Nobody likes going back to work after the holidays.
The long cold commutes, with no money and no prospect of another break on the horizon, is enough to bring out the Grinch in anyone.
So, instead of stealing somebody else’s Christmas, why not make that return to work a little bit more palatable?
Here’s my Christmas Gift Guide for Professionals…
