I read Giftology after interviewing the author on the art of giving gifts. I recently had a chat with John over the phone to catch up, and it made me realize that I had yet to feature this great book in the book club!
The interview in SPI Podcast S†ession 246 definitely packs a punch, and I highly recommend you listen to that—but interestingly enough, John recommends not giving gifts to people who are in your entrepreneur ecosystem during the holidays if you want it to be noticed and make a big impact on the relationship you have.
Whether it’s for employees, colleagues, business friends, or a person you want to grab the attention of, Giftology will help ensure that you know exactly when to give a gift, what gift to give, and how to gift genuinely.
Added bonus: If you meet all those three parameters (the when, the what, the how), that gifting experience can potentially help you in your business and life at the same time too!
Giftology has already played a role in my life, especially when gifting other entrepreneurs in the space I’m in. I highly recommend you check it out too to learn about how to gift the right way—an aspect of the entrepreneur life that may be forgotten or just not emphasized enough.
The last takeaway I’ll share, which may be pretty common sense, but it’s an important reminder: Your gift is really, mostly about the thought and the timing more than the amount of money you spend or how many gifts you give.
Sound good? Ready for a fruitful gifting season? You got this!
