Harman Law - March/April 2020

Whose PicksWill Go All theWay?


Reward the winners with prizes.

One of the greatest things about March Madness is that you don’t have to be a huge college basketball fan to get in on the fun. Kids of all ages can fill out brackets — or have a parent fill one out for them — and watch their picks duke it out on the court. While healthy competition among family members can be fun all on its own, check out the following tips if you’re looking to go the extra mile and reap as much fun from March Madness as you can. Not every kid may like watching basketball, but if they fill out a bracket, then they might gain at least a passing interest in who will win each game. To elevate their interest, turn each March Madness matchup into a little party. It doesn’t have to be fancy; make fun snacks to eat while you watch or bet pieces of candy on who will have the most points to create great family bonding opportunities. Turn each game into an event.

Offer prizes to each round winner as well as the overall bracket winner to get the whole family involved. Small prize ideas for each round can include a homemade dinner of the winner’s choice, a week’s supply of their favorite snack, or a coupon for getting out of a chore. Whoever wins the whole tournament (or makes it the furthest with their bracket) deserves a bigger reward. Offer them the chance to see a movie of their choice in theaters or to eat a meal at their favorite restaurant.

Create a learning opportunity.

Learning math or geography might not sound like your child’s idea of fun, but it can be when they learn it through the lens of March Madness. See if your kids would be interested in understanding the inner workings of the ranking system or studying where some of the

qualifying colleges are located on a map of the United States. They may find it so interesting that they don’t even realize they’re learning valuable skills.

Happy Employee Appreciation Day!

Did you know that Friday, March 6, was Employee Appreciation Day? It isn’t an official national holiday, but I still thought it was worth celebrating because to be honest, my staff deserves a shout-out every day of the year. According to NationalDayCalendar. com, Employee Appreciation Day was started back in 1995 by Dr. Bob Nelson, a businessman and author who has published multiple books about how important it is to recognize and reward employees for their hard work. Every company that celebrates Employee Appreciation Day does it in a different way, but some of the recommendations include sending out thank-you notes, putting on a team celebration, giving positive feedback, and encouraging new skills. Personally, I think Bob had a great point when he had his 1995 brainwave. Here at Harman Law, I wouldn’t be able to

touch nearly as many lives without my incredible, hardworking staff here to help. They have my back, and it’s not an exaggeration to say they’ve made my dream possible, so the least I can do is support, encourage, and thank them! So, to Catherine, Neidy, Samantha, and everyone else who keeps Harman Law running every day, thank you for everything you do! I see the hard work you put in for our clients every day, and I’m beyond appreciative. If you have worked or are currently working with Harman Law on a case and someone on staff has made your day, or gone above and beyond to help you out, I’d love to hear about it! Feel free to share your experience with me directly by emailing me at michael@harmanlawnc.com so I can recognize their hard work! –Michael Harman
