Skills

I can tell a good story, create winning websites and drum up a design which speaks a thousand words, but what really lights my fire is lighting the fire in aspiring entrepreneurs to help them break down barriers and achieve their dreams.

 

 Writing and design have been  Tracey’s business for a long time, but starting her own business has lit new fires in her belly to help other aspiring entrepreneurs to reach their goals.

After almost 25 years in journalism, Tracey can always be relied on to tell a good story. Obviously grammar and spelling are strong skills, as is her ability to interact and build rapport with people from all walks of life in one-on-one interview sessions.

As well as years of experience as a reporter, Tracey is a professional sub editor, able to spot a literal at a thousand paces and write an attention grabbing headline with her eyes closed (not literally, obviously!)

You can count proofreading and editing other people’s copy as way up there on the skillometer after years of whipping junior reporters’ copy into shape.

Tracey’s love of newspaper page design has since morphed into a burning enthusiasm for design in general – adverts, corporate brochures, fliers, business cards, logos, leaflets – she loves ’em all!

Websites are also a self-taught speciality.

After learning basic html and css during a brief stint as a web editor in the early noughties, Tracey has dabbled in various website building software, but these days prefers to keep things simple.

WordPress is now her website weapon of choice and she has used it with great success for her own business websites, including spaldingvoice.co.uk, which has thousands of visitors, and rant-media.co.uk.

After successfully launching Rant Media (www.rant-media.co.uk) at the beginning of 2017, Tracey is now upskilling further and has completed training in life coaching and NLP techniques to equip her in her quest to help others conquer obstacles and reach their goals.

Her latest business venture Impetus4 – a four-step programme for success, which includes help with business admin, specialist tasks such as social media and branding, as well as life coaching and business mentoring, can be found at www.impetus4.com.

 

 

Values

Tracey believes in honesty, fairness and respect in all aspects of her life. She wears her heart on her sleeve, sticks to her my guns, makes decisions, finds solutions and get things done. She is always striving to be the best she  can be and to help others do the same.

Career

From trainee reporter to co-founder of an independent newspaper, with stops as internet editor and chief sub-editor along the way, Tracey is now reinventing herself as a business mentor and life coach, designer, marketing consultant and social media manager.

Interests

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