Young urban professional

From the April 2005 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Think spring break, senior year of college, and you don't normally imagine the genesis of an internationally recognized think tank. Then again, meet , founder and CEO of WorldBlu, Inc., a Washington-DC-based consulting studio pioneering the field of organizational democracy, and the title "Chief Executive Officer" doesn't necessarily spring to mind, either.

"This whole journey—from incorporating WorldBlu first as a 501 (c)3 nonprofit foundation when I was a senior in college to eventually launching WorldBlu, Inc. as a forprofit consulting studio in 2003—has really been a huge lesson in overcoming limitations," Traci says. "When you're young and you have big ideas, you're tempted to think, 'Am I crazy? Who am I to do this?' And those questions can be paralyzing." Traci spoke with the Journal's about what enabled her to get past the second-guessing—and set out on the fast track to success.

I imagine that starting a company—no matter how old you are when you do it—must be an exciting, but daunting, process. Tell me about your experience with WorldBlu.
