One year when I had no money and was renting in a large expensive condo, I made 
certificates of appreciation for the 35 workers. I can’t even remember how many 
of the workers sought me out to say thank you. The doorman came running out 
across the driveway to shake my hand he was so happy. When it isn’t about 
money, it’s easier to be very grand in appreciations.

(I don’t know if they would have been as appreciative if I had lived there 
permanently and did that every year.)
