Gift giving is core to the message of Christmas. For unto this world a child was born, a gift for all mankind who believe. If you celebrate this holiday, I want to wish you and yours a blessed Christmas.

The title of the book will remain a secret (for a little longer). The book is about taking your business to new heights—in often unconventional ways.

The section of the book I’m writing now is on the power of giving genuine gifts to others. Others could be your readers, customers, or industry experts.

Gifts show your appreciation or provide no-strings-attached gestures of assistance.
Genuine gifts cannot be wrapped in marketing messages. They must be sent to known recipients. And they should be given joyfully.
Perhaps you can help me with this section.
What is the greatest gift you have ever received? Why was it great? How did it impact you? It can be personal or business-related…
