Interview with Cortney

Are you HIGHLY SENSITIVE? Click to find out!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WHAT YOU DO AND HOW DID YOU BECOME “THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE BADASS?”

This question can be answered by a defining moment in my life. It was a gorgeous, sunny, spring day and I was in tears sitting outside on my patio. As tears streamed down my face, I sat there feeling like a failure. Again. I felt like I had failed because I couldn’t seem to figure out how to make my coaching business a success. I was stuck in overwhelm, thoughts of “Why can’t I figure this out? What am I missing? Why can’t I handle this?” swimming around in my head. Ultimately, the very painful thought, “What’s wrong with me?” came to the surface as I sat there, sobbing.

I knew that I was here to serve a larger purpose. I knew that I was here to help others and contribute to the world. I knew my purpose…but I couldn’t make my dreams a reality. I kept getting overwhelmed by my client’s emotions, depleted every time I took big action and put myself out there, and felt like a failure every time I was challenged.

I was at odds with myself, and it was deeply painful.

What I didn’t know was that it was my lack of self-care and total ignorance of the power of my mindset that was keeping me stuck. I had never learned how to prioritize myself in a way that would keep my energy high. I knew the basics of self-care and I thought that’s what I was doing, but I had no idea what true, deep self-care really was.

I didn’t know that self-care and mindset are the key to success in every area of life. 

At this point, I was a practicing health coach, having graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012. I decided to move my own self-care to a new level. It was this journey of learning to love every single part of myself, diving into self-care and mastering my mindset that led to the tools that birthed the program: The Highly Sensitive Badass. It was about coming home to who I was and showing this to the world. It was about putting myself first and loving every inch of who I am.

After putting these tools and strategies into practice, I am living my purpose, managing a business as a solo-preneur that allows me to thrive and find balance in my life, my previously closed-off relationship with myself has blossomed, my relationship with my husband has massively transformed, and I’m a better and more compassionate mother, wife, friend, sister and daughter.

When I realized how much my life had changed by implementing these tools and strategies, I knew I was onto something and I was ready to help other sensitive women change their lives, embrace their sensitivity and liberate themselves from their struggle.

I’ve been taking more training programs ever since! (In my “past” life, I earned my Master’s Degree in Architecture and studied Art History at Vassar College). Since 2012, I’ve studied with Regena Thomashauer at The School of Womanly Arts, relationship expert, Stacey Martino, and I’m an avid student of metaphysics, manifestation and Buddhism. My spiritual journey began at a young age and continues to this day. I am passionate about helping women tap into their unique, feminine brilliance through divine self-care with a focus on spiritual growth, so they can live their highest purpose, reach their full potential and live an amazing life. To read more about why I was drawn to coaching, please read more about my story.

WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS EXACTLY?

I work with women just like you, who are driven, sensitive, spiritual, empathic and/or intuitive. As one myself, we speak the same language. I find that we “get” each other on a soul level and that allows us to go deep! Many of my clients are high achieving entrepreneurs, healers, lightworkers, coaches, teachers, artists, caregivers, stay at home moms – basically, any sensitive woman who wants this world to be a better place and knows that how she shows up in this world has a huge impact. I work with women who are serious about opening up to all they are capable of! (and a select few, amazing men.) 🙂 I love working with whole-hearted, loving and passionate people.

WHAT TYPE OF PERSONALITY DO YOU WORK BEST WITH AND WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME?

The Highly Sensitive Badass programs are for people who are serious and committed about creating a life they love. As a high achieving and committed woman myself, I work best with other high achieving, spiritual women and men who are open-minded, ready to take responsibility for their lives, and ready to take action! If you are an explorer, a seeker, love learning new things, open to transformation, love spirituality, personal growth and development, loving (one of my favorite qualities in a person!) and have a true desire to transform, then we are a great fit! I do not expect you to be perfect. Like… at all. I simply expect you to show up for our calls, do the homework, and to reach out if you’re struggling.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM NOT FOR?

As someone who is very sensitive to energy, our connection has to be a great fit for both of us, so I am very selective about who I work with.

The Highly Sensitive Badass program is NOT the right fit if you are not willing to do the work, don’t have the time to devote to our work, are feeling financially desperate, or if you’re not excited to jump in. It’s normal to have a bit of fear of the unknown when you start this work, but there should still be a gut-level excitement when you think of working together. This takes a level of commitment, of willingness to be open to trying new things, desiring to create new possibilities for yourself and taking personal responsibility, so if you’re not feeling ready, it might not be the right time for you. If you’re not there yet, no judgment. Just come see me when you’re ready!

This is also not a great fit if you are in the middle of healing from a trauma, suffering from severe mental health issues. I am not a therapist, so if you are experiencing deep depression or anxiety (I’ve been there!) and it is currently governing your life, then it’s best if you see me once you are over the hump and able to better focus on our coaching. If this is the case, I am sending so much love your way. I know how hard that can be.

This also not a great fit if you are a chronic complainer, skeptic or someone who makes excuses for not doing the work. Again, this is all about energy, and if you are giving your energy away at every turn and not willing to take personal responsibility, this is a relationship that will not work.

Finally, I am not an expert in HSP’s who’s particular situation is high sensitivity to sensory input: loud noises, skin sensitivities, etc. As HSP’s we all have sensitivity to sensory input, but for some of us, it is more intense. If this is your primary issue, this program is not designed to help with that simply because I have not been trained for this particular issue.

If you’re not exactly where you need to be to work together, it just might not be the right time yet! I encourage you to keep reading my blog posts, implementing the strategies in my eBook, and following me on social media and in my Facebook group.

DOES THIS REALLY WORK?

Yes!!!! Caveat: If you do the work. Remember, transformation comes from within. I am the guide, but you are the miracle-worker. We will work together to reach your goals, but it’s up to you to take responsibility and take the lead so you can soar.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Big ones! This is a hard one to categorize because when you start working on an improved relationship with yourself, everything else in your life transforms for the better. Areas you will see transformation include:

  • Relationships with your partner, friends, family, co-workers, kids, strangers on the street…everyone
  • Career: either discovering your true purpose or stepping into your current career in a much bigger and more aligned way
  • Happiness: overall increase in happiness and joy
  • Self-esteem and Self-confidence: these will rise exponentially!
  • Your health and relationship with food: learn how to nourish your body with food that supports you
  • Your Physical Environment: finding more harmony and peace in your home or work environment

CAN I CONTACT SOME OF YOUR CURRENT OR FORMER CLIENTS TO SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU?

Absolutely! Simply ask me when we do our Clarity Call, or email me at cortney@cortneychaite.com and I can put you in touch with some of my clients.

IS THIS PROGRAM WORTH THE MONEY?

Absolutely!

I realize that investing in yourself can be one of the scariest things to do, but I know from a lot of experience (both with myself and my clients) that investing in yourself is the most powerful affirmation and intention that you are open and willing to step into your greatness. We devalue ourselves every single day and it is time for this to end. This program is about valuing yourself on every level, and the first lie that we need to overcome is that we are not worth investing in. Everything is energy. When you put energy into self-love instead of fear, massive shifts happen.

One of best ways to answer this question is to ask yourself how much it is currently costing you to stay stuck where you are?

Is it costing you:

  • Your relationships?
  • Your career and money?
  • Your self-esteem?
  • Your life purpose?
  • Your health?

Here are some personal examples: Do you know that at one point in my business, I calculated that I was actually losing at least $10-$20,000 a month if I stayed stuck where I was? Guess how easy it was to make the decision to invest in myself so I could move through my block and take action? It was a no-brainer!

Another personal example: when I first started changing my diet and my life, I was very wishy-washy about taking action, so I asked myself this question: What is it costing me not to change? Turns out that I got in painful touch with the fact that I was not being the mother I wanted, I was being a bad role-model for my kids, and I was on the verge of ruining my marriage because I was so unhappy – yuck. It was costing me a lot and when I started thinking about all I could lose, it motivated me to take action and the literal financial cost felt like an investment in everything I loved rather than a “cost.” It made my decision easy.
