About Tracy Lawrence
Tracy is an entrepreneur, a coach to other entrepreneurs and executives, and a certified psychedelic integration coach with expertise in somatic practices and inner parts work. Through private, co-founder, and group coaching, Tracy supports leaders’ efforts to maintain their mental health as they scale their companies to help the world.
Before becoming a coach, Tracy co-founded and was CEO of Chewse, a San Francisco-based venture-backed technology company. Over a decade, she raised $40M from top-tier venture capitalists, grew the company to 300 employees in 5 markets, and successfully sold the company in 2020. She was also included in Forbes 30 Under 30 and is a Young Presidents Organization (YPO) member.
Her journey as a first-time founder was challenging, marked by frequent fundraising rejections, layoffs, and personal struggles with depression, burnout, and imposter syndrome. These experiences taught her the importance of setting boundaries, fostering community, and prioritizing health while building your company or career.
After selling her company, Tracy took a six-month sabbatical for reflection and recovery, utilizing psychedelic integration and somatic therapy to heal from the rigors of founding a company. Her new goal is to impart these lessons to other entrepreneurs, ensuring they have the support and guidance she wished she had.
