A recent National Retail Federation (NRF) consumer spending survey estimated that the average shopper will spend slightly less than $750 this year on holiday gifts, décor, greeting cards and more. The Same survey also indicates that consumers will increasingly comparative shop by actively search for sales and travel less for purchases using on-line services for more purchases, as a means of reducing holiday expenses, without losing the joy or festivities of the season. Based upon this ‘financial news’ we know that you need to find some downright cheap alternatives for your business associates, so here are a few ideas for your accounting and ProAdvisor friends that will cost you nothing but can potentially make their Holiday a smashing success:
- Sign-up your accounting friends for their own 100% totally free subscription to the Intuitive Accountant Newsletter.
- Forward a colleague the link for early registration at the 2014 Scaling New Heights Conference.
- Let these friends and colleagues know that if they get into the holiday season by accepting and acting upon # 1 and # 2 above, that Santa will especially be good to them on December 25th.
- Be aware that if you fail to do # 1 and # 2 above, that NaNu the Grinch will be sneaking into your house and stealing all your presents from under your tree and you will not so much as end up with a tiny lump of coal on December 25th.
And a Ho, Ho, Ho…..
