Terri Allred
Terri Allred

I have had 25 years of small business ownership and consulting experience that I will draw upon to help you reach your business goals.

I am the owner of the Belly Dance Business Academy (BDBA). In addition to running the BDBA, I am the Owner of Third Eye Tribal in MN, a Business Consultant for FatChanceBellyDance®, Producer of ATS® Homecoming and the Project Manager for The ATS® Magazine. I am deeply entrenched in the American Tribal Style® and broader belly dance community bringing connections and resources to my consulting relationship with you. I have written two books, produced an instructional DVD, lectured and taught dance extensively and run successful dance businesses in two states.

My professional experience prior to dance includes a Master of Theological Studies in Feminist Theology and nonprofit management including serving as the Executive Director of Rape Crisis, Domestic Violence and Women's Centers in TN, OH, NC and MN. My training and experience in counseling allows me to offer insightful and compassionate guidance to you on your journey.

Hello and Welcome to the Coaching Circle!

I am so delighted you have joined us.

Your membership entitles you to:

1. ALL of the free and $15 classes at the Belly Dance Business Academy.

We promise AT LEAST 4 new $15 classes per month!

2. 20% discount on all workshops

Each time a new workshop is published, I will notify you by email and include your 20% off coupon link.

3. Discussion group for immediate feedback on issues you are facing

Find and join the discussion group on Facebook.

4. Monthly Coaching Video Call

We will be using a video conferencing tool called Zoom. Shortly after your registration, you will receive an email from me asking about preferred days and times (in general) for the Coaching Circle.

I will make every effort to schedule Coaching Circle's so that as many people can be present as I can. However, if you can't make a certain month's call, you can submit your questions in advance and we will address them during the call. Every call is recorded and will be made into a private class on the BDBA for your ongoing use. In that class, you will find a video file, audio file and any resources that we discussed during the call.

Each month, once the call is scheduled, I will send you a link via email to join the call.

Please let me know if you would like classes on topics you don't see on our schedule. We are here to make sure you reach your business, teaching and learning goals so don't be shy!

I am looking forward to getting to know you.

Terri
