Twitter tips for small businesses + a podcast interview
Hi there! It’s been a stacked two weeks for me.
I leveled up my plant hobby by attending an in-person swap. It was <10 people but we were nerdy and it was lovely.
Midterm elections happened in the US, which basically took out my whole last week.
Attended a panel/podcast recording & signing of Grace Bonney’s Good Company Issue 2 tour! It was inspiring to listen to how local creatives and activists take on fear in their lives.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy this newsletter issue!
