5 Quickfire Questions
What’s the best life / business advice you have received?
Tracey – [Don’t] be too hard on yourself & don’t be afraid to ask for help. I would always put huge pressure on myself & would rarely ask for help….I have not mastered this [completely myself] however, this advice has certainly helped to lighten the load. Always accept the support & advice of others
What’s the best life / business advice you have given?
Tracey – wow you know this will be a difficult one for me to answer & I feel you would need to ask those I provide the advice to 😊 However, the best advice I feel I provide is based on the individual I am speaking with knowing at the end of the conversation they are motivated, smiling & inspired, ready to continue along their journey, working through what challenge they may be facing. Love to make people happy, smile & laugh!
What’s the most common but fixable mistake businesses make?
Tracey – The most common trait I see with many small business owners is trying to take on too many things all at once. Accepting support from others, to help with prioritisation of their goals to achieve their strategic plans, is of high importance to bringing the focus on the steps needed to achieve these goals efficiently.
Dogs or cats or fish?
Tracey – Definitely dogs for me & my family 😊
Shoutout to someone influential on your success?
Tracey – I am very lucky that I have had many people who have supported me over the years, however, a massive thank you goes to my daughter Sam who over the past 18 months has helped me to grow BTS Accounting to where is is now…..certainly could not have achieved what I have without her!
