Episode 64: The Power of a Thank You

Nov 22, 2021

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. I only have to worry about cooking a meal and not making a Halloween costume or buying gifts. This holiday, I can set the table and invite people near and dear to come and celebrate being thankful. Today’s episode is about just that, the power of Thank You. I’ll share some great tips on what helped me and why there is so much power in a handwritten thank you. 

Did you know that you can text me? Yep, you can text me directly and ask me all your questions! It will be me, and I’ll probably even voice message you back. Send your texts to 205-964-5337.

This episode is short and sweet, like the pecan pie you’ll be eating this week, so be sure to tune in. I share all the tips for making a huge impact in a small way, and I’ll even share my experience. You’re not going to want to miss this! 

“I was so appreciative of people who were willing to let me talk about this work of mine, that I just wanted to say thank you.” – Mary R Snyder.
