The link between better business and happiness

There is a common myth that personal happiness and business success are at odds with each, but in reality the people most successful at business take care of their personal lives. Happiness isn’t a destination, it’s a life journey, and the people most successful at business recognize this.

Thriving business people know that true success starts with a good attitude.

Having trouble bringing  joy into your workplace?

Try these steps below.

  1. Use personal goals to get ahead in business-setting weekly goals of trying a new food or reading a new books exposes you to new clients and gives you something memorable to discuss in meetings
  2. New activities and  hobbies can both reduce stress and make you a more well rounded person, someone clients look forward to meeting
  3. Recognize that success goes up and down, rather than being linear. Stressing less over disappoints will lead to more longer term successes.
  4. Everyday, count the things which you are grateful for. A appreciative attitude will increase your energy and drive.

Smile more, be happy, and succeed!

Make Your Best Impression This Holiday Season

IT’S THE GIVING SEASON…but what about all year long?

Your business can always benefit from gift giving all year long.  Promotional gifts generate good will at the same time that they provide advertising. Clients and customers remember your company every time they drink coffee from their travel mug or use the branded pen you gave them.

Giving gifts to employees is good business too, because this is an extra way of telling them that you value the hard work they have put in. Little morale boosters can make a difference in the overall workplace attitude, and the occasional gift lets your team know you couldn’t do it without them. Giving something useful like an umbrella or a lunch box means your employees bring your gift with them to work everyday, and remember your goodwill in giving it to them.

Take into consideration the personality of the receiver when it comes to giving client gifts.  Do they like to take notes by hand?   If so, would they appreciate a nice journal more than a padfolio?  Would a set of wine glasses be appreciated or are they a chocolate fan?

Fall Back Into A Healthy Work Schedule

September is here, kids are back to school, summer vacations are complete, and companies are no longer operating on a holiday schedule. It can be difficult to accept the change when those first leaves begin to hit the ground, so here are some tips to help you transition into a happier, healthier fall season, plus some on trend products that you can offer your clients to help them stay on track for the new season.

Don’t Be Late.

If you have children, fall means back to school and school drop off mornings. Even if you don’t have children, fall means adjusting your commute to school bus schedules.

Plan Your Schedule. 

Days are getting shorter, & it is important in the last few weeks of summer to think ahead regarding your new fall schedule. Get to bed earlier, finish up your fall shopping lists, and plan your commute and car pool schedule.

Take Vitamins. 

With shorter days and the end of beach season comes less sunshine which means less Vitamin D, essential for healthy bones. Stock up on supplements, and increase your intake of Vitamin D rich foods such as tuna, mackerel, and salmon.  and get outside when you can! A lunchtime stroll is the perfect way to squeeze in some autumn sunshine, even as it starts getting dark before you leave the office.

The relaxed vibe of summer usually leaves some extra clutter lying around. While you start thinking about raking leaves at home, don’t neglect your desk-the change of a season is a great time for some office reorganization.

Stay Active. 

Shorter days can make it tempting to stay inside. Fight the temptation by joining a gym, or signing up for a yoga class. Make getting up early for a run part of your new fall schedule. Buy yourself some stylish cool weather active wear to make continuing to exercise into the fall months still appealing.

Think Spring!

Spring is just around the corner, and with a new season comes a fresh new energy to bring to your marketing approach.  Every business starts out with the best of intentions and lofty resolutions at the beginning of the year.  But by March, many of those aspirations have begun to fade.

Spring has become synonymous with spring cleaning and a fresh start.  It has become the go-to season for millions to deep clean homes, get rid of unnecessary clutter, and look at things from a different perspective.

Let the new season inspire you!

This is a great time to get rid of all the products and services that haven’t been as profitable as you’d like, and to put your brand on something new.  Your messaging should match the season with vibrant colors and a theme of renewal and revitalization.  Focus on a new look for your website, a new feature, perhaps a new product offering to go along with the spirit of renewal.

There are some great holidays in the Spring that are perfect for marketing opportunities.   Create a marketing effort related to the annual celebration of Earth Day.  Go local and sponsor a road cleanup project or a tree planting event, and invite the community to join in. The week of Mothers Day: send flowers or a card to your clients who are mothers.
