Hi, I'm Koya

“Everything is always unfolding the way it’s supposed to, and the universe has a divine timeline for me and my life events, and I just need to keep showing up as the best version of myself, and not get in the way of that.”

Meet Melissa Ambrosini

Melissa Ambrosini is the bestselling author of Comparisonitis, Mastering Your Mean Girl, Open Wide and PurposeFULL, the host of the top-rated podcast The Melissa Ambrosini Show, a keynote speaker, and entrepreneur. Named a ‘self-help guru’ by Elle Magazine, her mission is to inspire others to unlock their full potential and live their dream life. With a deep commitment to empowering others to become the best version of themselves, Melissa believes that transformation is possible for everyone. She strives to inspire others to reclaim their power, step into their truth, live with intention, and move in the direction of their dreams.

Melissa is uniquely positioned to blow the lid off the toxic disease of comparisonitis, having worked extensively in industries where comparison culture is not only rampant, but openly encouraged—including a decade treading the boards as a successful actor, model and dancer (including a year-long stint performing at the Moulin Rouge in Paris), before “accidentally” becoming a social media influencer with hundreds of thousands of followers. Melissa is married to a rockstar (literally), and currently lives in Australia with her husband Nick Broadhurst, bonus son, and their new baby girl, Bambi.

In This Episode

Listen in as we learn more about Melissa and her story, the inspiration behind her book, and discuss the importance of moving beyond comparison. She breaks down her A.C.E.S. Technique so that you can use it to help move past those moments of comparing yourselves to others. You are the most magical unique special being, and there’s no need to compare yourself to others. She discusses how we can use these feelings as motivation, or fuel to improve, without feeling triggered or depressed about what you currently lack. “The world is going to benefit from you being proactive, and using your voice from that place of love.”
