While Tracy Gold may be petite in stature, she packs a wallop in style and personality.
I was introduced to Tracy via a mutual friend and associate, Kuel Life’s very own Menopause Expert Lorraine Miano. Tracy and I grabbed a tea at a local coffee shop in NYC this Fall. The connection was instant. All that remained was ironing out details.
A couple hours later, tea cups empty, bladders full we came up with Fashion Fridays. Twice a month Tracy will share her style tips and hacks with US – the women of Kuel Life.
Welcome Tracy Gold to Kuel Life.
KUELLIFE: What type of business do you own/run?
Tracy: I have three businesses; Tracy Gold Show, a lifestyle show for women over 40, 50, 60 and beyond, Tracy Gold Fashion Tips where I offer Midlife Makeovers and Tracy Gold New York, a customizable clothing line specially designed to suit women’s bodies.
KUELLIFE: What prompted you or drove you to become an entrepreneur? When?
Tracy: I have been an entrepreneur since 2003, which is most of my working life. I have always struggled to fit into a mold or just do one thing. Being an entrepreneur allows me to do a variety of things, explore various business opportunities, learn new skills and have fun doing it.
The Doer Steroid:
KUELLIFE: What’s your biggest struggle?
Tracy: I’m a doer on steroids. One of my biggest life lessons is to do less and be more, to rely less on my plans and to trust more. Yikes! It’s a constant process.
“I often swing between feelings of optimism and feelings of fear of things falling apart”
KUELLIFE: What is your biggest fear as an entrepreneur? How do you work through it?
Tracy: Being an entrepreneur is a very uncertain thing, yet it also means that something big and exciting can happen at any moment. I often swing between feelings of optimism and feelings of fear of things falling apart (which has happened on a number of occasions). I’m learning to recognize when I’m at either extreme, let things settle and ground myself with prayer before making any big decisions.
Making A Difference:
KUELLIFE: How do you measure your success?
Tracy: For me to feel successful I must be doing the work that I love, be making a difference in the lives of women and earning really well doing it.
KUELLIFE: Finally, what advice would you give other women about taking an entrepreneurial path?
Tracy: Discover what you love to do, find the people who need what you have to offer and don’t be afraid to charge what your service or product is worth.
