Courtney Taylor, better known as ‘The Modern Day Physic’ named by a newspaper in the early stage of her career, started her career in the entertainment industry. Leaving for LA at the age of 18 years old to work in a public relations firm where she realized not too long after that she wasn’t living out of her purpose and her most authentic self. Since the environment was not authentic, she kept her career in public relations back home in Toronto, Canada and started her own firm, and it was clear that PR wasn’t her thing, because she was still unhappy.
She turned her pain into her purpose and helped women work through healing trauma and pain through mediumship and guidance from spirit. She knew her whole life that she was gifted and had psychic abilities. Although she couldn’t name it or define it, she always felt completely different and misunderstood. Her parents didn’t have the tools to understand that she had these abilities which is part of her today’s mission to provide tools to harness these gifts.
Courtney is able to do this through the transformational coaching business she runs, where she supports women in doing the deep healing work and helping them tap into their psychic abilities. As a psychic medium, her major goal and mindset is to educate women on how to use their spirit team to guide their life decisions from building a business to finding their right partner. ‘Her Modern Day Psychic’s method is broken down into psychic mediumship, crystal therapy, energy medicine and therapeutic tools’.
Despite the fact that everything looks like a simple journey towards success, Courtney recalls a lot of challenges when starting a business and getting where she is today. She believes that keeping an overall goal in mind, trusting yourself and the people you bring on to work with you can be difficult, but trusting that you are where you’re supposed to be will take sometime. When you gain that confidence, you will grow as a person and entrepreneur.
Mindset is the key when starting your own business, and in your day to day life. Mindset is so connected to being mindful and present. Those are the two most important keys when creating or sustaining a successful business, otherwise we can easily get off track and feel like we have failed, and that is a mindset we don’t want to sit in. Our mindset needs to be focused on our goals and all the things that we are planning to achieve.
As someone who has been able to find success, Courtney always advises other young entrepreneurs looking to start their own business, to trust your intuition and minimize the noise around you.
Fear for me is an emotion that holds you back from taking the next step, a step that could be a life changing step forward. Over the years, I have looked many of my fears in the face, knowing it was the only way to succeed and scale my business. “Fears arise when we don’t feel safe, or feel like we might be in danger, but as a psychic-medium, it is my goal to help relieve some of the unknown and create direction, minimizing fear.”
Her biggest obstacles so far in her career have been trusting the people she hires to work with her. Trusting that she is where she is supposed to be and letting go her obsession about every business detail. “ Your business is your baby and you want to protect it.”
She highly differentiates herself from competitors because she is unique in what she does, as she is a social worker with a counseling background. She is able to confidently guide individuals towards their purpose and heal deep trauma using her team spirit. She teaches mediumship and works with women to develop their gift, give predictions and timelines of what is going to happen, but also provides the tools to transform and heal, so the predictions can surface.
Financial freedom for Courtney is being free from money worries, supporting the people she loves and having more time for herself and her loved ones. Financial freedom gives her the opportunity to expand her business by scaling it and hiring a bigger team, which will allow room to step back and let her work happen more passively through her transformational programs.
