how it started

in march of 2020, elevari co-founders amanda + angelina came to a scary realization: this global pandemic was turning the entire world upside down. the coronavirus magnified just how many people are struggling with “rock bottom” situations. the loss of a loved one, a career, a business, a home, a relationship. millions of us were feeling helpless, stuck, scared + completely overwhelmed. amanda + angelina asked themselves “how do we level up after a setback?”.

they soon recognized the need for a starting point. proof that humans are resilient. affirmation that we can overcome anything. evidence that we are born with the ability to bounce back from even the worst possible situations. this idea transformed from a spark into something tangible. a resource to help people feel connected, empowered + inspired. the elevari comeback stories (CBS) series was created to help you help yourself.

why it works

elevari’s CBS series was designed with you in mind. every single interview is filmed with the intention to inspire at least one person watching it. let these amazing stories fill you with the motivation + confidence to make your own comeback.

at elevari we truly believe that evidence becomes the loudest voice. our CBS series provides more than just a pretty highlight reel. each story dives deep into the struggle, the ups and downs, the challenges, the failures, every bump in the road, and hard lesson learned.  these are true stories of real people who have fought to climb back from rock bottom + start all over again.

when creating the CBS series, amanda + angelina drew inspiration from “the 4 minute mile” example. back in the day experts claimed it was scientifically impossible to run a mile in under 4 minutes. until a man by the name of roger bannister (who tried + failed many times) finally broke that barrier running a mile in 3:59.4.

now here’s the crazy part: roger trained relentlessly, faced setback after setback, until finally achieving his goal and making history. then just 46 days later roger’s rival broke that record! the following year three more runners did too, and today over a thousand runners have broke the 4 minute barrier. which proves that mindset is the secret ingredient. once you stop believing something is impossible, it becomes possible.

wherever you are on your journey, there’s a comeback story that can strengthen and inspire you. it’s always comeback season!
