We've searched far and wide to bring you a kaleidoscope of inspirational stories, new ideas and emerging opportunities for small businesses all over the world. In Next, we've taken a look at the new dating-app ecosystem, and some of the moves made by both major and more niche players to offer some predictions for the future of online dating. We also explore the brands getting into the new-age spirituality arena, and the communities being built around practices like crystal collecting, astrology and tarot reading.
In Briefings, we investigate how TikTok is shaking up the publishing game, with users helping to create bestsellers, revive classics and champion niche genres. Whether it's a trend that will last remains to be seen. We also dig into the new players in the natural wine game who are giving more established producers a run for their money, and explore how family businesses are surviving in modern times.
Are you thinking about creating additional revenue streams for your business? In Workshop, we discuss how you can make a passive income by renting out assets you already own. And when it comes to creating hype, we take a look at how two different businesses managed to create a significant waitlist for their products before launch.
