Klyn Elsbury    

Best-Selling Author & CEO, Thriving with Cystic Fibrosis / Diabetes

Born with cystic fibrosis, Klyn started her career from inside hospital walls, asking the question, ""why can some people accomplish incredible feats even when it seems as if their world is falling apart?""

In 2015, her health plummeted and she started spending upwards of 6 months a year in the hospital.

And after 67 hospitalizations, finally found her answer.

She gave up her award winning recruiting career and decided to write her first book, I AM ___ The Untold Story Of Success. Using Linkedin between treatments, she got national news coverage regarding pharmaceutical pricing gauging and her book skyrocketed to becoming a bestseller, allowing her to get off of social security and build her own recruiting company.

She had it all. And yet, something was missing.

After she received the highest rating ever for a keynote at a national entrepreneurial conference, she listened to the voice in her head that said ""trust your gut."" And MK Foundation was incorporated.

She immersed herself into the field of neuroscience, personal growth, and mindset techniques on creating rapid transformation.

In 2019, just two years after getting off of social security, she hit 6 figures and through strategic partnerships in 2020 she created her first 7 figure deal.

During COVID 19 she was approached to create Sickly Confidential, an empowering blog sharing personal growth strategies for women dealing with chronic conditions, rare disease, invisible illnesses, and those suffering with undiagnosed conditions.

Speech Topics


All too often when sales teams are stuck, leadership throws new education and tactics on top of them without addressing the underlying issue. All "stuck states" come from the inability to correctly internalize an event. This is why some people view change positively, others view it as a threat. By rewiring our brains to be receptive to the paradox of potential, we can immediately untap a different level of energy, to be more productive and enjoy our lives more.

Your team doesn't need a peptalk, it needs a process. Hope is not a strategy. Leverage these teaching, rooted in neuro-associative techniques, to get your team back on track.

We are mentally programmed to give up or be upset, not necessarily because our lives are so tough but because we haven't learned the strategies and tactics to persevere when the odds are against us.

These principals, strategies and tactics explained in this incredibly emotional, heart felt presentation is something that can be applicable to anyone fighting to thrive in their business, their career, family, or even their life.
