How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? Being a performer requires you to be adaptable, flexible, and ready at a moment's notice. It also requires strategic thinking, passion, and the commitment and dedication to practice something until you've mastered it. I use all these skills every day. In the boardroom, building out a project, collaborating, and problem solving. When you've had to sing for your supper, oftentimes your toolbox is more robust than your peers' because you've had to be resourceful or you may not get paid. I think my performance background also helps me lead with empathy and understanding. Performers are often in touch with their emotions and that can only lead to stronger connections in business that cultivate a human first approach.
Favorite Performer: My favorite performer of the moment is Jake Wesley Rogers - he's really bringing authenticity to the table and the WOW factor.
