What's in season in June?

June is packed with fresh fruits and vegetables coming into season.

The start of proper summertime in the UK, June is when the hot weather might actually start. Like, shorts-hot, stick-the-fan-on-hot, running-out-for-ice-lollies-hot.

Also in June?

National donut day. I love donuts, and have published a few recipes for gluten-free and vegan donuts over the years, from a healthy baked coconut version to a not-so-healthy, deep-fried-and-rolled-in-sugar version (pictured).

Fried doughnuts remind me of summer days on the Yorkshire coast, where you can buy hot paper bags of fresh-from-the-fryer doughnuts, dredged in crunchy sugar that leaves your face and hands covered in sticky crystals for hours.

June 2019 personal update

Hypergrowth London

Right at the start of June, I attended Drift’s Hypergrowth. I don’t talk about my day job often, (I work 3-days a week in content & digital marketing at a software company). Drift is a chatbot tool we use in my day job, so I got to attend the conference in London. It was awesome, but I came home feeling like a needed a long rest because #IntrovertProbs. I put down some of the takeaways I got from the speakers, that could inspire me in my own business & blog in this Instagram post, but here they are below, too:

  • Pretty much everything from Victoria Pendleton @victorialou struck a chord: “They had a certain idea of how things should be, in their head, but that’s just because they hadn’t come across someone like me yet”; “I don’t do things because I want to be the best in the world, I do them because I want to be the best I can be” & “be kind to yourself… you can only do what you can do”
  • Charlotte Pierce @inkpact reminded us that we’re always marketing ‘human to human’ – not B2B or B2C – and that we need to create moments & experiences that reflect that
  • A super informative talk from Ryan Deiss @DigitalMarketer about 10x marketing (incl. a bunch of book recommendations). Words, copy, storytelling, messaging are essential BUT empathy with your customers (& prospects) is even more so: “those skills can be learned, but empathy can’t”
  • Also enjoyed David Cancel @DCancel & Brian Halligan @brian_halligan‘s fireside chat. They discussed how SaaS marketing nowadays is more about creating a better experience than (necessarily) a better product, how its essential to create delightful end-to-end experiences, and how SaaS businesses need to be “as much an experience disruptor as a technology disruptor” 🎉
