Today I’m so thrilled to start my new Tuesday Chats With… blog series. In this series, I’ll be interviewing interesting and inspiring women who are making their mark in their respective industries. I’m always curious to learn what sets them apart and keen to know what makes them tick and if they’re actually normal, human women. My thinking is, if they do things like I do things, or if they like things that I like, then perhaps I can find the same success they have. And if there are things that they do differently to me, then I need to change my habits to reach their levels of success. The first amazing woman that I am interviewing for this series is fashion designer, personal stylist & fashion writer, Tracy Gold. I contacted Tracy a few weeks ago, and long story short, I’ve photographed her, she’s helped me with my wardrobe and we’re now collaborating together (more on that in a post later this week). So I was thrilled that Tracy agreed to be interviewed, so I could share her totally magnetic personality.
