2 Successful Parties. Wedding & Event Podcast Episode 71

1/19/2021
Throwing a party is a creative yet simple activity: Invite people you like… Provide food and music you like… Combine and mix gently.

11/16/2020
"Events, Creativity, Problem Solving" Wedding & Event Podcast Episode 68 "Necessity is the mother of invention." There’s an old saying by Greek Philosopher Plato that “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Though he said it in Greek I think the concept is easy to understand.
