When I was a kid, we had some elegant Christmas decorations. When we got down those decorations, it was a big deal to me. Two, in particular, stood out.
One was a table top decoration of Santa in his sleigh with his eight reindeer. The surface of the sled was like felt.
Another decoration I really liked was a tree topper. Frankly, I’m not sure we ever put it on the tree, but it was a vibrant decoration to me.
Santa’s head was surrounded by a circle of lights which lit up when plugged in. Santa’s beard was soft and long, hung below some of the lights.
Santa has always been a magical fella.
The history of the old saint is worth reading.
One year, when I worked in a bookstore, one of our favorite customers who was an author, wrote a book on Santa Claus. He followed up with two more books on Santa.
Santa is a person who transcends cultures and countries.
We are thankful that he chose to answer my questions.
I am excited today to bring to you Entrepreneur Stories featuring the one, the only, Santa Claus!
It took a lot to get him to do the interview (okay, not really, but just go with me here) and he is extremely busy this time of year as you know. I am thankful he was able to get free long enough to answer my questions.
He truly does have magic as he got his answers back to me faster than any other entrepreneur this year.
We know Santa has a big team and uses it to his advantage (and ours!), but I wanted to get some insight on what makes him so successful.
He has endured as an Entrepreneur for several millennia.
He has, of course, a toy shop where he makes toys and the greatest hot chocolate in the world!
Nevertheless, thank you Santa for answering our questions and giving us insight into your entrepreneurship.
