The big day is almost here. We are days away. NO… I’m not talking about Christmas. I’m talking about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens!”

I will be there at 11 p.m., Thursday, ready to have all my questions answered. Will you? It’s a good thing this is the last Ben Thinking of the year… I don’t know if I could avoid spoilers next week!

Bring on this week’s stories:

1. Five social media trends you need to know about. We have talked about a lot of this as the year’s gone on. I would implore you to pay extra attention to numbers two and four. If we haven’t talked about what this means for you yet… we should before we get too deep into January.

2. The five intangibles your employees want from you. So simple. So true. So easy… yet so hard.

3. Seven storytelling tips, Pixar style. Look, I love kids movies. But “The Good Dinosaur” was terrible. But that didn’t stop me from reading and recommending this piece with the movie’s writer, who provides some great inspiration for storytelling. The last is my favorite. If you write… anything… you’ll want to read this.

4Five advantages millennials have over everyone else. I think 2015 taught us a lot about millennials. Here are five reasons why we should be tapping into them more.

5. So how accurate were those 2015 digital marketing trends? We started off talking about 2016 trends. But what about 2015? Are we fully integrated into the digital landscape yet?

Thank you to everyone for reading and sharing this round-up with your co-workers and friends. You have no idea how much I enjoy sharing this, connecting with you and hearing from you. Have a fantastic holiday break and look for me on I’ve Ben Thinking again on January 11, 2016. (Weird to type that!)
