About Amanda

Take Hannah Gadsby’s rawness, Kaitlyn Bristowe’s relatable humor, Gabrielle Bernstein’s spirituality, Brené Brown’s passion for self-discovery and growth, and Glennon Doyle’s bold courage, and you get Amanda McLernon.

An entrepreneur and social media agency founder, Amanda speaks about the intersection of social media, technology addiction, human kindness and empathy, and relationships in the digital and physical worlds. She’s on a mission to Keep Social Media Social and Kind by helping people cultivate their online worlds through their actions, thoughts, and words. By teaching individuals, groups, and audiences how to set healthy boundaries with social media, she also helps them live a better life IRL.

Obsessed with the digital world from a young age, Amanda got her start on social media at age 11. By age 25, it became more than just a place to connect with friends and family—it became a place to run a business as she launched McLernon & Co. While growing her social media agency, she began to spend more and more time on social media as she used it for her clients, her own business, and her personal needs. Eventually, she was clocking in over ten hours a day online as an online business owner, social activist, and a social butterfly. The result? A social media addiction which led to a personal depression – and then one day an awakening.

Amanda realized she needed help. With the help of a cognitive therapist, she began to explore and study the connection between cognitive therapy, positive psychology, habits and addiction cycles, social media, and mindfulness.

Now, Amanda is paying those lessons forward. Through her talks, she teaches others how to be mindful of their time, activity, and energy on social media – and how that impacts the bottom line in business. During her talks, Amanda also covers how she created habits that helped her confront her addictive scrolling and reduce the resulting anxiety and depression.
