This week, we are expanding.
Our home-grown, hand-made publications are ready for change. The tipping point came during discussions at the Business of Sustainability forum on Earth Day last week. I met interesting people and made new friends from around the world who recognize our unique characteristics.
Some even share my vision for Hong Kong and even though I was dreaming big when I wrote it 13 years ago, I have witnessed many positive changes since then.
The time has come. HK heartbeat has grown.
More of you are asking for business advice, so I did a little homework and discovered just many of you are using heartbeat at work as well as at home. Surprised and delighted by my discovery, I decided now is the time for the next steps.
So, beginning in May, you will see a shift in focus. This newsletter will feature insights and highlights from the natural HK community along with the option to update your profile and receive weekend updates.
I will launch heartbeat business shortly. This new edition will include industry news and a bit of advice plus opportunities from the network — watch for a special welcome offer.
Listing priority is now given to qualified advertisers so I can keep your newsletter free while keeping the lights on. Editorial listings favor our Community Sponsorship Program in support of our local volunteers. You may see fewer calendar events but you will continue to see a variety of local activities to reflect ongoing growth and positive change in the world’s biggest fishing village.
While I prepare for another long weekend, l plan to take some time out to reflect on where we are now and how I plan to ride this wave of expansion. It is my intention to continue to serve the community while taking a little better care of myself. With growing awareness from people making everyday choices creating pressure on the business world it is the rate of change that has become so unpredictable.
Are you ready for what comes next?
