Radha is the co-Founder, CEO and Chief Community Architect of Daybreaker, the early morning dance and wellness move-ment that currently holds events in 25 cities and over a dozen college campuses around the world with a community of almost half a million people. Her new book BELONG answers the questions, “how the heck do I find my people?” and “How do I create large and meaningful communities in the real world?”.

Radha spent 18 months synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their own community could have a blueprint for how to do it. She is a successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX, LiveItUp), author, globe trotting speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor.

Eva initially met Radha at an event that Daybreaker organized at the Nike Headquarters in Oregon. Eva was the co-emcee of the event, and we were so impressed by Radha and the Daybreaker team that we had to invite her on to the Dream Big Podcast. We are so grateful she agreed to be our guest and know that you will all love this interview!

If you are a long-time listener, you know that we are working on a course that we are going to launch in 2019 called the Dream Big Academy.   The first section of the course is all about this concept of self-belief. And we just completed this section!

We really want all of our Big Dreamers to have access to this information – so we are going to offer the first section for FREE for a limited time.  It is essentially its own course on confidence — with over 1 hour of videos with Eva teaching on the subject!  We hired an amazing illustrator who helped us with the videos and accompanying worksheets. We are so incredibly proud of this content and know it can have a huge impact.   We hear from so many listeners who say that their kids really connect with Eva since she is a peer – and we know that this same connection will carry over to the course. To access this free confidence course, please go to DreamBigPodcast.com/Beta
