I think I can vouch for many of the small business owners when I say that the holidays can be so confusing and stressful. Do I offer discounts? Do I get gifts for my clients? Do I stock up on retail? Do I do an open house? Will anyone show up? UGH!!! We want it to be special, we want you to include us in your gift giving but we also want you to treat yourself to a little r&r.
I always enter the holidays with gusto. I LOVE the holidays. I may not always express that love and I may join in the bah humbug attitude now and then but at my core, I love it.
