​Breezin’ Magazine is proud to announce its second issue that will launch on Oct. 24, 2018. The entrepreneurial issue will feature a ‘Behind the Hustle’ look and view on event entertainment, entrepreneurship, and Tampa Bay business professionals. The magazine's most anticipated article highlights this year’s ’40 Under 40’ 2018 list, which recognizes young entrepreneurs, artists, and innovators, that have been proactive in the Tampa Bay Area.
