About Me

My name is Tracey Lamphere. I started Real Word Agency in 2015 as part of a my master’s thesis in Integrated Marketing Communications. I’ve written thousands of articles, chased leads, met deadlines, schmoozed as a community newspaper reporter. During this phase of my journey, I learned that I love telling stories. I was good at listening to people and interpreting what they said and didn’t say. After my husband and I started our family, I landed a quiet state government job in Austin, TX.

It was my introduction to marketing communications. I loved it more than reporting. I could persuade, be a little more creative and it was fun. But then my husband and I added twin

daughters (a total surprise) to our family. We were a family of five living on one income. It was time to side hustle. I had put off going back to school for three years. It was time to take a chance.

I had three kids a full-time job still writing for the government . Adding school to the mix was difficult but I just took it one course at a time. Real Word Agency is more than a marketing agency. It’s your dream builder. My purpose is to help you tell your story.
