The 8 day Hanukkah Celebration ends Sunday night, and there still is time to select gifts!  Our family celebrates with little gifts each night.  After lighting the candles, we hide a little present and then have fun in the hunt.  You’re either “hot or cold” searching for it.  The gift could be a new toothbrush, a loofa scrub, a bottle of beer, even boxer shorts. The dogs always get a gift too.

Today its the little gifts that count too. Here is what we have for you at Olive Connection...

We had an inspiring morning this week at Emerson College hearing the case study results from 4 teams of marketing students in Professor Jim Rowean’s class.  They have been working on this project since the semester started and gave the most professional presentations.

This team nailed it and will get the A +

This team nailed it and will get the A +

They analyzed the macro and micro market, the target audience, presented marketing plans for all channels with priorities and graphics. Suggested a calendar for the months ahead and point of view to not be predictable and add value, with brand identity far reaching past our small store. Each team did a great job and we will use many of their suggestions.  We have work to do in 2016 for sure…but these kids were awesome!  I want to follow their career paths…

Still time for personalized gifts and basket presentation

Working like mad dogs for the next couple of weeks…laughing because we reverted back to the crock pot like days of old. At least it is new stainless and not old avocado.

whatever is in the frig gets thrown in and yet comes out yummy

whatever is in the frig gets thrown in and yet comes out delicious-chicken, potatoes, onions, peppers, spices and 2 cans of roasted tomatoes…whatever…
