I feel like everyone blogs but me, and the longer I wait, the less relevant I feel. But, after reading 157 articles on being authentic, and sharing who you really are with your customers, fans, and loyal subjects, here we are. I say "we" because I'm going the positive route and assuming at least one person is reading this. Mom? You're here, right?
I know I have a lot to say - just ask anyone who knows me; and because there's so much material floating around in my brain to choose from, for my first post I thought it would be more interesting to tell you three things about myself that wouldn't typically be included in the standard "Hi, my name is Courtenay and I'm married and have two kids" introduction blog post. Here goes...
Random Thing #1: I'm an Investigation Discovery FREAK! I became consumed with the Casey Anthony trial to the point I was so angry I cried when the jury read the verdict. I bought my first true crime book that night, and I've been hooked ever since. I have read at least 300 true crime books, and it's difficult for me to get into a TV show or movie if it didn't really happen.
Random Thing #2: Even though I own two businesses that are somewhat successful, I constantly feel like I can do more. I don't think I'll ever be satisfied and to a point where I'll say "Okay, I did it. That's all I want to accomplish. Bye!" There is this underlying force that drives me to do more, reach higher, never stop! If anyone else feels like this, please comment below, or send me a message so we can be driven weirdos together ;-)
Random Thing #3: I learned a long time ago that an ambitious life is a lonely life. It used to bother me that friends were hard to come by, but it doesn't really anymore. First of all, my husband is freaking hilarious, and I'm always laughing when we are together so I don't feel like I'm missing out on that part of having a lot of friends. Secondly, I suck at being a friend. I try really hard, but my priorities have always been my husband, kids, family, and my business. I look at it like this: We have one shot, one go round during our time here on Earth. Make it count! Every single one of us have what it takes to kick ass and get what we want, but really only a handful of us actually do it. I'm not okay sitting back and not grabbing what is mine. If I don't try, then someone else will. So again, if anyone can relate to my number 3, comment or reach out so we can be kick ass chicks together, okay?
I have no clue what the hell I'm going to write about next time, but I do know that it'll have more stuff about jewelry in it. I hope you liked this post. Let me know - I'd love to hear from you!Continue reading
