Today we’re joined by the amazing best-selling author of Mastering Your Mean Girl and Open Wide, Melissa Ambrosini. Melissa also hosts the #1 podcast “The Melissa Ambrosini Show,” as well as being a motivational speaker and self-love teacher.
In this episode Melissa shares how her business works, including the 13 different revenue streams she and her husband Nick have created, and she also reveals the difficult time where she ended up in the hospital in 2010, as well as how she created her internationally known brand teaching others to love themselves.
We also discuss Melissa’s role as a stepmom, how to raise sex-positive and body confident kids, the best ways to practice self-love, and a whole lot more.
