Thanksgiving is always an appropriate time to give thanks for all our blessings.
In our hectic schedule; trying to find time for our business, struggle with a difficult and volatile economy, and trying to find quality time with our families, we sometime take for granted the many gifts and opportunities that are available to us.
Personally I want to thank all my colleagues for the trust and support you have shown me throughout the year. I want to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.
It is my sincere hope that the following tips will make this Thanksgiving Holiday a very special holiday for you and your family:
Nine Tips on Giving Thanks:

Sadly many college graduates are unemployed; a good hairdresser will never be out of a job. Our profession allows us to control our own destiny at much lower costs. A hairdressing career can be a short cut to financial independence,provided you know what it takes and have what it takes to succeed.

Many people in other countries are fighting and dying to gain their freedom and democracy that we often take for granted. In America you control your own success or failure. Nobody can stop you from learning and growing. Our country allows you the opportunity to make a better life for you and yourself family. Your biggest obstacle to your own success and happiness will probably be you.
Let Us Be Thankful To Our Customers –— our customers have many choices on how and where they will spend their hard earned money. Our customers represent our livelihoods, by giving us an opportunity to enrich their lives ‘and provide us with an opportunity to earn a living.

Let us give thanks for their service and sacrifices of their families, so that we may enjoy time with our family on Thanksgiving Day.
