I love bands, so I’m dedicating the month of September to them. You can follow me on Twitter for #LifeProTips for bands this month. My all-time favorite music genre is rock, so naturally most of my top favorite musical acts are bands. I also live and work in Atlanta, where bands seem to be the predominant art form, at least in the live venues I frequent.

Even among the best of us, either one of those tasks would be challenging enough, so to succeed at both takes a whole lot of commitment and a little bit of smart planning.
