Shout out to my #Hoopwife #Businesspartner
and #bff @missmadabouthoops
Im so proud of all we have accomplished together. We were both teaching our own adult hoop classes in #Houston
when we met in 2014. We could have viewed each other as competition - but instead we chose to support each other completely. We went to each other’s events, performances and classes, we gave each other work and we wanted to see each other succeed. It was the beginning of something magical ✨ .
We eventually joined forces and co-founded the hoop troupe @hustletownhoopers
👯♀️ Our first year, we were booked regularly for gigs, nominated for Hoopie Awards twice and won ‘Hoop Troupe of the Year’ in 2016 🏆🙌 We traveled to Bali together, performed at Backwoods music festival and performed for Super Bowl Live in Houston in 2017 🤟🏈✈️ .
During that time, I was working a comfy sales and marketing job in corporate America and Madison was starting a small hula hoop after school program called @madabouthoops ⭕️ She was really pushing me to make the leap into full time hoops - shes a pusher 😂 After months of talking about it - We finally took the leap! I quit my job and never looked back, we became 50/50 partners and our little after school company isn’t so little anymore, it’s thriving! We’re now in 3 states, employ about 15 people and growing! Our programs have enriched the lives of thousands of children and have giving them opportunities to perform at halftime shows for NBA, MLS, Universities and more ⚽️🏀👏🏻 This is just the beginning for #MadAboutHoops
True to our nature, we had to keep growing and evolving. Our next big adventure together is the @highaltitudehoopretreat 🌲🏔 We’ve been manifesting this for years and it’s finally happening. We’re pouring our heart and souls into this event - just like we have always done. We’re so excited to share this with the hoop community! .
Not even living in different states can stop us! We dream it and then we do it, I guess that’s what makes us the #DreamTeam
