Life and Work with Courtney Wilson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Courtney Wilson.

Courtney, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I grew up in the Adirondacks, a state park in New York State. There is where my passion for adventure grew climbing over 100 mountains and learning more about life than I could’ve ever imagined. I always had a passion to adventure out West, but that was part of my wildest dreams. I graduated college last May and set my sights on a life out to Colorado. Finally, this past October, I landed the job of my dreams. I am currently the Social Media and Marketing Specialist for Copper Mountain and it feels like my thirst for adventure is even stronger everyday. I have found the perfect life to work balance, living the life I’ve always dreamed of.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
About as far from smooth as you can get. The main reason why I am the person today is from failure. I’ve gone through so many different experiences in my life with relationships, school, adventures, and everything else that have led me here today. The key to success is growing from these mistakes. Learning from the lessons you have been taught and moving forward with a positive attitude. My advice for young women starting their journey is to pursue your passion. You’re probably thinking, “well duh,” but I mean chase RELENTLESSLY after what you love every single dang day of your life. Find people who are seeking the same things in life as you, people you lift you up and don’t knock you down. Planting yourself in an environment that fosters growth is key to becoming the women you want to be. Don’t surround yourself with negativity because I promise you, you will get stuck. Even if you chase after your passions, you will fail but don’t let that discourage you, let it grow you.

Tell us more about your work; what else should we know?
I am the Social Media and Marketing Specialist for Copper Mountain. I essentially manage their social platforms and get to “live the dream.” Working for Copper Mountain is an honor as they treat their employees with so much care. Through this position, I am able to inspire others to get outside and do the things they love and I can’t think of anything else better to do with my professional skills.

Are there any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve benefited from using?
I am a woman of faith, so my absolute favorite podcast (really only podcast) I listen to is the Elevation Church podcast. Pastor Steve F. enlightens me almost every day to things I was once blind to. I am also an avid reader with almost three bookcases in my collection. Once again, love inspiring books about the gospel and how to improve mindset and outlook on life. I think there is a book for everyone, and reading can help you get so much farther in life.
