I was asked to present at the Small Business Tech Meetup held last night at Zoho Corporate HQ.
Email can be a huge time-waster, but it’s a necessary e̶v̶i̶l̶ tool for business, well, for life, actually.
Estimates vary, but the McKinsey Global Institute said in 2012 that an average employee spends 13 hours a week clearing their inbox and that it’s often the number one most time-consuming work activity. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that number has probably gone up. But let’s stick with that number for a minute.
Would you like to have just a portion of your life back from managing email? Let’s say you could recoup a little less than half of that time, we’ll call it 5 hours a week, just to be conservative. That’s about 250 hours a year, or 31 days or a whole damn month! A MONTH!!!!
Here’s a link to the prez I delivered at the Meetup with some strategies, habits and tools to help you do just that. Small Biz Tech Meetup August Prez
