4: Don’t Read the Comments

This week, on Make New Mistakes, we issue a strong directive: for the sake of your sanity, don’t read the comments. Melissa and Taekia discuss what it’s like to provide a big service to so many people, and see your customers process it publicly on social media. We do know, however, that you will read the comments. We have strategies for wading through the deluge of comments, and how to integrate them, respond to them, or ignore them. For Mistakes in the News, we see how New Coke relates to our conventions, and a ridiculous medical mistake. Finally, we just came back from Con of Thrones so we have some fun on-site mistakes to report, and we’re getting our self care back on track. 

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram tell us about your new mistakes! Also, check out our website for links to Mistakes in the News. We’re actively looking for new questions, so please send us anything you’ve been wondering about to newmistakespod@gmail.com.

3: Everyone Can See You

This week, on Make New Mistakes, we ponder the question: what happens when everyone can see your mistake? Event planning has made us experts in public mistakes. Want to learn more about audience psychology? We have mistakes that we made and learned from and bring that knowledge to you. For Mistakes in the News, we talk about what large piles of money do and don’t mean for a business’s success. Finally, we tell you about our most recent mistakes and our self-care go-tos. Here’s Taekia’s self-care playlist of the moment.  

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram tell us about your new mistakes! Also, check out our website for pictures of the infamous spreadsheets (as soon as we find them). We’re actively looking for new questions, so please send us anything you’ve been wondering about to newmistakes@mischiefmedia.com.
