“Black Friday”

Personally, I hate the term "black Friday".  It seems like such a somber name for the day that, unofficially at least, begins the brightest, happiest, and busiest time of the year.  While it is the day that's supposed to mark the change from red ink to black ink on your P & L, it's really much more than that.

Hopefully this day finds you too busy to read a lengthy post so I'll just say that, as busy as it may get, take care of yourself and your staff over the next few weeks.  Consider little things like catering lunch on Saturdays, having a supply of Tums, Advil or Tylenol, Band-Aids, and other things that will make the season a little less stressful.

And, for crying out loud, have fun.  While it's an important time for your bottom line, don't lose sight of the reason for the season, and don't stress yourself to the point that you can't enjoy everything it has to offer.

Take a deep breath.  Do a couple of deep knee bends.  And, get back to work!
