Q and A with Courtney from Walla Walla, WA, living in Charlotte, NC
“Logic would have never told me to quit my stable job, sell everything, and move to a country where I had no job and didn’t know anyone, but it was the most life-changing experience of my entire life.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: My biggest passion in life is travel. When I was 10 years old, my grandparents took me on a trip for eight weeks to Washington State, Oregon, California, Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. It was my first taste of true adventure, seeing that things could be different from my small town I grew up in and that there was so much more to see. It sparked a love of freedom, travel, and adventure inside of me. I have been to 30 countries so far, and I’m always looking to explore more! I was in Corporate America for 16 years. I recently left to go full time in my coaching business. I support women in taking their side hustle from broke to bank! We create a side hustle that can support them full time so they can create a life they truly love. I absolutely love what I do and am so excited to wake up with passion and do this amazing work! I feel truly blessed that I was willing to go for and see what I have been able to create. I have a new course coming out called DECIDE. It is all about how one decision can change your entire life. When you decide you are a traveler, travel shows up. When you decide you are successful, success shows up. When you decide you are a home owner, a home can show up. It is up to you to make the decision to change your life!
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I grew up in a small town with teenage parents. Neither of my parents went to college when I was younger. They have both gotten their two-year degrees now. I was the first person in my family to get a four-year degree and the only person to get my master’s degree. I felt like education was my key to getting out of the lower-middle class, small town living. I learned more, hoping it would make me happy and increase my income. Working in corporate made me so miserable, and I felt so trapped. I felt like I would never get out. I felt so stuck. I didn’t know how life could be different. I listened to my intuition. I quit my corporate job in HR, sold everything I owned, and moved to New Zealand for a year. It was the most epic, life-changing experience of my life. Once I finished my visa there, I backpacked through Southeast Asia for three months. Then I came home with no idea what to do next. I couldn’t find a job and fell into network marketing. While that was not my passion or my final destination, I found my passion in helping women create a life of freedom and abundance. Through that, my business was born. I can see how the way I grew up shaped me to be exactly who I needed to be today.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Follow your passion. Quit that job. Get your passport. Move to that new city. Listen to your intuition. Logic will always be there, but logic comes from the stories of others. Not our soul passions or desires. Logic would have never told me to quit my stable job, sell everything, and move to a country where I had no job and didn’t know anyone, but it was the most life-changing experience of my entire life. Tap into what you want out of life. It is short. And stop living to make others happy.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: Feminism means, to me, allowing yourself to trust yourself. As women, we are taught to not let our emotions get in the way. Your emotions are your key to manifesting. Allow yourself to love them! To tap into them. Use them as your guiding force. Your emotions are your power!
