Dance Boss Podcast

Jul 29, 2021

How do you respond when someone gives you a gift?

Do you: 

  1. Feel guilty and say something like… “Oh you shouldn’t have!”
  2. Scream, “thank you!” full of gratitude…
  3. Do something in-between...

You see, when someone gives you a gift, yes the gift is for you, but it’s more about the exchange of value.

You receive a gift, and the person offering you that gift receives your gratitude. 

And it’s the same thing with your online dance business. 

You created something that is valuable to your audience. You shouldn’t feel guilty for charging for it.

We have to change our mindsets from the starving artist to the abundant artist.

In episode #147 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I dive into this further with Steve Mastroianni, dedicated father, husband, coach, student, philanthropist, and author of the new book Hobby Boss. We also talk about monetizing your gifts and balancing all the different aspects of your life in a holistic way.

So tell me, which kind of gift-receiver are you? Tag me on IG @erinpride and let me know!
