Victoria (VP) WrightTrainer
About four months prior to getting into IGC Coach Training, VP and her family were homeless just three months after the birth of her second child. She was at the point of being fed-up with her life and her work, so VP hired a business coach who could assist in helping VP figure out what her own business could be (even though VP had years of experience running and helping other people build businesses for themselves). Turns out, that business was not only as a Life Coach and creative business mentor, but also included using her degree in Comparative Ethnic Studies from Washington State University to educate folks on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. VP was able to blend all of these things into a successful coaching, speaking, and education business to the point where she scaled up to six figures fairly quickly! VP also has a Certificate in Global Leadership from Washington State University, is a Certified Life Coach through Inner Glow Circle and has been featured in and by Yahoo Finance, NPR, MSNBC, Boss Babe, Girlboss, Vox, and Voyage Houston.
