All of the businesses, people, products and services covered in the emails (which are then archived on the website) are chosen based solely on their quality and merit. If something does not meet Suzanne’s high standards, it just isn’t included. We provide honest, straight-forward opinion and information – why provide anything else?
Today there is no advertising associated with the service. In the future, any advertisement will be clearly labelled as such, and no advertiser or sponsor can ever have any influence over the independence of our editorial process. This strict policy will always ensure that our little team provides only stellar recommendations.
What’s Worth It is a very select collection of places to stay, travel-oriented experiences, lifestyle products & services. Suzanne chooses very carefully from her personal experiences and that of her trusted friends what is included in its collection. The opinion of Suzanne’s team and her endorsement cannot be bought. The website collection is 100% editorial and cannot be paid for. Companies in our collection are able to pay What’s Worth It a nominal administration fee to be sent to our e-database of wealthy consumers and be part of other aspects of our unique direct marketing platform. It is Suzanne’s promise and pledge to you, our readers, that never-ever is anything part of our collection which is not a place, product or service that she knows to be top-notch and therefore worth your time & money.
Note from Suzanne
I continue to be amazed by the multitude of “lifestyle” content that exists, and disappointed by most magazines, websites and newspapers who write glowing editorials of their advertisers’ products and services. What’s Worth It cuts through the noise and delivers honest, highly personal and opinionated reviews of places to stay – to consumers who seek high quality. We also let you know about special or worthwhile products and services. Quality does not always mean expensive. Some of what I publish is inexpensive or very fairly/competitively priced; many of the Places to Stay are in the upper price tier but merit their rates over other choices
Suzanne’s Files, my most recent successful entrepreneurial venture, was sold in January 2010 to a website and service in the hospitality space. We had enjoyed a great, loyal following since launch in 2006 with over 65,000 subscribers. You can see most of the original collection on: www.spire.com (NB: I no longer have anything to do with the company. Therefore, I do not control or influence its editorial, branding, advertisers or partners.)
What’s Worth It is a focused, simplistic concept, offering valuable insight to consumers who are quality seekers. Being that we all have so little time and so many choices, I’m always focused on… What’s Worth It! And share each week 1-2 finds via email pinpointing for you exactly why a particular place or thing is worth it.
I hope you’ll enjoy What’s Worth it and find it truly useful!
