Many ballet dancers are afraid to imagine a future without the stage. Each week on Ballet to Business, Jordan Nicole interviews current and former ballet dancers who have created their own small businesses. Within each story, we talk about the hardships fought within the ballet industry, but also the incredible lessons learned along the way.

I have just spent the last couple of weeks binge listening to this podcast every spare moment I get. So real, so honest, so raw – the INCREDIBLE perseverance, persistance, endurance, and tenacity these dancers have – it's SO inspiring. I love hearing how they have carried these beautiful qualities into entrepreneurship. And Jordan herself hast such a sweet and gentle nature, a heart that radiates her love for Jesus, and a gift in encouragement that obviously makes her guests ADORE every moment of being in her presence. Bless you beautiful lady for the difference you're making!
