From the outside looking in, Tracy J. Edmonds' life couldn't
have been sweeter: a high-profile executive job with a Fortune 30
company at which she excelled. But on the inside, where she
discovered it really counts, her career had come at a high cost
because of a self-imposed crucible: not being her authentic self.
So she decided to embrace both her figurative and literal wild hair
-- trading her corner office for a cubicle and tackling a vision
that not only meshed with her gifts and passions but also allowed
her to live who she truly was rather than conforming a corporate
mold. She's found her life of significance in coaching other women
of color that to be the best versions of themselves, they have to
be the real versions of themselves.
