About | Cortney Overstreet | Create Your Balance


Making time for yourself in a life that pulls you in 50 different directions can feel like writing an energy check you can’t cash.

You try hard to fit in all the things to be successful, take care of the ones who make your heart full, and make your goals happen at the same time.

But it takes its toll on your energy and you know there has to be a better way. You’re exactly right my friend!

I know this because I've lived it.

HI, I'M Cortney Overstreet

I know what it’s like to be out of balance and how to turn it around too. I’m no magician. I just focus on continually improving my life for the better, just like you want to. 

When I was in my 20’s, I’d get stressed out working up to 60 hours a week with my 100% commission sales role and side gig as an NFL Cheerleader. I’d turn to chocolate chip cookies to comfort me then over-compensate at the gym so I could be a certain size.

As I climbed the corporate ladder into my 30’s, I mastered how to be healthy while navigating career goals, long hours, and business travel. I had accomplishments to tout but I wasn’t consistently feeding my inner self so I was always chasing after more on the outside.

A New Perspective

A massive shift occurred as I learned to balance my needs with those of a loved one. When I was 33, my father went to the hospital and was never able to go home again. He needed 24/7 care. I began a new vocation as part caregiver, patient advocate, power of attorney, and devoted daughter.

The game changer was when I gave myself permission to make time for me. At first, guilt would set in if I wasn’t spending all of my free time with my beloved Dad or taking care of things on his behalf. Nothing was as important anyway because I didn’t know how much time he had left and we were so tight.

When I improved how I managed my energy it made all the difference. I began exercising efficiently, eating healthy on the go, and nourishing myself with inner stillness. It made the quality of time we spent together skyrocket because I was able to show up for myself and him with elevated energy.

My experience with my father’s decline in health and his passing changed me forever. It was at times stressful, painful, bittersweet and filled with beautiful gifts all at the same time. One of these gifts is that it lit a fire underneath me to take excellent care of myself mind, body, and spirit no matter what.

My intention is to share this gift with you.

You don’t need to have had a dramatic experience like I did to inspire you to love yourself enough to discover your inner strength and create your balance.

If any part of my story resonates with you, then you’re ready to take steps to create your balance.

I’m here to make it more simple and more powerful for you.
