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.
