Spotlighting Our 2021 Best Seller: The Jet Setter Dance Board

Our smallest dance board and our best-selling dance board in 2021 is The Jet Setter. We designed this board because we wanted an extremely portable, affordable dance board that recreational and pre-professional dancers could use to practice their technique at home or on-the-go. Co-founder Saumirah discovered that, though it is only 23 inches in diameter, the Jet Setter is still perfect for practicing tap dance combinations (it really forces you to dance with your feet underneath you!), non-traveling pointe exercises, and even pirouette turns if you’re already a somewhat strong turner (otherwise, you may fall off of the board, so be prepared for that!). Some of our DDDB Brand Ambassadors (search for the hashtag #DDDBambassador across social platforms!) have shown us that they...

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,...
