    SubTitle: Dance Boss with Erin Pompa 
    I don’t know about you, but I like to sit in the passenger seat sometimes…

    My vision for building a team wasn’t me just giving directions without any creative freedom. No! I really wanted to build a team to make me better. 
    And I could only get better by letting my team’s ideas, thoughts, and perspectives into my universe. 
    I wanted to hire a team to help my business thrive! And in episode #200 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I introduce you to my team, who has helped me do just that!

    Real Cost of Hiding From Yourself and Not Creating Your Dance Biz?

    Real Cost of Hiding From Yourself and Not Creating Your Dance Biz?

    On a TikTok video, Elizabeth Gilbert (Author of Eat, Pray, Love & Big Magic) differentiated between hobby, job, career, vocation…
    This rocked my mind and confirmed to me even more that I am a person who wants, is determined, and is driven to use my vocation to change lives.
    And this drive I have is so in alignment with the work that I do with my clients.
    My clients feel called to create the programs they create based on the experiences they have had in life.
    It brings me so much joy to be a vessel that allows dance professionals to see possibilities, and to create programs that impact the dance community beyond technique.
    In episode #199 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I dive into this and so much more!
    After you listen, head on over to Instagram and DM me @erinpride and let me know your biggest takeaway.

    How Starting My Online Dance Business Improved My Life

    How Starting My Online Dance Business Improved My Life

    Deciding to start my online dance business while working full-time showed me that I could do hard things.
    It showed me that I could dream audacious, ridiculous goals, pursue them and make them come to life!
    It also showed me that when I fail I can recover.
    In episode #198 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I dive into how starting my online dance business has improved my life. 
    And it has nothing to do with money…
    I also dive into the inner workings of DancePreneur Academy, my 6-month group program, where I help you, the dance professional, identify your area of specialty, create a group program based on that area specialty, and start generating 5K months in your online dance business.
    After you listen, head on over to Instagram and DM me @erinpride and let me know your biggest takeaway.

    3 Reasons Your Online Dance Business Could Fail and How You Can Avoid Them

    3 Reasons Your Online Dance Business Could Fail and How You Can Avoid Them

    Nothing is guaranteed and you are going to fail.
    Failure is inevitable. 
    This might not be the marketing tactic that you want to hear, but it is the truth, my friend!
    You cannot do things, make decisions, start something or not start something based on the fact that you may fail or because the outcome you want is not guaranteed.
    I know you might not be able to see this now, but it is the failure that is a gift. It is failure that shows you how you need to improve on your life and business journey. 
    It is the “nothing being guaranteed” that is the fire that lights your a** to keep going.
    In episode #197 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I talk:
    How to reframe failure. How not having a guarantee in life actually serves you, not hurts you. 3 ways your business could actually fail and how to avoid them. Do me a solid. If you found this episode useful, I would love to know your #1 takeaway. DM me on Instagram @erinpride and lmk.

    Creating Opportunities to Teach From and To the Whole Person with Allison Pagano

    Creating Opportunities to Teach From and To the Whole Person with Allison Pagano

    Are you running from the thing because you want it to be easy?
    Listen, I have run from things and I have buried them.
    I thought that burying them, hiding from them, and not letting them see the light of day was protecting me.
    But, what was actually happening when I buried these things was pain. 
    My self-worth was affected, my relationships were affected, my day-to-day life was affected…
    And it wasn’t until I became courageous enough to face the things that I wanted to hide from that I began enjoying who I am as a person and in life.
    Now don’t get me wrong there are things in my life that I am not ready to face and that is OK but, what matters is that I am willing to face them when the time is right.
    Some of you are settling for a lesser version of yourself because you are running from the hard work.
    You are full of potential my friend and just because getting to where you want to in life looks like it’s going to be hard, and probably is going to be hard doesn’t mean that it’s not worth doing. 
    It doesn’t mean you are not capable of doing it. Stop letting hard be your internal excuse!
    In episode #196 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I sit down with the creator of Embodied Dance, Allison Pagano, and we have an amazing conversation about hearing the calling and doing the hard work.
    We also talk:
    Allison’s background in dance Embodied Dance, how it started, and how far it has come Growing through discomfort And following messages from your heart no matter what society says Now head on over to Instagram, DM me @erinpride, and tell me what are you ready to stop running from?

    Because it's Hard Doesn't Mean Starting Your Online Dance Business is a Bad Idea

    Because it's Hard Doesn't Mean Starting Your Online Dance Business is a Bad Idea

    We misuse the word hard so often. 
    Hard does not mean impossible. Hard does not mean being out of reach.
    But that’s what we mean when we say it.
    Hard is defined as demanding great exertion or effort.
    So what you are really saying to yourself is that starting an online dance business will require me to exert great effort so I am not going to do it. 
    If that sounds like you then this episode is for you!
    In episode #195 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I talk about the difference between the hard and the how, and I give you some steps you can take to take hard out of the equation when building your online dance business.
    Now friend, if you found this episode useful, I would love to know your #1 takeaway. DM me on Instagram @erinpride and lmk.
