KCAL9 TV Interview
Kelly Standing visited Los Angeles TV KCAL9 News at 2PM to discuss her book, “I’m Still Standing“.
Standing has singularly experienced more in this lifetime than most large families could attest to as a group. From a near hanging at the hands of a bully as a child to a lightning strike to catastrophic illness and a near-death trip into the “Bright Light”, award-winning motivational speaker, executive coach, and author Kelly Standing knows a thing or two about surviving some of life’s most harrowing moments.
At its heart, Kelly’s memoir is not about how often or how nearly she has died, but how she has chosen to live. Her story is inspirational, encouraging readers to find the good in even the most difficult situations.
