Eva’s #1 mission for the Dream Big Podcast is to inspire her listeners to believe in their potential to achieve their biggest dreams in life, even when life is fraught with obstacles and challenges.  In this regard, we can think of no better guest to inspire the young Big Dreamers than Bethany Hamilton.  At the age of 13 as a rising surf star, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her dream career. However, one month after the attack, Bethany returned to surfing and within two years had won her first national surfing title.  At 17 years old, she realized her dream of surfing professionally and she is still an active surf competitor to this day. 

There is a documentary about Bethany’s life called Unstoppable available on iTunes and Netfllix (links in resources section below), and we highly recommend all Big Dreamer families watch this moving film about Bethany’s inspiring journey.   In addition, Bethany has an amazing course that she recently created also called Unstoppable, and has been so generous to offer to do a giveaway of her course to one lucky Big Dreamer.  To enter your name into the giveaway, please visit this page.  The winner will be announced and contacted on October 15. 

Thank you again Bethany for being Eva’s guest on the Dream Big Podcast, and for all that you do to inspire others to become unstoppable like you!
