Practice Makes Perfect - Even When Something Goes Wrong
What do you do when your presentation to a crowd of the most influential experts in your industry goes awry? Me&MyMoney CEO Mike Kozlak and CTO Alex Huff were faced with this nightmare at DEMO Fall 2011.
Despite practice, practice, practice, there is little that can be done when an internet connection doesn't cooperate - but punt. And punt they did. Mike clearly articulated what the demonstration would have shown resulting in a groundswell of support for the team from fellow DEMO participants - seems everyone can relate to this dreaded scenario.
The DEMO folks were equally supportive and willing to help make it right. A reshoot was done later in the session. We'll post it as soon as we can.
At the end of the day, it's preparing for the unexpected that saved the day. Mike and Alex had prepared for the possibility of having nothing to demonstrate in their many practice sessions. Their preparation is a best practice that truly paid off.
We can't help but find irony in what they experienced and the pain point we are helping to solve with the Me&MyMoney App and program - learning how to prepare and adjust your financial life for whatever comes your way.
Bravo Mike and Alex!
