    Fear can actually propel us to live a life beyond our wildest dreams if we are willing to embrace the fear.  This episode is all about one of the most fearful events that happened to me five months ago.  This event terrified me and evoked tons of health issues.  I felt like I was dying as I had never experienced anxiety in my life.  I did not even believe in anxiety before this happened. First, I share about creating a structure with this Podcast and I invite you to listen in to some other episodes to hear guests share wonderful tips and tools to help calm your soul. These guests appeared because of this experience I had. They are a gift. After many many tests, blood work, doctors, and other modalities to 'fix' myself, I found help. With this help has come new freedom and happiness.  The biggest aha was all the fear that was bottled up inside of my soul.  Finding freedom from this fear has been an incredible journey and a gift from God. My experience has been that pain often has to be so bad in order for m

  • #41 Goals, Values and Spending Alignment with Carenna Willmont

    14/10/2019 Duración: 25min

    Do you know your numbers?  I meet with clients all the time who have no idea of their profits and losses from month to month.  It took me a long time to understand the importance of knowing my numbers in business. Numbers tell the truth. They tell us if we should proceed with the business or shut the doors.  I had been in business for several years, owned my own home and met my husband, Bobby. I came flying in the door one day and proceeded to tell him how awesome I was! Ha! I said, look how much I made this month as I showed him my PNL (profit and loss statement) from my bookkeeper! I increased by $2000! I was overjoyed.  Bobby, who is a CPA, is very business savvy. He did not miss a beat, he pointed to the number on the bottom of the sheet, the NET and said no you didn’t, look what you spent. You spent this amount, therefore you made less than last month. I was SHATTERED . . . and guess what? I did it again with him until I was able to calm down and have him show me how the PNL actually worked. I will neve

  • #40 Falling Down

    Accountability is key for achieving all things of greatness in life. My experiences and those I consult and mentor have proven this to be true.

    26/04/2019 Duración: 50min

    Welcome to Alaska Tracy podcast.  I am thrilled that you are here and so excited to share this episode with you. I was following a lady on Instagram and became very intrigued with her photos as well as seeing that she had just written a cookbook . . . lo and behold, this is her fifth cookbook in print. So I asked her for an interview and she said yes! I had no idea what to expect when I started the interview with LaDonna Rose Gunderson. When I clicked on “video,” LaDonna and her husband Ole were sitting in their car in the Ketchikan harbor smiling back at me. They said this was the best place for reception in Ketchikan. Come to find out LaDonna and Ole have one of the most amazing stories!!!  I had tears in my eyes in the first 5 minutes! Their story is one of adventures, overcoming challenges, and an amazingly beautiful marriage of 34 years. They spend all their time together and a lot of it working side-by-side on their 32-foot aluminum fishing boat in Southeast Alaska. So the interview ended up being wa

    15/03/2019 Duración: 19min

    “Live your life on purpose.” —Crystal Paine With the help of an amazing community and mentor in my life (and a super supportive husband), the new business logo and tagline is completed! The logo that was in use in the past was geared toward social media marketing which the company was helping businesses with from 2011-2016. In 2016 the business shifted to Vision Mapping, essentially helping business owners to create an intentional 12-month plan for success. It blossomed into workshops, retreats, working with management teams and women’s retreats, all with a common purpose: to guide businesses and individuals through a detailed system I created over my 20 years as an entrepreneur.  This system is a visually written plan with actions, accountability, and success tracking. It serves as a compass to achieving the desired results. The finished product (compass) is strategically built so that when life happens, the specifics, e.g., dates, times, who, what, when, where, and how will encourage one to get back on t

  • Episode #36 - Surrendering All Fears

    19/12/2018 Duración: 22min

    The Holidays can be oh so very stressful for many of us! Stress can keep us stuck, depressed, feeling hopeless and out of control.  It is an icky place to be, take it from me! I wanted to share with you how I walked through FEAR of the recent Earthquake in Alaska.  Mother Nature is beyond our control as well as many of life's uncertainties. We can control how we react to situations and life's obstacles. We can control what we are focusing on. Life will happen and we get to choose how we will react and how we will treat others. One of the tools I use is meditation.  Meditation is a way of creating a 'pause' in all my reactions. New or unclear how to start a meditation practice? Check out Episode #21 Vision Reboot where I guide you through a short meditation.  I also have practiced guided meditation with Tara Brach for years. She has helped me when flying and hitting turbulence in the air and on the ground! She offers a Facebook Live Guided meditation weekly too.   Remember to subscribe to catch the latest A
