Tonight! Join me in conversation with Liv Chapman & Katie DePaola
For our fourth night in our series on White Womxnhood, Identity & Race, we are joined by the Co-Founders of Inner Glow Circle.
Liv Chapman is the Co-Founder and COO of Inner Glow Circle (IGC), an online training company designed to accelerate women coaches and entrepreneurs — and one of the fastest-growing businesses in the coaching space. Liv joined IGC in 2015, after a chance meeting with founder Katie DePaola a few years prior.
As a Washington, DC public school teacher overwhelmed with her students’ needs, her own student loans and the constraints of public education, Liv went searching for a deeper life purpose. She realized she had run her life on what other people said she “should” do, but had completely ignored what she wanted to do.
In the pursuit of purpose and profit, Liv found coaching. Within a few years of starting her private practice, Liv was asked to bring her education and training background to Inner Glow Circle.
Today, Liv runs the training and operations arm of the business — of course, with healthy profit margins and plenty of room for fun. She teaches women how to shift their “shoulds” into true desire and use their life challenges as a platform to make money and do work they love. She trains thousands of women across the world on how to find their purpose, live it and actually get paid.
Right after she launched her company, Inner Glow Circle, Katie DePaola’s brother died from an accidental overdose. A few months later, Katie cut ties with her business partner and then-fiancé, all the while, fighting a battle with Lyme Disease.
Between meetings, she cried, punched her pillow and made deals with God. She knew giving up wasn’t an option. Even on the hardest days, she still had somewhere to be. She had created something in her life that was worth showing up for.
She was grieving the loss of her brother. The Lyme was taking its toll on her body. She had to learn how to ask for help, delegate and hire the right people fast. “I worked hard to save my business, but in the end, my business saved me,” Katie says. Her business was the giant gift she gave herself but hadn’t even realized.
Along the way, Katie turned her greatest challenges into her greatest opportunities. She’s rebranding resilience, showing women how to use their challenges as a platform to better the lives of others and build profitable businesses. With her growing team, she trains thousands of women across the world on how to find their purpose, live it and get paid.
In her forthcoming book, At Least You Look Good, Katie shares her most vulnerable (and often funny) reflections on how to deal with the hardest parts of life — and her best advice for women who want to “glow through what they go through.” Katie is now Lyme free.
Join us at 7 pm CST/8 pm EST for our conversation on Facebook Live.
The Racial Healing and Wellness Coaching Program is a part of the Racial Healing & Wellness Initiative and was developed by Rozella Haydée White and Nicole Newman. This program is for White womxn* committed to the journey towards racial healing and wellness. Together, they have created a bold, interdisciplinary coaching program that pulls from new and established resources to guide participants on a journey of radical racial healing and wellness.
*We specifically use the word Womxn, which is a term coined to create distance from male-centric language and to be inclusive of all humans who identify as women. This space is welcoming of all who live an embodied Womxn’s existence.
