Full Steam Ahead

Posted by Courtney Frye on

Last Thursday I dropped into my email subscribers inbox with some big news. It still seems surreal to say and for those that missed it, here goes... I'm transitioning out of my part-time job in the financial services industry to take on The Painted Pearl full time!

Was this part of my plan all along? Yes, but always off in the future and certainly not right now.

So what changed? EVERYTHING!!! If Covid-19 hadn't come around and forced me to hunker down at home, my kids wouldn't be at home and I'd still be working my part-time job while hustling TPP in the evening hours always wondering how I could level up my business 𝒊𝒇 𝑰 𝒋𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒉𝒂𝒅 𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆.

So how did this big decision come about? I'll tell ya! It revolves around my family, specifically my children! And right now, I'm called to be at home protecting them, teaching them and nurturing them. That's it! No one else can do that better than I can because I am first and foremost a wife and mother before a business owner.

I haven't been shy about how I've pivoted these past couple of months, treating The Painted Pearl as my full-time job because that's exactly what I needed to do while I was home. And for those wondering how my personal friendly banker of a husband is handling this, he's been my biggest cheerleader these last two months. And it was in these months where I learned more about myself as a woman, a wife, a mother AND a business owner.

Turns out, I actually enjoy being at home with my kids. I NEVER THOUGHT I'D EVER UTTER THOSE WORDS. But it's true. Yes, we still have what I call our daily "Oh S&!t" moments. No it's not easy. But more often than not, I look around at my boys who are never more than 6' away from me {literally, they are all up in my bubble} and I realize how much I love it.

These days are long. So very l-o-n-g. But these precious moments with them are fleeting and now more than ever, I want to be present for them. And I want to be present for this sweet business of mine that I've built. So here we go! We're jumping in feet first and I hope you'll join me on this journey because Lord knows I can't do it alone!

So here's how I need your help, now more than ever...

1) I covet your prayers as I take this giant leap of faith! 

2) Follow & Share The Painted Pearl on Instagram & Facebook

3) Gift through The Painted Pearl! Let me help you send your next gift! Complimentary gift wrapping always available upon request.

4) Hit me with your favorite boutiques! I'd be forever grateful if you took two minutes to complete this 4 question form here
