Hello lovely.  I’m just back from my massage, high on endorphins and low on words. This was my treat to myself post completing my book manuscript.  That 200 page baby is in.  Wowsa.  Someday soon I’ll tell you about my final freakout and the encouragement of soul friends which got me through it, but for now I’m kind of sick of words.  So for this week I just want to share a few of my recent favorite pics: bowls of fruit that make me feel abundant,  my little one showcasing her art skillz at a city wide show and if you can’t read my gilded temporary tattoo message it says “Keep Writing Forward.” If we aren’t already I’d love to connect with you on Instagram and Facebook, where these were first shared. I’m wondering where do you find #everydaybeauty?

Also as I mentioned last week my developmental editor suggested that I do a beta test of my book ideas before publishing later this year which I think is such a fun idea.  So I am going to be offering a special coaching program in April to share this whole new body of work!  It will include both virtual and in person components as well as group and one on one coaching.  Plus the opportunity to be an early reader for excerpts of my new book!  I’m soooo excited to share my eight step formula for how to unlock your greatest professional and creative contributions and flourish in your personal life.  It is going to be a very limited offering so if you are interested reach out to me at cp@courtneypinkerton.com to let me know and I’ll share the details!

xoxo Courtney


Just one spot remains at my Flourish retreat! – Will you be joining Jeni and other amazing women in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico?  If you’ve been flirting with the idea I’d encourage you to go ahead and sign up now!  It is shaping up to be a magical group of women and I would so love for you to be a part of it. Plus I’ll be teaching this 8 step Flourish content live for the first time!  Let’s run away to Mexico together!
