THE BUSY BOYCOTT: How to be More Productive and Less Busy at Work (and Life)
Let’s be honest: sometimes, being busy makes us feel better. If we’re busy, it’s easy to feel that we matter more, right? But I’ve found that staying busy can keep us from focusing on what really matters, true productivity, meaningful work, and sometimes even knowing ourselves. It’s easy to hide behind busyness as a distraction from the GOOD work of our lives. In this presentation, Courtney helps audiences recognize their busy triggers, identify ways to more productively and proactively boycott busy for improved clarity and meaning in their work and in their lives.
SHOW UP FOR YOUR LIFE: Eliminate Distraction and Create More Presence for Your Life and Those You Love (for women’s groups)
The most important thing you can do for your family, your work and your heart is show up and be fully present. Courtney was living the “American Dream”. A great job, making good money, big house, fancy things…but it was killing her. Her wake up call came in 2006 when her doctor sat her down to explain her newfound diagnosis — Multiple Sclerosis. That diagnosis set her on a course of reclaiming her life. Courtney slowly charted a course toward elimination — elimination of the stress, the crippling debt, the stuff she’d packed into her house…to find a new life with a lot LESS stuff, but so much MORE meaning, love and peace. In this talk, Courtney shares with women how they too, can reclaim the life they’re longing for by helping them create a “why to” list and then share “how tos” with specific recommendations for their journey back to themselves. Learn how to eliminate distraction and create more presence to show up for your life and the people you love
BE MORE WITH LESS
It’s high time you create the space and attention for what matters most to you at home and at work by eliminating needless decisions, meaningless clutter, destructive relationships and anything else standing in the way of a life that makes you smile 99 times a day. Be more with less is about simplifying your life and really living. In this presentation Courtney will walk audiences through how living with less creates time and space to discover what really matters. Through decluttering, and focusing on the best things instead of all the things, the audience will learn to create a life with more savings and less debt, more health and less stress, more space and less stuff, and more joy with less obligation.
HEALTH TALK FOR MS AND OTHER AUTO-IMMUNE CONDITIONS
It’s easy to lose ourselves in a scary diagnosis. We rely on doctors, advice from the internet, and trust anything that looks like a quick fix. Or we just give up and become a victim of our disease. Real healing requires more than a pill or prescription. Real healing takes time and a combination of strong doctor/patient relationships, lifestyle changes, and remembering that we know our bodies better than anyone else. In this presentation, Courtney helps patients…
• Become their own advocate
• Reclaim hope and power
• Create a partnership with medical professionals
• Embrace lifestyle changes and create habits that stick
• Learn to trust themselves
Praise for Courtney’s Speaking:
“If you can get Courtney’s message in front of your people – written, spoken, in pictures, or otherwise – do it. Her compassionate, eloquent, and always practical guidance crosses almost all cultures, languages, and eras.
And from an event organizer’s perspective, she gave me and our shared community everything we wanted, plus the energy and connection we didn’t know we needed until she generously shared it. Concise or story-filled, from one topic to another – I’ve yet to meet anyone who thinks Courtney’s words and warmth are anything less than fantastic.” – Joel Zaslofsky, from SimpleREV.
