Katie wrote the initial plans for Inner Glow Circle on a tablecloth at a restaurant. The following week, she interviewed 20 graduates of coach training programs. She asked what they loved about their training programs and what they didn’t love.
She decided IGC would have the best of everything — and close the gaps in the industry.
The next thing Katie needed was a team. Most self-help brands were led by solopreneurs. But Katie didn’t just want to build a brand. She wanted to build a legacy. Luckily, she didn’t have to look any further than her own coaching clients.
Liv Chapman had been Katie’s client for years. They had the same passion for supporting women, and they spoke the same language. Liv was a teacher, trained coach and could write courses in her sleep.
With a M.S. in Education, Educational Leadership and Administration, Liv felt she wasn’t using her full degree (or her full potential).
She was busy creating an after-school program for teen girls when Katie asked, “how about creating an online school for women?”
And just like that, Inner Glow Circle was born.
Joining the IGC team was a bold move for Liv. She had just left her teaching job and was still learning to “glow her own way.”
But as Liv realized, life isn’t about what you should do.
Life is about what you want to do.
