Tis the season to be jolly. Or not.
The last two weeks of the year is either a time of joy and celebration, or a time of stress and regret. You either want this time to last forever, or you can’t wait for it to be over.
If you love this time of year, Mazel Tov. Savor every moment. Give thanks for your blessings. Enjoy the big meal. Save me a hunk of pie.
If this isn’t your favorite time of year, or even if it is, recognize that lots of people are stressed out right now. They have too much to do. They may be spending money they don’t have. They may be worried about their future.
You can help.
You can be a ray of sunshine in their lives and make them glad they know you.
Ask yourself, “how can I make this a better time for my clients?
You might send them a funny video, like last year’s Christmas Jammies.
How about taking $100 off of their bill and telling them to have a nice dinner on you?
Or maybe give them a call, yes a phone call, and tell them how much you appreciate them.
Surprise and delight them. Show them you care.
If your clients are happy right now, hearing from you is going to make them even happier. If they’re having a rough time right now, your message or gift could be just what they need to realize that everything is going to be okay.
But here’s the thing. When you make other people’s lives better, you make yours better, too.
