Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the incredible talks given by my participants in The Big Talk Academy as a part of our Virtual Showcase. This showcase is the culmination of their hard work as they cross the finish line to become certified speakers.   

These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the amazing Big Talks presented and also give you exclusive access to my live feedback and the direction I give to each speaker immediately following their performances.


This week’s episode features Andrea Sanchez and her talk, How I Realized I Was Good Enough To Change the World.


Andrea Sanchez is a leadership and communications enthusiast. Having intense passion for daring people to think differently, she hosts #DareToBe chats on Twitter and leads a monthly WORTHY: Rally for Hope & Kindness. Andrea is a top writer on inspiration and leadership on Medium and believes everyone’s voice has purpose.


In this potent talk about her own near-death experience, Andrea shares with us all about our purpose on Earth.


In her talk, she explores:

  • The thoughts that were going through her head when she faced possible death and her reaction afterward
  • The question we all ask ourselves during challenging times and what those times teach us
  • The people-pleasing epidemic and how it affects us
  • How to become the person you are supposed to be
