I love it when they call me Mrs. Pompa. NAME CHANGE ALERT! I’m taking my husbands’ name both personally and professionally. And I want you to know this was a f**kin hard decision.

What happens in that space between thought and action? Between having that idea and making that phone call, or writing that proposal, or talking to that person. Most ideas die because of doubt. Thinking we’re not good enough or we don’t have the experience, or whatever it is. We think we’re missing a piece of the puzzle, but what we’re really missi…
 
Let’s talk about the word “boss.” How do you define it? Some people see it as being a puppeteer, manipulating puppets.

To be very honest, I used to think of it (and myself) like a shadow hovering over my team, watching their every move. But in this e…

A little over 4 years ago I felt like I was drowning. I was uncomfortable, and not fulfilled. My self worth was based on what others thought of me, and how I wanted to be perceived.

Let’s talk; doing the work. When I first started my online dance business, I thought the work was about strategy and building technique. It wasn’t until after I invested in a coach that I learned that the work is releasing, and accepting what you don’t know. The work is accepting that what you have been doing is not working, and deciding to do it a…
 
Do you identify as a dance teacher and a dance coach? A teacher instructs you in a specific skill-set, breaking down material for you to understand. A coach helps you develop and improve your own skills to get you through a process.

I thought I would live to see 40, but I wasn’t always sure I would enjoy the way I was living. Talking about my dark days is something I often camouflage, but today I decided to go a little deeper as nowadays I like to push myself to get uncomfortable.

Are you an online dance business owner suffering from ATS syndrome? AFRAID TO SELL I find this syndrome very apparent in our dance culture. We did gigs for free & we were grateful for them.
