Feeling overwhelmed by email? In this episode, I share some of my best tips and practices for taming the email monster -- strategies I've learned from processing millions of emails and messages over the years (I get hundreds of emails/messages every day, so I've had to learn to be efficient!)

In addition to talking about email, Jesse and I chat about Kathrynne's new job, I share a really personal email that encouraged me (shared with permission!), we talk about two books we're reading/listening to, and Jesse gives us an update on his whitewater rafting trip.

This episode was a little longer than usual, but I hope you enjoy us taking a little bit more time to share some life updates and things we're learning and reading and thinking about.
