It’s tough to be cheerful this morning, as this is written on the 27th just as the news of the Bhutto assassination is hitting the US. What an awful, senseless tragedy.
Up ‘til now, we had been in quite a good holiday season spirit here in the New York office, coming off a very successful sales period. I’m certain that we’ve made a lot of folks very happy during this time of year. There have been some wonderful books made, most all of them clearly having a special meaning and carrying special memories for the creators and their recipients.
Getting all the orders out the door was not so easy, but such is the price of success, and our Customer Service team did an amazing job. I’m very proud of them.
So, how do we top this in 2008? Sustaining growth is never easy, but the one thing any manager, and any organization can do is to learn from mistakes. As a young company, taking risks every day, we have no shortage of learning opportunities, therefore; it’s an integral part of this game.
I resolve to take advantage of these opportunities. I promise! Right after the Bowl Games…
Happy New Year, everyone!
