In Crystal's class I learned to be confident. I came into the workshop very shy, scared–not sure of myself. I have grown so much since taking her class. I respect myself more, and so do others. I learned the best way to market and present myself, and grow as an artist. I fell in love with Crystal's positive energy and excitement to help artists learn the tools it takes to make it in this industry.

When I attended Crystal's class, I had lost my drive and hope for being a freelance manicurist. She showed me simple ways to stand out and how by fixing the things that were missing I would become more professional and marketable. I got so much more than I expected. Within a few months, I got an agent. Since her class, I have worked with a dozen magazines, on national ad campaigns, and I am a regular at NYFW.

Crystal helps us come to a realization of our abilities. Things may not always go my way but with the confidence that Crystal instilled in me throughout the class and the follow up conference calls, she has taught me to believe in myself. Just months after the class, I was able to achieve goals that I thought would have taken much longer. After editing of my online portfolio and bio, I was able to book more jobs, and reach out of my comfort zone.

Before taking Crystal's class, I was stagnant doing what I loved but receiving low wages and struggling. Crystal gave us real life scenarios of negotiating tactics, brought in successful graduates, and provided documents and photos that helped me hear and see exactly what I should do to gain success. She taught me how to brand myself and communicate with people effectively so I would get hired more. I'm now asking for more money and receive it. I also gained clarity on what it was I really wanted to do, and learned how to focus so I could get there. This alleviated a lot of the stress of being all over the place.

The thing that really sets Crystal apart is her straight shooter approach to getting you on the right track and sharing information that will actually change your career and not keep you spinning in circles.
When I met Crystal, I was completely stuck. I have been working with her on and off for 10 years. She helped me with the transition from corporate executive at Smashbox to freelancer to opening my own business.

I want the world to know that I've been blessed with one of the best mentors in the world!!! Crystal Wright has my entire back and she is ALWAYS there! She's taught me some of the best beauty business tactics and what to do to stay in business. As long as I live, I'll never ever forget her and how she's been there for me, how she's pushed me, how she's kept me accountable, how she's made sure that I've kept my character intact, and helped me to always be integral. I love you, Crystal!
I really want to thank Crystal because she is a REAL Coach. She told me to just keep running. To anyone going through a rough time, do what you have to do..cry it out..walk it out but then, keep running. Call your "Crystal" or call my Crystal.
