Hi I am Susanne, a former international Ballerina, mother to 3 boys, turned entrepreneur. I am committed to raising the bar in the ballet community and starting conversations that not only empower dancers but create change in this industry. Get all the tools you need to take action, stop chasing what doesn't work and turn your passion into profit. Connect to yourself from within, bust through your fears and push yourself to new levels. Be prepared so when the music stops you have a plan that will ensure your success on and off the stage.

This is a podcast for anyone in the dance community who wants more in their life, business or relationships. I feel that these conversations need to be broken down and discussed so that we don’t loose sight of who we are and what we can be. I want my story to end in triumph just as much as I want it for every single dancer.

Point at yourself to rise, to all that you are capable off.

    Coffee chat | Time for the next chapter

    In this episode of Coffee Chat, Susanne Puerschel talks about the perplexing structure that we have put in place in ballet companies in terms of how corps, soloists, principals, and up the ring are getting paid. She expresses displeasure at the chasm in pay between corps, soloists, principals, and artistic directors. She questions if it’s a helpful incentive for people to rise to their best potential or if it’s hindering them. Susanne devises means of turning performing arts into a sustainable model that people can actually have a living, citing R.I.S.E Media as a potential industry game changer.
    Other talking points include:
    A comparison between the pay of artistic directors in A-level ballet companies and C-level executives of World Food Program and World Health Organization. The role of platforms like Patreon, Buy Me a Coffee in solving this issue. R.I.S.E Media, its vision, and the example its setting. Creating opportunities for yourself as a performing artist. Tapping into media and advertisement for performing artists. R.I.S.E Media crowdfunding campaign launching on November 9 Serendipitous comparison between R.I.S.E Media crowdfunding campaign and the Berlin wall coming down on November 9, 1989. Building a different structure and way of doing performing arts. What’s next for Pointe to Rise. Thank you for listening,
    So much ♥,

    Rising 360 | Choosing a different belief

    Rising 360 | Choosing a different belief

    In this episode of Rising 360, Gina and I dissect choosing a different belief as dancers within the performing arts industry. What it would do to our personal career, our life, how we show up, and how we train on a continuous basis. In addition, we talk about:
    The role of the reticular activating system of our brain is our filter as it only lets through certain kinds of noises or triggers. How ‘what if’ questions are literally a limiting belief to how beautiful and unique and how important it is for us dancers to embrace our uniqueness. The need to start changing our beliefs into powerful beliefs that won't hold us back since we can do whatever our minds can create. How we need to know what we want in life in order for us to activate our filter and see all the possibilities. The fact that opportunities will fully open for us when we embrace our uniqueness. How whatever we're experiencing in our life is because we are a magnet and our beliefs create that magnetic field. Inquiring within and inquiring without about our strengths as a starting point. The need to know our value as the basis to shift our beliefs since beliefs are everything. What tapping into new beliefs will feel like since we have not primed our brains to believe something different. How the mind will default into low vibration beliefs if we are not working on it. Thank you for listening,
    So much ♥,
    Susanne & Gina

    What is your morning routine?

    Susanne shares a conversation she had with a client around routine. How once the perspective is inline how the possibilities open up to your field of view. This comes as a result of having a simple yet ongoing morning routine to set your mind up to see those opportunities.

    Coffee chat with Susanne | Habits of billionaires

    Coffee chat with Susanne | Habits of billionaires

    In this episode of Coffee Chat, I dissect the habits of billionaires such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffet, what it takes to be a millionaire/billionaire and the reasons performing artists are not there.
    In addition, I talk about:
    The belief that being an artist equals struggling and the need to re-write that story. The amount of time put to reading as the number one habit for billionaires and it being a representation of continuous learning and knowledge acquisition. Quick decision making as a way to conserve brain and physical energy to be utilized elsewhere. How billionaires are conscious about getting enough rest and whether or not performing artists get enough rest. Envisioning our future, what on our agenda on a daily basis to get us there. Setting clear boundaries on who and how we spend our time, as a habit by successful people. The starving and lack mentality as the reason as to why performing artists believe they cannot be billionaires and why only a few make a really good living at it.  
    Thank you for listening,
    So much ♥,

I shared this podcast with my daughter who was a dancer. As a mom, I don’t think we realize the pressures that the dance culture places on our children who want to go the distance, the perfection..... thank you Susanne, Eye opening for a parent
