Catching up with posting some recent stories, I tackled last-minute Christmas shopping and offered seven viable options for procrastinators last month.
I remember a few years ago, there was a huge push by online retailers to offer overnight shipping for gifts ordered on the day before Christmas Eve. Some even promised delivery on Christmas Day. For some reason, the high-end retailer Ashford comes to mind (and, wow, they are still around somewhat). This past holiday, it was Amazon making the big promise of same-day delivery for orders made on Christmas Eve.
While it’s now almost mid-January, I’m posting a link to my story on TheStreet.com since this blog so far serves as more of a collection of my work. If you want to prepare yourself for procrastination next holiday, take a look:
