When I screw up, I take ownership of my mistakes. Intentional, unintentional, whatever the circumstances, I admit when I am wrong.
Back in March I hosted a give away on my blog for some Avon product. I had never done something like this so was a tad out of my league but did it anyway. The winner was posted and I ordered the product color she chose. It came in, I even went and purchased the packaging to mail the item, and then lost her address. I tried a few times to email her but it seems my emails did not go through, perhaps caught in a ISP server as spam, since Avon was mentioned in the email? I don’t know but that was not an excuse. I could have posted on my blog, and hope she saw it and contacted me. But I got busy and let it slip through the cracks.
Justifiably she is a bit miffed with me. I didn’t make enough effort to maintain contact and get her the prize in a timely fashion. The item is being mailed today.
Danyell – I do apologize that this has taken so long and for any frustrations this has caused.
As for me, far better organizational skills are needed. I used to be so good at this multi-tasking, 100 projects going at once thing, but that was in corporate America. I have the skills just need to dust them off, find a day planner and start DOING it. When people count on you to do things, it is only right that you be up on things and do them in a timely manner.
