Recently I had the pleasure of catching up with Melissa Ambrosini and hearing all about her best-selling book Mastering Your Mean Girl. I recorded an audio of our conversation for your listening enjoyment. Grab a cuppa and make yourself comfy!
As well as being a best-selling author, Melissa is also an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and self-love teacher. In her signature straight-talking style, Melissa teaches women how to master their inner Mean Girl, smash through limiting beliefs, and ditch the self-doubt so that they can start truly living the life of their dreams.
Named a ‘self-help guru’ by Elle Magazine, she is known for her inspirational live events, books, booming online community, her weekly Goddess Groups, game-changing online programs such as the MA Academy Business Bootcamp, her soulful guided meditations and empowering keynote talks.
Her mission is to inspire women across the globe to create a heart-centred life one that’s wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy and bursting with love.
Mastering Your Mean Girl has a conversational tone and I felt as though I was chatting to Melissa directly. It has a warm, open and friendly vibe, which is lovely. Extremely visually appealing, it’s been presented in a clear way with numerous exercises, encouraging the reader to take small steps immediately.
One of the main themes of the book is about making the decision to choose love over fear. This is one of those concepts that can sound obvious. As we know this can be MUCH harder that it seems and self-sabotage can also play a role. Melissa shares her method for addressing it.
We also discussed the glorification of busy and how women in particular, can be so conditioned to this, based on how they were brought up. Most of us are conditioned to put others first. How do we start to unravel ourselves from these deeply embedded patterns? Passion and purpose were another topic we chatted about and steps that we can take to make progress when we are feeling stuck.
Whilst I was reading the book I had a flashback to a conversation that Melissa and I had a few years ago. She talked about how she was going to write a book and how it was on her vision board. I felt tingles just thinking about it as I sat there with the finished product in my hands! How inspiring is that!
So many people dream of writing a book and so I asked Melissa about her process as I thought you would love to hear what her process was for writing that (often elusive) first draft. I would love to hear your thoughts below and if you have read the book. What was your favourite part?
