A peek into my weekly schedule in New York City during lockdown.
Here's what I tune into. Scroll down to check it out!
With The Glimpse Collective
With Rob Estreitinho
With Lauren Martin
The Glimpse Collective is a global network of creative minds who want to use their skills for good.
I've dedicated these weeks to exercise my strategy skillset for good people and good businesses with some amazing and motivated people. I've worked on two projects: Little Village and #whatmatters.

Salmon Theory by Rob Estreitinho is a philosophy newsletter for smart and hopeful minds. I'm stoked that the newsletters have shifted from weekly to 'daily notes of hope'. It pulls out thoughts and injects them into our present, each talking about emotional advantage, going slow, happiness vs meaning, romanticism and finding greatness in the ordinary and so much more. I am usually left with thought provoking questions and the right frame of mind to start my day. My personal fav is the one about Margaret Heffernan and rebuilding recognition.
