Greetings everyone, thanks for being a subscriber to this newsletter. I am contemplating switching platforms from the still pretty cool Tinyletter (where you signed up) to this new tool (Revue) which allows easier importing and curation of my best finds and other morsels worth sharing. 
Please let me know how you like this new version!
So, here are some of my key learnings and best-of links from the past couple of weeks - all of them hand-picked and proven to be valuable to me, and hopefully to you as well. Some of my own stuff is sprinkled in here, as well, just for good measure:)
Enjoy and ping me anytime if you need something. Please note that I am having some serious offline luxury Dec7-28 so don’t be surprised if I’m a bit slower to respond than usual.
Kind regards, and happy holidays to you!
