How My Dance Background Helps Me As A Business Owner

I had my first dance lesson at the age of 3. I don’t remember much of it, but I do remember two things about it. First, I remember there were weird stuffed animals in the window area that creeped me out. Second, I remember that I didn’t like it, and I kept going to my mom to ask for more snacks. So from there, my mom enrolled me in acting, modeling, piano lessons, and gymnastics. And, while gymnastics was a very close second, by the age of 5, and after trying out my first tap dance class, I knew dance would be my thing. (I’ll forever be grateful to Ms. Vanessa, my first tap dance teacher who told my mother...

Pushing Through to Create

Are you working to have a creative practice in your life or to regularly schedule time for artistic, inspiring activities that feed your soul? If so, I think that's absolutely great. But what happens on the days when you don't feel like doing the creative work? What happens when the intrinsic motivation that you usually get from participating in your creative activity isn't a strong enough reason to make you want to get out of bed in the morning? What if you simply don't feel like writing or dancing or drawing on any given day? How do you handle that? For me, something that I've learned that I must do when I'm not feeling the natural drive to create is...

What inspires you to work?

I love working. More specifically, I love spending time thinking, then using my freshly-generated ideas to create a new reality. I'm someone who's highly motivated by a sense of responsibility, so when my work allows me to feel that I have the power to positively impact lives through my words, actions, or tangible creations, I'm given an indescribable sense of reward. What I love most about the work that I'm currently doing, though, is that I am working tirelessly and fearlessly to live the life of my dreams. Each day, I am working to be as happy as I can possibly be. Additionally, this way of living allows me to continually consider others. My happiest of happy vision always, somehow,...

Trust the Feeling

It’s 2021, so we know from mental health experts that we SHOULD NOT believe everything we think.  Sometimes our thoughts are WRONG. Sometimes it’s just anxiety rearing its ugly little head again.  But, since it’s 2021, we also know the importance of trusting that gut instinct. Connecting with our body. Not ignoring that 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙜 that just won’t go away.  So, while it’s true that thoughts aren’t always things . . . sometimes they are. And today, we’re saying, trust the feeling.  Good or bad, you know what you know. Listen to yourself. And believe yourself.  Then dance it out (or in).#dancingcolorfully#dancedazedanceboards

Life Is An Experiment

We’re always testing and experimenting. We try on clothes, we try out new phrases (like “STAN” - 𝙒𝙝𝙮 is that a thing, Gen Z?! 🤣), we hang out with different friends, and we buy a random brand of jeans. An experiment is defined as “a scientific procedure undertaken to make a discovery, test a hypothesis, or demonstrate a known fact.” It’s not always that we’re always performing, as if on stage. It’s that we’re always trying to find the best fit—like those friends, those jeans, those words in our vernacular. And, as long as we’re not hurting others or being entirely untrue to ourselves, we should keep testing. Because finding that 𝕡𝕖𝕣𝕗𝕖𝕔𝕥 𝕗𝕚𝕥 (what up high rise, straight leg, stretch...
