Tracie Boyd - Social Media
What do you love about bookkeeping?
I am enjoying working remotely tremendously. I get the best of both worlds. It reinforces that everything (well mostly everything) I do is by choice. I’m an extreme case of working remotely since I move locations about every three months but I’m can only assume it really takes the stress out of work for all remote workers. It allows you to love what you do because you can work when you work best.
How did you get to work for Swag?
I was sent the open position through a remote Facebook group. I applied for a part-time bookkeeping position but ended up with social media management. Sheree appreciated my free lifestyle and I suppose I was a good fit. I appreciate the opportunity greatly. I am finding it a challenge and rewarding, especially since I am an American (Texan) working for an Australian company.
Tell us what you like to do in your spare time.
Always assuming you have spare time haha 🙂 Well I live on a sailboat in the Western Caribbean, between Mexico and Honduras. My husband and I spend around 90 days in the islands of these countries at a time because of visa restrictions. There is a cruising community that we have become a part of and we enjoy meeting up with friends we have made in the different ports. Our lifestyle is a bit primitive. We don’t have a car to jump in to go to the store. It takes longer to do normal tasks. Our home is small so we spend a lot of time outdoors.
In hurricane season we like to keep our home in Guatemala, up the Rio Dulce where is it safe. When there we find places to travel on land or by air to get out of the hot climate and see something we can’t by boat.
