About Amanda

Amanda McLernon is an entrepreneur obsessed with people and social media.

She aches to keep social media social, which means keeping social media kind and creative and a place where you WANT to spend time with your friends and community online. It also means setting healthy boundaries with social media in order to live your best life IRL.

Obsessed with the digital world from a young age, Amanda got her start on social media at age 11 and it quickly became more than just a place to connect with friends and family – it became a place to run a business.

At age 25 Amanda dove headfirst into growing a social media agency – and found herself spending over eight hours a day on social media as she used it for her clients, her own business, and her personal needs.

Due to the overwhelming need to be online as an online business owner, social activist, and a social butterfly, she accidentally scrolled right into a social media addiction which helped lead to a personal depression that lasted from 2016-2019.

Amanda realized she needed help, and after a few months of traditional cognitive therapy, she took her therapist’s advice and taught herself to be a therapist for herself. Amanda has spent the last four years self-studying the connection between cognitive therapy, positive psychology, habits and addiction cycles, social media, and mindfulness. Hear the whole story here!

Now Amanda coaches others on how to be mindful with their time, activity and energy on social media and teaches others how to develop the habit cycles that helped her stop the addictive scrolling behavior and cure her anxiety and depression.*

* The addictive behavior, anxiety and depressive thoughts are not something that will ever be gone completely for Amanda and many others,  but through her work she’s learned how to separate her thoughts from her conscious self and build habits to choose better. 

Amanda is excited to be growing her experience as a motivational speaker and is available to speak to your organization either IRL or digitally.

(Amanda has been public speaking through live social platforms and Zoom before CoVid-19 made it popular!)

Known for boldly speaking vulnerably, Amanda has a prepared a Keynote on “Setting Boundaries with Social Media” and feels comfortable creating a custom keynote for your organization.
