As a self-employed marketer, I have lived and died by email for the past 10 years. It’s been at the center of my business and personal life for everything from sales to socializing. But over the past year or two, the daily flow of email has become totally unmanageable. Something had to be done. I took bold action. So why do I feel guilty?
My incoming email is down to a trickle since I added this autoresponder:
Dear colleagues & friends: I am checking email only a couple of times a day because I am totally overwhelmed with unnecessary emails.
So, if something is pressing, please call me.
If not, understand that I will be back to you in hours rather than minutes. Thank you!
