This week we are excited to be joined by a close friend of ours, Melissa Wood! Melissa is a digital entrepreneur, the founder of Melissa Wood Health, and the creator of The MWH Method. Not only do we love her transformative, game-changing workouts, but we love her and her family as well. She’s inspirational, incredible, and is transforming the lives of people all around the world by helping them build a better, stronger relationship with themselves.


As always, we get into some pretty deep stuff in this episode. Melissa shares her personal story of struggling to find her place in this world, as well as the ups and downs of the relationships that came along with it. Oftentimes — and especially with social media — we tend to hold people up on a pedestal and think that they are perfect. But in reality, we’re only actually seeing a small fraction of their lives. In our conversation with Melissa today, she pulls back the curtain on perfection and speaks about the reality of life behind-the-scenes of a recovering perfectionist. She shares about overcoming her struggles with feelings of shame and worthlessness; facing her sh*t to reach her truest potential; seeking conflict, friction, and tough conversations in order to grow; finding the time to connect intimately and emotionally with her partner through ‘micro-moments’; and much, much more. There were so many key insights from Melissa in this episode and we know you guys are going to love the raw, honest conversation we had with her.
