Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Thank You For Your Business

I got off the plane last week and the flight attendant said, "Thank you for your business."

It's nice to be thanked and I'm glad this airline appreciates customers in this way. You may have a similar practice at your store or organization.

But gratitude can't be merely a transaction, used when the exchange of money for services or products happens. 

You can thank people for other things, too. You can thank people for their:

  • Honesty
  • Insight
  • Support
  • Humor
  • Encouragement
  • Patience
  • Work
  • Sacrifice
