2020 means perfect vision.

<<First Name>>,

How are you?

I laugh when I think about how positive we might have been when I sent out my last newsletter at the beginning of 2020. "New decade! New me!" were all the messages we got in the news or we told ourselves.

And then the pandemic hit, and enough deaths of Black people to warrant a worldwide movement and awareness of racism in our own lives.

Not a day goes by that I'm grateful that my husband and I had paid work coming in, still get to live in our home in beautiful Vancouver, and kept ourselves busy with TV, movies, neighbourhood walks, and our regular exercise routine long enough to keep our minds off of everything.

Four months in, the province of BC is in "phase 3" of our economy re-opening and while we're still being cautious about socializing, we're back to driving to the grocery store (shoutout to Eternal Abundance for delivering my vegan groceries for about 12 weeks!) and visiting family and friends a few times a month.

Since March, I re-launched "The Vegan Copywriter" as The Content Doctor, managed content for the online magazine TruHavn, and started taking courses on Book Editing. As part of my ongoing education on anti-racism, I've taken Spiritual Activism 101 and 102 by Rachel Ricketts, started a resource list on anti-racism for Asians (Filipinxs in particular), and have attended online events organized by and for Filipinxs, and on diversity and inclusion.

I still believe that this year has given us an almost-perfect vision of the state our world is in and how important it is to not only invest in our own wellness, but be conscious, critical, and empathetic to everyone—and to animals and the Earth—no matter what gender or race you are.


Wanna see my receipts?

Here is a list of organizations that I've donated to:

Money isn't the only way you can (or should) combat racism, but I've posted these links for awareness of all the organizations who are fighting for racial justice today.
I was very lucky to be gifted with an online course by Vegan Mainstream called The Passionate Entrepreneur. This is the Business 101 course I wish I'd had if I was vegan in 2008! I highly recommend it and all of the other useful courses in VM's roster for anyone starting a business, especially from home. Click the image above to see all of their offerings.

Help to decriminalize nature!

Mounting evidence from leading medical research institutions tell us that plant medicines are uniquely effective in treating depression, trauma and addiction, and end-of-life anxiety.

These potentially life-saving medicines are currently illegal. It’s time to decriminalize. Click below to sign the petition and e-mail your Members of Parliament (MPs).
Decriminalize Nature

Fav blogs in 2020 so far

With the amount of business owners in Vancouver getting called out on social media for their "performative" posts for the Black movement, tone-deafness, or acting unethically in general, it's become so clear to me how important knowledge of internal public relations is. If you aren't running your company well internally, you won't have a good image externally.

If you're in business and haven't read my book on PR, please click below to order the e-book or physical book from me or on Amazon (as much as I no longer want to support them, I still need to make more money on the platform to get my royalty cheque in hand).
This is YOUR tell me what you want. What you really, really want.
This newsletter (so far) doesn't include any tips about business or content writing or editing, but do you want it to? I want to respect your time. Let me know!

E-mail or DM me on social media if I can help you with anything. So grateful for you reading!
