Tracy Imm’s MVP player Stats:


Tracy is a returning guest on the show from 2014. We hear what Tracy has been up to during our last conversation and we get to see where she is now on her playing field as a leadership coach, hosting retreats, podcasting, and more! The last five years have brought many changes to Tracy's life such as teaching at a college she was working for and working for a big government agency, as well as launching her podcast, "Brave Girls with Tracy Imm."


In this episode, we talk about Tracy’s personal transformation that led her to teach students how to prepare for their careers after college and give them valuable career advice. After speaking with numerous students and creating a consistent guide for students to succeed in their careers, Tracy decided to put all this content and strategy into her book, Conquer Shame and Claim Success.


Tracy shares with us how the idea of her book came into her universe and what process she used to make that journey happen. She talks about some of the changes she made to her attitude and mindset, along with her belief in and understanding of the Universal Law of Cause and Effect. Tracy talks about the power she has gained from taking the leap and investing in herself.
