Later I worked on a slightly more artistic rendering of an exercise my amazing business coach, Emily Grace, had me work on a couple weeks ago. The exercise was originally just for acting but I've been wanting to apply principles to other facets of my career. I only have Acting and Songwriting so far, but I actually think I need to do a teaching one.
Lastly, tonight I went to a dance class. I teach at this studio so I can take complimentary class, and the director is amazing! I'm learning so much from her about how to be a positive business leader. She loves and knows absolutely everyone and she's constantly checking in with people on both their personal and professional lives. Recently I ran into her and she asked me "How are all your classes going? Do you have any questions? ... Are you happy?"... I've never had an employer ask me that before. It's amazing what that does for me as an employee. I am happy, but if I weren't I would know that it would matter to her, and that makes me want to stay, and observe her mission statement for the studio and be a really great teacher, because she's a really great boss.
After class I was just jotting down some ideas about positive things from her class I'd want to integrate into mine, and I got thinking about all the amazing dancers there. They could easily be working in New York, they have all the skills. I keep having the thought that we should have a business seminar for all of them, to give them an idea of what the city is like - one of those things I wish I would have understood better (or paid more attention to). And when I thought about what I might say I started crafting this...
Well, it's been a good day... time for bed. Tomorrow will be great as well :)
