We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Hobson Gormer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jennifer, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factors in my success and brand are Perseverance, Education and Advocacy.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
All that I am, and all of my successes began at the ballet barre. People have asked me for decades, how I have achieved and accomplished so much, and I always give the same 2 answers: God and dance. I am a retired professional dancer, choreographer and educator/professor, holding 3 Masters Degrees and doctoral studies. I have translated and perfected the science of teaching dance into adult learning, curriculum development and instructional design for corporate cliebts, higher education and small business. I have taught new small business owners how to start and launch profitable businesses; and kidCEOs how to launch successful businesses on their own. As a learning leader and consultant, I have helped Fortune 100s make or save millions of dollars using the same tools and lessons from studying dance. As a 3-time Best Selling Author, International Speaker and keynote, and award winning business professional, all of my success derives from my training and experience as a dancer. The lifelong lessons of perseverance, intent, integrity, passion, power and flexibility reach far beyond the dance studio. All that I do as an educator and entrepreneur is pure choreography! I want the world to know that passion and purpose will take you further in life than anything else. Passion reaches beyond intellect and purpose directs your path. I am living testament.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
