About Tracey Hall
Tracey has been in the Direct Selling, Network Marketing industry for 30 years. She started out very shy at the age of 19 with her journey. Not that she knew she had a business! This was her first experience in the industry.
She was working full-time in the insurance industry and had a little direct selling gig on the side.
Little did she know, not just her business life but, in addition, her personal life would also be impacted. She loves working with amazing, strong and caring women who set goals and achieved them.
Seeing her mother in action
At this time she was first introduced to skincare and still uses direct selling, network marketing products. She is passionate about supporting the industry for her skincare, makeup, home and more.
Working as a babysitter and being the ironing chick, she knew how to work for some income when she was just 11. This helped with her confidence, as she was looking after other people’s children in their home.
When her mother was sick with stomach cancer in her 30’s. Tracey at the age of 13, did her schooling, looked after her siblings, worked her mother’s cleaning business after school and then went home and cooked dinner.
Doing the housework, her homework and more has set Tracey up to never afraid of hard work. She was working full-time over the school holidays at 15 to pay for her education, so she could stay at school. Working at McDonald’s she learnt the best customer service training, she also learned how to count waste.
Tracey used the money she saved to pay for her books, Year 11 and Year 12 fees and more. She was studying, working part-time at McDonalds and was then kicked out of home at 16 and in her last year of high school, not knowing what to do she stayed and completed Year 12.
She also had the responsibilities of keeping a home as well as living with her boyfriend at the time.
The Shy Girl
Direct Selling entered her life and it changed so many things, what you ask?
Good question, Tracey was the shy one that would sit at the back of the room watching others go up and receive things, get the recognition etc. She loved supporting others and seeing them achieve.
The first time she got up and received her first ribbon (yes like you would get at Athletics), this is still imprinted in her mind of the clapping for her and recognition of her doing something good.
She had always been told she wasn’t wanted by her mother, that she should have adopted her out.
Seeing the Bigger Picture
In 1990 only a few months after joining Mary Kay, Tracey flew from Perth to Melbourne to see the ‘bigger’ picture of her company.
That year one of the people who won Queen of Sales was in her unit, it was so great to be able to watch that moment. To see that this woman who was just like everyone else achieve made me think anything was possible.
Tracey came back to Perth and her marriage broke down at 22, she married the boy she met at 15. She stopped doing her direct selling biz for a short time to re-focus on her emotional well-being and her full-time job.
She knew she had to leave, she wasn’t happy and because of her new found confidence she did. The journey wasn’t without its challenges.
The October of that year Tracey had a very serious car accident and she contemplated going back to her ex-husband but realised that would be fair to her or him. For a few moments she was going to go back but knew it would only be for a short time as they just weren’t compatible.
Staying in Perth for a few years and then she decided it was time and moved across the country.
Moving onward and upward
Moved in 1994 to Melbourne because he father had fallen from an 8ft scaffold broke his back and she wanted to be closer to extended family.
Tracey found a local in person meeting which met weekly. She was welcomed with open arms, she learnt so much about customers, customer service and team. She knew she wanted more from her direct selling business than she ever had before. Her goals were bigger this time around.
Starting again with strangers
Her step-mother told her she wouldn’t hold a party for her so she had to start with strangers. This was way before mobile phones, internet and social media.
YES old school pounding the pavement. Cold calling, meeting people out etc. Asking people and back then Mary Kay had a little pink thing called a ‘warm fuzzy’ which we used to sell to raise money for charity.
She has been with a few different companies over the years with big teams, hundreds of customers and such confidence in all aspects of her life. The personal development from being in the industry is priceless and continues to this day.
Tracey has won trips and went to Dallas in 2000 for 10 days with her company, she got to see where the company was created and how something that started in 1963 was worldwide.
Trying something new
Using her skincare knowledge to align herself with another company from 2012 to 2016 which was in pre-launch of a Network Marketing company, so she knows what it is like to be in a new company and one that is established. It was hard work not having brand recognition but now the company Jeunesse is a household name in over 100 countries.
Launching her own company
In 2016 and still loving the industry, she launched Success in Ethical Direct Sales to mentor women in the industry. This started out as 1:1 mentoring and the transformations from her clients was impressive.
Her joint partnership with another industry representative to start Excelling in Direct Sales which was to take it to the next level with online mentoring and online programs. This lasted just under two years as their vision for the business wasn’t the same.
Her focus now
It is her focus now to provide women in the industry a safe place to learn back to basics skills that will set them up to go from hobby to business mindset. She wants to use her knowledge to impact their lives in a positive way, being ethical in her approach to mentoring and training.
