(Confession: I sometimes have a glass of wine in the evening to cope with stress.)
Courtney tells us her amazing story of how after overcoming cancer at the age of 25, she realized that life is WAY too short to waste any time feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and burnt out.
She worked in the corporate world of 9 to 5. Since her main focus was to be successful, she also started a business in network marketing and soon after she found herself consumed by work.
Around the same time Courtney met the love of her life and started planning her wedding.
She says that from the outside it seemed like she was very successful: she had the thriving business, the car, the vacations, the fancy dinners, but in the inside she was barely holding it together. For her, it felt like she was going through the motions, day in and day out. She was working all the time and not enjoying life, her identity was wrapped up in her work.
After her wedding and honeymoon, Courtney went to the doctor for a follow up visit, and much to her surprised, she was told that she had cancer.
