We’ve all experienced Inbox Overwhelm! It’s one of those things that can creep up on you, and before you know it there are 100+ or even 1000+ emails banked up in your Inbox waiting to be deleted, filed, responded to, read, or forwarded. There are so many decisions that need to be made every time you access your inbox – and if it’s cluttered, this becomes even harder. In today’s episode of The Business Efficiency Podcast, I want to provide you with some tips and strategies to help you manage your Inbox more effectively. This may mean some culling, some organisation and putting in some processes to help you make those decisions with more ease. These strategies will help you stay on top so that emails don’t bank up so much in the future, and your Inbox is a place that allows you to feel in control and communicate with ease. In this episode, I cover:

- With this awareness, you can put in place various strategies to manage these types, such as
