How and Why to Set Up Your Email Automated Responder

Most people rarely if ever use the Vacation Responder tool in email. When they do, it's typically employed for literal instances of vacation or perhaps extended sick leaves or maternity leave. But you know what? You can type whatever you want into a Responder, and so you really do not need to limit your use to times when you are not working. No really. You can.

Let's Talk Theory: The Self-Isolating Mistake You Can't Afford to Make

I have a little childhood anecdote for you that has helped me indicate how I do business AND relationships in general. I call it the 'French Braid Theory' because it all began as a blip of a conversation between two second grade girls chatting about the challenge of learning to French braid.

Ready to hear it?

 

Pin it and save it for later!!
