Our two new stories this week seem completely different on the surface. One: an expert chats with us about building an anti-racist business. The other: a store owner chats with us about how she makes pretty and stylish flatlays for her Instagram feed.

You already know that running your own business means owning and wearing all the hats. 👩🏻‍🎓🧑🏾‍🌾🧑🏽‍🍳🧑🏼‍✈️🤶 So it makes sense that both articles would be completely relevant to most of our readers, even though in a big company they'd likely represent completely different departments.

But there's one thing in particular that struck us when we were publishing them both, and that's that equity and inclusion strategist Amrita Aggarwal and retail store owner Tiu Tabak were both very clear that whether you're trying to improve your photos or your business policies, taking a single step is the important part. After that step, you can learn, revise, repeat and improve. But if you wait until everything is perfect, you'll be waiting forever. It's good business advice and life advice, too.

Save the date! Content strategist Jasmine Williams will be joining us for a webinar on March 30 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET to talk about why your business story matters and how it can help you succeed. Keep an eye on our events page for details.

In other news, we've set dates for the next three Show & Tell get-togethers, and we hope you'll be able to make them. We always leave the sessions invigorated about the projects we're working on. Plus there are more awesome events heading to your inbox soon. Stay tuned for more.

Yours in making,

Co-founders Corinna vanGerwen and Kat Tancock
