How Social Media Literally Saved my Life with Klyn Elsbury

Sharing is caring!

What are the benefits of social media? A lot of people will say not a whole lot. That social media is indulgent, vapid and doesn’t provide much value to society. That they have better things to do than scroll feeds and like images.

Truth is social media when used the right way can make a drastic impact in this world. For today’s guest Klyn Elsbury, it LITERALLY saved her life.

In my conversation with Klyn, you’ll learn what it’s like to live with Cystic Fibrosis, the subtle mindset shifts that can be more motivational than positivity and purpose alone, and how social media can make a big mark on this world if you use it the right way.

To me, why something matters is not the point. It's the how. I care so much about the how and so little about the why. – Klyn Elsbury on the @iamcorrielo Show Click To Tweet

Klyn Elsbury Bio:

Born with Cystic Fibrosis, Klyn Elsbury was initially told she would not live past the age of 14.
At 15, she slipped into a month-long diabetic coma and doctors believed she would have permanent brain damage.
By 22 she was living in Orlando, Florida making over 6 figures as a recruiter.
At the age of 25, she was asked to make end-of-life arrangements due to her failing health, and Klyn filed for long-term disability leave.
Today, at the age of 31, Klyn is a sought after social media marketer, best-selling author, keynote speaker, & certified neurolinguistic programming coach. Her story and daily work to thrive, rather than survive, has inspired thousands who have heard her speak and through her training programs.
Her principles have been shared via 100+ publications and even lead to a prime-time slot on US Nightly News w/ Lester Holt, in part, because she has proven that with the right training, you can radically transform your company culture, your company, and thereby your life.
