Feeling overwhelmed by email? In this episode, I share some of the best tips and practices for taming the email monster – strategies I’ve learned from processing millions of emails and messages over the years (I receive hundreds of emails/messages every day, so I had to learn how to be effective!)
In addition to email talk, Jesse and I talk about Catherine’s new job, share a really personal email that encouraged me (shared with permission!), talk about two books we’re reading/listening to, and Jesse gives us an update on our whitewater kayaking trip.
This episode was a little longer than usual, but I hope you enjoyed taking a little longer to share some of the life updates and things we’re learning, reading and thinking about.
