Vision Board Creation ~ Simplified

Posted on by Tracy in business, entrepreneur, goals, Grow, growth, struggle, Success, vision | No Comments

How many times have you heard the word Vision Board and thought,  that is so ‘woo-woo‘? From time to time I run into small business owners that have felt ‘stuck’ in their business and I have shared the Vision Board process.  Often times they tune me out before I fully explain how it works. I have even had people say that vision boards go against their beliefs in life. I get the impression people think that Vision Boards are cutting up pretty pictures of big fancy homes and cars and pasting them on a board.   After that, you sit back and bingo!!! The magic happens!!  All the visions become reality!  So, that would be like saying, ‘hello Universe let me tell you ALL my WANTS and NEEDS so you can give them to me’. This has NOT been my experience.  Quite the opposite actually.  It is usually a painful, fearful experience at first. …

Combating Head Chatter

Posted on by Tracy in Anchorage, business, Challenge, entrepreneur, lifestyle, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, struggle, Success | No Comments

Working alone as an entrepreneur or business owner can be challenging.  Often times it’s the ‘head chatter’ that makes for the challenge. How do you combat your ‘head chatter’? Here are several tools that have worked and continue to work for me: 1: Take a Personality Test.  Doing this can give you some insight into how to best complement your personality type so that you can keep your ‘head’ in check. Introverts and Extroverts need different activities to get inspired or motivated and knowing which type of personality you are is a fantastic place to start!  I spent years doing things that didn’t suit my personality type and was often exhausted and had body ailments that could have been avoided. 2. Meditation.  Meditation is all about quieting the mind – not stopping the mind, but slowing it down. Learning to slow down and listen to what our bodies and our hearts are telling us will allow us to give ourselves …

The Illusional Truth of Entrepreneurship

  There is so much that goes into starting and running a successful business.  I get emails all the time from folks asking for advice on how to start their own biz. I believe anyone can be a biz owner; however, one must realize ALL that is involved. I recently heard from someone who said she wanted to do what I do and take a step back, allowing her to put in less work hours per day. I reread the email to my husband and he said, “You must be making it look too easy.” See, the reality is hours and hours and then more hours go into the life of a biz owner. (One that is enriched and paying their bills, that is.) I love to hike, so, some days, I try to arrange my schedule and work in the evenings. Because my evenings are not filled with any hobbies …

What’s a true joy in my life? I get to help others that are looking to start a business. In the past month, I have been approached by folks right out of college with no clue how to go about creating a successful business. For a second, it confused me. I have a two-year degree, and I suppose I just assumed a four-year degree would provide insight on how to create and run a business. So, why not spread my knowledge, you wonder? Well, it has sparked my interest to pursue teaching at universities. Teaching the “how-to’s” and the “ins-and-outs” of being an entrepreneur. These people have reminded me of what I knew back when I started my first business in 2001. I have been reminded of the challenges, heart aches and all the successes. This will be the first entrepreneurial blog in a series, and now it’s time for me to ask you some questions. Below are four questions you must …

The first of many Spiritual Experiences ~ Bali

Posted on by Tracy in Bali, Challenge, Gratitude, growth, miracles, peaceful, sobriety, spiritual experience, struggle | No Comments

I had made a drastic change in my life a year prior to this trip.  I had been given the ‘keys’ to a magical FREEDOM that I had been searching for my whole life.  I had been given the gift of sobriety. I had always felt uncomfortable in my own skin.  From birth, I had felt this way.  Nothing, most painfully including myself, ever seemed to be ‘good enough.’  I tried many ways to feel different about who I was and how I felt.  As I got older (13 years) I realized that alcohol could make me feel just a little different. It was enough that I latched onto it for years and years. At 19 years old, I landed the perfect job for my irritable soul, an airline career that would allow me the opportunity to move around and travel all over the world.  Still feeling uncomfortable and 30+ …

Lost in the Woods & Not Alone

Posted on by Tracy in business, Challenge, focus, Grow, growth, struggle, Success, Uncategorized | No Comments

Recently I was in the woods with my two fur pals Eddie and Zena. It was exceptionally green as we had had several days of rain. I had been on this trail hundreds of times, but somehow, this time, I got disoriented. I started cutting through smaller trails that sprouted off the larger, better groomed trail. Suddenly I had no clue where I was, and darn it… I heard a branch snap

Do you remember being a child and dreaming huge wonderful dreams that moved your soul? Do you remember running so fast that you felt your legs were going to fly right out from underneath you? Or rolling down a hill with your body hitting every single bump in the land and having no fear or worry in the world about getting hurt as you went sailing down that hill of unknown?

On April 1st, I made my Authentic Announcement taking my very own leap of faith. Although real estate had been good to me, I felt my truth calling me to help the business owner or entrepreneur find his or her own Authentic truth. Even two months ago, I had no idea that this would be my path.
