Birthday Cards for a Busy Business

by Henry L. on February 28, 2013

I own a relatively small business that demands a lot of my time, as well as the time of my employees. As a way of thanking my dedicated staff, I give each of them a card on their birthday with a small message saying how much I appreciate them. With the limited amount of spare […]


Christmas Cards – A Tradition That Transcends Time

by Henry L. on February 25, 2013

Christmas cards are, of course, a great way to catch up with friends in a personal way. When I was younger I always meant to send out a year in review, touching base with the people who meant so much to me over the years, but I was always too busy. It’s a sad fact […]

Many of my friends dread going to work on their birthdays – I even had one friend quit her job because her boss wouldn’t give her the day off! So I suppose I count myself lucky that I don’t mind coming into work on my birthday, and it’s my company’s fault. At my office we […]
