Set Better Boundaries: Overcome Uncomfortable Conversations, Spot Manipulation Red Flags, & Take Back Control Of Your Time with Melissa Urban

Plus tips for setting boundaries in your romantic relationships & friendships, at work, with your parents, & with yourself.

I’m so excited to welcome Melissa Urban to the podcast. You’ve probably heard of Melissa as the co-founder of Whole30—she’s a six-time New York Times bestselling author, has a social media following of over 350,000 people, and her work has been featured by the New York Times, People, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Today Show, and more. Through the Whole30, Melissa found an avenue to empower people to set and hold boundaries, which led to her newest book—The Book of Boundaries: Set The Limits That Will Set You Free. On this episode, we talk about:  

  • why setting boundaries is important
  • how to know exactly what boundaries to set
  • exact scripts to set boundaries around: people commenting on your weigh or pushing you to drink alcohol or party, a boss who wants you to work all the time, a friend who wants you to spend a ton of money on her bachelorette or wedding
  • how to overcome fear of confrontation
  • Melissa’s top confidence tips
  • quiet quitting 
  • how to deal when you disagree with other people on what boundaries need to be set
  • how to show up to support other peoples’ boundaries better
  • why it’s so important to set boundaries with yourself + exactly how to do it
  • a science-backed secret to increasing willpower 
  • the number one thing people get wrong about setting boundaries 
  • and so much more!
