A few things most people don’t know about Melody:

If I had to choose a soundtrack for my career, it would be…
“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor

The book that has helped me the most in business is…
Die Empty: Unleash your Best Work Every Day by Todd Henry

Hidden talent?
I can pat my head and rub my stomach at the same time – is that even a talent?

The first thing I do every day is…
Make my bed, then make a cup of coffee.

The most unusual item in my desk drawer is…
A nickel my father gave me when I was a child for doing chores. It’s a daily reminder of what you can accomplish through hard work.

Guilty pleasure?
