Subscribers putting BGC
tips into action
Have you been inspired by a gift idea or tip shared in the BGC newsletter? It would be the highlight of my week to hear from you about it! Here’s who made my week:
Karlyn, a BGC subscriber, recently took me up on my offer to help brainstorm anniversary gifts for her husband. Along with some gift ideas, I offered her some advice that I think anyone should keep in mind when considering anniversary gifts.
