Show Notes

How do we hold the vision of our dreams, especially when others say it's impractical or impossible? How do we maintain our positivity, confidence, determination, and resilience in the face of our doubt, fear, and limiting beliefs? And when the unexpected happens, how do we turn lemons into lemonade? Our guest, Lisa Suswain, believes the secret is staying in our “bubble”. At age 16, against the odds, Lisa secured a spot in the coveted  Royal Ballet. However, after an injury made it unsafe for her to continue dancing, she made a graceful pivot towards something new. She applied the discipline and perseverance of her dance training to successfully step into the world of entrepreneurship and achieved even more success than she had ever dreamed.
