Crystal Wright is a self-help author, educator and motivational speaker. She is known as the Empowerment Diva because she gets people unstuck––a job she finds particularly satisfying as she doles out each piece of advice with a healthy dose of tough love, expectation and accountability.
Born January 13, 1958, she grew up in Tacoma, Washington. After high school she attended more than a few colleges while trying to figure out what she was going to do with the rest of her life, when a guidance councilor at the University of Washington identified her as the perfect candidate for a summer internship at Xerox. Not the least bit interested at first, she still managed to win the appointment in field of over 50 students. That internship ended with an offer of full-time employment and she spent five years as an account executive where she says, “I learned everything I needed to know, to strike out on my own.”
In March, 1986 Crystal Agency was born, and Wright spent 24 years negotiating deals in Hollywood and New York for beauty pros who worked in print, video, film and TV. It was during this time as an agent for freelance professionals that she wrote and self-published her first book, The Hair, Makeup & Fashion Styling Career Guide. With it she suddenly became the internationally recognized expert on the subject of career building and marketing for beauty and fashion professionals and still appears regularly as a guest speaker and educator at industry trade shows and events.
In the summer of 2008 with the worsening recession, a succession of corporate bankruptcies which drove many of her longtime clients out of business, and thousands of dollars of unpaid invoices, Wright took these events as a sign that it was time to turn up the heat on her longtime passion of educating, motivating and teaching others how to create personal and professional success in their lives.
Little did she know what God had in store for her when on March 8, 2009 she was given a vision for a book and audio program that would refocus a person’s attention on identifying and maintaining 100 percent in their lives.
This new book, 30 Days at 100 Percent challenges the reader to identify areas of opportunity and suggests that by focusing on changing only 1 thing every 30 days, anyone can start to take their power back in month one, gain momentum in month two, and begin to achieve again in month 3 by eliminating the excuses that keep people enslaved to life that is half lived.
“While we can't change the past,” says Wright, “I know from experience that by taking responsibility for our choices, changing our actions, attitudes and habits, we can rise above our immediate circumstances, change course, excel and thrive 30 days at a time.”
Wright credits her grandmother with giving her the guidance, wisdom, self-confidence, and commitment to excellence to pursue her dreams. "She was the most important influence in my life," says Wright. "Her advice to me, was ‘that I should go to school so I could get an education, get good grades so that I could go to ANY college I wanted, and play sports so I would be competitive.' With those tools, she believed that I could do anything I set my mind to."
Today Wright is invited to speak, teach and consult in both the public and private sectors.
