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 performing arts 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 lose 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 performing artist.

Pointe at yourself to rise, to all that you are capable of.

    Who are you blaming?

    Who are you blaming?

    To is a conversation of self-reflection around blame.
    Do I own 100% responsibility for where I am right now?
    Are we taking ownership of where we are and who we are interacting with?
    How many times a day are you pointing fingers at everyone else other than owning
    that you are where you are right now as a result of the choices you have made?

    Stop blaming others you are in charge of your life.

    Ready to Stretch your mind as well as your body?

    Ready to Stretch your mind as well as your body?

    I wanted to talk to you about stretching today. I was sitting at the beach a few days ago and I remembered what my word for the year was, and that was stretch, to stretch myself, to stretch my mind and all kinds of impulses and emotions came in. Not, only because I myself feel right now stretched so much - I ask for it this from a place of calm. Today I share how I reflect on this and more.
    Thank you for listening,
    So much ,
