Hey, Soul Sister! Gangster in the Spotlight Series with Courtney Dukes
I’m so excited to have Courtney as the next guest in my monthly Hey, Soul Sister! Gangster in the Spotlight Series
Courtney and I have fast become soul sistas! We both have a love for all things Spell and are proud of our hippie bogan ways! I love that it doesn’t matter that we are nearly a decade apart in age, we are always there to support and love on each other!
Courtney has always dreamed of travel, seeking adventure instead of giving her time away in a job she doesn’t enjoy. She doesn’t want to live for the weekend, she wants freedom and financial abundance to live a life of happiness that aligns with her values. She wants to prove that everyone can live the life of their dreams all you have to do is pursue it!
Tell us a bit more about yourself and your journey – who you are and who you were before the Gratitude Gang & The Conscious Collective?
I’m just an average 24 yr old Aussie girl on a journey of reaching my ultimate happiness! I come from a small town in NSW and when I finished year 12 I shipped myself off to University with my life all planned out because that’s what we are supposed to do right? I ended up quitting University because it just didn’t feel right and feeling a bit lost I got a job purely for financial gain. For 4 years all I did was live for the weekend. I was unfulfilled, unhappy, surrounded by negative people and constantly comparing me and my life to everyone else around me.
How did the GG and TCC come into your life – why did you join in the first place?
I was at my lowest. I was depressed, anxious and felt like there was no hope. I was looking for a way out, I felt stuck and that’s when I saw my bestie Bianca join the Conscious Collective and I didn’t hesitate to jump in too! I didn’t need any convincing after seeing the freedom and financial abundance people were gaining from this opportunity and that’s all I wanted in life.
What has changed in your life since joining? What have you been able to achieve?
It always makes me so emotional when I think about it because everything has changed! I have grown as a person and am the happiest I have ever been. I’m confident, loving who I have become and how I now get to lead my life. My health and wellbeing is the best it has ever been and I can take time for myself now instead of giving it to others. I’m no longer tied down by the traditional J.O.B and I’m travelling and adventuring more then I ever have before which has always been my biggest goal. I am free!
What do you love most about the GG and TCC?
Freakin everything!! I can be me with no judgement and no fear. I now have passion and purpose in a job I love that aligns with who I want to be and how I want to live my life. I have gained sisters that uplift me every damn day who are such a shining light in my life. Something I’ve never had before!
But most of all, I have the opportunity to make a positive impact and show other young women my age this is possible. We can break the mould, live a life of freedom, choice and create our ultimate happiness.
What are you excited about for the future? What’s the big dream?!
Adventuring!! Travel and discovering new places has been my life’s goal since I was 15 and now that I’ve had a taste I won’t be turning back. I want to bring Luke home so we can travel more together, spend more time doing what we love and give Luke the opportunity to pursue his dreams as well. We just bought a house to renovate in the beautiful snowy mountains but we won’t be settling down just yet because the world is our oyster!
Also, to never ever have to give up my freedom and happiness ever again!
Message to people thinking about joining and upleveling their health, wealth and lifestyle?
Say yes!! Nothing is holding you back but yourself. You shouldn’t let anyone dictate who you should be or what you should become. You are the only person that can create the life you want and your ultimate happiness, no one else. So why wait? The time is now!
