Who Inspires Me The Most?

Who Inspires You The Most?

I’m busy planning my new products to help you write your own book this year and I’m almost ready to release the first one – a couple of hours on the weekend and we are there!  While I’ve been working on it I’ve been thinking about who inspires me the most when I’m hanging out online. You know, you’re busily writing, making lists, pretty checklists and preparing for audio recordings…..and your mind wanders to that cool blog post you just read by one of your favourite online peeps! I figured I’d tell you about the amazing women I know (or … Get the rest

Being Yourself Is The Key To Your Happiness!

Be your crazy self!

Being yourself is so much easier than you might think. And being yourself is so much harder than it seems! I’ve spent years not being myself. Dressing up for job interviews when I knew it was going to kill me to keep up that level of grooming for the years I would work there. Turning over a new leaf to wear more makeup and keep my hair fancily styled and groomed and then chucking it in after 4 weeks or so because it was just too much bloody effort! I had 4 small kids – how was I supposed to … Get the rest

We All Go Off Track Sometimes. This Was My Time!

Bad Tracey Pedersen!

Have you noticed I’ve been M.I.A. for a couple of weeks?  I thought about just writing a cheery new post and not telling you why.  I wondered if anyone would even notice really – maybe I could just press on? But no.  That wouldn’t be me.  I’m an open book type of girl.  I’m the chick that shares her photos that make her look like she’s eating poo——->>> And I firmly believe in sharing all the gory details when things go pear shaped – not just the fun stuff and the great and positive stuff.  Don’t get me wrong – … Get the rest

Why Aren’t You Taking ACTION?

It’s not a hard question.  Doesn’t need a long answer. WHY AREN’T YOU TAKING ACTION? Why haven’t you done what you said you would do? Why did you stop half way? Why can’t you seem to get moving now that you’ve stalled? Why haven’t you written that book, published that book, created that online product, started that membership site, lost weight, taken up knitting, finished your nursing course and any number of other things? Whatever answer you’ve just come up with, let me tell you that I’m here to help you. When you don’t take action, you feel yuk!  You … Get the rest

How Do You Manage To Block Out All The Noise Online?

A few days ago I asked you to think about whether you were fully aware of the opportunity you held in your hand.  If you’re keen to succeed online I hope you thought about it and implemented some ACTION! The flipside of this is that the internet can overwhelm you like nothing else on earth, except maybe parenthood! We all need to find ways that we can manage to block out the internet ‘noise’! While there are thousands of online opportunities and an almost unlimited number of ways to be successful and earn an income online, there are also unlimited chances to … Get the rest

Live Your Greatness And Let It Shine!

What do you think about greatness? Do you secretly think you’re great but would hate for anyone to notice? Or do you strive to be fabulous in everything you do and you make sure that everyone sure-as-shit knows it? For me, it’s somewhere in the middle.  Which is interesting because I’ve never been a middle-of-the-road type of girl! I’m a perfectionist by nature.  Detail oriented and, once upon a time, I could be really anal about stuff.  (I’m so far the other way now that sometimes I wonder if I was ever really that highly strung at all!) No matter … Get the rest

I Slept In? So What? I’m An Adult!!

I'm an adult! You should deal with it!

As you’d all know, I’m running a 30 day giveaway for the entire month of July!  It’s pretty intense since, being me, I’m also participating in another 7 day giveaway while running free strategy sessions and a couple of other blogs too, all at the same time! Yep, it’s a busy time and I really, really love it! I’m also running the giveaway with no technical support.  I know how to do everything so I’m just doing it! And did I mention that for an extra challenge I decided to make each of the products as I go?  There aren’t … Get the rest

What Does Freedom Really Mean To You?

Freedom to be yourself

Is that a question you’ve ever considered before? What Does Freedom Really Mean To You? Before I decided to leave behind the only life I had known, the concept of freedom hadn’t even occurred to me. I knew I hated being told what to do at work. I knew I thrived and achieved the most when I was left to my own devices to do my own thing. I knew I hated housework. I hated cooking dinner. And I hated having to be at work at a certain time and put in a certain number of hours (in fairness to … Get the rest

No More Vanilla Living Takes Shape On traceypedersen.com!

pros and cons of working full time!

What do I want this site to be about? How can I get the message out there that just because we’ve slipped into a vanilla lifestyle, it doesn’t mean we can’t change our lives to become more chocolate? Who am I to even tell you that you must be chocolate? You can be raspberry! You can be candy floss! I am particularly partial to macadamia nut too! The point is you choose your flavour from here on in! You decide how you want your life to look! That’s where I come in. With a bit of luck you’ll find something … Get the rest
