A moment with Melissa Ambrosini


Melissa is one of Australia's most sought-after motivational speakers. Her core message — that love is sexy, healthy is liberating, and wealthy isn’t a dirty word — has helped audiences across Australia, New Zealand, the US and more, to take ownership of their lives and unlock their true potential.

Melissa is our special guest speaker for A Very Virago Christmas. We can’t wait to be inspired by this beautiful woman but wanted to share a little bit of her wisdom before the event.

What do you do?

I help people unlock their full potential and live their best life. I do that via multiple different  mediums such as books, live events, my podcast; The Melissa Ambrosini Show, my social media platforms, online programs, ebooks and meditations.

Why do you do what you do?

I was born to do this. I was born to help others. I hit rock bottom in 2010 and ended up in hospital very unwell and unhappy with a whole host of both physical and mental health issues. I realised I went through that incredibly challenging (yet expansive) time so that I could share what I learned and to help others unlock their full potential to live their best life. This is why I am here on earth.

Can you believe 2019 is just around the corner, what have have been your highlights for 2018?

Some of my career highlights have been:

  • The sold out life changing Open Wide tour I did with my husband to celebrate the launch of my latest book and his epic music.

  • Launching the Open Wide Masterclass.

  • Speaking to over 250 women with Nick for the Empowering Women In Property Event.

  • All the amazing speaking gigs I have done this year and getting to connect with all the amazing humans at each of them.

  • Our trip to the USA and the Conscious Relationships Masterclass I did with Nick and Sahara Rose.

  • Every podcast episode I have launched and the conversations I was able to have with some of the most inspiring people on the planet.  

  • Hitting 4.5 millions downloads on my podcast.

Some personal highlights have been:

  • We bought and renovated our dream home.

  • Nick and I both did our meditation teacher training.  

  • Nick and I learnt ballroom and latin dancing, which was so much fun.


What can people expect to see in 2019?

Creativity is unlocked when we collaborate. So I think 2019 is going to see more collaborations on both personal and professional levels. Which is very exciting!

Why is it important to set intentions for the year?

Setting intentions help you stay on track with your personal and career goals.

What does setting intentions look like?

It’s very simple, grab a pen and paper, sit down in a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted and answer these questions…

  1. How do I want to feel in 2019?

  2. What do I want to achieve?

  3. What do I want to create both personally and in my career?

Get super clear on these answers. The more detail you give, the better.

What are your intentions for 2019?

I want 2019 to be full of fun, play, family, sunshine, love, joy and daily adventures with my loved ones. I want to continue to collaborate with epic humans and create magic in the world. I want to inspire millions all over the world with my books, programs, events, social media and podcast.

What song will we see you dancing on the dance floor too?

Of course Open Wide, Little Lover or any of my husband @iamnickbroadhurst’s amazing music.

What is your signature dance move?

I love dancing but I don’t have a signature move.
