I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!
Now I would not say that I am the queen of keeping my email inbox empty… but I am highly obsessed with keeping it regularly cleaned out. I really think that keeping certain areas of your business life clean and organized can tremendously affect your work ethic! For me, when my inbox is overflowing with emails, I can’t focus on my other tasks, like editing!
It’s actually one of the first things I do when I get into my office every morning. I sit down, and almost immediately start going through my emails. I try to be done with business things by around 5pm, so there’s typically a few client emails waiting. If I can go ahead and knock those out, then I’m free to spend the rest of my time editing!
So here are the steps that I use to keep this little corner of my business a little neater:
For example, I just now got a notification that I had an email from Borrowed & Blue. I’m going to go check it super fast, and archive it when I’m done. Boom, back to zero!
One of the really great things about keeping your inbox cleared out, is it forces you to get your crap done. I have occasionally had an email or two sitting in my inbox for a few days, because I need to remember to do it. Like paying my phone bill… Now I almost immediately pay it, because if I don’t, the email will just sit in my inbox and stress me out.
Wow, that really says something about me if I would way rather pay my phone bill than simply have an email sit in my inbox… hahaha.
Hopefully these tips help you to manage your emails! It’s honestly become something that I enjoy doing. I love taking time to respond to inquiries and client questions! Once you get your inbox down to the bare minimum, it will make your life SO much less stressful! I promise!
