Since the first lockdown in March 2020, Courtney Black has become a household name with her app, with 835,000 Instagram followers doing live work outs and her funny, honest and open attitude on social media documenting her highs and lows.
After ditching her office job at an accountancy firm in central London, Courtney launched into becoming a full-time personal trainer.
Not only that, with 65,000 paid subscribers at £15.99 on her Courtney Black Fitness app, the 24-year-old is raking it in, too. That's over a million pounds a month!!
I had the privilege of meeting Courtney and finding out a little more about her which was truly inspiring. After last weeks photo with David Walliams I also asked for some tips on weight loss!! :-)
We talked about how she started her career as a professional dancer but worked dried up with the pandemic so she started training to be an accountant with a top 5 accountancy practice in London.
In her heart though she felt it wasn't right and absolutely hated it, even putting her head on a radiator in the toilets so she could say she had a temperature and they would send her home!
Then that light bulb moment, let's video some workouts from home and post them on line. The rest is history as they say even in this short time.
I am a big believer you have to enjoy what you do otherwise why bother putting yourself through the pain and misery?
Here at Wheatsheaf Print I encourage my staff to turn up to work with a smile on their face, it makes you feel better but it will also make your colleagues feel better.Why don't you try it today?
