|Brooks Barrington Courtney, a 50-year-old product developer, P90X coach, Bible study teacher and President of a successful on-line business called MorningStar Innovations & Design, Inc. lives right here in North Port, Florida.
Courtney was born in Sarasota on Sept. 12, 1963. He lived in Houston, Texas for 18 years where he graduated from Memorial High School in 1982.
Courtney met his lovely wife Bren over 20 years ago and they have been happily married for 15 years. They have 2 daughters, Jessica & Cody. The Courtney’s settled in the North Port Estates where they run their growing family business from their home.
Brooks and Bren have been active members of New Life Assembly of God in Venice for the past 15 years and Courtney has been a Bible study teacher there.
The Courtney’s attribute their business successes to their love and faith in God and the belief that God has greater plans for their lives. On his website Courtney can be quoted saying “I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for granting me the courage and the ability to follow my dreams”. Courtney gives a complete testimony of faith on his website – check it out by clicking on the “God is Faithful” link at www.EZ-Level.com.
Courtney, former President of MorningStar Kitchens & Bath, Inc., specialized in high-end custom kitchens. When asked about how and why he invented the EZ-Level System he said, “we would have these enormous custom cabinet jobs and it would take my entire crew half a day just to level everything, this is why we developed the new EZ-Level system”. This system is extremely accurate, fast, easy and incredibly strong. Each set of levelers can hold 700 lbs. of weight, so they can support any type of counter top, Granit, quartz or even concrete.
Courtney has also provided dozens of “how to” videos on the website. Roughly 1200 people are watching those videos per day! Courtney not only stars in the instruction videos, but he also filmed and edited all of them himself. “I wanted to provide as much information as I could to help people tackle the task of leveling and installing their cabinets,” he said.
Courtney holds multiple patents and he took a leap of faith by launching his first product, (the EZ-Leveling System) in 2008. The EZ-Levelers went global in that first year and they are selling all over the world! He launched his second product, the Quick-Jig just this year.
The Quick-Jig is the only knob and handle jig that works with any size handle and on any drawer, no matter how heavy the trim.
Courtney anticipates launching 3 more products this year (patents are processing) and with these products hopes to bring even more job opportunities to North Port and surrounding areas.
His business is based in North Port and most of their products are manufactured in the USA (Venice, FL) with few exceptions.
