NATURALLY, DANNY SEO is exploring expansion opportunities including international licensing with foreign publishers, a companion television show of the same name hosted by Danny, and unique corporate co-marketing relationships with some of the most prominent national brands.

"They recognize not only our gorgeous photography and inspiring, uplifting and informative stories, but the high quality of the overall magazine. This is the new luxury where wellness, great style and happiness are paramount. I could not be more proud to put my name on this magazine."
NATURALLY, DANNY SEO represents the values of its readers and uses a premium recycled paper from Mohawk Fine Papers. "The choice to use a high grade sustainable paper was easy. The overall experience with the magazine can't be matched," says Seo.
