Posted by Courtney Frye on

It's hard to believe that we're already nearing the end of January 2020! Time - you have my permission to slow down!Β  The weather in NC has been all over the board. From sunny and 70's to bone-chilling 30's and every temperature in between. I've found myself diving in to books, which I like to do in the "slower" months. {Read my January book review here on two great reads this month!} With the end of January drawing near, it's time for my monthly edition of Courtney's Current Crush List. Read on for the highlights of three things I'm digging...

Good Reads: January 2020

Posted by Courtney Frye on

January is my favorite time of year to get lost in a book. At the end of the day, I like to cozy up under the covers and live vicariously through someone else's life. It's the perfect escape from reality when I just need a time out from the chaos of the day.Β  I made a personal goal to read 12 books in 2020. Just 12. To some, that may be a lot. To most, that may be too few. For me, it's a stretch and a challenge because I rarely make the time to read. In a tech savvy...

The best thing I did in 2019...

Posted by Courtney Frye on

The best thing I did for my business in 2019 was simply this...Β  I treated it like a business!! I get asked all the timeΒ how long I've been doing this and the complicated answer is this: The Painted Pearl has been around for 7 years. But those first 5-6 years, I treated it more as a hobby so it ran like a hobby. It wasn't until fall 2018 that the business wheels started turning and as a result, The Painted Pearl ran like a legit business for 2019 and grew by leaps and bounds!Β  That also means I put in...

ο»ΏLet's talk goals, or new years resolutions if that's what you call them!Β  Do you make them? Set them? Stick to them?Β  I've never been one to set them and certainly not stick to them, however, earlier this year, I had a one-day retreat with my sweet childhood friend and business bestie, Heather of Prince Design, and I wrote out a list of 2019 goals for The Painted Pearl.Β  As weΒ close the chapter on this year, I'm looking back over the list and realizing that some goals were met with a solid yes, others with a "not right now" and...
