On a slow day, I get around 60 to 75 emails. On a bad day I get around 200. For months I wrestled with trying to keep my inbox organized and not lose track of things – but it was tough. Eventually, I came up with a system that works well for me and I’m hoping it helps you with your inbox management goals.

Either way, I love the attempt at changing/enhancing the flying experience. Something to watch for. Could this work for other modes of travel? What about long drives? Lines in the grocery store?
Even if you don’t manage anyone, it’s good to know how to deal with these challenging personalities.
Social Media Week is upon us, so we thought it would be appropriate to delve into the social media industry and see how its salaries stack up. Social media is an evolving and cutting-edge field, so it should come as no surprise that you can make a great living managing a brand’s presence on Twitt…
Nice recap of things those in eCommerce should explore.

Ohhhh! It’s so precious.
Master Splinter just wants a cuddle.
