By | Holidays

The smile in the eyes of a child, the warm embrace of a stranger, the sense that somehow, no matter what’s happening in the world around us, there is love, there is hope and there is joy. That’s the Spirit of Christmas. The Spirit of Christmas cannot be manufactured, packaged, or sold. It can only be felt in the heart. And perhaps more importantly, it can be shared.

And it’s likely that you don’t really know the guy that works on your car, your pipes, or your air conditioner. In a world that’s becoming ever more impersonal, that rare moment when you make a real connection with a real person seems remarkable. Want…

Roots make a difference. At least that’s what HenkinSchultz partner, Joe Henkin, attributes to his business philosophy – one he shares and passes on to the marketing team at HenkinSchultz. “Part of my family’s culture is to volunteer and help people,” he said. It’s not surprising that helping people solve marketing challenges has become Joe’s life’s work, not only at the company he started with Kirby Schultz in 1991, but in the community. Since the time Joe was a kid, he understood media exposure. His father started KSOO in Sioux Falls in 1959, and by the time Joe was nine,…
