It’s the start of New Year - a great time to develop new passions and skills. About a month ago, Eva came to us filled with excitement as she explained her plans to plant a garden. In this episode, Eva shares why she is so passionate about planting a garden, what she learned from our family’s failed attempt to do so a few years ago, and why this time the result is going to be different. The entire Karpman family is almost as excited for 2021 as Eva is for her new garden, which means we are super excited

Dream Big Podcast

Eva talks a lot about success, and she has interviewed many of the most successful people on the planet. But one common pattern that Eva has noticed from all of her incredible guests is that they readily admit to failures along their journey to achieving their big dreams. We stumbled across a commencement address that Denzel Washington delivered in 2011, where he eloquently shared that the way to fail is to fall forward, not backwards.

Dream Big Podcast

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… all CANCELLED. And even worse, millions of people contracting COVID. In this episode, Eva shares that how we will remember 2020 will come down to one word :) You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out what that word is, but we did want to thank Gary Vaynerchuk for inspiring this episode.

A few months ago, the family of Eva’s best friends Sienna and Cayenne got jet skis. They have been telling Eva about their weekends at the lake.

We had the opportunity over Thanksgiving weekend to rent a jet ski and needless to say, Eva jumped on the opportunity. In this week’s episode, Eva shares the story of her experience, as well as the important life lessons she learned. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/229

Since we just celebrated Thanksgiving here in the US, we thought this would be the perfect episode to talk about the central theme of Thanksgiving. Giving Thanks! In other words, Gratitude. This is a subject that legendary researcher Dr. Brene Brown has conducted tons of research on, and in this episode, Eva shares the importance of incorporating a gratitude practice in your daily routine, and shares the gratitude practice that our family has done for over a year now.

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. 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 buy can never guarantee your happiness. Eva borrows some great lessons from Jay Shetty’s new book Think Like A Monk. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/227

DB 226: How Kamala Harris turned IMPOSSIBLE into I’M POSSIBLE show art DB 226: How Kamala Harris turned IMPOSSIBLE into I’M POSSIBLE

Dream Big Podcast

As parents, we have worked very hard to eliminate phrases like “That’s impossible” 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. Eva shares her feelings about believing that anything is possible. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/226

One of the world’s most inspiring humans, Erik Weihenmayer, is back on the Dream Big Podcast. 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. I know a lot of kids (and adults) are scared right now, so I decided to reach out to Erik and ask him to share his thoughts on how to stay calm and how to avoid panic during these difficult times.

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 from a lot of Big Dreamers in our audience who continue to struggle with this pandemic, which is becoming more of a concern right now as cases are surging here in the United States and across the globe.  I know a lot of kids (and adults) are scared right now, so I decided to reach out to Erik and ask him to share his thoughts on how to stay calm and how to avoid unnecessary panic during these difficult times.  Climbing to the peak of Mt Everest and solo kayaking the Grand Canyon both require you to be in peak physical condition, but more importantly require tremendous mental strength.  That fact that Erik accomplished these feats without eyesight is truly remarkable, and I can not think of anyone on the planet more qualified to answer a question about how to stay calm under pressure and push forward when the going gets tough.   Not surprisingly, Erik delivered a brilliant answer that we all need to hear right now.   Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/225
