Before you buy that client holiday gift…

Holiday Gift NosHanukkah is next week. Christmas is 34 days away. Have you purchased client holiday gifts yet? This comes from YDST’s Susan Neuhalfen: I was sitting with a client one holiday season when an outside sales person came in with a Christmas present for the client – a bottle of liquor.  The client was a recovering alcoholic and had been sober about 5 years.  I remember thinking how not only did that guy not know his client, that gift could have been downright dangerous to the client. If a holiday gift is deemed necessary for a client (or it is just something you really want to do), a little more client research would be a good idea.
