"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter." -e.e. cummings 


We've all heard the phrase, "laughter is the best medicine".  Then why aren't we laughing more?  Is it because of all the bad news we hear about every day?  Is it because we're adults and we have to be serious to face the challenges of everyday life?   


In this month's newsletter you'll learn ways to inject humor into the workplace.  While work is a serious business, adding humor can actually increase productivity and improve morale.  


So lighten up and see what happens!

Caps with Embroidery Under $5????   

Caps with Embroidery Under $5????    x300
Yes, it's true! Completed caps can be delivered to you in about 8 days from when you place your order.  You just need to order 48 pieces, and there is NO setup charges for creating your logo! (Total Cost $4.90 * 48 = $235.20 with MI Sales Tax, $249.31)  See the attached flyer for all the details by clicking here.

Why do I need 48 caps you might ask?  Just think about your customers wearing a hat with YOUR logo.  People will perceive this to be an endorsement of your company.  They might see them at the grocery store or at their kid's soccer game.  It could be seen at the ballpark or a concert event.  Think about how many advertising impressions that could add up to for just 5 bucks!  There are some Pay-Per-Click ads that cost more than that to attract ONE CUSTOMER!

Perhaps you'd like to consider more options for a little be more money.  Check out all the details in this flyer highlighting additional caps available for $6.50 apiece by clicking here.  I've put in my order for 48 caps this week, so if you'd like an official "EmbroidMe of Birmingham" cap, let me know and I'll set one aside for you!

Humor in the Workplace 

By Shelley Holmes 

Leaders today face many challenges in striving to meet company goals and keep employees happy. Encouraging teamwork and fostering an empowered work environment are key factors in creating a high performance workplace. Another, often under-utilized tool to creating high performance workplaces is humor.


There are several benefits to keeping things light at the office:


Improve Morale
Injecting a little fun into the workday helps improve morale. One of my clients who leads a call centre occasionally sets up game days where everyone dresses up in a theme and the teams compete against each other to get the most sales. The laughter and joy in their voices bubble over into the phones and their customers pick up on the high morale rolling through the team.  Read More...
