Mid-Week Reload: A Flood of Productivity?

Mid-Week Reload #1

Welcome to the new “Mid-Week Reload!” Marketing Mercenary found the Monday Morning posts difficult to do “regularly,” so I’m moving the post to mid-week. In addition, I’m refocusing on articles that are hopefully helpful to your work, rather than topics that are merely interesting to discuss.

Food For Thought

It’s Marketing Mercenary’s Monday Morning, and here’s what I’m chewing on.

But, instead, I called again. I had to apologize for my mistake, and any inconvenience it might have already caused. As far as I know, I didn’t cause her any major problems.

This happened with a brand new client. Would this matter to you?

What would you have done? What if it had been much more major – what then?
