“Live without fear! Face your fears and see them as an OPPORTUNITY for strength and growth. You’ll see, once you face them, they disappear”.—Tracey Edmonds
It’s no wonder we chose to acknowledge Tracey Edmonds as our Mogul Crush. She has overcome fears that would have halted her growth as an independent entrepreneur but she has persevered through them all and is now a prominent figure in-front and behind the camera.

She also serves on the Board of Trustees for the American Film Institute (AFI); and she serves as a Global Ambassador for CARE.
A Stanford University graduate, Edmonds holds her own weight and is a force to be reckoned with in this industry. She has won numerous awards for her contributions to the entertainment industry. In an interview with Ebony Magazine, Tracey was quoted saying, “I’m just very blessed that I’ve had a very cool career and I’ve been able to produce quite a few TV shows and movies. I had a management company. I had a record label. I keep challenging myself on the career front to expand my horizons, doing what I love to do”.

She is proof that with perseverance and using the gifts, talents, and opportunities placed before us as a stepping stone into our greatness, that we can accomplish anything.
