Happy Thanksgiving! This is a wonderful week for gratitude, time with family and friends and of course, the start of the true holiday craziness.
There is so much going on right now that it’s easy to put business on the back burner. Don’t do it!
Today I’m sharing with you my secret for having it all during the holidays. Time to enjoy all of the festivities, time with your family and time to connect with your clients to strengthen your relationships and set you up for business success in the coming year.
Here’s how you do it:
There are so many fun things going on right now: tree lightings, light displays, sledding, holiday plays and concerts. Great things that don’t cost a lot and don’t require any effort to set up on your part. Pick 4 fun activities that you would like to do this season and put them on your calendar right now. Aim for one a week. We are going sledding this weekend and I can’t wait to play in the snow with the boys!
2 days before the event call 3-5 clients and invite them to go with you. Yes, it’s spur of the moment, but that’s part of what makes it so fun. People’s schedules are already so full that making a big ordeal about the scheduling will turn a lot of people off and stress them out. Just call them and say “hey, it’s last minute, but we are going sledding this weekend and wanted to know if you would like to join us.” People love getting inviations to do things just for the fun of it.
In a perfect world they can make it and you get to have fun enjoying the holidays with your family and get some client bonding time in as well. Even if they can’t make it, they will appreciate that you thought of them and it will give you a chance to wish them a happy holiday in a more meaningful way.
The other side benefit of doing this is that you will actually get to enjoy the holidays. There have been so many years where the season went by in a blur and I didn’t do anything to actually have fun and enjoy it. This makes having fun a priority and gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to balancing client time and family time.
So there you have it. My secret for enjoying the holidays and having it all. It’s like throwing a series of client parties that you don’t have to pay for or organize. How perfect!
