Beat Stress and Depression By Doing This Simple Thing
Is the news, confinement, money problems, fear of the unknown making you depressed? Do this!
Say “Thank You!”
There are a lot of people that I appreciate. Each day I write 1-3 Thank You cards and put them in the out-going mail. I send them to people I think of and for no particular reason other than wanting them to know they matter. Today, I sent one to my dog’s vet. They sent me some meds I needed even though that’s not something they normally do.
Send one to your local super market. They are working hard to keep our food on the table at some personal risk.
Send one to the post office. It can be any post office. They deal with all kinds of people and work in less than state-of-the-art facilities. They handle mail and packages without question. The government doesn’t think the Postal Service deserves extra funding despite losing $2 billion a week. That can’t set their own rates. You don’t even need names. Just say thanks!
Neighbors? Sure! Clients? Vendors? Yes. Prospects?! Sure! I even sent one to a guy who sent me spam about making me a new website for $200. I looked up his site, found the address and sent a card. Why not? It amused me to do it.
And that’s the moral to the story. Do something random and you’ll feel the benefit. Your spirits will lift. Cost? Under $2. Isn’t that worth it to feel better yourself while doing something for other people? I can’t say there will be economic benefit. Don’t do this and think you’ll impress that prospective client so much that they’ll throw a million bucks in your lap. I wouldn’t want a million bucks in my lap anyway.
Drop me a note and let me know how it goes. Feel better. Things will get better and we’re going to make it. You’re going to make it.

Let’s look at how to plan for the next generation of your family to run your business. It’s never too early to make a succession plan and the earlier you start, the more options you have.
How do I get out of my partnership? And, it’s the biggest reason I am always ranting about having a Partnership Agreement. Without a Partnership Agreement, your options are very limited. You accept anything your partner is willing to give you, or you can dissolve the business.
Somebody puts up money with someone who agrees to contribute labor as their contribution to an equal Partnership. Once things are set up, and a lot of money is spent, the other Partner fails to perform, and the troubles begin. I get 2-3 calls like this every week.
Partners take advantage of partners every day and they get away with it. It is the most painful call I get. It sounds like this, “I put all the money I had into starting our business. My partner had bad credit and no money, but he promised to do all the work to get the business going.
