About TracieD

Hi,   My name is Tracie but a lot of people call me TracieD!  I am a mum to four kids (3 boys and 1 girl) ranging in age from 19 to 6 and have been married to Tony for 14 years!

TracieD in Salt Lake City TracieD

I am an entrepreneur by heart and I have also had a love of all things homey especially cooking, and always feel like I am my happiest when I am feeding people.  I have (lets call it) a passion for reading blogs.  It has gotten to the point that there are really not enough hours in the day to read everything I would love to as well as try out new projects and get a bit of work done in between.

After being diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in December 2011 I have become increasingly interested in anything health.  I started taking some supplements that a friend introduced me to and within 4 days I noticed a massive difference in how I felt.  I also dropped 4 kilos.  My weight is a work in progress and I am really focusing on my “health” and healing myself from the inside out.  The added benefit of concentrating on my health has been releasing the fat!  I could ramble on about how amazing these products are for ever but if you just want to check them out for yourself then check out this site Isagenix Australia (it is an American company but we are lucky enough to have an Australian head office in Sydney).  You can create an account for yourself and get a massive discount or you can purchase them from me at a retail rate.  Honestly it is only $25 to create your own account I feel it is much better for the pocket when you have your own account.

Before all of this, my husband and I used to own a huge indoor play centre in Geelong Victoria Australia called RunMRagged.  We created it from a tiny seed of an idea in our lounge room at home.  It was Geelong’s biggest and best and I am really proud of what we created.

It is because of RunMRagged that I was thrown into Marketing!  I actually fell in love with my customers and communicating with them.

It was really fun to create marketing campaigns that would bring our customers in again and again and again.  Over the 7 years of owning and running that business I tested and measure many campaigns and marketing strategies, and studied and learned what works and what doesn’t work.

I use a really cool online system to SendOutCards and have a great time sending them.  SendOutCards is a really cool way of creating real greeting cards online, using your own pictures and handwriting font.  The company then prints your card and addresses your envelope and then pops a stamp on just before sending it off to the post office to arrive in your recipients letter box a couple of days later.  It was because of RunMRagged that I was introduced to SOC and I’m so glad I was.

You are more than welcome to click on the link and send a couple of free greeting cards to someone you care about for free!  Dont you just love FREE?  Its one of my favourite words.

Anyhoo, this blog here is more about my life after Cancer and the things I am doing and using to get healthy. I also enjoy sharing my cooking and recipes with you.  Feel free to pop your head in here and say hello.  I’d love to hear from you!

    Hi Tracie, Found your site today and am very interested in what you’re doing – the Gabriel Method, Isagenix, Send Out Cards. I’ve been looking into both Gabriel Method & Isagenix lately for myself, and would love to hear how you’re doing with both. Hope all is well with you and you’re finding and enjoying abundant health now. : )

      Hi Sandy, My apologies for not replying to you sooner. We’ve had school holidays here and I have been crazy busy with the kids without a moment to get on my computer to check my blog!! Thanks so much for your message and yes I’m doing really well. I am using the Gabriel Method along with Isagenix. I am so passionate about Isagenix and it works in so well with Jon’s methods and teachings. I am steadily losing weight but have not weighed myself. I have decided to never diet again which is a very freeing feeling. I’d love to chat with you anytime about both. My skype id is tracie.dickson, feel free to call me whenever you like. I hope you are having an amazing day, Trace xo
