My name is Tracey Tee.
I’m a gal who likes to work for herself. I come from a long line of family members who did – and still do – their own thing. It’s kind of in my blood.
I founded three successful ecommerce sites specializing in gifts, home accessories, fashion accessories and eco-friendly items. But these sites weren’t just about selling product – my premise has always be to integrate good product into a good life. To give gifts that matter, gifts that say something (an effort I work on continuously). Products/items/things have a way of celebrating life and each other…and that’s ok in my book.
After nearly a decade of owning/operating ecommerce sites, I transitioned from running business to helping others run their businesses. The grindstone worked for me for many years, but the model didn’t fit the life I wanted/needed in the beginning of 2011. My new “role” as a “consultant” is ever-evolving and changing, but one premise remains the same: I believe that frankness, honesty and transparency are the only ways to develop and grow a business. As a consultant, I tend to lay it on the line for you.
I’m also a writer passionate about good design, good business, product discovery, humor in all things and healthy-happy living.
I also have two dogs who drive me crazy, but I love them.
And most importantly I am married, just had a beautiful baby girl (Dec 2010), live in Denver and tend to eat and drink more wine than I should.
Husband/Daughter // Big Sky // Chefs: a profession that continually combines excruciating hard work with creativity, tradition, science and economics // Big Mountains // English Professors & Teachers: the last of what I fear to be a dying culture committed to the beauty, the laws, of language // My Parents: they raised me under the premise that I could do anything I wanted in life // ‘The Greatest Generation’: anyone who lived through WWII and The Great Depression, especially my Grandfather & Grandmother. My grandmother ate nothing but oranges for one week while living in an old TB hospital with other wives once, because that’s all there was to eat. My Grandfather dropped bombs from planes in the war, was a successful business owner in Denver, is a great golfer, and at 90 he plays Angry Birds on his iPad // Big Fields // J. Paul Getty // Cool Hand Luke // Libraries. A place of infinite possibility. // Music in all its forms // People who can draw/paint (because I can’t) // People who can sing (because I can’t) // People who are athletic (because my heart wants to be athletic, but my body does not agree) // ROYGBIV // Really, really great food, in all its many forms …
