Who Can You Help Today?

Probably the best gift you can give to someone is to help them while expecting nothing in return.

The Holiday season is in full swing. Can you feel it? By now, we all have been bombarded with ad after ad for one sale after another offering 50 percent off this and buy one get one free of that.

Pretty soon, all the gifts will be wrapped and it will be time to finally relax and start to give thanks for the season.

Here's a thought though. What about taking a few minutes today or tomorrow to reach out to someone and see how you might be able to help them. I promise that this will most likely not cost you anything. Why not pick up the phone and call a friend or family member and ask them if there is any thing you can do for them.

Maybe it is a neighbor that needs a hand with some babysitting so they can finish up that holiday shopping and not have to pay a babysitter. How about that co-worker that you overhear every day on the phone telling others about how stressed they are this year finding the right gift for that special someone. Why not offer a hand in helping them?

Better yet, what about helping a person or persons that you know that may be out of work right now. Why not pick up the phone and find out what type of job they are looking for and see if you can help. I can almost guarantee that you know someone who knows someone that needs a employee that cannot seem to find the right fit and you might have a solution to their problem.

Probably the best gift you can give to someone is to help them while expecting nothing in return. If you are that person that is in need of some help finding work, email me and I will see what I can do to help. Let me know what type of work you are looking for and let me see what I can do. You never know what can happen if you simply ask.

Happy Holidays and let me know how I can help you today.
