is surreal to sit next to your daughter as she has thoughtful one-on-one conversations with ...

The Iron Cowboy is back on the Dream Big Podcast!   James Lawrence earned his nickname by completing 50 Ironman distance triathlons, in 50 days, in each of the 50 United States.  A single Ironman alone is an incredible accomplishment -- as it consists of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run, raced in that order and without a break.   To do 50 Ironman races in 50 day...
