-How to decide whether to work or not work over the holidays
-How to take a real vacation without losing clients
-How to use the holidays to your advantage, especially if you’re actively looking for work
-How to use post-holiday marketing techniques to remind clients you’re back in the office in January

  1. I loved this episode. It has loads of helpful tips. I was interested to hear that you all seem to spend quite a large sum of money on just a few holiday gifts whereas I tend to buy smaller gifts for about 20-25 clients for Christmas. The result being that I only get thanks from a few of them which is kind of depressing 😀 I think I’m going to try your way this year. Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving despite the situation Corinne! Take care
