Today we have a very fancy guest — star of Disney’s Fancy Nancy to be exact.  Mia Sinclair Jenness made her professional debut at the age of six in the National Tour of Les Miserables, the youngest child to have ever been cast in the show.  She also starred as Matilda in Matilda The Musical.  Currently, she is the voice of Nancy in Disney’s hit show Fancy Nancy based on the New York Times bestselling book series that most kids know and love!  I know I do! Disney’s animated family comedy centers around six-year-old Nancy, a high-spirited young girl whose zest and enthusiasm for all that is exquisite – including language, nature, art and color – transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.

For those who are listening to this episode near its publication date, there is a special episode airing on Friday, Nov. 2 2018 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel called “Ice Skater Extraordinaire/Nancy L’Artiste.”  And if you are reading this after that date, Fancy Nancy airs weekdays on Disney Channel and daily on Disney Junior.

We are hard at work at the Dream Big Academy — a course that Eva is creating with her parents (Alex and Olga) to teach kids about success principles (e.g. self-belief, positive attitude, gratitude, etc).   We feel that these concepts are not adequately taught at schools, that all the materials created by top “gurus” are made by adults for adults, and that it is never too early to start learning these concepts.   If you would like to be the first to know when the Academy is ready, then please sign up now at DreamBigPodcast.com/waitlist.  We may open up a few more spots to our Beta group (which is currently full but can be expanded if we need additional feedback).   We will reach out to the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis if any spots open up, so join the list today at DreamBigPodcast.com/waitlist
