All I want for Christmas is:

Ornaments. I love it when my clients win awards: industry awards, best company to work for awards, fastest-growing company awards, healthiest company awards. They make my clients look good and gives me something to promote to the media.

Largesse from the Grinch. A lot of my customers are tech startups, and much of their funding comes from well-off investors that have all the money in the world and, despite their natural inclination to horde wealth like the Grinch who stole Christmas, decide to invest in promising technologies and aspiring entrepreneurs. So my wish for 2015 is that more Grinches open up their wallets to invest, whether in tech, fashion, food or some other new industry yet to be launched.

Peace on Earth. Why not aim high? Yes, peace on Earth is a lofty goal, but it’s a worthwhile goal and definitely worth adding to any Christmas wish list.
