In an effort to keep my digital content focused on what my audience wants to see and to encourage myself to keep to routines that make me feel great physically, I’ll be focusing on stretching for a while! When it comes to stretching, you should know that I like to keep it simple. There areContinue reading “Straddle Stretch Forever”
I recently posted a few polls on the Dance Daze Dance Boards™ Instagram account asking which kind of dance education content my audience there would be most interested in seeing. One of the top-voted content choices, receiving 88% of votes, was information about improving flexibility. As a dance educator and as a former pre-professional dancer,Continue reading “The Importance of Flexibility”
When I was younger, one of my favorite comedy movies was Sugar & Spice. (I have an eclectic taste in movies, so we’re not here to judge this reference.) If you know me, you know that I tend to really like quotes, cheesy though they may be, and one that I picked up from theContinue reading “You Know What They Say: A Failure to Plan . . .”
It’s quite lovey to think of myself of someone who is taking calculated risks and boldly pursing the life that I feel so strongly called to live.
What keeps you going when you’re just not feeling it as a creative entrepreneur? As I’ve said before: Even if we completely love what we do, we won’t love every single minute of every single day of what we do. For example: I absolutely love being an entrepreneur and directing dance programs. But I stronglyContinue reading “Foggy Today? Focus on the Future”

When it comes to business and creativity and getting ideas out there I believe the following: There’s more where that came from. (You can’t “run out” of ideas or creativity. ThereContinue reading “Reasons Why You Should Start Today”
Rest is important, but so is doing the work. Even though I’m privileged enough to live a creative life (“privileged” meaning: only working a full-time job if I feel like it, continuing to pay a car note on an Audi when I could get around just as easily in a paid-for something else, pouring moneyContinue reading “Rest is important, but . . .”
I’m a hardcore entrepreneur. I live to create. I thrive on bringing ideas to fruition through the art of starting and developing business ventures. But I’ve mentioned it before on The Happy Dance Podcast and I’ve mentioned it in my Lunchtime Entrepreneur Chats on Clubhouse: I like to keep some freelance work or a superContinue reading “I WANT to be paid to think.”
I’ve been around long enough to know that “enough time” will never exist. It won’t exist in the course of a day, a week, and–if we’re doing it right–a lifetime. For those of us “ambitious” souls (the word is in quotes because for my fellow dreamers and do-ers, you know there’s absolutely no other wayContinue reading “Making Time + Being Present”
I’m the creator and host of The Happy Dance Podcast, but I haven’t consistently recorded an episode in months. Each week when I don’t record an episode, I tell myself that it is because I have other things to do or that the podcast simply isn’t highest on my list of priorities for the week.Continue reading “Create Your Own Luck: Remove Your Creative Barriers”
So I’m currently reading Seth Godin’s book, The Practice: Shipping Creative Work. In it, he says that if you write, you’re a writer.
