Excerpt from Lifescripts for the Self-Employed: 7. Apologizing to a Client for Your Own Mistake Icebreaker: I've made a miscalculation that has created a problem for you. I have what I believe is a solution, but first I need to apologize to you. When I was scheduling your project I failed to take into account that there were two religious holidays that fell during the time I'd set aside for printing. We're not going to be able to meet the schedule I'd laid out for you. Accepting: I'm not happy about this, but I admire your candor. I want you to know I expect special help from you. Now what's your plan? Angry: I can't believe you could have been so stupid and negligent. What were you thinking? Weren't you paying attention? What's wrong with you?
