what inspires you?
since this is a resume of sorts (which we swore we would never write again), our "qualifications" would read:
passion, enthusiasm and life rich with experience
brace yourself, here it comes - the "work history" and "education" part:
…if you were an investor (or our banker!) you should know that collectively we have over 37 years corporate experience in the metals industry via customer service, inventory management, sales & marketing, ebusiness and accounting. not to mention an associates degree, a bachelors degree and an mba.
…but you're more likely a dancer or dance lover! thus our qualifications ring true - we have a passion for all things dance. we should mention that we both grew up dancing, and as adults we continue to take various dance classes (and you might even recognize us in a local recital!). you'd hire us, right?
working for so long in the corporate world has a way of putting things into perspective. therefore, our business plan for pointe dance boutique opened with "life goes by too fast to be stuck in a job for which you have no passion".
so we shed our corporate skin and went retail! a dramatic change for all - we should take this time to thank all our family & friends for their continued support. we couldn't have done it without you! it's so liberating to be working in an environment that you are so passionate about (it's definitely not just a job anymore!).
we hope you find inspiration at pointe. it's more than just a tag line; it really is a way of life for us.
thank you for taking the time to visit our website. we hope to see you in our boutique soon!
