NEW YORK, (July 3, 2020) – Shelley Tanner, SanovaWorks CEO/President
Communicating with a personal handwritten note or letter is becoming a thing of the past. Fast paced, emoji packed, short text and acronym driven digital communications are the current trends in getting your message out. I’m all for staying current and riding the waves of progress; however, I believe that a personal touch goes a long way.
Personal and handwritten or unique one of a kind cards
Either a personal handwritten note with a thoughtful message or a one-of-a-kind card, conveys a wish to cultivate a deeper more meaningful relationship. There are certain types of communications we all know require a more personal touch. Invitations to special events, birthdays, anniversaries, graduation wishes, condolences and messages of sympathy, all require a personal message, from the giver to the receiver. The time and effort taken, in these particular types of communications are always self-evident.
In my leadership role at SanovaWorks, I am consistently impressed with short meaningful communications from peers, team members, interviewees, and others that I interact with. When they follow up on a meeting, conversation, or interview, with a personal communication that recalls something we spoke of, a promise to reconnect, or just a simple note to check in and say” hi, how are things?”, I experience the value in cultivating that relationship.
Meet Erika Burnett, CEO & Creative Designer A Single Suggestion
A Philadelphia entrepreneur, Erika is the CEO and Creative Designer at A Single Suggestion. Erika creates handcrafted cards for people who love to make others feel special.
“A couple years into running the business, I found out that creating cards was relative to my passion for making others feel special and giving their heart something to remember. In other words, I want others to feel, like I feel when someone does something special for me.” – Erika Burnett
Erika’s mission “to rekindle person-to-person intimacy through handwritten notes, one card at a time” is a true inspiration, especially considering the current state of affairs, the need for social distancing and wearing masks. We may need to adjust our styles of communicating now and in the future, but one constant is that the impact of a personal message or note is immeasurable. It’s actually a gift that keeps on giving. Every time you write a sincere, personal communication, in whatever medium you choose, it’s guaranteed to have a positive impact on the receiver.
