Murphy’s Law in Business
Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong
Have you ever had one of those days when everything just seems to fall apart? Little things that can have a big impact on your day, like your alarm clock failing to ring in the morning or spilling coffee over your nice shirt right before a meeting with a client?
Surely, these misfortunes have happened to everyone at least once. Just when you are getting ready for an important presentation, the computer starts updating.
Or just when you feel 100% confident to land a customer and your best salesman calls in sick. Is that the moment you start panicking? Or not yet?

And then a bell rings in your head and you remember, Murphy’s law has found you again. Are you able to fix all of it? How to fight back? And what kind of impact will this bad mojo have on your business?
