Get Buttoned Up – Considering Email Bankruptcy? Listen to This First!

Are you an email addict? Are you drowning in your inbox? If you’re a “knowledge worker,” chances are you are suffering on one, if not both, of those fronts, which is why you should listen in as we talk with two experts about taming our addiction to email and regaining control of our inboxes. Our first guest, Marsha Egan, certified professional coach and author of Inbox Detox sheds light on the problem of email addiction and shares some practical solutions for getting bad email habits under control. Then we switch gears a bit and talk to onetime Microsoft employee Alex Kovalchuk who struck out on his own to start TechHit, a company that makes Outlook utilities like Simply File that dramatically improve productivity (not to mention sanity) levels. Learn why an algorithm may be better at taming your inbox than you are.
