In September 2011 Tracy launched her new publishing company and online magazine, leadingpossibilities – profiling extraordinary people, places, and human experiences set against the art and words of emerging artists and inspiring, though-provoking voices. Part of the new publishing enterprise includes “The Possibility Place”, a new online community offering visitors expert advice on mastering one’s mind, body, spirit, career, family and purpose—all about helping people live their best lives, as well as helping other writers, musicians, artists, and designers find audiences for their work and products/services that inspire. The community goes live December 1, 2011 and can be found off their main website. Her weekly newsletter offers fresh, funny, honest advice you won’t find anywhere else. (Sign up here!)
