032 On Turning 1
Incl. Laila Gohar in the FT, The World Around 2022 Summit & SEOura
THANK YOU for following along. Can you believe I had the honor to host you (digitally) for a full year by now? This newsletter turned 1 on January 31 and it has been my greatest pleasure to curate these content finds for you.
As Laila Gohar, my fav chef/food artist from New York explains in her newly started column in the FT:
For as long as I remember, I have been obsessed with creating moments of magic around the dining table.
Consider this a loose guide, not a recipe. (…)
A true host is a person generous enough to give a piece of themselves. And giving yourself means giving time to sit and enjoy the people you love. All good parties are thrown for that reason.
Have a super start into this week 🚀

“Blogs aren’t dead. Email isn’t dead. Pinterest isn’t just for interieur & recipes.” Have you ever wondered how your audience can find you instead of grasping for their attention on Social Media networks? It might be time for you to meet the queen of Regenerative Content Creation: Christina Danetzky (aka Matcha Mornings).

With step-by-step guides you learn how to build your business and lean back while maximizing your time spend behind screens.
