Just saying Happy New Years sounds so obligatory… so insincere.
At the same time I really, truly, want to wish you a Happy, prosperous, healthy New Year. So Happy New Year!
It’s so exciting to think about investing all that we’ve learned over the past year, and in all of our prior years, into this new year… into 2019.
2019 also marks some changes at The Santa Claus Conservatory. I have changed the membership model from annual to 12 months. So regardless of when you join your membership will run for 12 months.
There’s also been a slight increase in the membership fees and I’ve added a brand new Bronze level that’s only $27. Go to The Santa Claus Conservatory dot com to see what’s included at the various membership levels.
Also, renewing members can receive a discount if they renew by January 16th… log in to your membership hub to renew at the discounted rate.
This is a strange time of the year for us Santas & Mrs. Clauses… we just wrapped up our season… we’ve had some time to recover and think a bit… we might feel a bit sad to see the season go… at the same time we’re excited about 2019, and if you’re like me, you want to do what you can to make 2019 EVEN BETTER than 2018 or 2017 or any prior years.
Even though I had a terrific 2018 I don’t want a repeat of 2018 in 2019… I want this year to be even better, I want it to bring new experiences…
I love the fact that I shot a commercial in Japan last year. I love that I had a movie that I was in, This Was Our Christmas, come out in 2018.
I love that I was able to be Santa for nearly 300 adults with developmental disabilities… and that I spent time with the Homeless at the Midnight Mission on Skid Row in Los Angeles and with very sick children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
I love that I was doing Santa stuff from July through Christmas. I feel incredibly blessed to have had the the 2018 I had.
Do you feel the same way? Would you like 2019 to be even better than in 2018?
One way we can all do that is to learn from one another… to help with that I’ll be hosting our “2018 Santa & Mrs. Claus Debrief” session on Thursday, January 3rd. This session is FREE session sponsored by The Santa Claus Conservatory and available to Santas & Mrs. Clauses worldwide.
Our 9 Core Sessions will be on Wednesdays this year… the first 3 Wednesday’s of February, March & April.
Lastly, I just want to say I’m so happy for you. I’ve received over 100 emails, text & facebook messages sharing experiences of being in parades, working in malls & retail outlets, doing home & business parties… and several from Santas who did commercials, TV & movie work. These messages thanked me and the Conservatory… but it’s me that owes you the thanks.
I thank you for being a part of this community. I feel so good knowing that so many of you are learning things that are helping you have more fun & have a greater impact as Santas & Mrs. Clauses.
I know many of you mentioned The Santa Claus Conservatory in interviews with local & national media… THANK YOU FOR THAT… the Wall Street Journal, VOX & Fox Business all interviewed me about the Conservatory in 2018… as did several local news outlets.
Let’s make 2019 even more special. Let’s do all we can do to build, nurture and help keep the SPIRIT of Christmas and the SPIRIT, the thoughtfulness, the generosity, the kindness, the jolliness of Santa & Mrs. Claus alive and flourishing ALL YEAR LONG.
God Bless you and all whose lives you touch.
