DB 143: Facing My Fears: My School Talent Show and My 1st Keynote!
In this episode, Eva shares two recent experiences: performing a complicated rap at her school talent show, and delivering a 20 minutes keynote in front of a live audience. Many people assume that as the host of the podcast, Eva is super confident and has no fear of public speaking. But the podcast is recorded at our home with a microphone. Eva does many episodes in her pajamas! Performing and speaking in front of a live audience is a completely different skill set -- and Eva had to push way outside of her comfort zone. Both experiences went incredibly well -- and in this episode Eva shares the two strategies that she believes were the primary reason for this success.

Elena Favilli is an Italian writer and serial entrepreneur. She’s the co-creator of the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls series, which has broken records on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter for literary publications. Eva’s wonderfully generous Aunt Ilene backed the Kickstarter campaign and gave the Rebel Girls series to Eva, who absolutely adores the books, artwork, and the amazing women featured in the books. We were beyond thrilled when Elena agreed to be a guest on the show, and share how she took her big dream of empowering young girls to believe in their ability to accomplish extraordinary things, and turned it into reality with the Rebel Girls series.

DB 141: Stop & Smell The Roses: The Joshua Bell Rush Hour Experiment
What do you think would happen if one of the world’s best violinists – Joshua Bell -- performed in a busy Washington DC metro station during rush hour? Here’s the catch --- no announcement was made. There was no promotion. Instead, Joshua Bell played incognito in a baseball cap and lay out his violin case to collect donations – as street musicians often do. In this episode, Eva asks you to guess how many of the 1097 people who passed by stopped to listen, reveals the shocking results of the experiment, and shares important lessons for all our Big Dreamers.
