Everything I know about business I could have learned from playing Santa: 1) you can make it look simple but don’t fool yourself, being Santa requires a lot of planning; 2) it’s hard work and you have to constantly resist the temptation to get selfish, such as when someone pulls a fast one on you like pulling your beard, and 3) have your elevator pitches down – “Ok, I’m not the real Santa. He couldn’t come, but it’s a secret – don’t tell the other kids.”
To my staffing customers I want to thank you for your business and trust this last year. For our employees thanks for all the incredible hard work that went into creating new products and success for our clients. And for everyone out there involved in the TempWorks community, God bless – I wish you a Merry Christmas, and twice the sales and profits and success in 2009!
