We had the good fortune of connecting with DeeAnn Tracy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi DeeAnn, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I grew up in Flagstaff Arizona which is a very tight knit and caring community. Having a community that cares about who you are and how you are is an incredible feeling as a young person and adult. There has also been an amazing amount of support for my business which really goes a long way. People in Flagstaff are very down to earth and genuine which has had a big impact on who I am as a person and how I run my business. I love having grown up in a small town!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I have been in business for over 27 years and it has been an incredible learning opportunity. There have been hundreds of hurdles and lessons learned over the years, it is a continual personal growth process. I believe the number one skill any entrepreneur needs to have is problem solving skills and a calm head. Slow and steady wins the race.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
To start the day off right it would be coffee at Macy’s European coffee house in downtown Flagstaff. Then off to the Grand Canyon for a day hike and dinner at the El Tovar. Then back to Flagstaff for a beer with friends at the Rendezvous lounge in the Hotel Monte Vista.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I work with a business mentor who has helped me grow as a business person in so many ways. I am an avid learner and belong to many business groups. One of my mentors told me to look at how teachable I am, I always am open to learning and growing.
