“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” – Luke 2:8-14
We hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are taking some time to unwind from the year over the next couple weeks. We will be back in January.
Stuff we wrote this past past week:
On Friday, Practically Social was a little festive and a little playful. Dogs dressed up for the holidays and a little history of the Coca-Cola polar bear ads – what more could you ask for to kick off your holiday weekend?
Stuff we liked this week:
First, we all know that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays. However, we also know that they are known for their generosity and amazing customer service. So, it should come as no surprise that when a need arose, they broke their biggest rule.
Second, you don’t have to wonder anymore – Apple admitted that your iPhone battery does not perform as well the older your phone gets, but they also claim the reasoning behind why this is may not be as nefarious as you thought.
Third, A Charlie Brown Christmas is pretty much a holiday staple in millions of American homes. The legacy that Schulz created with his characters has also brought one of the most powerful bible passages to us year after year. (The same passage in the introduction if you’re interested).
Fourth, hoping to do some reading over the holidays? Here are the top 10 books of 2017 according to pretty much everyone.
Fifth, I hope your Christmas is as rocking as this one.
How can we help you?
Well, so that’s a start to our weekend and yours as well. During the week, we’re primarily going to write about the five major levels of The First Order of Business that is covered in our new book, Brand Your Own Business, and we’ll share our best tips on management, marketing, and motivation.
In addition, we take requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s a topic you’d like us to tackle.
Thanks for your time! Enjoy your weekend!
