You’ve likely missed a train because it arrived too early or were late to an appointment because it arrived late.

Reality check –imagine you’re having a Social media PR crisis… now what?

It’s Monday morning; you go to check your email. Email one; it’s your Webmaster (who also serves as your Media Director). You find out that over the weekend he’s suddenly become afflicted with amnesia! Not to worry, it is obviously not severe; he still remembers how to email. Hmm. Weird!
