After a round of layoffs from media company Vox, Racked’s now-former shopping director Tiffany Yannetta found herself out of a job. With her severance package as a cushion, she embarked on full-time freelance work that includes writing copy for Italian shoe brand M.Gemi and stories for New York magazine and GQ, among other publications. Yannetta sat down with She Spends to share her best practices for running your own business, why being nice is important and the email habit she’s trying to break.
Sitting down to talk with Racked senior editor Alanna Okun is fun. She’s bubbly and kind, and she instantly puts you at ease.
It’s not hard to imagine, then, Okun talking with readers of the shopping news website about a notoriously difficult subject — money — given her disposition.
