Welcome to my new subscribers!
- Made buttermilk biscuits for the first time via Tandem Coffee’s famous recipe. I had donated in 2020 to access the recipe but hadn’t had the energy to make them until this weekend. They’re so tasty and I highly recommend them!
- I have two retainer coaching spots (minimum 3 months) opening up in the next few months. If you think you need marketing coaching, take a look at my services. I keep my coaching client count low both for my sanity and so I can be responsive to clients.
- March 16 is the one-year anniversary of the Atlanta spa shootings. If you are looking for a supportive space and are Asian, there is a free group session coming up that is therapist-led.

Normally, this section would have some original essay or short article that’s written for my newsletter subscribers. But as I was assembling the newsletter issue, I received news that I have to report in for jury duty (in SF, you’re on standby for a week and have to check every day if you need to go in the next day).

So instead, I’m linking you to the talk I presented last week for Barista League’s High Density program. The worksheet and slides are available for free to download. The talk is less than 15 minutes.

I am also offering a one-hour paid consult for those who have gone through the worksheet and would like feedback or actionable tips from me. All the info is on the page linked below.

Got a new Calathea warscewiczii to replace one that has root rot. I replanted the old one to see if it could be rescued and it seems to be perking backup. Fingers crossed!
