I hope you had the opportunity to enjoy Christmas. I had a great time hanging out with my kids.
Obviously, not everyone celebrates Christmas, but here's a significant takeaway from one of the main aspects of December 25th that you can apply to your speaking business.
I'm sure you're wondering, "Eric, what are you talking about?" Well, I'm referring to the art of giving gifts.
Today, one of the items on my schedule is to send out some thank-you cards and gifts to clients who gave me the opportunity to present to their groups in the last few weeks.
Don't underestimate the power and opportunity in doing this because it's a thoughtful gesture, and very few speakers ever take the time to do this for their clients.
By doing so, you'll stand out in a big way. The gifts can be simple or more elaborate, but it's the thought that counts. A thank-you card can go a long way!
Have an amazing day, and thank you for attending another episode of Eric's Escapades. Be Amazing!

P.S. How important is the idea of saying thank you by giving a gift to a client who has brought you in to speak? Well, let me share how I learned this lesson the hard way. A client who had hired me for several very well received events called me up to express his displeasure because I hadn't said thank you. Interestingly, I never received another call from this person.
