Business Practice Playlist Blog

The Business Practice Playlist takes an alternative spin on music, mixing it into business advice for people working creative fields. While I write many of them, guest Blog Jockeys are invited to lay down some verse highlighting song-inspired ideas in their work lives. We can all learn so much from each other, and everybody likes music, right?
