Happy Saturday!

I recorded a quick FB Live Video for you all about how to change the dream. It also includes a mini book reading from one of my favorite sections of The Flourish Formula, which tells you why NOT to read this book.

Also, I want to let you know that I am going to be taking a break from my regular email updates for a couple of weeks.

Is it easy for me to pry my little fingers off the laptop?


Am I going to do it?

Hell, yes.

I’ve got children to hang out with and hikes to hike and Dollywood to visit.

In addition, my husband and I will be checking out Sugar Beach, the venue where I am hosting our next Flourish LIVE retreat in January.

Summer in all of its fullness is such a reminder to EXHALE.

Whether it is a vacation or a snip of fresh basil in your water, I hope that you savor it. And if your inner overachiever won’t let you slow down, simply remind her that downtime fertile void from which your very BEST ideas and contributions emerge.

I’ll be back with new posts later in August!

Love and all the good,


The Flourish Formula is now available in print! 50% of the proceeds go to support Nicaraguan projects like UP Nicaragua, a mentoring program for girls, which are helping to create a more just and beautiful world.

Summer reading, anyone?

Order your copy here. (And thank you to everyone who already has!)

Also I’ve been getting some questions from international readers. First of all let me just thank you for being part of this community. It truly makes me SO happy that we can all connect all over the world to talk about flourishing.

Amazon does have European options. For example here is the link for the UK, and Spain. If Amazon is not available in your country or that printing option doesn’t work well for you, please email us at team@courtneypinkerton.com and we will happily work out a way to get the print book directly in your hands.
