Over the last decade, people have seen social media grow rapidly. According to the January 2019, We Are Social report, 3.484 billion people actively use social media, roughly estimating 45% of the entire world’s population. As such, influencers start to build their reach on different social media sites. Influencers are people who made a reputation based on their specific expertise or area of knowledge. They generate large followings of people, so brands love to work closely with these influencers, such as Chad Ehlers.
Chad Ehlers is an American who has recently shelved his medical career to become a full-time social media influencer. Chad has become one of TikTok’s most popular creators. He is the founder of Chad Change, which consists of multiple groups of influencers who work daily to spread love and positivity throughout social media platforms.
This charming man has an incredible style of leadership, which is apparent when he leads his group. He loves to dance, and he uses this hobby to help others gain confidence. He has already touched so many lives with his loyalty to the Chad Change, his talents, genuine charm, and his golden smile that attracts many followers.
Chad has used his tragedy and life story to create a space for victory. Through overcoming the suicide of his young spouse, raising a teenage daughter on his own, to now being the father of a toddler who has leukemia, Chad knows firsthand what it’s like to overcome difficulties and still emerge triumphant in the end.
Because of what Chad has gone through at such a young age, he has chosen to use his pain and turn it into a meaningful purpose by creating the ChadChange Movement. The ChadChange Movement is a safe space for others to find total healing, robust support systems, and fueling inspiration. This secure online support group consists of over 300 members worldwide. Every one of the members receives regular inspiration and motivation to help with their daily struggles and needs. Many have said how the ChadChange movement has supported them through their most difficult and trying times. Some members credit this group for giving them a newfound purpose to continue living their lives.
What separates this movement from the rest is that they actively support different charities or families that they find through social media every month. ChadChange Movement raises funds through live programs on Chad’s social media accounts. Chad usually invites his audience to dance in zoom for free, to laugh and smile and forget about the stress of the day. The movement gives without expecting anything in return, as long as they can make other people smile.
Chad has encountered trials and tribulations, and he is not a stranger to difficult life situations. However, it did not stop him from living his life to the fullest. He turned his painful trials into a success story and shared it with the rest of the world. For him, it is imperative to give back and spread light and love.
