My tough love approach (heavy on the love) focuses on bringing order to chaos, and creating solid (and straightforward) strategic plans. I take surveys for fun, never met a process I didn’t like, and am a big believer in personal growth as a keystone to business growth.
With the holidays coming and small business office budgets shrinking, gifts need to be low cost but still be thoughtful enough to show you care. Here are the best of the best, drawn from a list offered up recently by Business News Daily that we’ve edited to be alcohol-free and perfect for your next office Secret Santa.
5 – Ticket stub diary – Perfect for the sports or film enthusiast, this is a great way to take something they usually throw away, ticket stubs, and turn them into trophies. There’s space to preserve the stubs, write comments, and the best part is that it’s completely made of recycled paper. You can find it on UncommonGoods.com. ($12)
4 – Dinosaur desk organizer – Thanks in part to the recent release of Jurassic World, dinosaurs are trendy again. This dino desk organizer will help organize memos with a spring-loaded mouth, and also doubles as a pen holder, and comes with a notepad that fits into a rear slot. You can find it on Amazon. ($11)
3 – Smartphone Micro Stand – If you’ve ever wanted to play music from your phone or watch a few videos, you know how awkward holding it can get.
