You Asked, I Answered: Don’t Blame Me for Delivering the Hard Truth


The Mel Robbins Podcast: Coaching


Listen to the Mel Robbins Podcast twice per week, every Monday and Thursday, to achieve the life of your dreams.


In today’s episode, we are trying something new, and absolutely anything goes. You’ve been flooding my inbox with questions, problems, sticky situations, and big, big dreams and goals.

So today, because you asked, I am going to show up and deliver the hard truth, the surprising advice, the tricks to get you out of any pickle, and the inspiration that you need to take that next step.

Nothing is off the table. So don’t f***ing blame me when I tell you how it is. 

I’ve got a pile of hundreds and thousands of YOUR questions, and I’m giving you the coaching you need.

This might be my favorite episode I ever recorded.

We are going to cover:

  • When it’s time to walk away from a friendship (hint: when these 2 things disappear)
  • How it’s about damn time you stop dating for potential
  • How to use the ‘Let Them Theory’ to protect your energy
  • ONE tool you need to make decisions without overthinking
  • What’s keeping you from getting a raise or promotion, and more importantly, what should you do to get it
  • How to get someone you love to go to therapy (and when it’s time to walk away)
  • Why a mid-life crisis is actually your greatest opportunity

Oh, and we will cover my favorite swear word for the season (I can’t write it here, so you’ll have to listen).

You will laugh with me in this episode, and you will also get advice you need to hear. 

But don’t blame me if it is TMI—you asked for it!

Xo, Mel
