A Journey to the Other Side of a Hot Mess
Braving the Hot Mess started with a personal dream.
A dream where the world is a more loving, kind, compassionate and gentle place for people to explore and experience.
A dream where people recognize their own power to live happy joyful lives while fearlessly going after their dreams.
A dream where we live wholeheartedly.
A dream to create ripples of empowering change that radiate throughout the world. Change your mind, change the world.
Hi, I’m Tracy Traeder and I am honored and grateful to have you visit my website. My hope is that my website and blog will inspire you, invoke thought, that you’ll learn something new, create a shift, find a new perspective, that you’ll feel loved and supported.
I'm a motivational spiritual teacher, a happiness coach, an energy manager, a wife and mother of three amazing kids. For as far back as I can remember, I have always felt a need, a call, a nagging feeling that I needed/wanted to help people and save the world. To motivate and cheer people on to live a bigger, a richer, a more whole-hearted happier life.
However, I didn’t always do this, I consider this to be my second career. I started out working in corporate America as a certified public accountant at a public accounting firm for 13 years. Although I enjoyed many aspects of my career, I knew that it wasn’t my passion, or my calling in life. As much as possible, I navigated my career toward working with the people side of the business and less with the numbers side of the business. I was heavily involved with recruiting and training and became a consultant for a personality and skills assessment tool called Predictive Index.
When September 11th happened I decided it was time to shift gears. Time to honor the whisper in my heart…it was actually more like a flashing neon sign. I engrossed myself in learning and growing and eventually sharing. I read and studied and practiced and shared, until one day I decided it was time to share my discoveries on a larger scale.
My approach combines ancient wisdom with modern science to create synergy of the mind, body and spirit. Synergizing my experience in the corporate world with that of energy management, mindfulness, spiritual concepts and hard-core science based evidence.
I often say, “What are you bringing to the table?” I believe that you have to bring your whole self to the table. Your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole spirit, your whole mind, your whole amazingly beautiful energetic self!
Life can be challenging and life can be messy. I know that sometimes I feel like it's a Hot Mess or that I'm a Hot Mess. Braving the Hot Mess, to me, means acknowledging the challenges and being brave enough to navigate your way through it with love, gratitude, compassion, forgiveness and your whole-heart.
Love and blessings,
