- You’ve Got 16 Weeks
I was on the phone yesterday discussing sales projections and strategy with one of my coaching clients, and he said something that startled me, “but Mel, there’s only 16 weeks left in the year.” 16 weeks?! The kids just went back to school! How is that possible? That’s not a lot of time. I have [...]
- Book Launch Horror Stories: Survival Tales from Stop Saying You’re Fine
For the past three years, I’ve been working on my first book—Stop Saying You’re Fine. Writing your first book is exactly like starting a business. You plan, you work your tail off, you obsess about every detail and then you throw open the doors and hope for a stampede of customers on Day One.
My first book went on sale this week. And just like every business launch, nothing went according to plan. In fact, last night, all hell broke loose. Here’s what happened…
It all started three years ago. I was lucky enough to be invited to give a keynote for the Boston Chamber of Commerce in 2008.
At the end of that event, Paul Guzzi—the CEO of the Chamber of Commerce—said. “Mel, if you ever write a book, we’d love to have you back.”
It took me three years to get it done, but the day the book went on sale, I knew there was only one place that I wanted to be for the launch date—before the Chamber of Commerce; and by the grace of God, and some big fans at the Chamber of Commerce, we actually pulled it off. My book launch would happen three years from the date that Paul said that fateful sentence to me.
So, it’s all perfect, right?
Not so. The night before the big launch, I was sitting on my bed and I suddenly realized, “Holy Cow—I don’t have a book seller lined up for tomorrow…. I have no books… CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
- What a Day for Daydreams
In the 1850s, Ernest and Pierre lived their childhoods kicking rocks up and down the cobble stoned streets of Bar-le-Duc, France. Their father, a blacksmith, spent his days hammering away at carriage parts, with the clang against the anvil echoing through the cement walled town. Ernest and Pierre, carrying heavy bags and wooden crates of [...]
In honor of this Sunday’s celebration of Father’s Day, I wanted to take a look at three very famous fathers. Joe was a very good basketball player, known on the rugged Philadelphia playgrounds as “Jellybean Joe,” a 6-foot-9-inch forward who possessed the skills of a point guard. At one point in his professional basketball career, [...]
- He’s an Idol, She’s an Idol, I’m an Idol…
This past Tuesday night, there was nothing on television. Typically, my Tuesdays, beginning in January and all through May, are filled with American Idol and the heartbreak, the laughter and the hours of dialing and texting votes for our favorite Idol. But just because a winner was crowned nearly a week ago, it doesn’t mean [...]
- Every Journey Begins with a Single GPS
There I was in California, in a tiny rental car, and every turn seemed more wrong than the last. I was running late. I should’ve called. And, now, calling would seem desperate and rude. I’m an “expert” on things like control, planning and achieving. So what sort of expert ignores the instructions given them on [...]
- Who is Mel Robbins?
Let’s talk absolutes. Politicians will break their campaign promises. New Year’s resolutions will be broken. Dieting is only successful until the next birthday or holiday. Promises have a funny way of evaporating. But can I get you to try one more promise if I make a promise in return? Come back to this blog again [...]
