If you’ve ever thought what I need in my life right now is a talking star, well, my friend, you’re in luck. Because our latest episode of the Sparkle and Thrive Podcast is a sweet ride through a world where anything is possible; where stars talk (ok, so the star is a puppet voiced by our fab founder Joy Foster – it’s hilarious FYI), lives are transformed, and we all finally get our head around Reels (no, not the Scottish dance, Instagram’s shiny new feature 🙌).
Here’s why you need to tune in
For the past seven years, Tracy Davenport has been busy raising her kids while also nursing her father-in-law through illness before turning her attention to caring for a mother-in-law with Alzheimer’s. So when she was faced with the prospect of finally having the time to do something for herself, she wanted to make it count. And guess who should pop up on Tracy’s Facebook feed? Yep, Joy and her lovely, smiling face.
Tracy completed the TechPixies programme a little over a year ago and hers is a story of transformation that will inspire you. She’s now an Insta queen with a grid that rocks a fun ’80s vibe full of tips, tricks and funnies that’ll have you thinking ‘I must dig out my pixie boots and big gold hoop earrings’ as you marvel at how easy Tracy makes everything look.
This is a story of transformation and a mighty one at that. But because Tracy is a generous TechPixie at heart, she’s also dropped in some nuggets that you won’t want to miss. There are tips for the camera-shy (particularly useful for anyone yet to find their inner Kim KW), and (yes, you wanted it so we’re doing it), there is a brilliant lowdown on those nifty little Reels for anyone still reeling (sorry!) at Insta’s latest feature drop. Never let it be said that we don’t deliver on our promises. Ask and you shall receive.
