Who Sends out holiday cards?


Do you keep track of the accomplishments and projects you have worked on during the past year? I realized as I wrote out the title to this blog that I am a few posts away from my 100th blog!  *more about that soon!
It’s nice to look back each month at all you have  gotten done, to get here. It really helps put things into perspective and show you what progress you have made. 
What new people did you meet?
What booking manager, took a chance and gave you a show? or really did you a favor and gave you a Friday or Saturday night spot? 
What act added you to the bill of their show when you were driving through and needed a Wed night gig on your tour? 
What stranger decided to host a house concert or lend out a exhibit space for a you,  or another artist?
  I bet you can think of at least 20 people as you look back over your year.
Now is the perfect time to fill out a holiday card, to just say THANKS.  That person made it possible for you to earn a living doing what you love. Think about what a awesome gift that is!     

In your card don’t ask for anything, just thank them and wish them a happy holiday! A $0.44 thank you is a really nice way to remind them of you, and help keep you in their mind as a “nice person” to do business with in the New Year. And holiday cards come in a box of 20?  How handy!
