Courtney Wisely is the founder of Magic Maids (Festus, MO), Rescue My Maid Service, and Spotlight Community Theatre (Festus, MO). I have known Courtney for over 4 years including a few years where we were in a mastermind together. Courtney is relentless in her work ethic and service toward others. She has achieved a very high level of success in her community and the cleaning industry. She has achieved her dreams and enjoys freedom with her son and daughter. This interview deconstructs her success from her highly dysfunctional roots in Bellville, IL and every where in between. After this interview, you will absolutely believe that if Courtney can do it, I can do it.
Here are some quotables from the interview:
"Why give validation to someone that is failing at life about what my future is going to be like. That's insane!"
I asked. "You had a horrible childhood. If you could go back and change anything. If you had an eraser, would you?" Courtney responds. "No. I would be someone different person and I love who I am."
Courtney's favorite book series outside of "Harry Potter" is "Runaways (Orphan Series)" by V.C. Andrews. These books gave the young Courtney the hope and encouragement she needed to escape her childhood. Her favorite professional book is "The Four-Hour Work Week" by Tim Ferriss. This taught Courtney how to work to live vs how to live to work. She lives this life today.
She found her life mentors at Cold Stone Creamery, where Courtney spend most of her 20's. They allowed her to be creating and perform within the Cold Stone culture. This also moved her family to Missouri.
"People are inspired by honesty and inspired by people that actually live their truths and don't care what others think. That's what people want to do, but are too scared to do."
One of the biggest lessons that Courtney learned between doing free Rescue Retreats to charging for her services. "A very important lesson to learn as an entrepreneur. People are going to pay if they actually want to take things seriously."
"I didn't try to force a team together. I let it naturally happen."
"I built what I wanted, so that I could live my dream of living musical theatre."
Thank you Courtney Wisely for your willingness to share your story in such a honest, transparent way. You have done here exactly what you said in the interview. Your honesty has inspired me and definitely many that are listening to this right now. Stay tuned for Courtney's upcoming book called "Relentless".
