Life and Work with Kourtney Swift

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kourtney Swift.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
From the beginning, I had a clear understanding that I wanted to help people. Initially, I thought I would do so by obtaining a criminal justice degree and becoming a police officer. When I was asked, if needed could I “Shoot to Kill”, I instantly realized that no, this wasn’t something I could do. Through a series of what felt like random events, I was introduced to real estate. Immediately, I saw the way that one person could empower and help so many through a single profession and I was instantly hooked. However, it wasn’t until my world was completely turned upside down, did I reveal the most powerful way I could help others. I tapped into an inner strength unlike I had ever known before. I started sharing my story, allowing myself to be open, honest and vulnerable. In turn, the response was incredible, the love, support, and connection I felt was simply magic. The result, every aspect of my life has skyrocketed to a place of success, happiness, and abundance.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Sometimes an opportunity for growth presents itself as a hardship or struggle. For me, this was overcoming depression. In so many respects, it felt as though I suffered from depression for so long. I am not sure if it was an exact moment when things changed or a gradual release from the heaviness of it all. However, once I realized what was really going on with me, I slowly started to make small changes, inch by inch. I started searching for things to lift my spirits and started following some people that inspired me on Instagram. I stopped being a secret about my struggle and started to communicate with those around me about how I was really feeling. I decided to begin using Instagram to share my story, my struggle and my success with each new obstacle and each new lesson. I was internally processing and overcoming these struggles then broadcasting the incredible realizations I was having. The more I shared the things that were inspiring me, my experience with them and the more I tried to help others, the better I felt.

I had been listening to people like Gary Vaynerchuk, who is an incredible businessman and motivator. He helped me take a look at my mindset and perception. Through listening to him and others, I started to see everything so clearly. I realized that I needed to be grateful for all of the wonderful things I had in my life instead of focusing on all of the things that seemed to be weighing me down. I knew I needed to move towards the things that brought me joy, that inspired me and steer clear of toxic people and places that held me back. Gary talked a lot about the need to become laser focused on what we want and to be intentional in everything that we do. I started applying these thoughts and principles in my life and more and more, I could sense the fog lifting and the pain lessening.

Then, I decided to set a huge goal for myself to meet the man you had inspired me so much, Gary V. You see, I believe that once a decision is made in our hearts, that we really know what we want and are willing to do anything for it then we can make it happen. Because of my mindset, my commitment to my decision, I was able to achieve something I once thought was impossible, I have a date with Gary V to enjoy some of his delicious wine!

My advice for any young person trying to achieve more with their life is to believe in yourself first and foremost. Believe that anything you truly put your heart and your mind to, you can and will achieve. Take the time every morning to close your eyes and picture your goal, really see it and feel the excitement of reaching that goal. Stay committed to your goals, always be 100% present and always stay in gratitude because you will attract in your life the thoughts, feelings, and things you focus on. Also, spend time trying to help others. Zig Ziglar said: “You can have everything in life you want if you just help other people get what they want” Allow yourself to be vulnerable, always be genuine and don’t ever let anyone steal your sparkle!
