Yes, I’m sending this on Christmas morning.
But don’t read it today.
Instead, relax with family and friends and give yourself a break from the audience and business growth scheming.
Whatever you have planned for today is far from relaxing and you could use something to distract you from all the holiday “fun.”
In that case, I’m happy to help.
Now, on to this week’s ideas…
