    You know that feeling when you finally get to Inbox Zero? What if you could do that every day? If you're thinking this is an impossible task, I don't blame you. Emails feel like the bane of my existence. Sure, we don’t want to miss the important stuff but no one wants to spend half a day sifting through spam and other irrelevant content. However, there are measures you can put in place to make managing your inbox less of a chore. In this episode, Jess Lindgren, administrative professional extraordinaire, shares some tips on how to spend less time sifting through emails and more time in our zone of genius.
    Note - In this episode I mentioned a Gmail feature called "Canned Responses." This feature is now called "Templates." I apologize for any confusion!
    Special Guest: Jess Lindgren has worked in the C-Suite of organizations great and small for 18+ years. She focuses on supporting her current CEO in his many endeavors, improving working relationships between CEOs and the EAs who support them, and has very low tolerance for any meeting that should have been an email. Jess hosts the wildly popular* business podcast, Ask An Assistant.

So tune into this episode to learn how to start blogging in no time. Even if you already have a blog, you just may learn something new!

Influencer education - not just for influencers! 🥳

I love this podcast. I blog for fun (haven’t tapped into turning it into a side hustle), but this podcast is chock full of helpful information. Mindy is a wonderful host and has had some fab/informed guests. Highly recommend a listen regardless of where you fall on the blogging/social media spectrum.

Guess the words ,

I love this podcast!!!
