682 1024 Thriving Beyond Belief

What an absolute blessing it is to have Sarah Nuse with me today on Thriving Beyond Belief!

Sarah is such a light and is someone who naturally thrives. She is a wife, mother, and owner of Tippi Toes, a dance program that is built into schools during the school day. As a mother herself, she knows that afternoons running around and taking children to various activities can be exhausting, so the dance program is built for young children to participate in during normal school hours, complete with recitals and all! This amazing program has been adopted all over the country, and will hopefully soon be offered internationally!

Tippi Toes was actually birthed out of a time of desperation in Sarah’s life, a time when there was not much direction. She was encouraged to dream big and implement those dreams by her parents. We take some time to discuss the importance of the roles of parents in their children’s lives. In a culture where parents want to bless their children with more than they had, there tends to be a generation of people who don’t know what it is like to struggle, fail, and figure out what to do next. The story of how Sarah’s business came to be is so refreshing to hear.

We talk a lot about balance. The balance of being a good parent but also putting marriage before parenting. We discuss the balance of what to say “yes” to in your life. We talk about the balance of communication with your partner and taking time for marriage. We discuss the balance of figuring out how the Lord created us and what He wants to do with that creation. Sarah shares some amazing wisdom on all of these topics, reminding us at the base of it all that we were not created to live in fear. We were created to thrive. So anytime we begin to feel the fear creep up, we must turn to the Lord to be reminded that we were made for so much more than living in a “stuck” place of fear. We were created to live and live well. Let us cast away the thought that we “aren’t enough” in whatever capacity the enemy is telling us- whether that be our marriage, how we parent, our position at work, a dream that we want to come to fruition, etc. Let us instead lay those things before the Lord and find strength in who HE is that spurs us to do our best.

Tippi Toes is now franchised across the country with 35 franchise owners in 14 states. The company was recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine as a top 500 franchise company in the world.

Tippi Toes was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2012, where Sarah and her sister, Megan, landed a TV deal with Shark Mark Cuban.

As a company, Tippi Toes has had the opportunity to release four music CDs. The latest, “On Top of the World,” hit the Top 10 on iTunes and top 20 on Billboards chart on the Best Children’s Album chart. “On Top of the World” was also submitted for the Best Children’s Album for the 60th Grammy Awards. Sarah and her sister write all lyrics on each CD to ensure that positive, encouraging music is played throughout each class at Tippi Toes.

Sarah has co-authored, with her husband, Adam, a children’s book, Pink Ballet Shoes. Sarah is currently working to expand the company by adding a line of ballet slippers and dance wear due to come out early 2019.

Sarah is in the process of writing her first business book and has spent much of the last year speaking to all types of groups about dreaming big, being bold and using your God-given talents.

Sarah is engaging, inspiring and desires to share the practical tools that allowed her to reach her big dreams so that others can do the same. Sarah’s journey in business has made her very relatable and she wants to help others in their business life, as well as in their marriage and family.  Living outside of Nashville, Tennessee with her family, Sarah is the wife to baseball executive Adam Nuse, and mother to her three children: Lucy, Lola and Hank.

This episode is so sweet to me, and I wish we could have kept talking. I cannot wait for you to hear this today and be encouraged to live your best!

Are y’all ready for this episode?? We have THE Bob Goff on today’s episode of Thriving Beyond Belief! I am so so excited to have you hear this episode- it is one for the books!

Bob Goff is an incredible speaker and author of books: Love Does, Love Does for Kids and Everybody Always. He is a husband and father, and one of his many passions is building schools all around the world.

We discuss the different books that Bob has written and his particular focus on love in these books, for both adults and younger people. He gives such great insight on how we need to engage the very people that are the hardest for us to love through knowing what true love is: sacrifice and commitment.

We model love for the unloved by how Jesus first loved us. He also focuses on what true love instead of what the world tells us it is. We need to simplify and bring the main focus back on the Lord. Bob talks about loud voices versus true voices and discerning what we are going to listen to in our lives.

Bob has such wisdom on what is truly meaningful in our life. We need to prioritize what is most important and learning that it is ok to fail while trying rather than fail by watching. There is so much growth in the failure of trying.

We talk deeply about marriage and how to make your marriage such an important aspect of your life. You need to show up to make an impact. Sometimes we confuse oneness with sameness because although we are one, our spouse can be so different than us.

“God isn’t dazzled when we go across the ocean. He’s amazed when we walk across the street.” I am reminded to engage with those that are around us and be intentional with others, and the love of Jesus will radiate from you.

This is one of the jolliest podcasts so far on Thriving Beyond Belief, so grab a cup of coffee and listen in  today!
