Contemporary Rock N Roll, Pop Music and The Raskins

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Music

Contemporary rock n roll and Pop music are often linked.  ‘Pop’, which is the abbreviation for Popular music, is a well-known genre. But what is it, exactly?

Get Stuff Done

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Business , Insights

Getting stuff done is at the root of any business venture.  It may sound trivial, but many start-ups strategize themselves right out of business because they don’t get stuff done!
