About Mel - Mel Robbins - Mel Robbins About Mel - Mel Robbins

Hi, it’s Mel.
I can’t wait
to meet you.

After screwing up my life for the first 40 years, I finally figured out how to change my habits and I’ve become a happier, more confident, more fulfilled person because of it. 

My mission is to teach you how to do the same in your life. In EVERY aspect of your life. 

Because if I can do it, you sure as hell can do it. Ready?

A few things
about me

60M+ people per month interact with me on social media (and I love them all to bits).

$800,000 in debt just over a decade ago (so I’ve been there and know what it feels like).

700,000+ subscribers on my newsletter list, and that may be because I only manage to get a newsletter out every few months. 

12 different careers. Yes, really, including hosting a daytime syndicated talk show with Sony Pictures Television. I taped 168 episodes of The Mel Robbins Show––and then was promptly fired in March of 2020. 

2M copies sold, 33 languages, and 100,000+ five-star reviews for The 5 Second Rule, which was 2017’s Audible’s nonfiction bestseller and most successful self-published audiobook of all time. The fact that I published it amazes me, given how I struggled with ADHD and dyslexia. And also explains why it took me 4 years to finish my new book, The High 5 Habit.

26M views on my TEDx talk, “How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over.”

5 years at CNN as a legal analyst, covering some of the biggest social justice cases of our time. Most people also don’t know I began my career in 1994 as a criminal defense attorney in NYC for Legal Aid.  

35 years I struggled with anxiety, panic attacks, and the impact of untreated childhood trauma. Not anymore, thanks to the tools in The 5 Second Rule, The High 5 Habit, and EMDR––I’m a changed human being, which is why my mission in life is to share simple, proven tools that anyone, at any age, can use to change thinking and behavior patterns.

100 people (and counting) who have reached out and said they stopped a suicide attempt and asked for help because of The 5 Second Rule––out of everything I’ve done in life, this is the the thing I’m proudest of.

500,000+ students in my online courses.

6 number one audiobooks released on Audible. 

1 Gracie Award: America’s Outstanding News Talk Show Host.

26 years together with my husband Christopher Robbins (yes, that’s his name). We have 3 kids, ages 22, 21, and 16, which means I have a tremendous amount of embarrassing and relatable stories about my family to share.

But Also…

I made life harder than it needed to be. For decades I trash-talked and shamed myself. I let perfectionism, anxiety, people-pleasing, and other self-sabotaging habits take over until I hardly recognized myself. If you saw me, you’d say I was positive and cheerful, but inside I was relentlessly beating myself up and frustrated that life never went my way.

Can you relate?

It’s exhausting. If you’re like me, you probably never gave yourself a break. You’re incredibly hard on yourself and to top it all off, you ask yourself, “Why isn’t my life working?” You just can’t get where you want to be and even after all this time you have no idea what’s holding you back.

It’s time to take a step toward the life you want.

I can show you how.

The simple step you need to take control of your life

Reinventing your life — getting what you really want in work, home, and in your relationships may seem hard.

It’s not. You can do it. You just need to know how. And I can’t wait to share it with you.

In my latest book, the #1 bestseller The High 5 Habit, you’ll learn the one proven habit that gives you the confidence to transform your life. It changes the most important relationship you have on this planet: the relationship you have with yourself.
