Mission Driven Monday--Melanie Dale


When I first started hosting Mission Driven Monday, I did it with Melanie in mind. I knew she would be the first person I’d interview. And she was—except I accidentally deleted the conversation, and so we had to do it again last week (Whoopsie!)

Actually, the timing was perfect.

Melanie has a new book coming out tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow! In it, she chronicles her battle with infertility. You might be thinking, “Yuck! Who wants to talk about that?” Well, let me just tell you—Melanie wrote the book she wishes she had when she was going through all the hard stuff. Let her hold your hand while you cry, but don’t be surprised if she has you laughing out loud before the end of the first chapter.

We’ve been friends for over a decade, and we’re the kind of friends that make each other better. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Melanie today!

Follow your mission, not the madness.

What We Talked About in This Episode:

1) Do something creative everyday

2) Find a way to laugh about the hard stuff

3) Stay healthy by filling up with the things that make you feel healthy and strong.
