Welcome 2023

Looking back at the best links of 2022

Cheers to the Year

Happy holidays from all of us at Being Boss HQ. We hope you take time to rest, indulge in some seasonal sweets, and spend time with your loved ones this holiday season.

After the holidays, we’ll be saying “Adios!” to Q4 and 2022 and greeting 2023 and Q1. Are you ready boss? One of the first steps to preparing for a new year and quarter is to review where you’ve been. So if you haven’t started dreaming big about what you’d like to create in 2023, this week’s Brewed has all the top links from 2022 to help you do that. Remember that piece of content that piqued your curiosity or sparked a new idea? If it got lost in the daily shuffle, you just might rediscover it here.

See you next year! 😘 Until then, be boss!
