In this episode I interview Tracie O’Keefe, clinical hypnotherapist, naturopath and wealth builder in Sydney, Australia. And full disclosure, she also happens to be my wife!
Over four and half decades she has started, owned and run several business in many industries in different parts of the world.
While at college at 15 in the UK, studying the beauty business, Tracie worked three part-time jobs and started her first business which provided home hairdressing services. She went on to be a partner in a chain of health clubs in her teenage years with a champion weight lifter and national weight loss competition winner.
She’s owned her own dance company, was co-owner of an employment agency and ran and owned a Rolls Royce and Bentley dealership that shipped collectors’ models to the US.
She’s sold European fine water colours and oil paintings into the US auction houses in New Orleans, Florida and New York and founded one of England’s first organic hotels and restaurants.
For more than 20 years, Tracie has helped thousands of people to empower themselves, attain emotional wellbeing and achieve their goals through her clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy clinics in London and Sydney, Australia as well her suite of online, downloadable self-help programs.
As well as being an experienced hypnotherapist who also trains other hypnotherapists through live and digital masterclasses, she’s also a qualified and registered naturopath and medical nutritionist and is the owner and clinical director of the Australian Health & Education Centre in central Sydney which operates on plant-based principles.
She’s the author of several books on topics including sex, gender and sexuality diversity; hypnosis; and overcoming trauma and crisis.
Tracie is consulted by and coaches many of Australia’s top CEOs and small business owners to help them maximise their full potential, helping them start and run their businesses and develop a money mindset to build their wealth.
In this interview she discusses:
• A different way of looking at selling that those with an activist background will particularly like
• How to handle negative media coverage (which she’s experienced)
• A simple, fast and effective strategy to cultivate resilience and protect yourself from criticism
• Why you need to invest in yourself as well as your business
• The one thing every vegan business owner must do constantly to ensure their business is successful
• How to balance the demands of relationships and family with running your business
• And much more
