Introducing Hey Seery

Introducing Hey Seery

598 300 Tom Seery

Just like you, I am busy. 

Relentlessly busy. 

Because of this, we probably share an attraction to tools that make us more productive, like the Apple Watch strapped to my wrist each and every day: there’s not a missed step, unaccounted for calorie burn, or untracked heartbeat in my life. 

And when it comes to staying informed, I seek out meta insights from data, news, and trends—that means not just the information itself, but perspective on what that information means.

I’d love to have you join me as I uncover those types of insights in a new content series called Hey Seery where I’ll openly share my pursuit of this higher perspective about 1) the aesthetics industry, 2) external factors that affect it, and 3) trends that we need to think about as we make business decisions. I’ll interview industry insiders, and I’ll also venture far outside of the echo chamber to uncover nuggets that are hard to find, yet important to our businesses and lives. To achieve this with Hey Seery, I will be more of a curator than an author.

The Netflix docuseries Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates shares that he occasionally takes “think weeks,” time when he goes to a cabin in the woods to read and ponder. With Hey Seery, I want you to indulge in a few “think minutes.”

Excited to get this started.
