We have been working on being better with communicating our own message (sometimes client work takes precedence). This is one of the “seed” articles we used to refine our content gathering. Our favorite?
To create content at the pace I wanted to, starting about 2½ years ago, I knew I had to give something up. If you know me even just a little, you know it wouldn’t be making or listening to music.
