Its dark out. Frost covers the cars already. Its going to take everything you’ve learned as a leader to make it through this night successfully. The challenge is welcomed. Masses of people begin to gather outside your store as you complete your last minute prep. Staring in at you their breath can be seen on your windows. You’re not intimidated though. You strategize how to keep your employees motivated throughout the long night. You open your does and unlock the madness.
Hope everyone working retail out there makes the most of their night. Its going to be a long one for me. 18 hours, but I’ll make it fun.
