So like all of the other small business owners out there, New Year's Eve is like a magical finish line where, whatever you complete or not, it's a relief. All of my ecommerce clients are humming along and for once Groupon didn't give me any trouble on those installs.
Today, I'm reaching out to my clients via phone to line up project stopping points and get the 2015 work schedule in order. Starting with the Annual Holy Redeemer 3rd Grade Nativity Pageant tomorrow morning, this house will be in full-scale Christmas mode. SDOC is still open ("we never close") but most work will be to address urgent questions only.
I'm thrilled that SDOC's clientele has seen such success in 2014: from improved sales in the brick-and-mortar stores, to increased online sales and outreach, to a winning political campaign.
I'm looking forward to continuing these working relationships into the new year and forging new ones along the way.
To all of our community, from my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, a Heri za Kwanzaa, and Merry Solstice and Yule. Most of all a happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous 2015 for all!
(with Pat Sr, Maggie, Michelle, and Patrick Jr)
(Opportunity knocking for next year: decorate this display for Christmas/Hanukkah. Make it coincide with Light Up Dunwoody at the Farm House.)
