“Misty Lown has been an admired colleague and fellow small business owner for more than a decade. She was one of the first people to support our regional parenting publication, and has served as mentor and friend ever since. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing her speak on several occasions, and not only have I been impressed by her capacity to engage with and narrate for a variety of groups and situations, but others at these events have commented on her talent, as well. She knows how to form meaningful alliances and create synergy that benefits not only business, but community.”
From Members of Her Audience…
I REALLY enjoyed the closing presentation for November Conference this year. She talked about how she knows that there will be a last day dancing for each of her students. Sure, we want to instill the lifelong appreciation for it etc. but we know that we are teaching more than just our art form. I get that test scores matter in the moment, but that is not what really matters. We need to teach the WHOLE child and appreciate the various ways the kids can be taught these valuable lessons.
Misty’s message impacted all of the teachers that day. If you are looking for the secret to closing out your conference, you will not be disappointed in what she will leave your audience with. The dancers she brought showcased what can be done when you invest time, talent, and stewardship in students. She was the perfect speaker to close out our conference!”
From Business Owners…
As a business woman she made me feel empowered as if I could accomplish anything. I have since heard her speak at Rhee Gold’s Dance Teacher Conference in 2011 in Arizona. Once again, I was amazed by her work ethic, kind heart, and willingness to share with others. Every time I turned around I would see her counseling and assisting fellow dance studio owners. I would leave her sessions wishing she could have a 2 hour time-slot, because I felt I could learn so much from her.
I recently came across a very difficult business situation of my own and felt lost and alone. After wallowing in sorrow for a good 5 minutes, I immediately thought to reach out to Misty. I thought what would Misty do? Within a few hours she responded to my e-mail, called me and guided me through a difficult situation. I am forever grateful for her words of encouragement, advice, and time as I know how precious it is when running multiple businesses and taking care of a family. Misty gave me hope and I aspire to be as wise as her some day so that I am able to help a fellow studio owner the way she helped me.”
“I went to a dance teacher retreat and Misty was one of the speakers. I really enjoyed her views and motivation. After the retreat, I have been contacting her about dance studio questions. She has been so helpful with any questions I have and responded quickly. Thanks Misty for all the great advice and communication between dance teachers.”
Today was one of the BEST days in my entire life – truly! You may never realize how much of an impact you have had on me and in turn will have on the lives of my students! You are so generous to give me so much of your time and to share your ideas with me. I feel so honored you would do that for me!”
