She believed she could, so she did …

My name is Tracey Sweetland and I am a professional writer, designer and business owner.

After a 20+-year career as a journalist and sub-editor, in 2014, I found myself facing redundancy.

Instead of focusing on the negatives, I saw this as an opportunity to find my brave and, alongside three colleagues, decided to set up my own local newspaper and later my own marketing and design agency.

About Me

My Values

I believe in honesty, fairness and respect. I wear my heart on my sleeve, stick to my guns, make decisions, find solutions and get things done. I am always striving to be the best I can be and to help others do the same.

My Career

From reporter, sub-editor and web editor to co-founder of an independent newspaper, I am now focused on growing my marketing and design agency and helping other small businesses to write the next chapter in their success stories.

My Interests

I am a family-loving mad cat lady with a penchant for names beginning with K. I can often be found knee-deep in horse poo. I am a self-confessed TV box set binger with a weird nostalgia for literary kings, 80s rock gods and country and western crooners.

My Skills

It’s no surprise that I can tell a good story, create winning websites and drum up a design which speaks a thousand words, but what really rocks my boat is helping other business owners to reach for the stars.
