Who is Tracey Bartlett
Who is Tracey Bartlett?
I'm Tracey, a long-legged vino lover, with a passion for anything walking, wellbeing, nature, and writing. I live in the wonderful village of Almanzora, with my hard-working hubby, and adorable pooch. My life hasn't always been sun sangria and smiles. I used to have a very different life. Life used to be very difficult; severe eczema; school bullying; assault; abusive marriage; workplace sexual harassment, but that's just made me more resilient and stronger. You're given opportunities in life to learn some valuable lessons, and I choose to do just that. And as result I am happy and finally found true love, and inner peace.

I have always loved writing. I began with mini stories at school, my English teacher was always telling me to “slow down!” when scribing, as my pen in hand couldn't keep up with the words that were flooding out onto the page. I decided to use my love of writing to update this website, in the hope it would provide some useful information for others.
Back in the UK I ran my own business (Business Helpers) providing assistance to busy business owners, offering VA, on-site support, blogging and social media management and training services. As a result, some of my clients have became good friends, and we've kept in touch despite the business closing due to our move to Spain. They have even come to stay! I still offer some of these services via my husbands business, Global Prospect Limited.
I have helped many charities. I get great satisfaction from it. As Anne Frank said, "No one has become poor from giving" I've enjoyed raising awareness and raising funds for worthy causes through action rather than putting money in a tin. I also use those opportunities to challenge myself, here are some of the things I have done:
I walk everywhere. No matter where I live. So, I organise a walking group to share that passion. Here in Spain, I am blessed with so many beautiful areas to hike in. Walking is my way of meditating and de-stressing. I just love being in the open space and listening to the sounds of nature.
I am blessed, waking up in Spain each day.
