A beautifully decorated cake. Muffins that look divine. All the beauty of the world, all of the decorating technique and fondant available cannot save it from it’s inevitable fate: the first bite.
It’s amazing how just one bite can ruin all of that hard work. As they say, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating.”
You may have worked hard to put together a presentation, but have you proofread it?
Did you assemble a fantastic proposal with the best materials Staples could offer? I bet it looks phenomenal. What will happen when the client opens it? Are the pages in order? Do the labels match the titles?
Office Manager Tip: Just like you stick a fork in a cake to see if it's done, review scanned documents for legibility before sending. #OMTip

Did you scan a document then email it away without checking it first? Was it even the right attachment?
Did you even open it to check?

I’ve pressed “SEND” enough times to know this: there is such a thing as working too fast.
