An inspiring, upbeat, beautiful and affirming handbook to help women find their natural confidence and learn how to love themselves.
Are you ready to activate your dream life?
You know that sneaky voice inside your head telling you that you're not good enough, smart enough, skinny enough, whatever enough? That's your Mean Girl. And she's doing her best to keep you stuck in Fear Town, too scared to go after the life you always imagined.
But enough's enough! Melissa Ambrosini has made a life beyond her wildest dreams, all by mastering her Mean Girl, busting through limiting beliefs and karate-chopping through the fears that held her hostage for years. And now she wants to help you remember not only what you are capable of, but how amazing you truly are!
In this inspiring, upbeat guide, Melissa provides a practical plan for creating your own version of a kick-ass life - one that's wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy and bursting with love. Designed to propel you out of stuck-ness and into action, it's a must-read if you are ready to stop being held back by your Mean Girl and start living the life of your dreams.

'Melissa is a wonderful example of someone who is absolutely real - who can speak from the heart and is brave enough to draw upon and openly share her own personal experiences to prove that self-belief is the modern woman's most valuable practice.' Lorna Jane Clarkson, Lorna Jane founder
'Mastering Your Mean Girl is a beautiful read to help transform the way you speak to yourself. If you struggle with mastering your inner critic, let big-hearted Melissa guide you towards enhancing your relationship with your lovely self.' Dr Libby Weaver, nutritional biochemist, author and speaker
Health and life coach Ambrosini will charm some readers and push others away with this guide to silencing one's inner critic, the titular "Mean Girl," and making life choices out of love instead of fear. Tactics to "flex your self-love muscle" include scheduling relaxation time, meditating, and using self-affirmations. Ambrosini encourages developing a healthy relationship with food, independent of the Mean Girl's (and society's) judgments, an admirable pursuit even if the food philosophy she outlines is a bit severe. Career advice focuses on finding and articulating a passion and rethinking limiting beliefs about money. Her thoughts on interpersonal relationships include avoiding the "expectation hangover" and "comparisonitis" in favor of genuine friendships with appropriate boundaries. Perhaps Ambrosini's wisest words concern getting over past wrongs, especially self-perpetuated ones. Throughout the book, exercises called "Inspo-actions" provide space for readers to reflect on managing expectations for themselves and others, expressing gratitude, and recognizing self-sabotage. For readers who would like to leave your "penthouse in Fear Town" for a "mansion in Love City," Ambrosini is here to help. Those who cringe at phrases like those (not to mention "be your own bestie," "soul sisters," and "goddess night") should seek help elsewhere.
I got so much out of this book and highly recommend it. I think it was meant to find me at the right time in my life! Thank you Melissa.
I feel like I’m reading my life in paper. I’m my biggest critic and mean girl (bully as I call it) to know that a successful woman has gone through this gives me hope. Thank you so sharing and giving me hope. 💜💜💜
