Ideas for Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday and More Important Dates for November

22 Thanksgiving means it’s time to show appreciation. But this year, aim to make it last all year. Start with the obvious things — your family’s good health and work that keeps you engaged. Then start looking outward until you get to those truly insignificant trifles — the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a nostalgic song. The psychologist Martin Seligman suggests a routine of writing two short emails each morning to friends, family or colleagues, thanking them for what they do.

13 Celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of John Montague, the Earl of Sandwich, who invented the sandwich to save time on eating during a gambling binge. Take inspiration: create a potluck schedule to ensure you and your staff are eating well throughout the holiday season.

24 For Small Business Saturday, print a T-shirt emblazoned with the Small Business Saturday logo. Take a picture of yourself wearing it. Post on social media.

25 30 days to go until Christmas. Launch a holiday countdown on the home page of your website. Highlight a “gift of the day.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
