As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, it is time to pause for a moment and give thanks for all that we have and for the ability to pursue an exciting and rewarding career in the hospitality industry.
Over the past year, I have been reminded of all the value that can be provided to our customers and the rewards we receive from building a successful career as an independent meeting planner. For many of us, we are thankful for our:
- Improved Lifestyle
- Independence to Pursue our Dream
- Financial Freedom
I am also reminded that we cannot achieve success on our own. There are many who have helped each of us throughout our careers and enabled us to reach this point. There are also those who are working with you and helping you today- take the time to let them know you appreciate them and their contribution.
Your challenge for this holiday week is to personally call (not emails, letters or notes) all of these people ‘just to say thanks’. There is a difference between giving thanks and saying thanks and on these calls you are going to say thanks. You will be amazed at the reactions and responses you receive.
I also want to personally thank you for subscribing to my blog and taking the time to read my messages. I am very thankful for your support and encourage you to share any ideas or suggestions in the comments section. Wishing you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving!
