Modern Etiquette: Five Ways to Say Thank You in the Digital Age by @inspiredbysgp

Thank you

by Tanea Smith

From the time I was a little girl I have been groomed for something. My mother gave me solid morals and work ethic. To this day I mimic her strength, calm under pressure, and dogged determination. My sister gave me a single piece of advice that changed my life and that was “Just Follow Through.” But my grandmother, who recently made her transition, taught me etiquette. The basic things. Little girls should be seen and not heard. How to make a bed, hotel style. How to set a table. And then, there’s her signature piece that serves me to this day, “How to Write a Thank You Note.” My grandmother believed that sending a handwritten thank you was an absolute must. It is classy, thoughtful and above all, it shows that you know “how to do.”

Here are several ways to send meaningful thank you notes in a modern world.

A Tribute to an Angel

flowers for MommyOn Friday, March 15th my beloved Grandmother made her transition.  She was the most unorthodox of grandmothers and that is why I loved her so. I affectionately called her “Mommy” and she was everything to me. Brash, unapologetic and full of the wisdom that only the women of a certain era possess.  She knew “how to do”, she spoke her mind and if you didn’t like it, well that was your problem.  She was witty and classy but with a Baltimore edge. Most importantly she was my staunch supporter. With every accomplishment she would say, “Well baby girl, you’re on your way”.  On the many occasions that I hit a bump, or took a wrong turn she would simply say “what you do now is up to you. I’m praying for you baby girl.”

Success With A Capital P

I’ve heard that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. When I started on my journey as an entrepreneur 4 years ago I didn’t have an inkling as to what I was in for. I had an idea, an uber fabulous name, She’s Got Papers, cash to begin, the support of my family, stacks of research that I printed from various websites and a pint of Prailines n’ Cream from Baskin & Robbins just in case things got sticky. My plan was simple. I was going to design stationery, market it to women via my website and it was going to sell. Read more…
