Email Etiquette Part #1

Email Etiquette Part #1

Alright folks. Let’s talk about something that happens to be one of my pet peeves. I know that sometimes we just don’t know certain things or do THIS by accident… I love (not really) getting an email and there are dozens and dozens of recipients that the email was sent to and the sender did not use the BCC option. So now I scroll through all of the email addresses (I just got one that probably had 200 names in it) and finally get to the message. This is the problem with sending a mass email to your list and NOT using the BCC option. My email address just got sent to your other contacts and well, it’s not polite to send a mass email so generically (see below for the exceptions). If you really want to make a connection to your email recipients and want a response from them, send them a personal email when possible. Okay, so let’s go over the rules: When you compose an email there are three fields: To, CC and BCC Use the To field when you are: Sending a personal email to just one person Sending an email to a specific group of several people who all know each other, especially when you want them to “reply all” so everyone can get their reply.

I was gauging my results from how I was feeling and how my clothes fit. I was consciously avoiding the scale. I don’t believe in having my scale rule my life and I admire some health mentors who have thrown out their scale because they are so in tune with their bodies that they don’t need to even look at the numbers. Let’s be honest. I’m not there yet. So I did a brave thing and I stepped on the scale. When I saw the number I was immediately clear of where I’m at and where I get to go on this weight release and vibrant health journey.  It propelled me into action because it wasn’t as easy to justify the current results I was creating. Taking ownership of where I am at empowered me to create my desired results. The same goes for owning the numbers in your business. When you look at the bottom line in your business there is no more justifying or “waiting” for things to improve by themselves. Looking at the numbers is the only way to know where to cut back, add more resources or maintain. Now here is the tricky...
