The StartupNation Blog Trends, tips and real-life anecdotes from industry experts

When was the last time you said this 6-letter word?

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and that means we are getting ready for the upcoming holidays.

Things will get hectic with year-end deadlines, sales and meetings… not to mention all of the activities you have planned with family and friends.

But while all of this is going on, don’t forget this little word that can mean a lot to your success in all that you do… THANKS.

- Send special notes to your customers, business associates, mail carriers, and more.

And by special, I’m not talking about e-mails. Take the time to pick out a card, handwrite a note and send it via snail mail. The recipient will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

- Do something unique.

Out of the blue, surprise your team members with bagels, a special lunch or other treat.

By giving them something out of the ordinary, you’ll provide a nice break and let them know you appreciate their hard work.

- Try to be thankful all season.

When things get stressful, think of all the things you are thankful for. Soon, your everyday problems won’t seem so bad.

Just say “Thank you!”

It may seem simple, but these small words can change a lot. Not only do they let others know you appreciate them, but they can turn a bad day around. Give it a try today.

And with that, I’d like to say have a great Thanksgiving, and thanks for reading this blog!
