Happy New Year and Thank You…

Yesterday was my last day in the office for this year. I decided to spend some extra time with my family, so we’re spending the weekend on the Florida Gulf Coast for a little rest and relaxation to celebrate the New Year. We’re headed to the Ringling Circus Museum later today, so I wanted to type this quick message to you before the day gets away from me.

I simply want to sincerely wish you a Happy New Year and a relaxing holiday weekend. You deserve it.

It’s been one heck of a year, and I want you to know that the work you put into your business matters. It’s important. YOU’RE important. Your business fuels your personal economy, provides value to others, and maybe even employs people.

YOU are the backbone of our economy, working hard to keep the lights on day-in and day-out, year-in and year-out.

YOU are the one making it happen, making sure things get done right.

You don’t hear this enough from everyone else, so hear it from me: THANK YOU.

The Mercantile Capital Corporation Family is thankful for the small business owners we’ve worked with this past year, the small business advisors who’ve introduced us to their clients, and everyone who’s read this blog or opened an email from us. We truly appreciate the opportunity to interact with you and hopefully provide some valuable help when it comes to smarter commercial real estate financing.

Here’s to a wonderfully Happy New Year. See you in 2012!

Dedicated to Your Continued Success,

Chris

P.S. Remember the “moving sale” we had last month? Well, we were able to sell nearly every bit of miscellaneous marketing paraphernalia in our storage room, and we put the proceeds toward our annual holiday giving fund. Instead of sending corporate holiday cards or gifts, our tradition is to make a donation (corporately and individually) to a worthy charitable cause. This year, with the money raised by our moving sale and additional contributions from members of our Mercantile Family, we made a sizeable four-figure donation to Families in Transition. This program was established in 2003 to serve the educational needs of children in the Seminole County (Florida) school system who are considered homeless. We hope that our contribution to Families in Transition helps give these students a “hand-up” — providing an adequate educational experience that will set them up for future success (maybe even an adventure in entrepreneurship).

P.P.S. If you know someone who’s worked hard this year and could use a little encouragement as we head into 2012, please share this with them. We need all the positive-thinking, hard-working entrepreneurs we can get!
