Joining us in this podcast is Melissa Ambrosini and her husband, Nick Broadhurst! We’ve always loved them from afar but since recording this podcast, we’ve also become great friends! And it’s not every day that we get to interview another couple… so we think you’ll really enjoy this episode and the perspective that they bring!
Melissa and Nick are both incredible individuals and even more incredible as a couple when they come together! Melissa is a bestselling author of two incredible books, the host of a top-rated podcast, a keynote speaker, content creator, and entrepreneur. She has a deep commitment to empowering others to become their best selves, reclaim their power, live with intention, and step into their truth. Nick is a meditation advocate, visual artist, entrepreneur, singer, songwriter, and performer. His debut album, Thank You, has over 16 million streams and his podcast that he recorded over 12 months in 2018 was top-rated globally and provided thousands of listeners with insights around sex, mindset, creativity, health, and money.
In this episode, we get into a whole range of topics around relationships! Melissa and Nick let us into their lives and tell us invaluable stories and lessons they’ve learned throughout the course of their relationship — from marriage to intimacy to challenges they’ve faced. They provide tips, tools, and actionable advice to those looking to improve their relationships, overcome insecurities, become closer with their partner, increase intimacy, and shake things up if things are getting stagnant! You won’t want to miss this one.
