I’ve recently went from being a stay at home mom to a business owner. My Husband and I opened a ballroom dance studio and have now been open about a year and a half. But more than just opening a business, within the last month or so I’ve taken on the leadership role of manager within the studio. This experience has taken my entire life to a new level. I went from being able to go through my days in sweats and a top knot to having to dress the part daily. Taking the time to “doll myself up” has given me a new appreciation for my own image. It reminded me I’m worth more than hiding in slouchy clothes. Of course that is only a minor change. The real change has come from the amount of confidence and happiness I’ve gained from running a successful business in an industry I’m absolutely in love with.
