Scratching the Surface is an online show featuring interviews of high profile, diverse, and real women who unveil their inner secrets about self-worth and self-esteem with the Identity Five.
“I’m a “jersey girl” (but nothing like you see on Jersey Shore — I promise). My husband, Gary, is a dog trainer and our dog Jake is a very precocious Aussie Shepherd” – Melissa Cassera
Melissa Cassera, a living “Swedish Meatball” – 50% Swedish and 50% Italian. We wanted to catch Melissa on the Identity 5 show because she is always on the go and we always see her upbeat, happy and loving life. We wanted to know how she gets all A’s in the game of life and was it always like that. What are her challenges, imperfections, and what is it she still wants to achieve?

I’m Melody Stevens, aka Time Millionaire. I have discovered that the best teachers in business (and life) are the ones who have made the most colossal mistakes, and have lived to tell about them. So, by that criteria, I DEFINITELY qualify.
I am a 14 year veteran music studio owner (now with 2 locations), singer, consultant, mother, wife, homeowner, and I am here to share some of my incredible business and life education with you. I want you to know that, years ago, I was a mess. My particular brand of mess included making really bad business decisions that cost me outrageous sums of money-well into the 7 figures, I worked all the time, I was constantly overeating, obsessively yo-yo dieting, walking on eggshells with people, I was dealing with abuse and I was formally diagnosed with ADD and codependence.
My recovery from all of this has given me what I have today including a successful company that runs almost completely without me, several additional, exciting business projects, a loving marriage and family life, and a 30 pound weight loss I’ve sustained for over 2 years without dieting.
I now spend my days on high dividend activities that earn me more and more time including working ON my businesses, not in them, participating in exercise paradises, raising my daughter, dating my husband and hanging out with the family members and friends that I most enjoy. I HAVE MY FREEDOM! And I can help give you yours.
Millions of business owners and working parents are STRESSED and WORKING WAY TOO HARD on things that are ultimately counterproductive to their goals and aspirations.
