Are you still reeling from the activity of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the continuing blitz of email ads extending the sales into Cyber Week?
Wow! You know it’s coming, but some years when it hits, it just slams into you!
It’s definitely ‘the holidays’.
There are some people who do take a different approach and try their best not to get lost in the swamp of ads coming at them, perhaps even step away from the computer more than usual.
But, when you are a mystery shopper, you cannot just ignore your email.
There is work to be done!
As you start to feel the crunch of ‘getting it all done’ for the season, to make sure to double check your schedule and which shops you have committed to complete.
Your schedulers, account managers and editors are feeling the crunch just as you are – and they have the added pressure of clients who need reports as the year wraps up.
Let’s all work together to make December as easy, and successful, as possible for everyone.
Embrace the Joy
In addition to managing your mystery shopping business for success through the season, we encourage you to manage your time for personal achievement as well.
We recognize this season is not a happy one for everyone, but there are small ways to embrace joy in ways that are meaningful to you.
Take a few moments each day to:
- Reflect on what the season means to you – and honor that your perfect holiday may not look like other celebrations.
- Connect with people who lighten your life and bring joy to your day
- Bring value to every interaction in stores, on line and in your home
Putting a smile on your face and a good intent in your heart will make every encounter, even one that is ‘work’, a situation where you can embrace the joy!
