It's hard enough managing a small business but when you have to worry about your overflowing email inbox it can be overwhelming. A good way to start decluttering your inbox is to picture what you want it to look like.
Over at small business blog Flying Solo, Emma Heuston-Levack, outlined some tips on clearing out your emails so you can stop being a slave to your inbox. One of the advice she has for small business owners is to take a moment to ask the following questions:
- How do you picture your ideal day?
- What does your ideal email inbox look like?
After you have a clear idea of what this looks like, think about how you can achieve it.
Ways to reach your inbox goal might be to put in folders to organise your emails better or to unsubscribe to pesky newsletters.
