OK, today at work I made a scrupious fruit tarty thing and brought it to work announcing my business. I am even doing a "spring preview" catalog show with the new catalog and not turning it in until after March 1. My problem is this: almost two months ago a coworker started passing out catalogs for his wife who was having a show. He is just NOW collecting payments for orders made in early January, and now I have people saying, "Gee I wish I had ordered from you instead!!" because they had not gotten what they ordered yet! My worries is that it is going to hamper my reputation as a PC consultant here because a host with another consultant has taken so long to close a show! I'm really worried about what to do. I think some people are avoiding me at work now.
