Melissa Ambrosini // How to cure your comparisonitis
Seize the Yay
I’m thrilled to be joined by my dear friend, Melissa Ambrosini, to celebrate the launch of her FOURTH and very much needed book, Comparisonitis. In a time where the minute details of everyone else’s lives are more visible than ever, this book is MUST-have guide to arming yourself against the dangers of continual social comparison and self-doubt.Melissa is one of the absolute OG leaders in self-development and wellbeing growing from a Blogspot newbie over a decade ago to multiple bestselling author, podcaster with over 16 million downloads, TEDx speaker and very soon-to-be new mama. It’s quite lovely now that enough time has passed since my move out of corporate to have been able to experience multiple chapters and stages in the lives of people I have been lucky enough to connect with since the early days and I actually interviewed Melissa for her very first book just as she was at my very first speaking gig ever.Mel has taught me so much over the years particularly around self-awareness, boundaries and continual growth and she shares so many of those lessons today. We chat everything from her fascinating earlier days as a dancer at the Moulin Rouge to the weirdest health hacks we’ve tried, the challenges of getting pregnant, and trusting the process. I hope you enjoy!BUY YOUR COPY OF COMPARISONITIS HERE+ Follow Melissa here+ Announcements on Insta at @spoonful_of_sarah+ Join our Facebook community here

Self Love, Soulmates & Finding Purpose with Melissa Ambrosini
Get Your Glow Back
On today's episode I'm joined by my old friend and the person who inspired my wellness journey, Melissa Ambrosini. Melissa is the bestselling author of Mastering Your Mean Girl, Open Wide and PurposeFULL, the host of the top-rated podcast The Melissa Ambrosini Show, a keynote speaker, content creator, and entrepreneur. On today's episode Melissa shared some really special advice about living life to it's fullest whether it's in work, relationships or with our view of self. I hope you enjoy listening!
This is one thing you need to know right now about Melissa Ambrosini: her podcast has had over 14 million downloads. What! That puts her in Oprah territory (and the US media giant is her dream guest, of course) and says everything about how beautifully she connects with women everywhere. Melissa’s message is simple and directed straight at people like me, who at times hear that inner critic saying you’re not good enough. That you’ll never find the dream man. That you’ll never be out of debt, never fall pregnant, never feel beautiful. That you’re never enough. Totally wrong, says the Australian entrepreneur and coach. I love what she stands for and teaches to clients all over the world. So I invited her to be my guest on the latest Powerful Stories podcast. If you’re someone who has as at times been devastated by that tiny sledging voice inside your head, you’ll get so much value out of what Melissa—author of the bestselling Mastering Your Mean Girl—tells me. We talk Melissa’s amazing four-step CAST process to crush your inner mean girl and master self-love, decluttering your life, what she does in the car with her husband (I admit I do it too), how to stop being a people pleaser and her verdict on “one of the most powerful phrases” you can say. “I want to encourage everyone to practise saying ‘no thank you’ and getting really good at it,” says Melissa. “When you say ‘no thank you’ to someone else, you are saying, ‘Yes’ to yourself.” Hear Melissa’s strategies on Powerful Stories, launching on Nova on Monday. Connect with Melissa Listen to The Melissa Ambrosini Show Follow @melissaambrosini on Instagram Thank you for joining me for Powerful Stories—I love what these fabulous women are sharing. If this resonated with you and you’re ready to step into your own power even more, I invite you to join me for my exclusive Business Attraction program in February 2021.
