How Your Inner Mean Girl is Holding You Back with Jaclyn Mellone

Jaclyn Mellone is a mindset and marketing mentor, speaker and co-hostess of the All Up In Your Lady Business podcast. She helps passionate, creative entrepreneurs channel their zone of genius, tackle their inner mean girls, and build Know, Love and Trust with themselves and their tribe.

When she’s not helping entrepreneurs create their own version of success, from the inside out, you can find Jaclyn spending time with her husband Chris, their 2 adorable children, Eleanor and Marshall or being lounged on by their fur-child, Louie… most likely in a sea of naked Barbies and dismantled Lego sets. 

Here are a few of the big topics we talked about:

  • Jaclyn shares what she allowed her inner critic to hold her back from (it’s really juicy and good!)

  • The stories we tell ourselves and how we can move past them.

  • We talk journaling (and don’t forget to sign-up for my next journaling challenge).

  • Jaclyn describes the different ways that fear can show up in our lives.

  • How to keep your “inner mean girl” in check

  • There are times when we need to recreate our self-image.

  • Both ladies are former “stuffers” and have a process to work through what comes up.

  • Episode 39 - Self-Forgiveness

  • The emotional rush you can get when you regular journal through your experiences.

  • Setting reasonable expectations for yourself when it comes to the time you give yourself to meditate or journal, for example.

  • Jaclyn shares what her inner voice is telling her right now.

In Jaclyn's Voice:

“I'm really setting my eyes on things that might be unexpected and being open to that and not trying to plan it all out.”

“We're just telling ourselves a story, and that's not necessarily the way it has to be. It's just the way that we're seeing it, and we're so trained to see it through a certain lens.”

“Building self-awareness is going to unlock a lot of answers for you.”

“Things feel different. They feel heavier. They feel bigger when they're in our head, so if we're able to get them out, we're able to look at it with a little bit more of an analytical brain.”

“I've done so much mindset work, too -- that it allows me to have a deep understanding of my clients needs.”

“Procrastination is a form of self-sabotage.”
