     Kristin's Tip of the Month

Take that extra moment...

This is a great time of the year to remember to take that extra moment, and go one step above and beyond.  This time of year is full of joy, but it can also be full of chaos and added stress.  Taking a minute to smile, or say something nice will make your customers and your loved ones feel well taken care of. That's a win / win all around... and no coal in your stocking from Santa!
