Well, hello there 2015. How are you?

2014 was a razor sharp double edged sword.  Green Mustard Entertainment took off in the midst of back to back tragedies in my personal life.  It was insane, overwhelming, exhausting, and just a bit daunting.  It’s over, though, and I survived – so there’s that, right? As I plan to...
