The Songs Like To Be In Control: Interview with Singer/Songwriter Atir
My wife and I love to indulge in new music during the holidays, buying the year’s trendiest pop album or a new soundtrack we want to get to know and then listening to it throughout our days off together.

Every Dollar Thrice: Business Strategy & My Imaginary Pumpkin Farm
“Imagine this is your pumpkin farm,” my friend Dallas says. She is trying to help me grow my business and has just suggested I revise my years-ago-templated contracts. I have responded to her suggestion by showing her my robust social media posting and curating schedule, proof that I don't have time to screw around with re-doing contracts that work fine. I’m proud of my social media marketing strategy. It works. It keeps me busy. “So, I’m visiting your pumpkin farm during a really amazing, ......
