What I loved About This Interview
I loved Tracey’s vulnerability in sharing her personal story of going through an abusive relationship and the lessons she learned from this experience. Her perspective on how she healed and how she went on to create a loving relationship with her husband of over 24 years was inspiring. Tracey’s straightforward way of helping us to be aware and accountable, so we can become the best version of ourselves, was just plain awesome. I love that Tracey is using her talents in the fashion industry to make this world a better place and I appreciated her tangible and inexpensive solutions we can all do to make a difference.

These are questions that I asked Tracey outside our interview. You are going to love her answers!
What is 1 thing you believe every woman entrepreneur should know?
Stop being so agreeable!
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge or felt like giving up?
Every move can be a challenge when you are creating something. Giving up is not an option. Go through each and every adversity and grow from it. Be grateful for it.
How did you overcome this?
Being willing and open to grow. Being humble. Learning to own my own participation in things not working out.
What did you learn from it?
What is put on your heart is meant for you. It is ok if others can’t understand or support it.
What is the one area of life or business you have expertise in?
I don’t consider myself an expert. I am not sure anyone really is. We share from common grown, vulnerability, and a willingness to move forward and collaborate. I coach on entrepreneurship, parenting, relationships, marriage, Wellness, Self-care, Fitness, and nutrition. All based on Sustainable Living practices.
What is one thing you want to share about this that will make all the difference for women?
What will resonate with your listeners. I do believe that women can learn to collaborate more with each other. To celebrate every win while moving forward. To realize that we live in seasons and each one serves a purpose. Be willing to allow the growth to happen.
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way?
Never give your power away. At the end of the day, it is up to you.
Please tell me about your family. What is one of the biggest challenges you have faced with balancing work, family, and taking care of yourself & what did you learn from it? What helps you balance these roles now?
I don’t believe in balance. When I think about balance I see scales that are all equally weighted and even. Life can never and will never be that way. Think about your EKG. If it is even, you are dead. Life is about harmony. All things working synergistically together a common goal. Some up and some down. Each one requires a different version of me. I am at the top. I take care of myself first from a place of self-love. This way I have more to give to everything else.
