About Keri Murphy 2017-08-21T05:47:33+00:00


The CEO and founder of Inspired Living, Keri Murphy is committed to empowering people all over the world to “Dream it. Live it. BE it!” An international speaker, media expert and business mentor, she honed her expertise in the entrepreneurial field for over 20 years, helping others to create—and succeed at—a business they love. Murphy is a television veteran with appearances on MTV, E!, FOX and NBC just to name a few. Her Inspired Living TV web series helps people bridge the gap between having a dream and making it their reality.



Growing up in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon, in a close-knit Italian family, Murphy always knew she had an affinity for the entertainment industry. Attending modeling and acting school and represented by the agency ABC Kids, she felt at ease commanding audiences from stage and on camera.

Over time, she discovered she was a natural at finding and developing talent in others. By 27, she was building one of most respected agencies in the Northwest—The Murphy Talent Group. She challenged the status quo by still appearing on air.

By 2008, Murphy was appearing as a new reality host on The Golf Channel, and was a “MADE” coach on the popular MTV show. Meanwhile, the Murphy Talent Group had grown over 400%. But fate had something else in store for her. The recession hit, and she closed the agency. Heartbroken at the loss, she took away the valuable lesson of surrounding herself with mentors—a lesson she would eventually use to launch her most successful venture yet.

Murphy began a new chapter in her life by moving to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming the next Mary Hart. Hosting gigs on E! and red carpet premieres soon followed. Still auditioning for roles, she had a “light bulb” moment while cooling her heels for three hours in an audition waiting room. Instead of waiting for opportunity, Murphy realized she was primed to create it—for herself and for others.

Soon after, Inspired Living and iLTV were born. After booking her first celebrity interview with actor and long-time golf fan Kevin Sorbo, Murphy has since interviewed many celebrities and successful entrepreneurs on their inspiring journey to success.

As a trainer with the UK-based Academy of Wealth and Achievement, Murphy jumped at the chance to travel the world, teaching and influencing others. That experience allowed her to create her own training programs like Igniting your IT Factor, which draws people out of their comfort zone and helps them do what they love.


Murphy makes it a priority to give back, particularly to other young women discovering their own hopes and dreams. She is a regular supporter of the “Unstoppable” foundation (a non-profit organization that brings education and sustainability to developing nations). She makes time to serve on the advisory board of the Women Network, which gives women a voice and platform to share their messages. And she was chosen to be a mentor for the Richard Branson Centre of Entrepreneurs, an organization of the most passionate and socially minded entrepreneurs in the world.

When not inspiring and empowering others, you’ll find her spending time with friends and family, playing the piano, or relaxing seaside—all while enjoying her time as a new mom.
