MMMM Food For Thought – Admit It

Admit It

Food For Thought

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

I made a mistake. I called a client, and told her something. It could have caused her to rearrange her schedule. A short time later, I realized my mistake.

I could have saved face, and let it seem like I knew what I was doing. She would have had to scramble, possibly change other appointments, make child care arrangements…who knows. That would have kept me from admitting any problems with my habits and “systems.”

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?
