When doing that people are like no, I will be out of the office...even though it is only 1 day out they try and use that as an excuse..so trying to figure another way around it!ย

You could try sending a calendar meeting invite for after the holiday and see if they accept it.

Is there a pressing reason you have to have it prior to the holiday? I would just send over a few options for before and after and they pick what they pick.

Try and squeeze it in before, typically prospects are nicer heading to a holiday than when playing catchup afterย

truth is that you can easily reschedule stuff. not many folks will care. and if they move the meeting and they cancel they would prob buy anyway.ย 

you will get more meetings and more sales in life but holidays with your close ones (especially on the older side) are limited.

Team stand ups normally last max 20 min, with WFH would you rather have your teams camera on or off? What has worked for you to get maximum value from your teams and set the tone for the day?
