It’s a given that anyone in business will have their ups and downs. One of the most difficult parts of the business that we must embrace with grace, is things WILL go wrong.

Sometimes our service or product isn’t up to par, no matter how hard we work at it, no matter how much heart we put into the service, no matter how much confidence we have put in our quality.

Someone, somewhere WILL be disspointed. In fact, they will be plain pissed.

From time to time, I, myself falter in my efforts. Sometimes I miscalculate a shipment, or forget a print here or there.

Sometimes a customer just didn’t care for the quality or expected something completely different.
