In this Casa De Confidence Podcast episode, I speak with Courtney McKenna, who joined us live from her childhood bedroom. She is a musician and singer-songwriter. During our conversation, she shared how incredible it is to see how far she has come from her days of singing at church.
Courtney went to school for marketing, and after college, she went to New York and soon realized that although she enjoyed the different creatives she held, she was most passionate about her music.
It took some time for Courtney to find the belief in herself fully. One of the main things she has learned is that the more confidence she has in herself, her music career and business grow exponentially.
Courtney spoke candidly about her relationship with her alcoholic dad. Her dad has played a big part in her life and music. As the oldest of two kids, she blamed herself for her dad's addiction.
She wrote her song "Save Yourself" for her dad, which helped her release many of the emotions she has dealt with.
Courtney learned the power of
Music can be healing, and she can impact others through her art.
Courtney shares that confidence comes from showing up for yourself and giving yourself space to do the things you love and enjoy.
We also speak about becoming an expert at anything; we must have over 10K hours of practice (from the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell).
