Happy Holidays?

David SpearsHere we are right in the middle of the holiday season. During the time in and around Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, there might be a “lull” of activity for most businesses. Frankly, that is my favorite time of year. There is NO traffic, work is not quite as busy and it’s just plain quiet with less people inside the office.

But other folks might not be feeling quite as nostalgic during this time of year. They may be dealing with end of year reports, kids at home from school, and in-laws that just can’t quite get the hint that it’s time for them to go home! With that in mind, I thought perhaps this might be a good time to review some previous tips on how to handle the holiday season.
