Give it Time and Space

Steer had made a lapse in judgement and ran an add that was meant to compete with another company but came off as an angry attack. He certainly didn’t intend for it to come off like that, but the more people say it the angrier they became. Customers were starting to leave or demand answers from Steer. Each time he tried to reply it seemed he only made this worse. Steer realized the best thing for him to do at the moment was step away from the spotlight of business and give it some space. The other owners would run things until it got back on track. Sometimes, when bad things happen, giving time and space is the only correct approach.

Tell the Truth and Fix What’s Been Broken

There was a mistake. Mouse had let orders go out that contained absolutely nothing in them. Large orders at that. When the calls started pouring in of angry businesses that had trusted their supply to be filled, Mouse was frazzled. As much as he wanted to bury his head in the sand and let someone else deal with it all, or blame it on the workers, he called each one back and apologized for his error. He sent them all the correct orders at a big discount so their loyalty was given due respect.

Some said no to the logo, but most agreed to the idea. So that evening before the purchase Gecko thought long and hard about what to do. It seemed almost dumb not to put his logo on each and every item. It was a huge lost opportunity to send out random items without his logo on them.
