Tracy Szelest is a writer and highly creative design & marketing professional. Author of the upcoming non-fiction book, Midlife Rising, she has been guided to share her own personal story, for others to see how surrendering to the broken parts of life can and should be used as a catalyst to foster personal growth. Her own life crisis sparked the desire to understand healing on a mind, body and soul level.
A little about my book, Midlife Rising:
Do you find yourself experiencing insurmountable life challenges? Do you wonder, what did I do to deserve this? Are you concerned about how you will move forward after divorce, financial crisis, health crisis, job losses, or the loss of a relationship? Does the unknown paralyze you with fear about the future?
Sometimes we need a marker, a reminder, to gauge where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. We often get distracted by the hurts, beliefs, and emotional baggage we accumulate throughout our life. Tracy asks the question, will we stay broken in the challenges that present themselves, or will we dig deeper to understand what our soul is asking of us? What in life needs to change? How can we shift perspectives to see past our narrow view of our world?
Midlife Rising is a personal journey, a hindsight perspective of a life in crisis. Learn how, even in the depths of despair, you can utilize these experiences for growth and transformation. Tracy shares experiences of those who have transformed through life-shattering circumstances and emerged with the wisdom and purpose of these learning opportunities. Discover resources, insight and supportive advice from her spiritual journey.
This engaging perspective brings clarity on how to use transformation to serve our higher purpose. She shares how we don’t need expensive tools or exclusive retreats to find ourselves. Much of the work is in our everyday lives. Eliminating toxic thoughts and exposures, unlearning untruths, and relearning what promotes true health is an essential part of the healing process. It is not only who we are destined to become, but it is releasing what is unbecoming. Learn how our power lies in how we choose to see our world and the key to redirecting our path is to be brave enough to embrace who we are truly meant to be.
In this book you will gain:
- A heartwarming story
- Guidance on how to clean up toxic habits holding you back
- Life-changing perspectives on how you can transform your life

I have my AA in Liberal Arts, BA in Media Studies, and currently pursuing my master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology with a specialization in Spiritual Mentorship as well as Regressive Hypnosis. I am also a Reiki Master.
I am passionate about contributing to the world and making it a better place for ourselves and future generations. I believe as we do the work to awaken to our souls calling, life can provide deeper meaning and be more fulfilling.
I use my creative talents in any way possible. I feel I have a unique way of channeling my abilities into visually appealing and thought-provoking content within multiple marketing mediums. My professional career has fostered a diverse background with proficiency in many skills including
- Graphic Design
- Content Writing
- search engine marketing (SEM)
- Franchise Marketing
- Small Business Marketing
- digital marketing
- marketing strategy
- brand awareness
- inbound marketing campaigns
- project management
- proposal coordination
- event planning
- trade shows - and more
I have observed how marketing has changed over the years, and become more subconscious manipulation rather than marketing. My goal is to appeal to users through quality content rather than shallow marketing tactics.
My background covers varied business sectors including senior living, franchise marketing, home services, financial industry, retail, automotive, government bids, real estate (commercial & residential), in addition to advertising agency experience.
I am well-versed in Adobe Creative Cloud, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator as well as WordPress. Previously certified in Google Adwords & Analytics.
I have worked for and with companies such as Coca-Cola, Cox Communications, Autotrader, & Caterpillar.
As I began to focus on my calling, my interests have guided me towards healing modalities such as herbal medicine, energy healing, hypnosis, sound / frequency therapies, consciousness, and many other alternative healing therapies. I would like to combine my marketing skills to help heal the world as well as healing others. As I gain knowledge and work towards my Masters in Transpersonal Psychology, I will shift my focus to help others heal on a mind, body and soul level.
