About Klyn Elsbury

"The more obstacles put in her life, the more determined she seems to be in overcoming...If you're looking for an extremely inspiring, well-spoken, thought-provoking, game-changer, then I suggest booking Klyn ASAP!"


Born with cystic fibrosis, Klyn started her career within hospital walls, asking, "Why can some people accomplish incredible feats even when their world is seemingly falling apart?" In answering this question, Klyn leveraged the information she uncovered, applying it to her recruiting career and winning multiple awards until, in 2015, her health declined.
At this point, while spending 6+ months a year in the hospital, she wrote her first book, I AM__: The Untold Story Of Success. For this, Klyn earned national news coverage, sharing insight into pharmaceutical price gouging, becoming a bestselling author, and regaining the financial freedom to build her own recruiting company in 2017.

In the years that followed, Klyn went on to found the MK Foundation, specializing in sales consulting and training for organizations.

Then, in 2019, just two years after getting off of social security, Klyn hit 6 figures and created her first 7-figure deal, proving that it doesn’t matter what your genetic code says. “Champions are built, not born”.

Today, Klyn is an award-winning speaker, author, and coach. In addition to the aforementioned courses, her podcast (The Truth About Sales), corporate training, and keynotes motivate and teach high-performance tactics for an estimated 200,000 minds a month.


She regularly consults with top-tier organizations, creating custom sales playbooks and systems to improve closing ratios, raise customer satisfaction, and create lasting motivation for employees.

Klyn was selected as a finalist for Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of The Year in 2019 but decided to stop the interview process when she was hospitalized her 67th time battling the genetic disease, cystic fibrosis.
In 2021, Klyn became a 2x international best selling author with the release of UNSTUCK YOURSELF, a motivational sales playbook designed to create top producers in your sales organization in under 30 days.

You can also find her camping, reading, inhaling tacos or being obsessive about her fiance and 3 pound puppy, Chanel.
