Hi! I'm Rachel, the Left Brain of Drio.

Does your social media feed give you the feels?

Hey Reader,

They say “What you put out into the universe comes back to you.”

While it doesn’t always work that way, there’s truth to it.

On a smaller scale, I’ve felt it in my social media circle—particularly LinkedIn, which is the main platform I’m active on.

Over the last few years, I’ve curated this digital community of like-minded people who fill my feed with education and inspiration.

Sure, the algorithm can do mysterious things sometimes…

But overall, I get excited to see the people in my feed. They’re talking about similar issues I’m involved with and educating me on others I might not otherwise know about.

It’s energizing to see them out there doing great things. It motivates me to keep talking about the initiatives I care about, whether personally, with Drio, or with Monument Women’s Creative Alliance.

Plus, it helps us attract potential prospects who share our values. Win-win.

It all boils down to leading with our brand values online. By talking about the things we stand for (rather than only hard-selling), we curate an ecosystem that gives us much more than surface-level likes and engagement.

It gives us connection.

You can do the same. Here’s some inspiration to get you started:

Let’s keep having the conversations that matter!

Hi Reader, I’ve got to tell you about this coffee shop in Baltimore called Artifact. The food and drinks are great, but do you know what really keeps me and Rachel coming back (and telling all our friends about)? The Larry Factor. You feel it as soon as you walk in. Every time we see Larry behind the counter, he makes a point to brighten our day, make us laugh, and treat us like we’re his only customers (which we’re definitely not). He serves the most delightful experience, not just a nice...

Hi Reader, I cleaned out my pantry for the first time in 14 years. (Pause for applause.) 👏 Maybe the chirping birds and sprouting buds put me in spring-cleaning mode. But I just hit a wall and couldn’t deal with the lack of organization any longer. Years of old cans and bags of snacks had piled up, and it was practically impossible to tell what was on each shelf. That meant we often restocked food items that were already in the pantry—which is the worst. So I decided it was high time for a...
