The Wellness Revolution Podcast with Amber Shaw

TWR 070: The Beauty of Answering Life Calls with Melissa Carcache

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution, Amber interviews Melissa Carcache. Melissa is an actress, producer, and podcaster who sees a huge value in spreading her message and being able to talk about what she is most passionate about, on any given platform. Through the world of podcasting, Melissa found her true ‘calling’ and is now presented with a great opportunity to help others, speaking with her own voice.

Today, Melissa talks about her own past with the actress career, how it all unfolded for her, and how she could co-plan and co-create her most recent scripted web series ‘Hialeah’ that plays a tribute to the place in which she grew up. Melissa also tells us a little bit about the constant shifts that she had in her adult journey, going from one career to another, and explains that sometimes we should embrace all the possibilities and drop the idea that there’s just one purpose for us in this life.
