In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we sit down with Austin Martin, the Founder of Rhymes With Reason, an Educational Technology company that helps students learn literacy through their favourite music.
Austin shares why his own lack of academic motivation led him to think outside of the box, why boredom doesn’t always mean you’re on the wrong path, and how to think bigger than yourself.
